About this property

  • Wildwood is a superbly presented new build detached house, built in classic Sussex style with elevations hung in hand-made clay tiles and brick under a handcrafted clay tiled roof. The house was completed in 2020 and is finished to a high specification throughout; it is offered with no onward chain and a 10 year NHBC warranty.

    It lies in a woodland setting within Maresfield Park, an exclusive private estate within the historic village of Maresfield; the village is on the edge of the stunning 6,500 acre Ashdown Forest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering exceptional walking and riding.

    The property extends to a generous 2,737 sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors and has been thoughtfully designed to meet the expectations of modern family life.

    The property has been beautifully decorated in a soft neutral palette, and is finished to a high standard giving a sense of luxury throughout, with zoned underfloor heating and quality fittings, including engineered oak doors and flooring, porcelain tiling in all bathrooms, and Aqualisa showers. The house is prewired for Sky, TV and telephone.

    The full layout and extent of the property can be seen on the floorplans; points of note include the dual aspect sitting room, with a Clearview woodburning stove with bespoke limestone surround, and full width bi-fold doors to the rear terrace. There is a study/garden room lying off the hall. The hub of this home is the triple aspect kitchen/dining/family room, with plenty of space for dining table and chairs, sofa, and again full width bi-fold doors to the terrace. The Sheraton kitchen is a particular highlight, beautifully fitted with painted wall and base units under quartz worktops. Appliances include a Neff induction hob and double oven, integrated Neff fridge and freezer and Bosch dishwasher and wine cooler. The kitchen is served by a separate utility room with an adjoining cloakroom.

    The first floor is approached by the bespoke oak staircase. The spacious master bedroom suite has a Juliet balcony with views over the rear garden, a dressing room, and a luxurious en suite bathroom, with an oval free-standing bath, walk-in shower and a pair of vanity units.
    There are three further double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom.

    Wildwood is set in grounds of about a third of an acre, and is approached via a short spur from The Drive, over a gravelled driveway which leads up to the parking area with space for several cars, a double open bay car port and the house. A path leads around to the side and rear access; spanning the rear elevation is an Indian limestone terrace for al fresco entertaining.

    The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn. It is well screened to the side by mature hedging and trees which, with the close-board fencing along the rear and northern boundaries, gives a secluded feel. There is chestnut post and rail fencing to the front, in line with the woodland setting.

I particularly like the finish this property offers- it's both elegant and luxurious. A fantastic family house, ready to move into.
