On the market after nearly 16 wonderful years of occupation by current owners who are most reluctantly leaving due to increasing age - a very special house which is secluded and most surprisingly peaceful, yet within easy reach of Gatwick, mainline railway stations and the motorway network.
This extended 1930's family home has been remodelled over the years and now offers a blend of country living with modern convenience and being located within a private lane, the property enjoys a high degree of privacy and seclusion with pleasant countryside views. The accommodation currently comprises an enclosed storm porch leading through to the entrance hall, there is a modern kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances, the kitchen has a double aspect with beautiful views across the countryside vista. From the hallway there is a useful utility room and downstairs WC, a further hallway leading through to the main living areas including the triple aspect sitting room with feature fireplace, double aspect dining room, good size study and a stunning conservatory/sitting room which enjoys the full view of the delightful gardens. The first floor has four double bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes, the main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is also a re-fitted contemporary style family bathroom and a further guest shower room. The property nestles within its own gardens to all sides, the main area to the rear is lawned with mature trees, flower borders and hedging providing a secluded garden. The large patio terrace accessed via the conservatory perfect for those summer evenings and al fresco dining. The front garden is accessed via an electronic five bar gate which leads onto the large shingle driveway where there is a raised lawned front garden, a double car barn, log store, ample off street parking. There is also a good size double garage at the rear of the plot which is accessed via another gate further down Springfield Lane. In the rear garden there is also a good size summer house.
