5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Heathfield, East Sussex

5 5

An impressive and expansive five double bedroom modern detached family house set in a quiet lane on the outskirts of Cross In Hand. Offering over 4000 sq.ft of accommodation and a private and secluded plot of two thirds of an acre this house offers every modern convenience juxtaposed with charm and character.

We are pleased to offer this exceptional modern home 'Cranemoor' to the open market. So rarely does a property having undergone complete refurbishment over the past ten years feel this perfect. The attention to detail throughout is impressive and that coupled with its quiet location, sheer size and extremely well thought through layout is why anyone would be lucky to call this house their home.

Set on the outskirts of the popular and convenient village of Cross-In-Hand within walking distance of the local bakery, village pub, convenience store and country club. This home lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with the thriving market town of Heathfield only a five minute drive away ensures a peaceful rural environment but in a non isolated position.

Lived in by the current owners for the past ten years no stone has been left unturned in the transformation in the early 90's built Sussex Residence. The whole house exudes quality and charm from the luxurious bespoke kitchen and 'Lefroy Brooks' Bathroom Suites to the inglenook fireplace and beamed vaulted ceilings.

As you leave behind the well connected A267 and wend your way along the tree lined 'Back Lane' after a short while you arrive at 'Cranemoor' on your right. New electric wooden gates open out on to a driveway with more than enough space for five or six cars. Whilst there is an integrated double garage with electric up and over doors you will also fine a recently constructed detached barn style garage with space for a hoist for use perhaps by car enthusiasts.

As you face the property you are immediately struck by its unique facade, you would be forgiven for thinking this house is much older and the 'eyebrow' roof line above the garage is particularly unusual. Entering through the solid oak studded front door there is a small porchway which has been added recently, this opens nicely into the reception hall which sets the scene for things to come. One thing the current owners were keen to ensure was an open plan feel throughout the house. Non structural walls have been knocked down to create the reception hall which is a light and bright space currently occupied in part by a grand piano.
To the left double doors open into the drawing room; this triple aspect space has high ceilings and stained oak beams, a lovely inglenook fireplace and double doors leading straight out onto the rear terrace in addition to double doors which open through into the formal dining room. The dining room connects with the kitchen and the garden by two further sets of double doors and can comfortably accomodate a large dining table in which to entertain family and friends on those special occasions. You continue through into the kitchen which truly is the heart of the home. with a wide range of wall and base units this bespoke kitchen features granite worktops, a breakfast bar, an Aga with companion electric double oven and gas hobs. The stylish kitchen has a few hidden extras including a wine fridge and cooler, a water filter and a macerator. The kitchen has been extended to include a further dining/breakfast space; this boasts a vaulted ceiling and further character beams. In the warmer months the doors can be opened onto the veranda which is a perfect breakfast spot with views over the rear garden. Back through the kitchen but with a degree of separation you will find a good utility space with further amenities, an airing cupboard and an extra side door providing further access into a charming courtyard, leading onto the garden. Completing a circle doors then lead back through into the reception hall and passing by the downstairs cloakroom a further door leads into the double garage. It is here you will find the Grant combi boiler plus the water tank for the sprinkler system. Some of the units from the old kitchen have also been recycled to create useful work surfaces and cupboards. There is another side door and also worth mentioning is the gardeners lavatory which can be accessed from the side return.

An attractive dog leg staircase rises to the first floor and opens out onto the most wonderful landing. As with the reception hall walls have been removed to create an amazing office/library/lounge space the likes of which we have never seen. Due to the loft extension and the additional bedrooms created the current owners have transformed this landing into a really useful and useable room. Above the drawing and dining rooms is the master suite with a juliette balcony overlooking the rear garden. There is an array of built in wardrobes on either side of the chimney breast and additionally a lovely walk in dressing room but the real feature is the his and hers en-suites. Yes, two en-suites! One situated at the front of the house with a bath and separate shower cubicle, heated mirrors, wash hand basin and wc. The other through the dressing room which has a large walk in shower wash hand basin and wc. Completing the first floor are two further bedrooms currently used for guests on the other side of the library. One has windows overlooking the front garden and the other overlooks the rear; both benefit from en-suites (a bath and a shower) plus an array of built in wardrobes.

Lastly a second staircase rises to the top floor which boasts two further double bedrooms and an extra home office. Velux windows ensure a great transfer of light which couples nicely with the vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Whilst one of the bedrooms has a private en-suite bathroom there is also a 'jack and jill' shower room which is nestled between the other bedroom and the office.

Externally i have already mentioned the plot being a great size of two thirds of an acre which includes a fantastic long rear garden. This well manicured garden gently slopes down away from the house and is predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with flower beds and shrub borders. At the bottom of the garden there is a lightly wooded area with an ornamental pond and a summer house. All of this and more can be viewed from the raised terrace with pergola which can be accessed directly from the breakfast, dining and drawing rooms. In addition to the barn style garage there is a further barn style outbuilding with a log store and also a greenhouse; all of which is protected by external CCTV.

Nearby the thriving market town of Heathfield has a wide range of shopping facilities and supermarkets including a Sainburys and Waitrose. There is an array of both public and private schooling for all ages in the area. To the north is the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells which offers an extensive range of shopping, leisure and grammar schools, whilst to the south the larger coastal towns of Brighton and Eastbourne can be found.
