Full description

Tenure: Freehold

1950s four bedroom house offering excellent development potential, situated in a two acre plot on a sought-after private road.


Southease is situated on Copyhold Lane, a popular private road between Cuckfield and Haywards Heath on which houses rarely come to the market. The property is one of only four houses on the south side of the lane, and is adjacent to fields and countryside. Copyhold Lane is within easy reach of Cuckfield and Haywards Heath for everyday needs, while the popular towns of Horsham and Brighton offer a more extensive range of shopping facilities. Central London is less than 40 miles away.

Local Amenities: Cuckfield has a good range of local amenities including a convenience store/post office, petrol station, medical centre, variety of independent village shops, public houses, restaurants and a hotel and Spa.

Comprehensive Shopping: Haywards Heath, Brighton, Horsham and Crawley.

Mainline Rail Service: There is a fast and frequent commuter service from Haywards Heath (1.5 miles distant) with services to London Bridge/Victoria from 42 minutes.

Schools: There is an excellent range of educational facilities locally, in both the private and state sectors. They include Holy Trinity primary and Warden Park secondary schools in Cuckfield, Great Walstead, Cumnor House, Handcross Park School, Burgess Hill School for Girls, Ardingly College and Hurstpierpoint College.


Southease is a four bedroom brick and tile-hung house situated in an enviable location on one of Cuckfield's most sought-after private roads. It has been owned by the same family since it was built in the early 1950s, and presents an excellent opportunity for refurbishment or redevelopment.

Although it is in need of improvement, Southease has clearly been a very happy family home and offers its next owners huge potential, subject to planning permission. The current accommodation extends to 2,224 sq ft and is arranged over two floors; the full layout can be seen on the floorplans.

Southease sits at the top of a superb two-acre, south-facing garden adjacent to the surrounding fields and countryside, and has some views of the South Downs. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, gently sloping away from the house and bordered by hedging, with a York stone terrace and kitchen garden next to the house.

To the front, the property is screened by established conifers, with an in-and-out driveway leading past a timber garage and the front of the house to a parking area.

Agent's Note
Copyhold Lane is a private road and each household contributes an annual charge for maintenance of the lane.
