Built, we believe, in 1980 this handsome half tile hung family home boasts broad steps to the entrance porch and double doors leading to a welcoming reception hall. The triple aspect sitting room, with ornate period fireplace and working fire, provides a comfortable space to relax; with French doors opening to the rear terrace and garden beyond. The light, triple aspect dining room also has open views across the rear garden, whilst the study provides a quiet space that overlooks the front garden. Stylish engineered oak flooring provides continuity from the reception hall through to the sitting and dining rooms. The fully fitted kitchen is dual aspect and benefits from a built-in eye level double oven and 5-burner gas hob, a breakfast counter for informal family meals and provides access to the separate utility room.
From the spacious first floor landing, doors lead to the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and wide Juliette balcony overlooking the rear garden; four further double bedrooms (one with built-in wardrobes) and a family bathroom with separate shower.
Within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Highlands is situated in the pretty and sought after village of Warninglid with its well-regarded local pub, village primary school and strong local community. The neighbouring village of Handcross (1 mile distance) also has several local shops and a post office, with boutique shops in nearby Cuckfield and a full range of facilities just 5 miles away in Haywards Heath.
The local Sussex countryside offers plenty of picturesque walks, including the High Weald Landscape Trail from Horsham to Cuckfield which passes the village and the popular Bolney Wine Estate. Nearby recreational facilities include several top golf courses as well as Hickstead equestrian sports venue and racing at Brighton and Goodwood.
Both Horsham and Haywards Heath have mainline rail services to London Victoria (54 minutes and 43 minutes respectively) and there is easy access to the A23/M23 and wider motorway network. There are also a number of excellent schools in the area including Handcross Park Preparatory School, Cottesmore, Brighton College, Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill School for Girls and Ardingly College.
The property is approached via an electric five-bar gate to the drive which, along with the detached double garage, provides ample parking. To the rear, a paved terraced area extends the living space of the house and provides the perfect area for outside entertaining.
The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, including a beautiful Magnolia tree, and hedge borders providing seclusion and privacy. A separate sun terrace and summer house, with power and light, provide additional space to relax and enjoy this beautiful setting. At the front, an area of garden to the side and rear of the garage has the potential for a vegetable garden.
