A substantial wing of an Edwardian country house with superb views towards the South Downs

THE PROPERTY

Burchetts is the major part of a wonderful Edwardian country house dating from 1905. The property has several distinctive characteristics, with a triple aspect drawing room which would have been the main drawing room for the original house. A turned oak staircase leading to a half landing with glorious paned glass windows overlooking the gardens towards the South Downs. The principle rooms are all typical Edwardian character, with high ceilings, bay and paneled windows, paneled dining room and study and with fantastic uninterrupted views towards the South Downs. There are also two marbled fireplaces. The overall accommodation consists of four double bedrooms, one ensuite and one family bathroom. Off the internal entrance hall on the ground floor there is a kitchen with a larder and separate entrance, a sitting room leading to a conservatory, a formal drawing room, a dining room, a study and a downstairs cloakroom. In total the property comprises 3,983 GIA sqft. The house is approached via a tree-lined driveway leading from Station Road, which leads through a pillared entrance to a parking area ahead of the house. The gardens and grounds of approximately 3.6 acres lie predominantly to the south and west of the house, and largely comprise laid to lawn, interspersed by shrub beds and dotted with trees. North Chailey with its petrol station / shop and tea rooms is next to the popular village of Newick, which provides a good range of facilities including a village shop, bakery, post office, primary school, parish church, two public houses, two restaurants, doctor's surgery and pharmacy. Piltdown Golf Club is just 4 miles east of the house. The old market town of Haywards Heath lies to the west and provides an extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities, together with a mainline train service to London (London Bridge/Victoria approx 44 minutes). The historic county town of Lewes is about 8 miles, with Gatwick airport being some 28 miles to the northwest. The city of Brighton & Hove is about 15 miles, whilst the A23, lies to the west of Haywards Heath providing fast access to the M23/M25 and, in turn, the national motorway network. There is an excellent selection of established preparatory and public schools in the area. These include Ashdown House, Brambletye, Cumnor House, and Great Walstead, together with Ardingly College, Hurstpierpoint College, Worth School, Benenden School and St. Leonard's Mayfield School
