A truly exceptional detached family residence, set in the heart of the highly sought-after 'Lucastes' area of western Haywards Heath, within a half-mile of the mainline station. The house is believed to date from 1912 and has been meticulously maintained by the current owners who have been in residence for over thirty years.
There is a wealth of retained character including high ceilings, some leaded light windows, picture rails, panelled doors and original fireplaces. These charming features are combined with high specification modern finishes including the stylish kitchen/diner and exceptional 'all-year-around' conservatory - both with underfloor heating.
Upon entry you are welcomed by an impressive reception hall with the beautiful turned staircase being the focal point. There are two further reception rooms, ideal for family living and entertaining guests. The formal drawing room is particularly inviting and enjoys a lovely dual aspect with two bay windows (one with window seat) overlooking the front gardens. The sitting room is also spacious and has a door leading through to the 16ft x 15ft conservatory. The conservatory was added in 2006 and is flooded with natural light, overlooks the rear garden and the 'French' doors onto the terrace make this a great 'inside-outside' space during the summer months.
The social kitchen/diner extends to 26ft and enjoys composite ceramic worktops, range of integrated appliances and a part-vaulted ceiling with two skylight windows. Steps lead down to a particularly large utility room which houses a cloakroom and leads through to the integral double garage with electronic overhead door.
A turned staircase rises to the first floor landing which boasts the master bedroom with large en-suite, two further double bedrooms, shower room and cloakroom (which could be knocked through to create one family bathroom, if required).
The second floor would make an ideal space for an au-pair and boasts two large double bedrooms and a bathroom. There are superb green outlooks from this floor looking south and east.
In full the accommodation extends to an impressive 3,662 sq ft.
Further attributes include a new roof (2015), gas fired central heating, mainly double-glazed windows and neutral decoration.Outside...
