The Old School House is A handsome twin bay fronted 4 bedroom Victorian detached house built of brick with rendered elevations in approximately 1863 having been substantially extended and improved over recent years and now benefiting from a LARGE SELF CONTAINED ANNEXE.
Although the property has been extensively upgraded, much of the original character remains such as open fireplaces, panelled doors, picture and dado rails and stripped floors. The property is located in the ever-popular Park Road Conservation area within easy reach of both Burgess Hill town centre and mainline railway station.
The accommodation includes a twin pillared large entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor.

Opposite the sitting room, you have the dining room with a square bay window and cast-iron fireplace. An inner hallway opens into the kitchen/breakfast/family room.
