Cuckfield house dates from 1820 and has had an eclectic number of uses over the years. From a private residence, to a school, to residential flats and was then converted in to offices in the 1980s. The conversion back in to one principle residences of the village started in 2012 and took 3 years. The current owner stripped everything back to the original shell and meticulously re built the property to what is now both a wonderful grand but also eminently manageable family home. The attention to detail of the layout concentrates on the symmetry associated with the Regency/early Victorian era. All the rooms lead off a central corridor on each floor with the intention that the doors and windows are generally aligned from East to West and North to South. Especially on the ground floor where almost all of the windows overlooking the beautiful garden focus on their own individual feature.

Further examples of the attention to detail can be found in the sensational bespoke fitted kitchen which has a superb range of Gaggenau appliances as well as, two boiling water taps, 3 dishwashers, 5 fridges, a wok burner, a fully interactive induction hob, a barbeque and even a wood oven. There is also wet underfloor heating on throughout the ground and basement powered by its own boiler and dry under floor heating on the top two floors.
