DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY | An excellent opportunity to acquire this detached Edwardian house, requiring refurbishment but with a potential building plot/scope for renovation/extension (stpp) in Stockcroft Road, one of the Balcombe's premier roads.

An Overview....
A rare chance to acquire handsome Edwardian house sitting on a plot of approximately 1/3 of acre with potential development opportunities. In our opinion, there is potential to split the existing plot and build a separate detached dwelling to the south part. Alternatively the house lends itself to substantial extension, if required. Any development or extension would of course be subject to gaining all required planning permission & consents.


The existing house, 'The Briars', does now require considerable renovation but retains a wealth of archetypal Edwardian features including high ceilings, fireplaces & bay windows which could be beautifully restored. The accommodation provides is typical of a home built in the Edwarian era with spacious dimensions, including three formal reception rooms, a central reception hall, three large double bedrooms and nursey/single fourth bedroom.


There is also plenty of scope to extend to the rear to create an impressive open plan kitchen/dining/family room which would enjoy the beautiful open outlook to the rear. The large loft space would also lend itself to conversion in to a stunning master bedroom suite with stunning views to the rear. Again, this would be STPP.

Viewing...
This unique opportunity would suit a wide range of prospective purchasers and viewing can be arranged via prior appointment.

The Location...
The Briars is situated in Stockcroft Road, one of the premier residential roads within the sought after village of Balcombe. Village facilities include numerous shops and stores, tea room, village pubs, social club, church, sports clubs, primary school and the mainline train station providing links to London, Gatwick Airport and Brighton.


Haywards Heath and Crawley offer more extensive shopping and leisure facilities in addition to mainline railway stations (Haywards Heath to Victoria or London Bridge both approximately 47mins). By road, access to surrounding areas can be gained via the A23(M) which lies approximately 4.5 miles to the west at Handcross or north at Maidenbower.


Balcombe is surrounded by beautiful Sussex countryside. To the east are Balcombe lake & Ardingly Reservoir with their variety of footpaths, bridleways and angling facilities. The area is renowned for the standard of its schooling in both the private and state sectors with Balcombe Primary School being particularly reputable. A school bus runs through the village providing transport to Warden Park secondary school in the neighbouring village of Cuckfield. In the private sector Worth School is less than 4 miles distant in Turners Hill, whilst Ardingly College, Great Walstead and Burgess Hill School for Girls are all easily accessible.
