OLD FURNACE | A stunning family home set in six acres of gardens & grounds on the sought after Copyhold Lane, Cuckfield. Exceptional social kitchen, equestrian facilities and a secluded, yet convenient location for commuting.

The House...
'Old Furnace' occupies a secluded & private position at the end of Copyhold Lane, arguably the most sought after location in Mid Sussex and has been the subject of meticulous renovation & upgrading in recent years. The result is a truly exceptional family home with stunning living & bedroom spaces and glorious open outlooks in a tranquil, yet convenient setting.

Upon entry, you are welcomed by a central galleried reception hall which provides access to the main ground floor living spaces.
The fabulous 'T' shaped kitchen/dining/family room truly is the focal point of the house and provides the perfect space for both entertaining guests and everyday family living. This impressive space extends to 35ft max x 35ft max with two sets of folding doors providing a fantastic 'inside-outside' feel, both underfloor heating & air conditioning, marble tiled flooring and views over the gardens. A notable feature is the large glazed roof lantern which floods this room with an abundance of natural light. The kitchen itself is superbly appointed by 'Martin Moore' and boasts a breakfast bar & central island with seating for five, a selection of 'Miele' appliances including integrated fridge freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher, an Aga range oven, 'Teppanyaki Hot Plate' and granite worksurfaces.

The formal sitting room is triple aspect, extends to 26ft x 23ft and offers an inviting retreat with a large Inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove - ideal for the winter evenings. This room is also used as the home cinema with an inset 'Pure Theatre' system and ceiling speakers. The ground floor also includes a separate study, utility/boot room with dog shower, play room and two cloakrooms.

A turned staircase rises to the first floor galleried landing, which leads to the stunning 26ft master bedroom. This splendid suite provides a spacious bedroom, luxurious en-suite with 'his & hers' wash basins, deep bathtub & walk-in 'Drench' shower and a large walk-in dressing room with fitted storage.
The second bedroom is approx 21ft with a 13ft vaulted ceiling and has a glazed apex gable and full width folding doors making the most of the beautiful, far reaching views over the grounds. The bedroom also enjoys a sleek en-suite with both bath & shower. There is a further double bedroom with en-suite, guest double bedroom & modern family bathroom.

The house boasts an array of impressive technology including CCTV, alarm system, an inset 'Sonos' speaker system. With contemporary styling and impressive dimensions the finishes are first class and there is quality at every turn.

Outside, the six acres of gardens & grounds are predominantly south facing. The formal garden enjoys a large paved terrace immediately adjacent to the house - perfect for 'al-fresco' dining. There is also a large expanse of lawn and enclosed heated swimming pool.

Post & railing fencing separates the garden from the paddocks which are divided into three main fields. There is the recently built 'Old Furnace Stables' which include three stables, tack room, hay store and yard area. There is also a manege (sandschool). There is a further triple barn providing large storage.
To the front the house is approached by a sweeping gated driveway which provides ample parking. There is a detached double garage with studio above. This studio has granted planning permission for conversion into a one bedroom annexe. There is also a two-bay timber barn with tiled roof for further garaging.
