Beautifully presented Victorian semi-detached house in this prestigious area of Haywards Heath.
Dating from 1901, 37 Muster Green South is an impressive and beautifully presented Victorian semi-detached house situated in a prestigious area in the centre of Haywards Heath, opposite the historic Green. The house was the subject of extension and a comprehensive programme of refurbishment in 2008/9, resulting in a stunning family home extending to a generous 3,555 square feet, combining a pleasing mix of elegant period features and modern finishes. Points of note include a Poggenpohl kitchen, contemporary white bathroom suites, timber framed double glazed windows, both original and replacement, wooden flooring through much of the ground floor, high ceilings, and underfloor heating through the hall, TV room and kitchen.
The floor plan gives an excellent overview of the full extent of the accommodation, though there are many features worthy of particular note. A solid wood front door opens to the spacious reception hall, flooded with light by way of a glass roof lantern, and with an excellent range of fitted storage cupboards. There are two reception rooms and a study lying off the hall, including an elegant formal sitting room featuring a cast iron fireplace with inset gas fire, and French doors opening to the terrace.
The kitchen, dining and family room is a superb space, ideal for family living and entertaining alike. There is large glazed roof lantern, and full height windows along two sides of the room have the ability to open completely creating a large entertaining space flowing seamlessly from the house to the garden. The kitchen is a fitted with a range of Poggenpohl units set off by seamless Corian worktops and breakfast bar, and a range of high-end Miele appliances; there is ample space for a large dining table and seating.
A door under the staircase opens to stairs descending to the cellar, which comprises a large utility/laundry room with space for appliances, a wine store with range of bespoke shelving, and an original Butler's pantry.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor including the master suite, which comprises a bedroom with private south-facing rooftop balcony, a well-fitted dressing room and a generous shower room. The other bedrooms on the first floor are served by a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. The three remaining bedrooms are on the second floor, together with a further shower room. The second floor bedrooms are all charming vaulted rooms, two being south-facing with wonderful far-reaching views to the South Downs.
37 Muster Green South is well set back from the road, with a long gravelled driveway and parking area edged by shrubs creating an impressive approach and offering ample parking for several cars. The south-facing rear garden is beautifully landscaped and enclosed by fencing, bamboo and mature laurel and beech hedging. The Travertine tiled flooring from the kitchen extends out of the house to form a stylish and private terrace; there are removable poles in place to support a shade sail canopy. The remainder of the garden is largely laid to an expanse of lawn, edged by shaped shrub and flower borders. A gravelled pathway, part covered by a timber pergola, leads down the eastern side of the garden to the far end, where there is a timber storage shed.
The light fittings in the TV room and hall are excluded from the sale.
The TVs and sound bars, plus some appliances and furniture may be available by separate negotiation.

The substantial kitchen / dining / living space with glazed roof lantern, which opens up to the garden and terrace on two sides, is an inspired addition. This must be one of the most desirable homes currently on the market in Haywards Heath.Rohan Vines
