A simply stunning 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage oozing with character, combined with the most modern and well-appointed of interiors. This unique property is situated in the heart of the desirable village of Cuckfield, and located directly on the high street itself.

This wonderful Grade 2 listed cottage is as historic and characterful as they come. It has been very recently completely re-modelled to create a brand new home finished to the very highest of standards. The current owner has created a wonderfully light, practical and modern 3 bedroom, two bathroom home, which spans over 1,290sq ft. The house is located on the main high street in the popular historic village of Cuckfield. Knights House has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one on the ground floor and one on the first floor), living / dining room, fully fitted kitchen with space for dining room furniture, a small utility room, large first floor landing perfect for home working, small courtyard garden and gated secure parking for one car.

The House

The house is entered through an attractive solid oak front door. The front door opens directly into the incredible living / dining room with exposed original beams. There is a large rectangular bay window which overlooks the high street and allows a huge amount of natural daylight into the room, whilst providing a lovely seating area. The room is large enough for a variety of living room furniture but also for dining furniture at either end of the room if desired. There is a solid oak door from the living / dining room which leads to an inner hallway. From this inner hallway can be found the utility room, downstairs bathroom, kitchen / diner, staircase to the first floor and access to the rear courtyard garden.

The downstairs bathroom faces the rear of the house and consists of; LED recessed spotlights, black tiled flooring, part tiled marble effect wall tiles, panelled white bath with mixer taps and shower over, white WC and marble topped sink unit with useful storage drawers underneath. Directly opposite the downstairs bathroom is the utility room which has LED recessed spotlights, shelving and plumbing and space for a washing machine, and space for a dryer.

Moving back into the hallway and towards the back of the house is a glazed stable door to the courtyard garden and parking. The kitchen / diner is at the back of the house and has been installed with a brand new fitted kitchen. The room is wonderfully light due to a huge skylight flooding the room with natural daylight, one window which faces the rear and one to the side. It has exposed original beams, modern LED recessed spotlights, engineered wooden flooring and an internal glazed window which looks out onto the inner hallway. The kitchen is fitted with; shaker style white soft close base cupboard and drawer units, Corian white work surfaces, ceramic butler sink, integrated dishwasher, 5 ring Kenwood range cooker and stainless steel extractor above. The kitchen has space for a selection of dining room furniture meaning that the property has flexibility in its dining space either in the kitchen or living room, or both.

Stairs lead from the hallway to the first floor landing where three bedrooms and a bathroom can be found. The landing is a large space which again is flooded with natural daylight through another large skylight. The configuration of the landing allows for a snug set up or a desk and chair making for a perfect work space. Bedroom one is a beautiful room which faces the front of the house with impressive valuated ceiling and a plethora of exposed original beams. The room has a double built in wardrobe with hanging rail and a velux window, which contributes to the amount of natural light into this room. Bedroom two is a large double and faces the back of the house with a window to the rear and to the side. This room also has a double built in wardrobe with hanging rail, and shelving above. It also has a built in wardrobe with shelving. This room like with Bedroom 1 has a large velux window which floods this room with a large amount of natural daylight and could quite easily be used as the main bedroom. Bedroom three faces the front with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and another skylight window.

The bathroom is the other room on this floor has been newly installed and is simply stunning. It orientates to the rear and has engineered wood flooring. The room consists of; white stand alone oval deep bathtub with wall mounted mixer taps and hand held shower attachment, white W/C, white wash hand basin with vanity cupboards under, large walk in shower with glass screen, shower attachment and rain head shower, wall mounted stainless steel heated towel rail, LED recessed spotlights, loft access and useful storage ledge.

Outside

There is a low maintenance courtyard garden at the back of the house which provides a private seating area with space for a selection of pot plants. There is private parking for one car at the back of the house next to the courtyard garden. This whole area is accessed to the side of the house through secure pin coded double wrought iron gates. This provides enormous security and privacy away from the high street. At the front of the property is the high street itself and direct access to all of the village amenities by foot, and the main bus routes to the nearby villages and towns. This home would make a perfect ‘lock up and leave’ for those wanting village high street convenience combined with a low maintenance garden and maximum security when away.
