BEST & FINAL OFFERS BY 12 NOON ON WED 8TH SEPT - WATCH THE VIDEO | Introducing...Stumble Cottage on the prestigious Oldlands Avenue. This detached home dates from 1924, boasts an enviable southerly plot of just under an acre with its own woodland and offers stacks of potential for sizeable extension STPP. GUIDE PRICE: £900,000 - £925,000

The House... - PSPhomes are delighted to introduce Stumble Cottage – a detached house that dates from 1924 and occupies a stunning south facing plot that is believed to extend to just under an acre on the prestigious Oldlands Avenue in Balcombe – one of Mid Sussex’s most sought-after villages.

This is a rarely available opportunity to acquire a home with a vast amount of potential for substantial extension to all sides of the house and would suit a discerning purchaser would result in a truly bespoke family home in an enviable village location.

The house itself offers plenty of character and has been greatly improved since the current owners purchased through PSPhomes in 2013 including repositioning the staircase, rewiring, replumbing/upgrading the heating, refitting the kitchen (formerly just a scullery), moving the bathroom to the first floor and replacement double glazed windows being installed throughout.

The current accommodation includes a lovely 23ft sitting room that extends across the entire rear of the house with two bay windows with window seats making the most of the outlook over the garden. The open fireplace is perfect for a chilly winter’s evening and the wooden floors provide plenty of character. The social kitchen is fitted in a shaker style with wooden worktops and ample space for a dining table. There is also a ground floor utility room with WC.

On the first floor are four well-proportioned bedrooms and the modern family bathroom.

Step Outside... - Outside is where this home really comes into its own. We believe the plot extends to just under an acre and the southerly aspect means there is sunshine throughout the day. The plot forms a T shape with a stunning formal garden leading on to a beautiful native and non native mixed mature woodland area that includes a Big Redwood, established Oak Tree and various others.

There is a large summerhouse and detached garage that both provide useful storage.

The Location... - Oldlands Avenue is one of the premier residential roads within the sought after village of Balcombe. Village facilities include numerous shops and stores, tea room, village pub, 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 both Handcross Park School (attached to Brighton College) and Worth School are less than 4 miles distant in Handcross and Turners Hill respectively, whilst Ardingly College, Great Walstead and Burgess Hill School for Girls are all easily accessible.
