The house has the benefit of gas central heating and double glazed sash windows replicating the original style and incorporates 6/7 bedrooms, 2 shower rooms (one en suite), bathroom, a fine triple aspect sitting and living room, large dining room, a well fitted country style kitchen/breakfast room and on the lower ground floor there is a TV room, good size laundry and a small study. There is off road parking to the rear for 2 vehicles and the most attractive partly walled gardens extend to 105 feet (maximum) in length, enjoy a favoured southerly and easterly aspect and are arranged mainly as a level lawn with raised paved sun terrace.

Situated on the corner with Deanland Road in a quiet yet central village location within walking distance of the mainline railway station offering an excellent service to central London (London Bridge 38 minutes, Victoria 47 minutes). The village offers a good local shop, nursery, primary school, inn, social club and historic parish church and there are several footpaths in the immediate vicinity providing a natural venue for countryside walks. Haywards Heath lies just over 5 miles to the south providing a wide range of shops, an array of restaurants, a modern leisure centre and several well regarded schools. Horsham is about 11 miles and Crawley 7 miles distant, whilst the M23 (junction 10a) is just 3.5 miles to the north providing a direct route to the motorway network and nearby Gatwick Airport (9.8 miles).
