Spacious and very well presented 1930s semi-detached family home.

13 Gander Hill is one of a pair of attractive Sussex-style part tile hung semi detached houses, designed by local architect Ralph Knight and built in 1934. The house is ideally located, within easy reach of both the town’s mainline railway station and Lindfield’s picturesque tree-lined High Street, and offers excellent family living over three floors, extending to an impressive 2,600 square feet. The house has been extended and much improved by the current owner to offer spacious, very well presented and versatile accommodation, including the addition of a large orangery/dining room, a wonderful principal bedroom suite on the second floor and a detached timber studio in the garden. The result is a super family home, attractively combining modern décor and finishes with original period features, such as a stained glass window over the landing and a wealth of oak detailing including an elegant turned staircase.

The solid oak front door opens to a large and welcoming entrance hall, from which stairs rise to the upper floors and there is access to a cloakroom. There are two reception rooms off the hall: The reception room to the front of the house has a bay window overlooking the front garden and a brick open fireplace; the sitting room has oak-framed bi-fold doors opening to the adjoining orangery and has provision for a wall-mounted television with recessed storage space under.

The L-shaped kitchen is fitted with a range of white gloss units and black worktops, with twin Neff ovens, an electric hob and extractor, and an integrated microwave; there are spaces for a large fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and laundry appliances, and doors opening to both the rear terrace and side passage. Double doors open to the orangery which spans almost the entire back of the house, a versatile room currently used as a dining room, with a huge roof lantern flooding the room with light, a wall of fitted book shelving, luxury vinyl flooring with under floor heating, and French doors to the terrace.

There are four well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor lying off a galleried landing, together with a limestone tiled family bathroom with modern white suite. The superb principal bedroom suite is on the second floor and comprises a large bedroom with three-quarter height windows with a glass Juliet balcony overlooking the garden, together with a separate shower room. Accessed from the shower room is a large walk-in storage cupboard.

Number 13 is set back from Gander Hill in an elevated position, screened from the road by mature trees. A driveway, flanked to one side by an area of lawn, offers parking for three cars and leads to the integral single garage, which has been used as a workshop and has the original doors, a sink, rafter storage and fitted racking.

There is gated access at the side of the house to the rear garden. The garden has been attractively re-landscaped, arranged over a series of terraces. Next to the house is a large sandstone terrace offering an ideal spot for an outside table and chairs, beyond which are three tiers of level lawn, edged by brick walls. At the top of the garden is an insulated timber studio with power connected and internet access, which is ideal as a homeworking space; a timber garden shed is tucked away in the top most corner.

Gander Hill is on the favoured eastern edge of Haywards Heath, ideally located for the town’s mainline railway station and the neighbouring village of Lindfield. Lindfield is well-known for its historic lime tree-lined High Street, large village common and pond, and offers very good local amenities including a variety of shops, boutiques and public houses. Haywards Heath provides a further range of facilities, including high street shops, restaurants, supermarkets (including a Waitrose) and a leisure centre; more comprehensive shopping can be found in Brighton, Crawley and Tunbridge Wells (15,11 and 21 miles respectively).

Sporting and recreational activities are extensive, with golf at Haywards Heath, Lindfield and Piltdown, racing at Plumpton and Brighton, sailing at Weir Wood and Ardingly reservoirs and along the South Coast, and walking and riding locally including the South Downs National Park and on the Ashdown Forest. The renowned Glyndebourne Opera House is just east of Lewes and the vibrant city of Brighton and Hove has a thriving theatre culture, festivals and events.

Mainline rail service: Haywards Heath station is about half a mile distant, or about 12 minutes’ walk, with services to London Bridge/Victoria from 42 minutes.

Schools: There is an excellent range of schools in the area, both state and private, including Blackthorns and Lindfield primary schools and Oathall Community College, Cumnor House, Great Walstead, Ardingly College, Worth, Burgess Hill Girls and Hurstpierpoint College.
