Mill Hall dates from 1856, the wing forming Reid House is believed to have been added between 1890-95. The extension was clearly added as the 'show wing', with rooms of truly impressive proportions: a grand ballroom (now the drawing room), a handsome dining room (now the kitchen and sitting room) and two large bedrooms, ideally placed to take in the panoramic views to the north. The home of the eponymous Reid family from 1907-1947, it then became a well-respected school for the deaf until 1996 when it was divided into three properties. Reid House was at this time acquired by our clients.
During their refurbishment of the property the house was carefully returned to its former glory: suspended ceilings were removed to reveal elaborate ornamental plasterwork, the panelling uncovered and original Victorian flooring restored. The result is an elegant and impressive period house, yet with all the warmth of a comfortable family home. The full extent of the layout and generous room sizes can be seen on the floor plans that follow.
Reid House is approached via a shared private driveway, which leads to a parking area providing ample parking for a number of cars. A pathway leads from the parking area to a large paved terrace and to the front door; the terrace offers an ideal spot for taking in the garden and views beyond.
The garden is made up of a number of areas: there is a gravel area planted with a variety of shrubs and grasses; a wild flower garden providing a perfect environment for butterflies and bees; a further patio with timber pergola over; and an expanse of lawn with a small fish pond and boules court.
Reid House has a right of way over the first part of the driveway.
From the centre of Cuckfield proceed north on the B2114 (towards Staplefield). Pass through the 50mph reminder signs and the driveway to Mill Hall can be found on the right hand side, almost immediately opposite Haywards Heath rugby club.
