Royal Oak Lane, High Hurstwood, Uckfield
Secluded but not isolated, this recently completed converted granary offers period charm juxtaposed with a crisp modern finish. Set in a plot of just under an acre, surrounded by arable land offering spectacular far reaching views, this home offers four bedrooms and four bathrooms plus further potential.
A unique opportunity has arisen to acquire this recently converted granary set on the outskirts of High Hurstwood offering spectacular countryside views in a peaceful and private location.
As you come into the village and turn into Royal Oak Lane, passing the Hurstwood Pub and Village Green, you wend your way along the country lane passing by various cottages until you reach the driveway for Sun Harbour. Gates lead you into the 'in and out' driveway with plenty of parking options in addition to the garaging (which has planning permission for office/annexe above); the house itself is impressive but its the great expanse of farmland beyond which captures the imagination.
The Old Granary now benefits from a recently built barn style extension creating a proper family home with the sociable open plan living space in addition to the four bedrooms and four bathrooms above. Stepping through the front door it becomes clear that the reception hall is what connects the old with the new. The vaulted ceilings and big windows with the light timber beams draw the light in and the exposed brickwork wall to your right sets the scene for things to come.
To the left passing by the downstairs loo a great sliding door opens out into the heart of this home. Measuring well over sixty square metres the open plan kitchen/living/dining space is just what you were looking for. A space to enjoy precious time with your friends and family throughout the year; the bi-fold doors wide open to the garden in the summer and the multi fuel log burner with pretty stone hearth roaring in the winter. The kitchen is set back from the living space with a large island and benefits from built in appliances including a steam and electric cooker, 'Neff' induction hob, an instant boiling water tap plus a fridge and dishwasher. Sectioned off from the living space is an ever useful utility/boot room which connects well with the garden and offers an additional sink and space for a large fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The majority of the ground floor benefits from underfloor heating, a wet system which is fuelled by the air source heat pump- as there is no oil or gas. A speaker system has also been built into the property. From the entrance hallway a few steps lead up into the granary section of the property within which two rooms can be found, a quiet lounge and a large office/study. The lounge is carpeted and again benefits from bi-fold doors to the garden, a log burner and a stunning original beam across the ceiling.
The first floor briefly comprises of four bedrooms and four bathrooms (three of which are en-suites and all benefit from underfloor heating). All four can accommodate double beds and the three largest rooms all have their own en-suite shower rooms and views to the rear over the fields. There is a wonderful little balcony which opens out from the landing and the two 'granary' bedrooms also offer juliette balconies.
Externally the gardens wrap around the property nicely with a lovely rear terrace leading from the living areas and connecting to the lawn beyond. Post & rail fences mark the boundary and there are areas of mature shrubs and trees. To the side there is plenty of open lawn for the children to enjoy and to the front there are two garages which are ideal for storage but could equally offer further potential for a home business or an annexe with planning permission already in place.
Locally the nearby town of Uckfield & Crowborough offer all the amenities needed on a daily basis whilst the larger towns of Tunbridge wells, Haywards Heath & Lewes are within easy reach. There is a regular rail service to London from Buxted train station which is a short drive away plus a great selection of private and state schools nearby. High Hurstwood itself is a small village with a great community, village pub, primary school and post office. It is just on the edge of the Ashdown Forest which also offers a wide range of leisure pursuits to suit all ages.
