A large and versatile five bedroom detached family home spanning over 3,200 sq ft, located in the extremely desirable village of Newick. The house sits on a generous plot and comprises of; five double bedrooms, three bath and shower rooms (2 en-suite), living room, fully fitted kitchen, dining / family room, study / playroom, family / dining room, downstairs cloakroom, private off road parking for several vehicles, summer house, shed with power and light, double garage and a private flat rear garden.
The house is entered by a large covered entrance canopy into the spacious hallway. There is a downstairs cloakroom directly on the right with a window to the front, and a WC and wash hand basin. The hallway is a large space where all of the downstairs rooms radiate from. To the left of the hallway is the main living room. This fantastic large room is double aspect and measures 24ft x 13ft. The room is very light and has double glazed patio doors and glazed windows either side providing views and access to the rear terrace and rear garden beyond. The room also has a brick built working open fireplace which creates a wonderful focal point to the room. The living room is also large enough for a variety of living room furniture. Through double French doors from the living room can be found the Family/ Dining room which has wooden flooring, two windows facing the rear and glazed double doors leading onto the rear terrace. This room is extremely multi-functional in its use, and is large enough to accommodate a wide variety of furniture to serve its purpose. There is a door from this room which leads back into the hallway thereby enabling a circular motion around the ground floor. Opposite the Family / Dining room is the Study / Playroom. This again is a very versatile room with two windows facing the front and could also serve the purpose of a snug as well if desired.
The kitchen and dining / family room face the rear of the house. The kitchen has a window overlooking the rear garden and consists of; a large range of wall and base soft close units, work surfaces, one and a half bowl sink and drainer unit, light grey floor tiles and many integrated appliances including; dishwasher, induction hob with stainless steel cooker hood over, double oven, large fridge and freezer and microwave. The kitchen is open with the Dining / Family Room which measures 15ft x 10ft, and has a window facing the rear and a glazed door leading onto the rear terrace. This room would most likely be used as a dining space, however it also offers the versatility of being used as a family space with sofas, chairs, and perhaps even a Television.
The utility room is located through a door from the Dining / Family room, has a glazed door opening out onto the rear terrace and consists of; wall and base units, work surfaces, one and a half bowl sink and drainer unit, plumbing and space for a washing machine, and space for a dryer. There is an internal door from the utility room which leads into the large double garage which measures 21ft x 16ft and houses the boiler. It has power and light with two independent up and over doors, and a useful loft. The garage provides parking for two vehicles and plentiful storage. It also has the potential to become another large reception room (subject to necessary planning) with access from either the Study / Playroom or the Dining / Family Room. It could also become a self-contained annexe with the utility room perhaps becoming the kitchen and the Dining/Family room becoming a bedroom. This completes the ground floor accommodation.
Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor landing where five bedrooms, three bath and shower rooms (two are en-suite), and an airing cupboard housing the large hot water tank can be found. The master bedroom measures 15ft x 13ft and has two windows facing the rear garden and affords wonderful elevated far reaching views over to Sheffield Park and Fletching. The room has a dressing area with built in ‘his and hers’ wardrobes and drawers. The en-suite bathroom is large and consists of; tiled floor and tiled walls, frosted window to the rear, chrome heated towel rail, white WC, white circular wash hand basin with storage cupboards under, white panelled bath and walk in shower with glass screen.
Bedroom 2 measures 15ft x 13ft, and has two windows which face the front of the house and built in triple wardrobes. There is a useful room directly off this bedroom which measures 9ft x 8ft and could be used as a walk in dressing room, study or even a nursery if desired. The en-suite bathroom to this bedroom consists of; part tiled walls, tiled flooring, large fitted mirror, heated towel rail, white wash hand basin inset into useful storage ledging with storage cupboards and drawers underneath, white WC and white panelled bath. Bedroom 3 is again a large double measuring 14ft x 12ft which faces the rear garden and the wonderful views, and has built in wardrobes. Bedroom 4 has two windows which face the front garden and driveway and has a large storage cupboard. Bedroom 5, although the smallest bedroom, is still a good sized double which measures 12ft x 10ft and has a built in double wardrobe.
The family shower room has a frosted window to the rear and consists of; tiled flooring and walls, radiator with heated towel rail above, white WC, white wash hand basin, and a walk in shower cubicle. This completes the first floor accommodation.
The front of the house consists of a large tarmac driveway which provides fantastic parking for about six cars comfortably and eight at a push. There is a lawned area to the left (as you look at the house) which is flanked by mature shrubs and trees. There is high hedging which runs the entire length of each boundary in the front garden, and at the front which provides highly effective screening from the road. There is side access to the rear garden either side of the house. There is a host of outside lights dotted all around the outside of the house which provides wonderful illumination at night.
The rear garden is simply gorgeous and very private. There is a paved terrace which extends the entire width of the plot. The terrace area is elevated with wonderful views over open woodland and countryside beyond, and is large enough to accommodate a variety of outside seating.
There is a sloped paved pathway which meanders down to the lower section of the garden. Here can be found a large flat grassed area which is perfect for children to play, and further outside seating to be positioned if desired. There is a small area at the very bottom of the garden perfect for a compost heap which is hidden away by hedges. The rest of this section of the garden is bordered by smart high hedges, intertwined with flower and shrub borders and mature trees. The garden is low maintenance in its upkeep, and is superbly quiet (you are not aware of the main road at all) and wonderfully private.
On this lower section of the garden is a summer house adjoined to a wooden shed. The shed has power and light. Although extremely useful now, it could provide further use if there was a desire to upgrade to an outside home office in the future, or indeed provide use as a gym or even a games room. The summer house has power and is perfect to enjoy this space in the warmer months. It could also serve the purpose as a home office or snug/teenage den if desired. There is an outside tap, outside power and space to the side of the house for bins.
From the house, the high street of Newick is a mere few minutes 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 Ofstead) 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 village hall plays host to many of those clubs and societies meets and social events. The village’s own amateur dramatic society (NADS) also put on its productions at the village hall. 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, pavillion and licenced bar and adjacent childrens playgorund 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.
The village is surrounded by incredible countryside and within minutes you are able to walk through this countryside on a variety of different footpaths. Although it may seem as if Newick is quite remote, it is only 10 -15 minutes drive to the towns of Haywards Heath and Uckfield and 20 minutes to Burgess Hill and Lewes, all of which have mainline train links to London and Brighton each with an array of different shops, restaurants and nightlife.
