A rarely available well presented character 3/4 bedroom attached Villa situated within a large plot at the end of a long private driveway that serves only one other property.
‘Mount Cottage’ we believe is one of the oldest properties in Burgess Hill dating in part from the 16th century, with later additions in the 1970’s, traditionally built of brick with rendered and timber elevations beneath a slate tiled roof. The current owner has been in residence since 1993.
The long private driveway is situated directly off ‘London Road’ centrally located for easy access to the town centre, both railway stations and local schools. The town of Haywards Heath and access to the motorway network are both within a short drive.
The spacious accommodation comprises an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor with recess beneath and door opening to the west facing rear patio. The dual aspect living room also has double doors opening to the rear garden with folding doors opening to a dual aspect dining room.
To the opposite side of the hallway is a particularly warm and cosy dual aspect sitting room with a door to the west facing rear patio, an open fireplace, beamed ceiling and patterned tiled floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a good range of pine cupboards and includes an 8 ring gas range cooker. Exposed brick pillar, a pine wall, door to the front aspect and a feature secondary cast iron staircase to the first floor.
The primary staircase leads from the hallway to the main landing. The master bedroom is dual aspect and there are 3 further bedrooms and a bathroom fitted with a white suite. Bedroom 2 is accessed via bedroom 4 and also leads to a smaller landing (which can be accessed from the secondary staircase) and a shower room refitted with a white suite.
Outside the property is approached via a long private driveway. A five bar gate opens to the courtyard style front garden which is laid to crazy paving with steps to the front door and to the kitchen/breakfast room door. There is also a large useful cellar with restricted head height ideal for storage with a radiator and space for a tumble dryer.
To the side of the house a pebblestone driveway leads to the rear of the property providing ample parking. The generous west facing rear garden is a particular feature measuring 100’ x 60’. A full width raised patio with brick barbecue has 2 sets of steps flanked by lanterns leading to the remainder of the garden which is laid to a large expanse of lawn. The whole is surrounded by an array of colourful well stocked borders. Timber shed & greenhouse.
The property benefits from gas fired central heating (the boiler is located in the cellar), mains electricity and drainage.
