Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a freehold former stable set in the exclusive gated community of "Buckswood Grange". A private and secluded setting but still within walking distance to the town of Uckfield. The property not only benefits from its own private garden but with access to three further acres of communal land and tennis courts to enjoy.

Fine & Country are delighted to bring Stable Cottage to the market.

A fine property which was once part of the former stables to the early Victorian Mansion Rocks House (1838)

Buckswood Grange, as it is now called, is an exclusive gated development created from the conversion and refurbishment of this attractive mansion and it's outbuildings. It was previously used as a private school. Within the development there is a mixture of two, three and four bedroom homes

On arriving through the automatic wrought iron gates, and to the left, are Stable Cottage's two exclusive parking spaces. There are Visitor parking spaces. Entering through the main door is a large shared lobby serving the front doors to numbers 18 and 19

Stepping inside you find a spacious hall, a perfect place for welcoming guests. Off the hall is a study and/or bedroom. There is a large wall to wall fitted wardrobe, currently providing hanging rails, drawers and extensive shelving. A fine suite of purpose designed desk, book shelves and low level cupboards are also installed, making it an ideal home office. If needed, the office furniture and bookcases can be removed

Also leading off the hall is a bathroom, with bath and overhead shower and screen, WC, wash-hand basin and heated towel rail.

Moving into the main living area, the current owners have a large sofa, two arm chairs and a boudoir grand piano. The dining area contains a dining table and a large sideboard. It is a lovely light space with a high ceiling with windows and French doors leading into a walled garden. The living area flows easily into the kitchen, equipped with all essential built-in appliances

Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with WC and wash hand basin. There is also a built-in wardrobe. Both bedrooms benefit from fine views across the grounds and under eaves storage space

Stepping outside you have a patio area which is pleasant for al-fresco dining and enjoying the evening sun. You also have a grass lawned area, with surrounding shrubs, flowers and a shingled pathway leading to the garden sheds and back gate. This gives you access to the communal grounds with just over three acres of land, tennis courts and woodlands. And if that's not enough you also benefit from having your own private entrance to "Lake Wood" where you have a further twenty acres to enjoy at your own leisure.

Moving on to the location, "Buckswood Grange" is situated on the north-western edge of the town, adjacent to open countryside, West Park Nature Reserve and The Woodland Trust's Lake Wood. It is within half a mile of the facilities of the town centre including two supermarkets, a range of shops, public houses, restaurants, cinema, library and the church. Within the town there are several primary schools, the Community College, the Leisure Centre with swimming pool, and at the bottom of the High Street is the rail station offering services to London bridge and London Victoria from about 75 minutes.

The A22 by-passes Uckfield, linking with the A26 and A272 to provide access to many surrounding towns and the main road/motorway network, with Gatwick Airport about 26 miles. The historic town is surrounded by open countryside and about four miles to the north is the Ashdown Forest; at circa 6,500 acres it is the largest free public access open space in the South East and a venue for many leisure pursuits, including horse riding by permit. The Forest is also home to Winnie the Pooh and friends, as immortalised in the books of A.A. Milne.

There are state and private schools for all age groups in the area and several golf clubs in the vicinity, most notably the East Sussex National and Piltdown being within half a mile. There are riding centres at Hickstead, Croxstead and Golden Cross, a range of water sports on the coast at Eastbourne and Brighton and opera at Glyndebourne, plus a number of National Trust Properties.
