A FANTASTIC BARN CONVERSION, WITH A WIDE RANGE OF OUTBUILDINGS (OFFERING ENORMOUS DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL), STABLES AND LAND, SWIMMING POOL AND MAGNIFICENT VIEWS TO THE SOUTH FROM A GLORIOUS ELEVATED POSITION.

THE PROPERTY

Woolpack Farm Barn was converted in 2003/2004 and offers a wonderful, contemporary spacious family home with glorious views across its own land and grounds. This home offers the best of both worlds, a beautiful modern home but with all the wow factor of a traditional barn, with a magnificent full-height central chimney stack, and an open fire to the large drawing room. Arranged over two floors and extending to over 2,700 square feet, the barn has partial tiled floors with underfloor heating with large expanses of glass to enhance the light and views to perfection which afford a seamless connection to the beautiful grounds beyond. Entering the barn through a spacious entrance hall/boot room there are many fitted cupboards and good storage. Off this hall is a further entrance which provides direct access to an office/shower room/kitchenette which could be used as a small studio annexe. The ground floor is arranged for modern family living as well as informal and formal entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room has a large array of fitted units, with a central island, quartz and stone worktops and stainless-steel detailing. There is a four-oven Aga and Fisher & Paykel and Gaggenau appliances. Double glass doors open onto a delightful orangery style conservatory, offering either a dining room space or casual sitting room with spectacular views across the countryside to the south. A particular feature of this home is the stunning drawing room, part double vaulted, with full height windows and French doors, offering large seating areas and fantastic light and views. The second floor is arranged to provide four bedrooms, the principal bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. An additional bathroom, shower room and a small laundry room complete the first-floor accommodation. The property is approached from a lovely country lane leading north from the sought-after village of Fletching, via a tarmac driveway which leads directly up to the barn and continues around to a large, gated parking area immediately to the south of the house. The enclosed formal garden lies to the rear (west) of the house, mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by a post and rail fence. A large, paved terrace extends across the back of the house offering plenty of space for al-fresco entertaining. The swimming pool lies to the southwest corner of the garden, edged with paving and a timber pool house. An extensive range of large outbuildings lie to the north of the house and can be separately accessed via two further gated entrances off Bell Lane. These comprehensive outbuildings already provide an incredible opportunity for business and/or agricultural use. However, there is enormous potential for the development of these buildings subject to planning consent. Please call Jackson-Stops to discuss this further. Woolpack Farm Barn has gardens and paddock of circa 13 acres in total. The paddock extends below the garden and is enclosed by post & rail fencing, bordered by woodland with access from the paddock. An additional 44 acres are available under separate negotiation - please ask Jackson-Stops for details. Woolpack Farm Barn is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds and is set in an idyllic, rural location just outside the village of Fletching. Fletching itself is a glorious village with a pretty church, cricket pitch, an award-winning pub - The Griffin and a village shop. There is easy access along the A272 to the commuter town of Haywards Heath, with its mainline train service to both London Victoria and London Bridge (approx. 42 mins). The historic market town of Uckfield is also nearby. Located in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the surrounding countryside provides a vast range of sporting and recreational activity. Glyndebourne, Goodwood, Ardingly Showground and Plumpton are all within easy reach. The local footpaths provide a large network of stunning walks from the village, many leading towards the South Downs and Ashdown Forest. There are excellent golf courses nearby and reservoirs for water sports. The area boasts many highly renowned schools including Great Walstead, Cumnor House, Brambletye and Ardingly Prep amongst others. There are also superb secondary schools such as Ardingly College, Worth Abbey, Hurstpierpoint College and Burgess Hill Girls.
