Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to introduce The Gables to the open market for the first time in many years. This is a highly attractive detached Edwardian house on the ridge of Station Road, affording exceptional far-reaching views across open countryside. As named, the house has two attractive front gables and offers generous accommodation including four double bedrooms and a modern bathroom to the first floor. The ground floor has a superb fitted kitchen to the rear and four spacious reception rooms with large sash windows, giving exceptional light. There is a garden of just under one acre with surrounding countryside views. The garden wraps delightfully around the house and is superbly planted with many fruit trees, shrubs and flowers. The large driveway provides parking for several cars and there is a two-storey garage, which could potentially be converted into a home office, as well as excellent further garden outbuildings. The property has oil fired central heating.
The Gables is in a wonderful elevated location, laid back from Station Road, in a semi-rural idyll with amazing views. However, the property is also in a village with an easy walk of approximately ¼ mile to the parish church, village hall, excellent local shop, primary school, nursery, public house, recreation ground and of course, Plumpton Railway Station (London Victoria 55 mins & London Bridge 85 mins), which borders onto Plumpton Racecourse. To the north is an easy rural drive to Wivelsfield Green, Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath, both approximately 4 miles with mainline stations and shopping centres. Lewes, to the south-east, is approximately 5 miles with its historic centre and excellent range of independent shops, 3 superstores, cafes and restaurants and many attractive period buildings.
