PRESTIGE & POTENTIAL | An exciting opportunity to acquire a four bedroom detached home with superb garden and vast potential in one of Haywards Heath's most desirable roads.

The House...
An exciting opportunity to acquire a four bedroom detached family home with a superb garden, situated on Lucastes Road - one of the most sought after residential positions within the 'Lucastes Conservation Area' on the favoured west side of Haywards Heath.

Although now requiring complete modernisation this house, in our opinion, offers an abundance of potential for substantial extension and/or remodelling to create a stunning detached residence in a most favoured and highly convenient location.

As it stands the house offers well-proportioned accommodation over two floors. The ground floor comprises: entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen, dining area and the 20ft triple aspect sitting room with open fireplace and door on to the garden.

A turned staircase rises to the galleried first floor landing. There are four bedrooms (three doubles, one single) and a wet/shower room.

There is gas fired central heating and double glazing.

To the rear is the superb garden which extends to approximately 120ft in depth. There are large expanses of lawn and deep, established borders ensuring a high degree of privacy & seclusion.

To the side is a detached garage providing useful storage.

To the front the house is set well back from the quiet road with a good size garden that is well-screened by trees & hedging. A long driveway leads to the garage and provides off road parking for several vehicles.

In our opinion, this property offers various opportunities for significant extension/remodelling, if required. In particular, the house lends itself to a substantial rear and side extension (side would replace the garage) to create the modern, open plan living space that is currently very popular.

Externally, there is potential to remodel in either a traditional 'Sussex Style' or with a more contemporary look including render, cladding and slate roof tiles.

Any work would of course be subject to gaining all necessary consents.

Viewings will be arranged over two Open Days on Saturday 16th September & Saturday 23rd September 2017.

The Location...
Lucastes Road is one of the most prestigious residential roads in Haywards Heath lying within the 'Lucastes' conservation area of Haywards Heath, ideally located for the mainline train station with its fast and regular commuter services to London (approx 47 minutes to London Bridge/Victoria), Brighton (approx 20 minutes) and Gatwick International Airport.

Also within walking distance are Waitrose and Sainsbury's Superstores and the Dolphin Leisure Centre. The highly regarded Harlands Primary School is a short walk. For secondary education, children in the area usually attend the reputable Warden Park in Cuckfield, which can be accessed easily via Blunts Wood. The area is well represented in private education with schools such as Ardingly College, Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill School For Girls and Cumnor House. By car surrounding areas are approached via the A272 or A23(M), with the latter lying approximately five miles west at Warninglid/Bolney.

Homes with this level of potential are seldom available in Lucastes Road so viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
