A stunning Grade II* listed Sussex country house with beautiful and well-stocked gardens and versatile outbuildings

1 Coppards Bridge is a handsome 15th-century timber-framed brick, beamed and tile-hung property. The charming home enjoys a wide range of celebrated period features including heavy timber beams, thick latched wooden doors, exposed brickwork and feature fireplaces.

The airy front reception hall opens into two reception rooms, including the dual-aspect sitting room with wood panelling and wide inglenook fireplace with bressummer beam, the formal dining room with another impressive inglenook, and an adjacent family room also with a feature fireplace and log-burning stove. From here is a vaulted study with integrated store cupboard and cellar hatch flowing into the full height vaulted feature hall with its cloakroom and stairways to the first floor. A dual-aspect sun room has french doors and peaceful garden views.

Completing the ground floor is an double aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a range of bespoke fitted cabinetry and quartz worksurfaces, a butler sink, range and a pantry.

Three separate stairways rise to the welcoming first floor which houses a traditional Victorian-style bathroom with karndean flooring and a rolltop bath, along with a shower room, fitted dressing room and four unique and elegant bedrooms with a wealth of period features. There is a large boarded attic space.


The property sits in an enviable elevated position and is approached via a gated gravelled driveway to the rear, giving access to one of two garages, a shed and a workshop. The beautiful surrounding garden features a charming white picket fence and comprises several extensive lush divided lawns, with a bridge over a pond leading to the home, a wide selection of fruit trees, roses and well-planned herbaceous flowerbeds, along with a small bluebell wood and stocked shrubbery. There is also a range of sunny paved terraces, a bright summer house, sheds and log store.


Scenic North Chailey provides a range of amenities including a popular public house, primary school, garage, Post Office, sports clubs and a village store. Nearby Newick offers further facilities including a medical practice and several eateries. Further are Haywards Heath and historic Lewes, beside the South Downs National Park, both with railway stations providing regular London links.
