A well presented five bedroom, two bathroom detached family home. This versatile house is set over three floors, spans over 1,700 sq ft and is situated in the desirable development of New Heritage Way in North Chailey. The houses accommodation comprises in short of; five bedrooms (or four bedrooms and an office), one en-suite shower room, family bathroom, fully fitted kitchen/diner with integrated appliances, sitting room, and a conservatory. There is a west facing private garden and a detached double garage providing parking for two vehicles and a further two parking spaces infront of the garage.
You enter the house through the main front door, and into a hallway with the stairs directly infront. To the right is the downstairs cloakroom with W/C and wash hand basin. To the left of the hallway is the main sitting room. This is a large double aspect room which measures 17’10 x 10’9 and can comfortably accommodate a range of sitting room furniture. There are double French patio doors from the sitting room which open directly out onto the rear garden terrace. The kitchen / diner is another light room, again being double aspect with double French patio doors leading into the conservatory. The kitchen comprises of; tiled flooring, a wide range of wooden wall and base units which provide a large amount of storage, work surface space, stainless steel sink and drainer. There is a range of integrated appliances which include; five ring gas hob with stainless steel extractor above, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The room is large enough for a dining table and chairs, and has provided my clients over the years with a wonderful sociable space for family and friends alike.
The final room on this floor is the conservatory, which is accessed from the kitchen / diner. The conservatory has a door to one side and a sliding door to the other. Because the conservatory faces West and has heating, it makes for a perfect year round useable room which could be used as a playroom, snug or hobby room.
Back into the hallway can be found a useful under stairs cupboard. The stairs rise to the first floor with a window which floods the stairway with a large amount of natural daylight.
Up on the first floor can be found the master bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and two bedrooms (one likely to be used as an office).
The master bedroom measures 11’11’ x 10’9 ft and overlooks the rear garden. The en-suite shower room comprises of; window to the front, white WC, white wash hand basin and a large walk in shower cubicle. Next to the master bedroom can be found the family bathroom which also faces the front and comprises of; white WC, white wash hand basin and white panelled bath with shower over. Bedroom 5 is located next to the family bathroom, and as it is the smallest bedroom in the house, would make for an ideal home office unless needed as a bedroom. Bedroom 2 is also a good sized double which measures 10’10 x 9’5 ft and faces onto the rear garden.
Stairs rise from the first floor landing to the second floor landing which has two large velux windows facing the front and rear. These flood the stairwell and landing with a large amount of natural daylight. The second floor has two double bedrooms (both with high ceilings) and a large landing which provide an extremely versatile and flexible use of space depending on how you wanted to live. The landing in between these bedrooms could be used for general storage or as a second office/study area. It even has the potential (as the window and radiator are already in situ and the plumbing for the family bathroom directly below) to become an en-suite shower room to one of these bedrooms. This could be completed without a huge amount of cost or upheaval. This would then mean that the other bedroom could become a dressing room or even a living room. This would provide potentially either an entire top floor master suite, or a self-contained area for an older relative or teenager/twenty something wanting their space away from the main household. This top floor in its simplest form offers two double aspect excellent sized double bedrooms.
This completes the internal accommodation.
Outside to the front of the house is a small front lawn to the right of the double garage and shrub and flower boarders infront of the house itself. There is a block paved driveway providing parking infront of the detached double garage for two vehicles.
The detached double garage is enormous measuring 18ft x 18ft, and is large enough to park two vehicles inside. It has full power and light, and my clients have recently installed an EV charging point inside the garage. There is a side door leading onto the rear garden, and two up and over doors which lead directly onto the driveway. The garage has a high pitched tiled roof and it therefore provides not only great storage but also fantastic potential to convert into a home office, gym, studio or even a two storey self contained annexe (subject to the necessary planning consents).
There is gated side access to the private West facing rear garden. The outside rear terrace is paved and is large enough for a variety of outside seating. There is also a raised decking area where further seating can be positioned. The garden is laid to lawn with mature tree, shrub and flower borders all enclosed by close board wooden fending.
New Heritage Way
New Heritage Way is a modern residential development situated in a delightful rural position on the northern edge of Chailey Common. The location of the house itself is extremely quiet, and it is tucked towards the back of the development with three other houses at the end of a children friendly cul de sac. There is a childrens playground the other end of the road to the property making this a perfect family home. New Heritage Way has a large swathe of woodland surrounding it which has a footpath running through it, making it perfect for dog owners too.
The house is located within a few minutes walk of Red House Common which is the largest of the Chailey commons and has stunning views over the Sussex countryside. There are a plethora of different public footpaths which radiate from around the property making this property perfect for those with children, dogs or simply a love for walking.
Chailey Common is one of the largest heathland commons in the South of England, covering 450 acres and was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 1966. It has also been made a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its heathland plants and diverse insect and bird communities.
Chailey Common was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and was used over a long period of time by local people for cutting wood and bracken for fuel and grazing livestock. The current common is split into five sections; Memorial Common, Pound Common, Romany Ridge Common, Red House Common and Lane End Common to the north which is detached from the rest lying east of the A275 and north of the minor road to Fletching. Access is not open though the public can use the existing tracks and footpaths through each of the commons.
To have direct access to this much open space walkable directly from your own doorstep is very rare and makes this property extremely unique in its location.
Chailey is a village and parish in the Lewes District. The parish consists of the settlements; South Chailey, South Street, Chailey and North Chailey.

Also in Chailey there is a very good historic pub called The Five Bells (2.2 miles away) which serves local ales and offering a great varied food menu. It is an old coaching house dating back many hundred of years. It has everything you could wish for in a country pub, including; a log fire, cosy bar area, delightful gardens and a well equipped restaurant.

All of these towns have mainline train links to London and Brighton, each with an array of different shops, restaurants and nightlife.
From the property the larger village of Newick is 2miles away (6 minute drive or 45 minute walk). Newick is a wonderful quintessential Sussex village. It has three thriving village pubs – The Crown, The Bull and The Royal Oak. The well renowned Newick Tandoori brings diners from far and wide to dine in the village’s own Indian restaurant and takeaway. The village Cottage Bakery serves fantastic freshly cooked bread in their historic original bread oven on site, and savoury and sweet treats. Bob Alderman butchers serves a variety of extremely good quality very locally sourced cuts of meat. The Pantry coffee shop offers great coffee and lovely lunches including homemade cakes and savoury bites. The Pantry is a great place to meet friends and family in the day. The village also has two well stocked stores selling most items that you would need. One of these shops doubles up as the village post office. The village even has its own doctors surgery and a Lloyds Pharmacy.
The residents of Newick are a fantastic mix of ages with the village school and pre-school (both rated Outstanding by Ofsted) bringing in young families through to the retired. Even though the village may be small in its number of residents, it packs a huge punch with the amount of clubs and societies that are on offer for all ages. The annual Newick Bonfire night is extremely well regarded and thousands of people from all around Sussex flock to this event year on year. The village has strong rugby and cricket teams and as such sport runs through the veins of the village. The sports playing field with its cricket, rugby and football pitches, pavilion and bar and adjacent children’s playground is a hive of activity throughout the year as it plays host to many a sporting activity or social event, particularly on a summers Friday evening when the children have cricket lessons and the parents meet to picnic and sip prosecco.
