3 bedroom semi-detached house for saleMill Lane, Balcombe
Sold STC £375,000
Full descriptionFIRST TIME ON THE MARKET SINCE 1957 - A delightful Victorian semi-detached home that, although requiring modernisation, occupies a lovely spot on an country lane close to the village centre.
The House... - An attractive Victorian semi-detached home situated in a delightful elevated position on a picturesque country lane, close to the heart of Balcombe and offered to the market for the first time since 1957. Although requiring modernisation, High Croft offers well proportioned accommodation typical of a period home and the ground floor comprises-: entrance hall, sitting room with bay window & fireplace, dining room, kitchen with walk-in larder/utility cupboard, cloakroom and bathroom.
On the first floor is the spacious 15ft6 master bedroom which extends across the entire front of the house, second double bedroom and third small double/spacious single bedroom to the rear.
Whilst the property would benefit from certain cosmetic updating, there is gas fired central heating with recently installed Worcester boiler.
Potential... - In our opinion, there is plenty of scope to extend and/or reconfigure the accommodation this home offers, including converting the third bedroom into a first floor family bathroom, thus creating the space for a large kitchen/diner on the ground floor. There is also scope to extend the kitchen to the side and potentially convert the loft space into an additional bedroom, if required.
To the front, there is ample space to install driveway parking and neighbouring properties have undertaken such work.
All works would of course be subject to gaining the necessary planning permissions.
Outside... - To the rear is a sunny cottage garden which enjoys a south-easterly aspect and boasts a plethora of plants, flowers & shrubs. The garden could be re-designed if necessary to suit a purchaser looking for low maintenance, but sunny outside space. There is also an attractive & established front garden, which is laid mainly to lawn.
Location... - High Croft is situated on Mill Lane, just off of Haywards Heath Road within walk of village facilities including numerous shops and stores, tea room, village pub, social club, church, sports clubs, primary school and the mainline train station which provides services to London, Brighton and Gatwick International Airport.
Haywards Heath and Crawley offer more extensive shopping and leisure facilities in addition to mainline railway stations (Haywards Heath to Victoria or London Bridge both approximately 47mins). By road, access to surrounding areas can be gained via the A23(M) which lies approximately 4.5 miles to the west at Handcross or north at Maidenbower.
Balcombe is surrounded by beautiful Sussex countryside. To the east are Balcombe lake & Ardingly Reservoir with their variety of footpaths, bridleways and angling facilities.
