4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Little London Road, Horam

4 3

A wonderful opportunity to acquire a substantial 1930's detached family residence offering four bedrooms, three bathrooms and an array of reception areas. Externally there are four acres completely surrounded by ancient woodland and including two paddocks and a well stocked fishing lake.

We are pleased to offer to the market 'Hollinwood': Rarely does a family home that offers quite this much come available to the market in such a sought after location.
Situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Horam sits this wonderful four bedroom 1930's residence with four acres of gardens and grounds surrounded by ancient woodland.

As you turn off Little London Road and approach the house you are immediately struck by the privacy this house offers. The paddocks stretch out ahead of you while the driveway bends to the left and leads to the house which is nicely set back from the street and completely screened from view by tall trees. There are a variety of parking areas offering ample space for the whole family's vehicles in addition to the attached double garage which can be reached just beyond the house itself. A lovely pond and water feature is situated at the front of the house and the sound of running water as you exit your vehicle is a welcoming sound after a hard day at work.

Upon entering the house through the original front door you are immediately greeted by a large entrance hallway typical of this period. Parquet flooring extends through the hall before the dog-leg staircase rises ahead to the first floor. To your right you will find the primary living room; a fantastic sized triple aspect room benefitting from french doors leading out onto the rear garden and a lovely open fireplace with stone hearth for those colder months. Back into the hallway and beyond the staircase to the right is the home office/study which is well proportioned and with views over the garden to the rear offers the peace you would need to conduct your business. Continuing around, the next door leads through into the kitchen/breakfast room; extended by owners previously and then having a bespoke kitchen built with a range of wall and base units, two Aga's (one oil, one electric) and granite worktops, this kitchen is in a classic country style with nice features including historic beams and bred brick chimney breasts. Additional features of the kitchen are its cool pantry and access through into the sizeable utility/boot room. Double doors lead out onto the conservatory which edges out into the garden helping transfer a great amount of light through into the kitchen; large enough for use as a dining room and benefitting from heating to ensure comfortable use throughout the seasons. Completing the ground floor is the shower room with wash hand basin and wc, and the formal dining room at the front of the property with its large bay window and feature fireplace; due to the conservatory's use as a dining area this room has been utilised by the current owners as a snug/playroom for the children.

To the first floor you will find four good sized bedrooms, three doubles and one single. The master bedroom complete with dressing area and en-suite occupies the space over the primary lounge and therefore benefits from windows overlooking the front and rear gardens. The other two double bedrooms both benefit from built in wardrobes, one overlooking the rear and the other with a large bay window overlooking the front. The family bathroom occupies the space between the second and fourth bedrooms and is a complete suite with a shower over the bath. If more bedrooms/bathrooms are required then it is more than feasible to assume that permission for an extension would be granted over the double garage and utility room.

Externally the rear garden is a delight; everywhere you look all you can see is the green of the leaves on the trees. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of flowers and shrubs with mature hedge borders and even a productive orchard. There are a variety of outbuildings including a summer house all with electricity and even an old 'Anderson' air raid shelter which is ideal for use as a wine cellar. The whole plot is surrounded by ancient woodland and as you step beyond the formal garden a path wends its way down further into this woodland before surprisingly opening out into the most wonderful natural lake which at its deepest is 7ft. The current owners have spent considerable sums ensuring the lake is well stocked with fish and with a path running all around it is a perfect place to while away the day with friends fishing! Finally we come to the two paddocks which have been well fenced off; if you are looking for a home which can accommodate horses, pony's or alpacas then look no further. Alternatively subject to planning permission the nature of the paddocks and their ease of access to the road lends itself to potential future development.

The property is situated in a convenient semi-rural location, set back from the road on the outskirts of the village of Horam where there are local shops and amenities. Running through the village is the Cuckoo Trail, a 12 mile former railway line between Polegate and Heathfield, providing a safe route for cyclists, walkers and horse riders. In both Heathfield and Uckfield, about 3 miles and 6½ miles away respectively there are good ranges of shops and supermarkets including a Waitrose. For more comprehensive shopping facilities further afield are Tunbridge Wells, Eastbourne and Brighton. There is a choice of schools in the area, both private and state. The nearest mainline stations are Stonegate (Charing Cross, Cannon Street and London Bridge in just over 1 hour); Buxted (London Victoria in about 75 minutes); Polegate (10 miles to the south) on the mainline from Eastbourne to Gatwick Airport and Victoria, with two trains an hour.
