There are a selection of village pubs including The Red Lion and Royal Oak, St. Mary’s Church and reputable schooling in both the private (Handcross Park School) & state (Handcross Primary School) sector. For secondary education in the state sector, children usually attend Warden Park in the neighbouring village of Cuckfield. The village is surrounded by beautiful Sussex countryside including, Nymans Gardens and The Hyde Estate.

Handcross is ideally situated for the A23(M) which provides swift access to the M25, London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport. Balcombe station is just four miles distant and provides mainline services into London and Brighton. Three Bridges station is six miles distant and provides regular services on the mainline.

PROPERTY The front door opens into a Hall, which has stairs leading to the first floor and doors opening to both Reception Rooms, which have picture rails, a common theme throughout.

To the front of the property is the Sitting Room, which has a large bay window flooding the room with natural light and a wood burning stove*, with an exposed brick surround. There is also a wood burning stove* in the Living Room, which is open plan to the extended Kitchen/Diner, making this a great house for entertaining. The Kitchen was recently replaced, is flooded by light via the Velux windows in the ceiling, has a range of appliances* and space for a large table, with views over the 100ft+ Rear Garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the WC.

To the first floor you will find two large double Bedrooms, with Bedroom 3 boasting an original cast iron fireplace and the recently refitted Family Bathroom, which has a separate bath & shower cubicle and a cupboard which could house your washing machine and tumble drier.

To the second floor is the impressive Master Bedroom, which boasts a large amount of built in wardrobes and a modern En Suite Shower Room.

OUTSIDE To the front of the property is a path leading to the front door, which has an original tiled step and a well kept walled garden, which is mainly shingle, with planted pots providing a splash of colour.

When stepping into the Rear Garden, you find yourself on a brick paved patio, which is perfect for barbecues in the summer months. This leads on to an expanse of lawn, which measures in excess of 100ft. Beyond the wall running along the right hand side of the boundary, the garden opens up, doubling in width with a summer house* that has isolated power and lighting.

This area is rented from the National Trust, an agreement that we believe will be transferred to the new owner.
