Why you’ll like it: 

With its leafy location and peaceful garden, this beautiful home balances a gentler pace of village life with easy access to London, the airports or the coastal city of Brighton. Hassocks is just a walk away with a train station serving London and has a bustling centre with shops, cafes and schools as well as a golf and tennis club, and a real bonus of this house is that it is just minutes from Hurstpierpoint and Ditchling as well, popular Wealden villages each with equally great choices of facilities to choose from. Closer to home, this expert development by the award winning Barratt Homes includes plenty of green spaces including a central playground for little ones and a more sophisticated area for the teens on the edge of open countryside, both within a stroll from this house.

On the perimeter of the Clayton Mills site, this house is more private than most as it is angled so that it is not really overlooked and its large west facing garden is therefore open to the south as well as backing onto the countryside reached via a broad path nearby. With Sussex hung tiles, gabled roof line and integral garage this smart home has plenty of appeal and inside does not disappoint with an inviting hallway which has a refreshingly practical tiled floor. To your left, past a guest cloakroom, the tiles stylishly continue into the fabulous kitchen/diner, both bright and sociable, with windows in two walls and central French doors opening up to bring the garden in. The kitchen is discreetly separated from the dining area by a central island which doubles as a breakfast bar where the children can sit with their homework as you bake the incentive to finish. Gleaming contemporary units are topped by family friendly work surfaces and all of the appliances are integrated, so all you have to do is open the doors to the sunshine and add friends. Across the hallway light streams through the large windows in three walls of an elegant living room which is simply but stylishly decorated and there is a huge under stair cupboard tucked away.

At the top of the stairs, the master bedroom looks over open countryside and has a whole wall of wardrobes and a chic en suite shower room. Next door, the guest suite also has a shower room and open views, the second window in the south wall looking out as far as to the famous Jack and Jill windmills of Clayton Hill. Central to this floor is a sensible family bathroom with a shower attachment on the bath already and at the far end of the landing, two more peaceful double rooms are light and airy and are both a generous size, so there shouldn’t be a “lively discussion” about allocation.

Bear in mind:

The picturesque villages of Hassocks, Hurstpierpoint and Ditchling have characterful shops, innumerable bars and restaurants and lively, artistic communities. The sea and the city of Brighton is within easy reach and the local schools are popular. 

Owner’s secret:

“We love the open space both within the house and in the development itself which is ideal for children; we have playgrounds or countryside walks and there are lots of other activities nearby for them including riding, Karting, quad biking and tennis.”

Where it is:

Shops: Local shops about a 10 minute walk, Brighton 15 minute drive

Train Station: Hassocks 10-15 minute walk

Seafront or Park: Park 1 minute, beach is about a 30 minute drive

Closest Schools:

Primary: Hassocks Infant, The Windmills Junior

Secondary: Downlands Community College

Private: Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill, Brighton College

Just minutes from the village high street with its shops, cafes and bistro pubs, this rare find offers plenty of local entertainment with access to the Downs close by. The bustling villages of Hurstpierpoint and Ditchling are also near, as are popular schools, sports centres, golf, cricket and tennis clubs. The station, with its excellent links to Gatwick and London is an easy walk and the A23 is just a short drive away, making this exceptional home a real possibility for those needing to reach further afield.
