About this property

  • Paddocks Land is a handsome and impressive family home, dating from the 1920s and ideally located on the edge of the sought-after village of Cuckfield – almost equidistant between Cuckfield's historic High Street and Haywards Heath's mainline railway station.

    The house has recently been the subject of extension, remodelling and comprehensive refurbishment, resulting in a substantial and very well presented family home of 3,500 square feet, that is both impressive yet comfortable. Of particular note is the double-storey extension to the eastern side of the house, creating a generous and superbly appointed kitchen, with a wonderful principal bedroom suite over. Further points of note include replacement double glazing throughout, luxury vinyl tile flooring through much of the house, some original joinery and ceiling timbers, and stylish modern bathroom suites.

    The front door opens to an entrance lobby, off which lies a useful boot room and a cloakroom, which in turn opens to a spacious and welcoming entrance hall. There are four versatile reception rooms: the large, dual-aspect sitting room has sliding doors opening to the terrace and features an original brick fireplace with inset Stovax woodburner; it adjoins an equally large family or games room also with doors to the garden. The snug (which could also be a good-sized study) lies across the hall. The formal dining room overlooks the garden and has sliding doors opening to the garden; steps descend to the kitchen, an elegant and light-filled room with a high ceiling and striking, three-quarter height picture windows to one corner framing the view down the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of pale grey shaker-style cabinetry and a central island, with white quartz worktops and a range of high-end integrated appliances; a well-fitted utility room lies off the rear hall.

    There are seven bedrooms on the first floor, two currently used as home working spaces. They include a superb principal bedroom suite in the newest part of the house, comprising a vaulted bedroom, dressing room and a luxurious en suite shower room; the remaining bedrooms are served by two bathrooms, both re-fitted with stylish contemporary suites.

    Outside
    Paddocks Land is accessed from Tylers Green via a pillared entrance opening to a newly re-gravelled parking area ahead of the detached double garage. There is gated access to the eastern side of the house to the partially re-landscaped rear garden which is of particular note: well enclosed by fencing and mature trees, and gently sloping down away from the house over a series of terraces, enhancing the view down the garden to the band of woodland beyond.

    Spanning the rear of the house is a paved terrace and seating area, with steps descending to a further decked terrace with timber pergola. The remainder of the garden is largely laid to lawn, dotted with flower and shrub beds, some young trees, a small ornamental pond (not currently in operation) and a third decked seating area. Towards the northern end of the property the garden has been left as a wild garden, lightly wooded and with a chain of small natural ponds running alongside the western boundary.

    In all, about 0.51 of an acre.
