Stockcroft Road, Balcombe
The House... - ‘Wynstay Cottage’ is a detached character home offered for sale for the first time since the 1960s and we believe it dates from the Victorian era and was the former coach house for a larger neighbouring home. The house occupies a sizable plot of ¼ acre on Stockcroft Road – one of Mid Sussex’s premier residential roads and set well back with a beautiful long front garden with an impressive triple bay garage to the rear.
Internally, the house has clearly been loved and is offered for sale in good decorative order throughout with some impressive living spaces including a 20ft x 18ft sitting room with open fireplace and two large west facing windows. The split-level dining/family room was the result of an extension in the late eighties, has a 10ft vaulted ceiling and doors opening on the garden. There are also doors that leads through to the conservatory meaning the ground floor has a fantastic flow. The conservatory itself is Victorian in style, spacious and has a sunken ‘jacuzzi bath’. The compact kitchen has shaker-style units, granite worktops and integrated appliances (oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer and washing machine).
The ground floor also has a cloakroom.
The turned staircase leads to the first floor which boasts three double bedrooms and the family bathroom with separate shower.
Further benefits include tasteful décor and gas central heating.
Step Outside... - To the rear is an impressive (30ft x 20ft) triple bay garage, built in the mid-1980s, and provides vast storage or an ideal space for car enthusiast. There is a large, paved terrace and garden area. There is a long block-paved driveway that runs the entire width of the plot.
To the front is a beautiful, established garden with large, paved terrace, expanse of lawn and a selection of plants, trees & shrubs. The garden extends to approximately 100ft.
In total, the plot extends to approximately ¼ of an acre.
Scope/Potential... - The house offers, in our opinion, plenty of scope & potential for sizeable extension to the rear, front and loft space to create substantial family home in a prime village location. Replacing the conservatory with a brick-built extension could create a stunning open plan kitchen/dining/family room. A rear extension or loft conversion would create a 4th bedroom with en suite. There is also scope to convert the garaging into ancillary accommodation and create a games room/studio above. Any work is of course subject to planning permission.
The Location... - Stockcroft Road is arguably the premier residential road within the sought after village of Balcombe. Village facilities include numerous shops and stores, tea room, village pubs, social club, church, sports clubs, primary school and the mainline train station providing links to London, Gatwick Airport and Brighton.
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. The area is renowned for the standard of its schooling in both the private and state sectors with Balcombe Primary School being particularly reputable. A school bus runs through the village providing transport to Warden Park secondary school in the neighbouring village of Cuckfield. In the private sector Worth School is less than 4 miles distant in Turners Hill, whilst Ardingly College, Great Walstead and Burgess Hill School for Girls are all easily accessible.
