Full description

Pilgrims Wood is a substantial detached individual residence dating from 1952 built in an attractive style with mellow brick elevations under a tiled roof and imposingly situated in the centre of its plot that extends to about 0.7 acres. Overall the accommodation extends to about 3268 sq.ft. (303.6sq.m.) and provides spacious and generously proportioned rooms that permit a flexible layout and offers scope for further alteration and enlargement, subject to the usual consents. The house is set back from the road and approached over a gravelled driveway and turning area with the front entrance door opening into a large 'T' shaped reception hall off which the principal rooms radiate. The living room runs from front to back and is of generous proportions and with a lovely triple aspect to the front, side and rear with direct access to the gardens. The separate dining room provides ample space for a large table and chairs and has a sunny double aspect over the front gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is the real hub of the house and is well fitted with a comprehensive range of units and integrated appliances. It also enjoys a lovely aspect over the gardens and towards open countryside on the outskirts of the town. Off the kitchen is a large walk in pantry and a separate utility room with access to the outside of the house. Elsewhere on the ground floor are two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, a study, a family bathroom and a separate shower room. Off the entrance hall, stairs lead off to the first floor and also to an unexpected feature - a really useful basement area where there is a workroom and also a laundry room with the central heating boiler and hot water system. On the first floor, the accommodation continues to be generously proportioned with three double bedrooms having a Southerly aspect to the front with lovely views towards the Ashdown Forest. There is also a large shower room, a separate cloakroom and a useful walk in store room. Two of the bedrooms offer scope for further enlargement by incorporating the roof spaces adjoining, subject to the usual consents being obtained. Outside, the property really comes into its own with a large plot of about 0.7 acres that provides a lovely setting with a sunny aspect and outlook towards open countryside. The gardens are a gardener's dream as they are well stocked, attractively laid out and surround the house on all sides. In addition to ample parking to the front and side, there is also a detached garage to the rear with a greenhouse and timber sheds. EPC Band D.

Agents Notes

Properties like Pilgrims Wood in such a prestigious and convenient location rarely come on the market, and early viewing is advised by the sole agents to appreciate why the vendors have had many happy years at the property and have reluctantly decided to sell only due to change in lifestyle and a planned move out of the area.
