Full description

This extremely generously proportioned and wonderfully extended four double bedroom executive detached family residence, traditionally constructed of brick beneath a tiled roof, is believed to have originally been built in the 1960's and continually improved ever since. This beautifully presented home is idyllically situated just off the ever popular residential thoroughfare of Mill Road, near to the junction of Leylands Road, whilst occupying an enviable position as the first home to the right as you enter the quiet and secluded cul-de-sac of Millbank.

This individually appointed dwelling, which is a mere 0.3 miles from Wivelsfield Station, is also ideally positioned to take advantage of Burgess Hill Station and all the further amenities provided by the main town centre, which offers a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, being located just over half a mile distant. The educational centre of Sheddingdean Community Primary School is situated very conveniently only a moment's walk around the corner. A parade of useful convenience shops, including a 'Co-operative Food' store, are positioned on the nearby Maple Drive. Bedelands Farm Local Nature Reserve, which is particularly popular with walkers, dog owners and fishermen, is admitted from a footpath from the northern section of Freeks Lane and consists of 80 acres of ancient meadows, woodland, hedgerows and ponds.

Having been extended to the rear previously by means of a conservatory and also benefiting from a conversion to the integral garage to provide a home office and a utility boot room, the current incumbents have also imaginatively reconfigured the property to maximise the reception areas downstairs and to cultivate an ingenious flow of the space. The primary enhancements were undertaken in approximately 2007 with an extension to the front right hand side of the property, which is cleverly framed by a large triangle feature window to flood further natural light into the kitchen. The under stairs cloakroom was also refurbished in 2009.

This warm and inviting family home, which boasts over 1,800 square feet of spacious and versatile accommodation split over two storeys, benefits from gas fired central heating to modern radiators, some of which have ornate covers, in addition to replacement double glazing throughout. The arrangement is completed in neutral decor with smooth ceilings throughout, whilst painted wooden doors service every room on the ground floor and original wooden doors do likewise on the first floor. Tiled flooring is present in the entrance porch, the utility boot room, the kitchen breakfast room, the rear lobby and the conservatory sun lounge, as well as both the family bathroom and the en suite shower room upstairs. Engineered oak flooring has been laid in the home office, the entrance vestibule, the cloakroom and the open plan lounge and dining areas, with wool carpeting on the staircase, the first floor landing and all four bedrooms. Furthermore, a useful wall mounted air conditioning unit is situated in the master bedroom.

To the front of the property, there is a hard standing brick laid driveway which provides off road parking availability for multiple vehicles, whilst access to the rear is admitted through a wooden gate at the left hand side of the property. The south facing rear garden, which is perfect for 'al fresco' dining almost all year round, is tiered to include a patio area abutting the immediate rear of the property, an expanse of lawn, a feature ornamental fish pond, in addition to a further patio area at the rear where a large timber framed summer house is located.

The ground floor of the property opens into the large entrance porch, with doors to the home office and the main entrance vestibule. The home office contains a further door to the utility boot room which incorporates two work surfaces, one of which has space for a sink, a washing machine and a tumble dryer, and is where the wall mounted gravity fed boiler system is positioned. A useful under stairs cloakroom, below the staircase that rises to the first floor landing, is located in the entrance vestibule with further doors to the rest of the ground floor accommodation. The masterful kitchen breakfast room has a large granite island dining area with further white soft close cupboards, drawers and pull-out larder units strategically arranged to further accommodate an American style fridge freezer, a dish washer, a one-and-a-half bowl sink with drainer, in addition to a 'Rangemaster' cooker. Just off the kitchen is a rear lobby with an access door to the rear, whilst casement doors lead to the dining area which is currently arranged as a library. Completing the arrangement on the ground floor is a large 'L' shaped drawing room with an eye-catching central fireplace with marble surround and hearth, alongside a full width sun lounge conservatory which is jointly accessible via the drawing room and the dining room.

The first floor landing enjoys the natural light provided by a feature stain glass window placed high above overlooking the front of the property and is where the airing cupboard and access to the loft space are both located. The loft storage area is permitted via a pull down ladder from the access hatch and is partly boarded, fully insulated and provides reasonable scope to be extended, subject to the necessary planning consents. Three double bedrooms supplement the master room which includes a fitted triple wardrobe, an alcove dressing area with a fitted vanity mirror, as well as a modern en suite shower room. The family bathroom, which contains a spa bath and separate corner style power shower with jet and steam features, completes the overall accommodation.
