A simply stunning and architecturally unique 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached family home spanning over 3,100 sq ft. This modern and contemporary executive house is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac development of just 4 houses, and located on one of the most prime residential roads in the extremely desirable village of Cuckfield. The house, which was built in 2018, comprises in short of; five double bedrooms, three bath and shower rooms (two are en-suite), large kitchen / dinner with central island, living room, family room, utility room, downstairs cloakroom, integral garage, driveway for numerous vehicles and a private South West facing garden with views over the South Downs.

The House

There is a pillared covered porch which leads to the modern front door with large glass wall to the right. The front door opens directly into a large open hallway with stairs to the first floor directly infront. There is a large window on the left at the bottom of the stairs, and one at the top of the stairs on the first floor landing, These, accompanied by the glass wall by the front door result in this space being flooded with natural daylight. The hallway, as well as being large enough for a variety of freestanding furniture, has a practical space underneath the stairs which my clients utilise as a small home office.

The first door in the hallway on the right after entering the house is access into the garage. The garage measures 18’2 ft x 14’10 ft and has power, light and an electrically automated roller door. It is a width and a half, and therefore can store one vehicle and there is still room for a workbench or further storage if desired. The room beyond the garage is the family room which doubles up as a playroom. It has two low windows which can be opened if desired to gain direct access onto the side terrace, and the pedestrian side gate onto the driveway and rear garden. The next room on the right of the hallway is the utility room which comprises of; work surfaces, wall and base units, stainless steel sink and drainer, space and plumbing for a washing machine, space for a dryer, tiled flooring, boiler, and a glazed door leading to the side terrace. Opposite the utility room is a useful storage cupboard which houses the internet and electrical cabling, as well as the pipes for the underfloor heating. There is a downstairs cloakroom with part tiled walls, a frosted window to the side, white WC and a floating white wash hand basin with storage drawer underneath.

Moving to the back of the house can be found the living room and the kitchen / dining room. The kitchen / dining room is a fantastic room which measures 23’2 ft x 16’1 ft, and is truly the ‘hub of the home’. It is a bright room due to the window to the side, full length window to the rear, and enormous sliding bi-fold patio doors which concertina all the way back. This results in a seamless linking to the Indian sandstone rear terrace, making it a wonderful social space especially in the warmer months. The kitchen / dining room has space for a large dining room table and chairs as well as additional dining room furniture. The kitchen consists of; Corian top work surfaces, white and light brown soft close wall and base units, stainless steel one and half bowl sink with environmentally friendly InSinkErator, Quooker tap with automatic boiling water and filter function, integrated appliances include; fridge/freezer, Siemens dishwasher, slim wine fridge, as well as Siemens microwave, steam oven, and two self-clean fan ovens. There is also an impressive central island with Corian top which is fitted with a five-ring gas hob, drawers and cupboards one side and space for four bar stools the other side with further storage. There is an extractor above the hob cleverly built into the ceiling.

The living room faces in a south westerly direction, and is therefore a wonderfully light room all year round. It is a generous size measuring 20’11 ft x 16’2 ft and has two large windows to the side, one to the rear and bi fold doors. These, again like the kitchen ones, lead directly out onto the rear terrace. There is a large bespoke made television cabinet with storage areas and cupboards underneath where the television would be mounted. The room doubles as a cinema room which my clients have fitted with additional Dolby Atmos ceiling speakers and wiring for surround sound. Unlike the rest of the ground floor, this room is carpeted. This, twinned with the large glass fronted woodburner, provides the room with a cosy feel – perfect for colder months.

The ground floor is laid with smart wood effect tiles and has individually thermostatically controlled underfloor heating in each room. The hall, stairs, kitchen and living room all have programmable electric blinds. This completes the ground floor accommodation.

There is a beautifully hand crafted oak staircase which leads to the large open first floor landing, where five bedrooms and three bath and shower rooms can be found. The landing has a large window to the side which affords views over the South Downs, as well as allowing huge amounts of natural light into this space.

The impressive master suite has an en-suite bathroom and a walk in dressing room. The bedroom itself faces due West, and is a large room measuring 21’ ft x 18’10 ft. It has floor to ceiling windows (with programmable electric blinds) which span the entire length of the room creating a real ‘wow’ factor to this master bedroom. The walk in dressing room has a velux window, and a large fitted unit down one side of the room providing a variety of hanging space, shelving and drawers. The en-suite bathroom is well appointed and consists of; sandstone coloured wall and floor tiles, two frosted floor to ceiling windows, large fitted mirror, chrome heated towel rail, glass shower cubicle with rain head shower, floating Villeroy & Boch wash hand basin with storage drawer underneath, white Villeroy & Boch WC, and a standalone deep white oval bath with wall mounted waterfall tap.

Bedroom 2 faces the front of the house and has a pleasant view overlooking the rest of the development. It has a triple built in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room with a frosted window to the side. The shower room has tiled flooring and part tiled walls, a chrome heated towel rail, white WC, white wash hand basin and a shower cubicle. Bedroom 3 is located next to Bedroom 2, and also faces the front of the house. It is a large double, and has a row of built wardrobes, and also the main loft hatch for the house.

Bedrooms 4 and 5 are both double bedrooms measuring 12’8 ft x 11’47ft and 16’1 ft x 9’7 ft respectively, and both have programmable electric blinds. Bedroom 4 has a velux window and a floor to ceiling window facing the front. Bedroom 5 has a floor to ceiling window facing the front. The main family bathroom has a frosted window to the side, and is luxurious in its appointment. It consists of; smart stylish floor and wall tiles, chrome heated towel rail, large glass shower cubicle with rain head shower, floating Villeroy & Boch wash hand basin with storage drawer underneath, white Villeroy & Boch WC, and a standalone deep white oval bath with wall mounted waterfall tap. There is a large airing cupboard on the landing which has wooden shelving and houses the hot water tank. This completes the first floor accommodation.


To the front of the house is a large block paved driveway providing parking for up to six vehicles. The driveway is bordered on two sides by post and rail fencing interweaved with laurel hedging. The other side is flanked by a long timber planked raised bed and a high brick wall. There are external lights positioned on all four sides of the house, external power sockets, and two outside taps.

The rear garden extends to the side and rear and is South Westerly in its orientation. It provides a wonderful space for entertaining and children to play. There is a huge Indian sandstone terrace which sprawls out from the back and side of the house, enabling placement of a variety of outside furniture. There are steps down from the terrace onto a good sized lawn area where children can play happily for hours on end, and an additional gravel path, lined with grasses, to the right that also leads to the lawn area and has spectacular views out across the South Downs. There are steps down again from this lawned area to a further level which my clients have used an in-ground trampoline. My clients engaged a garden designer to create the prairie style garden which included a large number of borders filled with an abundant variety of colourful flowers, shrubs and grasses. This garden is quite simply stunning! It is surprisingly low maintenance, and as such can be enjoyed all year round, especially in the warmer months.

The Area

From Evelyn house, the high street of Cuckfield and all its many amenities can be reached by foot within a matter of minutes. There are two public footpaths which radiate out around the village, which can be reached within a five and ten minute walk from the house itself. This makes Evelyn house perfect for families and dog owners alike.

Cuckfield village has four pubs; The Talbot, Rose & Crown, The White Harte, and The Wheatsheaf. There are more places to eat and drink in the village with the Cuckfield Pantry, Tea room and Diner, Cuckfield Corner House Café and Cuckfish, and the highly acclaimed Ockenden Manor & Spa Hotel. There are two convenience shops in the village, one being a Co-op store. There is the newly re-furbished village hall which hosts activities for many of the clubs and societies that run in the village including the Cuckfield Pre-school playgroup. The village has its own medical centre serving the local residents.

The Cuckfield recreation ground is about a 20 minute walk from the house, and Whitemans Green is about a 10 minute walk. They are both perfect for dog walking or for children to kick a football around. The Cuckfield recreation ground has various sports pitches and tennis courts regularly used by the villages football and tennis clubs. There is also a children’s playground and paddling pool, and the pavilion there opens as a summer café. The annual bonfire and firework display is also held at Cuckfield Manor House and is a huge event in the village’s calendar drawing large local crowds. Nearby is the village cricket pitch with well-regarded adult and child teams. There are many footpaths which radiate out from the village to the surrounding countryside and New England Wood, providing numerous delightful walks. Further leisure activities in the local area include; golf at the many surrounding golf courses, sailing/water sports on Ardingly reservoir, the famous South of England Showground with its many events and three National Trust gardens (Wakehurst Place, Sheffield Park and Nymans), as well as Borde Hill Gardens are all within the local vicinity.

The village of Lindfield and Haywards Heath town are a short drive and provide a further comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities together with the mainline London to Brighton train station next door to a large Waitrose store.

Brighton with all of its many amenities and attractions is 16 miles away and Crawley is 10 miles away. Gatwick airport can be reached by car in around 20 minutes to the north.

St Joseph’s Catholic, Harlands, Warden Park Academy and St Wilfreds primary schools in Haywards Heath are all within 2 miles. Ardingly College is only 4.2 miles away, and is a very well respected independent boarding and day school which takes children from 3-18 including a very successful prep and sixth form.
