Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to show to the market Highfield, an older style detached house of great size with a most attractive plot over half an acre, being elevated and thus having magnificent panoramic southerly views over open fields and to the east a gate opens directly to fields with an extraordinary view back towards Lewes and the South Downs. The house has particularly spacious accommodation with four double bedrooms, including a large master with ensuite bathroom, a further second bedroom with ensuite shower room and family bathroom. The ground floor is even larger with four reception rooms and an additional kitchen/breakfast room. The sitting room is 21ft square and there is a snug living room and drawing room and a study, as well as a downstairs cloakroom, utility room and garage. The garden is magnificent and surrounds the house with an area of wood to the front adjoining the long drive and two large areas of lawn with brick patio and timber seating areas, outbuildings and a front garden. A feature of the house is the highly attractive eyebrow windows.
