A beautifully presented, 3 bedroom, extended, barn conversion set in a 1 acre plot, in a convenient semi-rural location.
Believed to date in part from the 17th century, Pondlye Barn is a beautifully presented barn conversion, which has been imaginatively extended by the current owners. A glazed reception hall, with oak flooring and beams and underfloor heating, links the new extension to the original barn. At the heart of the home is the dual aspect kitchen/breakfast/family room, boasting a bespoke fitted kitchen with central island and breakfast bar, integrated appliances, Rayburn, quartz worktops, slate flooring and exposed beams.
The dual aspect sitting room has stylish slate flooring and a log burning stove; a ladder provides access to the mezzanine study area. A turned staircase provides access to the triple aspect master bedroom, with oak flooring, vaulted ceiling and en suite bathroom with roll top bath. The ground floor extension has 2 further double bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, underfloor heating and double doors giving access to the garden; with one having exposed brickwork.
This property has 1 acres of land.
The property is approached via a shingle drive, which provides ample parking. The gardens and grounds surround the property on three sides, with the more formal garden area being mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with flower and shrub borders. At the rear of the property is a paved terrace with raised flower beds; perfect for outside entertaining. Two further garden areas provide an enclosed vegetable garden with heated greenhouse; an orchard with quince, pear, apple, plum and cherry trees; a tractor shed and garden store.
Agents Note: Additional paddock of about 0.86 acres, with stable block, may be available by separate negotiation. Planning Permission granted for a double, open car barn with room above. Ref: DM/15/2767 expires Aug 2018. Prospective purchasers are advised that they must make their own enquiries of Mid Sussex District Council.
Pondlye Barn is located in a convenient semi-rural location on the outskirts of the pretty village of Ansty, with Cuckfield immediately to the north. Haywards Heath, Hurstpierpoint, Horsham and Brighton are all within 13 miles and offer a wider range of shopping facilities, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and cultural pursuits.
The mainline train station at Haywards Heath provides direct services to London (about 47 minutes) and the A23 is less than a 5 minutes drive from the property providing access to the coast, Gatwick, the M23/M25 and London.
There are a number of excellent schools in the area including Handcross Park Preparatory School, Cottesmore, Brighton College, Hurstpierpoint College, Ardingly College and Burgess Hill School for Girls.
From Horsham head south on the A281/Brighton Road to Cowfold, taking the 1st exit at both mini roundabouts onto the A272/Cowfold Road. At the next roundabout, continue straight over onto Bolney Road/A272 heading towards Ansty village. Take the 3rd exit at the next roundabout onto the B2036 and, after a short distance, take the right hand fork down the hill onto Cuckfield Road. The driveway to the property will be found on the right hand side after about 1 mile.
