DESCRIPTION Located on the top floor at this country mansion, Park View is a stunning penthouse apartment that offers a buyer not just space, light and views, but a way of life, away from the everyday hustle and bustle we are accustomed to. Brook House dates back to the 1850's and was originally used as a weekend hunting lodge owned by the Stephenson Clarke family who were instrumentally responsible for Borde Hill gardens and Wakehurst Place, with the gardens of Brook House directly benefiting from the same seed bank. Throughout the gardens, every turn is met with different specimens of plants and trees from throughout the world. The gardens are maintained for the residents, giving you the perfect balance of outdoor space to explore and enjoy, without the demands of looking after it yourself. There is of course a tea lawn and it even houses its own cricket pitch and pavilion, with the wicket believed to be transported directly from Trent Bridge and apparently and the first Australian touring cricket team played here too. It is hard to imagine many apartments in Sussex where you can walk out of your front door, into your back garden, take tea on the lawn and hear the sound of willow striking a ball rippled with polite applause.
Brook House was converted in the 1970's into several substantial wings and apartments with Park View being the jewel of the home. A 42 foot entrance hall with ceilings over 9 feet high instantly provides you with a feel for the apartment. There is an excellent mix of Victorian features with a fresh modern look that will appeal to many a buyer. The hub of the home is the excellent double aspect kitchen/diner. There is plenty of prep space, a ceramic hob with double oven and extractor. The island provides good storage and there is ample space for a dining table and two sets of french doors that lead you to the roof terrace. Next door to the kitchen/breakfast room is the sitting room, which also enjoys a double aspect and has a Victorian fireplace. All of the bedrooms overlook the majority of the grounds in a favoured Westerly aspect. Bedrooms one, two and three all have en-suites. There are bathrooms to the suites in bedrooms one and three whilst bedroom two has a wet room. Importantly for any apartment, the storage available is excellent. There is a large cupboard off the entrance hall and the apartment also benefits from the loft space above.
Through the oak door on the ground floor of the main house, there is the Great Hall which is available to residents and is often used for parties, gatherings and festive events. There is ample unrestricted parking for all residents at the front on the sweeping drive with Brook House set approximately 300 metres away from Hammingden Lane.
LOCATION Brook House is perfectly tucked away off Hammingden Lane and for those seeking rural living there is plenty to choose from. The Bluebell Railway is within 3 miles whilst the picturesque village of Horsted Keynes is even closer where The Green Man is a great place to have a pint in front of the roaring fire. Our favourite bakers can be found a short drive to Ardingly - their apple and cinnamon croissants are out of this world, whilst the food at The Gardeners Arms is excellent. As you head into Lindfield, there is an array of independent shops, restaurants and bars to choose from and a thriving community. The train station at Haywards Heath provides an excellent service to both Brighton and London whilst a short drive takes you to the A/M23. If you need schools near Brook House, there is a choice of West Hoathly C Of E, St Peters C Of E at Ardingly and Lindfield Primary and Blackthorns Primary in Lindfield.
