6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Blackboys, Uckfield

6 4

A substantial six bedroom detached executive home designed in part by the current owners when it was built in 2010. Set behind gates in the desirable village of Blackboys, this large plot is private and secluded. The nearby stations of Buxted & Uckfield offer mainline rail services into London.

We are pleased to offer to the market 'The Flower House'. Set in a plot surrounded by mature trees and hedging creating complete peace, privacy and seclusion sits this fantastic example of a detached executive home.

Lived in by the current owners since 2010 this property exudes class and quality, offering everything from marble bathrooms to bespoke oak joinery; and for the tech minded - underfloor heating on both levels to a hard-wired multi room sound system. The attention to detail is ever present in all 4400+ sq ft. of accommodation; significant enhancements have been made since purchased by the current owners.

As you turn off Lewes Road at the sign for 'The Flower House' you are faced with a long and private tarmacked driveway leading up to the electronically operated gates which open into the paved parking area in front of the house. The flower beds at the front are well stocked and soften the boundary lines of the property. Whilst the owners often gain access to the house via the integrated triple garage (electric up and over doors assisting in the wetter months), guests arrive through the front door into the large and welcoming entrance hallway.

The vastness of the entrance gives a taste of what is to come, and the beautiful oak staircase leading up to the first floor dominates the space. To the right double doors open into the triple aspect lounge which runs the full depth of the property and benefits from sliding doors offering direct access to the rear terrace and lawn beyond. Ahead is the formal dining room which comfortably sits eight and extends out slightly into the garden which can also be accessed via French Doors. This configuration coupled with the stone terrace helps to maximise the social environment especially in the summer months.

Along from the dining room you will find a further reception area which is currently being utilised as a cinema room; but depending on your needs could be a child's playroom or snug. Before reaching the heart of the home, across the hallway lies the study/office and downstairs cloakroom.

The moment you step into kitchen/family room it is easy to see why most of your time would be spent here; over 950 sq ft. of space has been dedicated to the most important room of the house. It is not just a kitchen, but dining and lounge all rolled into one! The vaulted ceiling and impressive 18-paned window enhance an extremely light, bright and open space and helps to connect you with the garden oustide. Features include the central island; Top of the range Siemens appliances such as three ovens (including microwave and steam oven), two dishwashers and an induction hob; Amana American style fridge/freezer and a coffee machine.

I have already alluded to the triple garage which is connected to the kitchen via the utility room with an additional sink plus the Siemens washing machine and tumble dryer.
Occupying the space above the garaging and utilities is the enormous guest suite suitable for visiting relatives, friends or perhaps a live in au pair. Accessed via a separate staircase from the kitchen/family room the suite is complemented by its own private shower room plus two sets of bespoke oak double wardrobes.

Traversing the main staircase in the entrance hallway leads you to the first floor landing off which four/five double bedrooms can be found. The master suite with its Juliette balcony is the largest and benefits from access to a luxurious en-suite shower room with his and hers sinks. A plethora of bespoke oak wardrobes can be found both in the main bedroom and the dressing room; it is worth noting that the dressing room still has access to the landing and therefore could be utilised as an additional bedroom or nursery.
To the front of the property there are two further double bedrooms which share use of the family bathroom complete with bath and separate shower cubicle. Lastly at the rear is the final double bedroom which boasts its own en-suite shower room and has lovely views over the lawned garden.

Externally the garden can be reached from almost all the living areas as well as from both sides of the house. A paved stone terrace wraps around the rear of the house offering plenty of seating areas in which to relax and unwind. As previously mentioned the plot is surrounded by mature trees and so offers complete privacy in which to enjoy the nature of the Sussex Countryside.

The Flower House lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the village of Blackboys with the popular 14th Century Blackboys Inn, village shops/café, an 'Officially Outstanding Ofsted' C of E primary school and pre-school. The picturesque village of Waldron with its public house is about 2 miles. Uckfield provides an extensive range of restaurants, public houses, shops and recreational facilities, together with Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets and also an independent cinema.
There is also a good selection of both private and state schools in the area. Uckfield has a mainline train service to London (London Bridge in about 1 hour 15 mins). The county town of Lewes lies approximately 10 miles to the south west and provides a range of individual shops, restaurants and regular food markets. The regional centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells, about 15 miles to the north/east, has a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. The nearby South Downs National Park and Ashdown Forest, together with the coast at The Seven Sisters Country Park provide wonderful opportunities for walking and recreation.
