The Old Bakery is a charming, period village house which has been significantly improved by the current owner. The house provides deceptively spacious and well-arranged accommodation over two floors with the added flexibility of an interconnecting annexe on the ground floor which can easily be incorporated within the house.
An oak front door leads through into the spacious dining hall which instantly provides a good sense of space with a high timbered ceiling. The dining hall is semi-open plan to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of light wooden fronted units and incorporates an integrated dishwasher, Neff microwave, Zanussi oven and a two-oven Aga. Also located on the ground floor is the spacious sitting room with a wood burning stove and feature exposed sandstone wall, a study and a utility room with direct access to the garden. Approached from the study is the interconnecting annexe which provides further flexibility.
Other features of note include a bespoke solid oak staircase, oak doors and floors.
On the first floor there is a particularly spacious landing, a generous principal suite with lovely views, three further double bedrooms – two with fireplaces, and a well-appointed family shower room.
The Old Bakery lies in the centre of this sought after village which provides a primary school, village hall and church which lies a short distance from the property. The larger village of Horsted Keynes is only about 1.5 miles with its village store and public house.
There are an excellent range of shopping and recreational facilities to be found in both Lewes and Haywards Heath, both of which are within easy reach. For the commuter Haywards Heath has a fast and frequent mainline train service to London (London Bridge/Victoria about 47 minutes). The A23/M23 provides fast access to Gatwick, the M25 and the national motorway network. The beautiful National Trust gardens at Sheffield Park and the famous historic Bluebell Railway lie to the north.
To one side of the house is an area of off road parking for one car. From the parking area a pedestrian gate gives access to the rear garden. Immediately adjacent to the house is a wide elevated seating area from which there is a lovely outlook over the garden and treetops. From the seating area steps lead down to two lawns. To one side of the lower lawn is a former privy and a timber garden store.
