The property unusually comes with a huge six car garage and workshop.

Property ref: 121_564_4244449


The Location 
The property is situated on the western side of the town, just outside the conservation area and within about 400 yards of the facilities of the town centre. Uckfield offers a host of shops, two supermarkets, banks, restaurants and public houses, cinema, several primary schools, Community College and Leisure Centre with swimming pool. The rail station provides services to London Victoria and London Bridge from about 75 minutes.

The A22 by-passes Uckfield, linking with the A26 and the A272 to provide access to many surrounding towns and the main road/motorway network, with Gatwick Airport about 26 miles. The town is surrounded by open countryside and just to the north is the Ashdown Forest; at about 6,500 acres it is the largest free public access open space in the South East and a venue for many leisure pursuits.

The Property 
This charming individual home carries a plaque suggesting its date of construction as 1895 and local records show that it was the gatekeeper's lodge to the former Belmont Estate that dominated the western side of the town at that time.

The house has been significantly modernised and improved with a large ground floor extension added to the side. It currently offers an unusual balance of accommodation with three receptions, sun room, kitchen, utility, shower room and cloakroom on the ground floor but just two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Planning permission was granted to add two further bedrooms and a second bathroom but this was not carried out and the consent has now lapsed.

The property sits on a lovely mature plot of circa 0.4 acres and has the benefit of a huge garage and workshop at the bottom of the garden capable of holding six or more cars.
