Ditton Place is set amidst the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty in 15 acres of wonderful grounds and was designed by the architects Cecil Brewer and Alfred Dunbar Smith in 1904. Built in the William and Mary style this incredible country home has far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and neatly tended gardens and grounds (including a tennis court and boules pitch). This fabulous apartment on the first floor is extremely quiet and offers multiple period features, original cabinets, fireplaces throughout and excellent views across the downs. It has a wonderful double aspect drawing room with a lovely oval window, elegant dining room and a charming kitchen/breakfast area which gets the morning sun. With two excellent double bedrooms (one ensuite) and a further bathroom, this superb property also benefits from a terrace overlooking the grounds. Presented in very neat order throughout this property would make a wonderful base in the country or an elegant and easily maintainable home. Approached via a long tree-lined sweeping driveway, Ditton Place is just 3 miles from Balcombe Village with its local shops, inn, 13th century parish church and a mainline railway station, Staplefield and Handcross are also nearby. For a more comprehensive range of recreational and shopping facilities, Haywards Heath, Horsham and Brighton are all easily accessible. The surrounding countryside offers a vast range of beautiful walks with the Ardingly Reservoir and the Ashdown Forest National Park providing a wide range of other sporting activities. Fast train access to London, Gatwick or Brighton is found at Balcombe, Three Bridges or Haywards Heath train stations, all close by.
