DESCRIPTION Copping Hall is a delightful house that demonstrates how a listed building can be beautifully restored in a contemporary style to work perfectly as a busy family home. In the summer months you can open the doors from the double aspect sitting room to have breakfast and dinner on the terrace, whilst in the winter enjoy the wood burner that sits in the inglenook fireplace in the dining room.
Built in the early 1700's Copping Hall is thought to have housed a communal baker's oven for many years, servicing the local community. A theory amplified by the adjoining road - Puddingcake Lane. The former bread oven is now a feature of the kitchen with a useful four seater breakfast bar and shelving. This double aspect vaulted room overlooks the garden and has everything you would want from a modern kitchen, whilst combining character such as the exposed beams.
There is excellent preparation space along the wooden worktops equipped with all of the cooking facilities that you will need. There is a five ring Rangemaster as well as a double oven and built in microwave. Integrated full height fridge freezer and dishwasher, a designated utility area behind the breakfast bar - it is easy to see why this room is the hub of the home.
The flagstone flooring which runs in the kitchen and the dining room accentuates the charm of the building. Off the kitchen is an outer lobby which has a useful cloakroom and a great area for muddy boots. The ground floor area is completed by a door, which takes you down to the cellar.
A wide staircase leads to the first floor where you are greeted with a delightful view of Holy Cross Church, which can also be seen from the master bedroom and second bedroom.
The master bedroom benefits from plenty of built-in wardrobe space, whilst there is cast iron fireplace in bedroom two. Walking into the 12 x 13ft bathroom provides you with a feeling of luxury, with a freestanding roll top bath forming the centrepiece of the room. There is a shower cubicle with Aqualisa power shower attachment, heated towel rail, basin and WC.
Stairs rise to the second floor where two further double bedrooms are located, again providing excellent views towards the church. Bedroom three has a sink, whilst bedroom four provides eaves storage.
The rear garden is made up in part of a terrace which is accessed directly from the sitting room where there is space for a large garden table which captures the morning sun. The borders are well stocked with mature planting and there is a separate seating area to make the most of the late sun. The detached garage has a useful door at the rear leading to the garden and the pitched roof provides additional storage.
LOCATION Copping Hall is located on Church Street, just a few moments from the High Street and adjoins the beautifully named Puddingcake Lane. All of the town's local amenities can be found close by, from a range of independent shops to major brand supermarkets. At the southern end of the High Street is the train station, providing a commuter service to London in approximately one hour twenty. For those seeking a faster service, Haywards Heath station, forming part of the London to Brighton line, can be found 12 miles to the West. Uckfield has a large leisure centre, a historic picture house (celebrating 100 years in 2016) plenty of pubs and restaurants to eat in. Within striking distance is historic Lewes, whilst sought after nearby villages and hamlets include Nutley, Piltdown, Newick and Buxted. There are excellent local primary schools in both the town and the villages, as well as a secondary school within Uckfield itself. You have plenty of beautiful countryside on your doorstep, most notably with Ashdown Forest to the north and the South Downs National Park to the south. The A272 connects Uckfield with Haywards Heath and then the A/M23, whilst the A26 takes you north towards Royal Tunbridge Wells and south towards Lewes, the A27 and Brighton.
