The living room/dining room enjoys a lovely aspect to the front and also a sunny Southerly aspect to the rear and off this is a well appointed kitchen/breakfast room with modern units. Across the rear of the property is a spacious sun room, not in the first flush of youth but a useful space nonetheless, whilst there are also two double bedrooms and a bathroom with white suite. An oil fired central heating system is installed and the windows are double glazed. Outside, there is a detached single garage with access to the front and rear with ample parking on the driveway. The gardens are a good size mainly laid to lawn with fruit trees and a large shed. Access is possible from the unmade lane to the rear which runs off Top Road, the main road through the village. A paved terrace runs across the front of the property which takes full advantage of the views and also the late afternoon sunshine. Offered for sale with no onward chain, early viewing is recommended. EPC Band E.

Sharpthorne lies about four miles to the South of East Grinstead and is within reach of other local centres such as Forest Row, Haywards Heath and Crawley. The village has a local shop and East Grinstead offers a wide range of shopping facilities and from here there are regular train services to London Victoria and London Bridge. The M23 at Copthorne is also a short drive and so the M25 and Gatwick Airport are also easily accessible and Three Bridges station at Crawley also offers mainline train services to London and the Coast.
