. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a character four bedroom, two reception room detached family home situated in a superb semi rural location on the southern outskirts of Uckfield in a stunning plot of approximately 2 acres (to be confirmed) backing directly onto fields beyond. The property is easily accessible to the towns of Uckfield and Lewes with Uckfield just under a couple of miles away offering comprehensive range of shopping facilities, schooling for children of all ages and train station offering a commuter service to London Bridge. The county town of Lewes also provides an excellent selection of shops, local markets and schooling and has a mainline station with good commuter services to London. Also readily accessible are the coastal towns of Eastbourne and Brighton whilst the Royal Spa town of Tunbridge Wells, Gatwick airport and the M23 and M25 motorways are all within convenient driving distance.

. Oakleigh Cottage is understood to date back to the early 1900's with later additions and, in our opinion, offers huge potential to extend further to provide additional bedroom and living room accommodation subject to the usual planning applications and consents. Features include a master bedroom of 17'9 x 12'2 enjoying a double aspect with wonderful views over the gardens to countryside in the distance, main sitting room with maximum measurements 19'11 x 16'8 incorporating feature open fireplace and kitchen/breakfast room of 15'9 x 8'9 with built in oven, hob and fridge. Further features include sealed unit double glazed windows throughout, oil fired central heating, and original integral double garage of 20'7 x 17'7 with utility room facilities which could easily be converted into further living accommodation subject to necessary consents.

. A particular feature of the property are the stunning gardens and grounds of approximately two acres which incorporate gently rolling lawns, a wide variety of mature shrubs, trees, plants and bushes and offering almost total privacy and seclusion. A recent garage block addition has been constructed with internal maximum measurements of just under 30' x 22'10 and this incorporates a large home office/hobbies room of 20'10 x 11'5 above, and in our opinion, could easily be converted into annex facilities if required and subject to the usual planning applications and consents. There are extensive parking areas for numerous vehicles and the property is enclosed by post and rail or fencing throughout. Properties such as Oakleigh Cottage rarely come to the market and with its undoubted ongoing potential an internal view is considered absolutely essential.
