Property Description

Full description

An outstanding Tudor style character property built in 1929 situated on the highest point of the ridge between Hurstpierpoint and Hassocks and enjoying fine southerly views of woodland. The accommodation is arranged on two floors with the majority of the rooms facing due south. A self-contained annexe on the first floor has its own entrance door and stairs, however this could be incorporated into the main house providing six bedroom accommodation. The property was updated a few years ago, but does present an ideal opportunity for a buyer to place their own vision into such a prestige property.

The centre of Hassocks is within one mile which provides a variety of facilities, including shops, a bank, a building society, a sub-post office (within McColls Convenience Store), Sainsbury's Local, a modern health centre, schools for all age groups and a main line railway station which provides regular services to London and the south coast (subject to network time tables).
