Hops House is a stunning, double fronted Georgian property, believed to date from the 1830's, which has been sympathetically improved and extended over the years. This elegant, well-proportioned family home now offers flexible and versatile accommodation whilst retaining many period features, including; attractive fireplaces, ornate cornicing, wood panel doors and a curved bay window and French door in the drawing/dining room. At the heart of the home is the superb kitchen/breakfast/sitting room boasting a beautiful Westbury Orangery and bespoke Abri Furniture kitchen, with central island, stylish granite worktops and York flagstone flooring throughout, with underfloor heating to the orangery. The accommodation on the lower ground floor level could be put to a number of different uses as there is separate external access. On the first floor, the master bedroom is complimented by a luxurious contemporary styled en-suite bathroom with underfloor heating, roll top bath and a walk in rainfall shower. The adjoining bedroom is currently used as a dressing room. There are four further bedrooms, two of which are dual aspect. The property is approached via electric wrought iron gates to a gravel drive which, along with the garage, provides ample parking. The beautiful gardens were designed by award winning local gardener Alex Bell and areas of lawn are interspersed with glorious flower and shrub borders, whilst the attractive paved terrace offers the perfect location for outside entertaining. Completing the lifestyle is the tennis court, swimming pool (with solar cover, air source heat pump and oil fired boiler for all year use) and stable block; comprising 5 stables, 2 stores/tack rooms and tractor shed to compliment the paddock and woodland, with separate access from Stairbridge Lane. Note: the former sand school could be reinstated if required.

The property is situated in a rural yet convenient location with views over open countryside to the front and over its own gardens and grounds at the rear. The pretty village of Cuckfield, with its boutique style shops and cafes, is 3 miles away and the larger town of Haywards Heath a short distance further, offering a wider range of shops and amenities and mainline railway service to London Victoria (44 mins) and London Bridge, (42 mins).
