Superb contemporary home near Uckfield


Sitting in an elevated position overlooking its own gardens and grounds to Ashdown Forest beyond, Woodlands is a superbly appointed Modernist-style contemporary family home completed in 2013.

The property, in Nursery Lane, Fairwarp, was built by a builder for his own occupation and consequently has been finished to a particularly high specification, with excellent environmental credentials.

Woodlands is also fully equipped for all modern conveniences including ethernet cabling for a faster internet connection, underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and in the bathrooms, Sky-Frame windows with remote controlled fitted blinds to the majority, recessed spot lighting throughout most of the house with dimmer switches and programmable mood lighting, high quality bathroom suites and an integral vacuuming system.

The spacious and very impressive accommodation extends to nearly 4,000sqft; the ground floor is largely open plan, the main reception area of particular note: a stunning space benefitting from an expanse of full height windows overlooking the gardens, with the ability to open completely.

To one end of the room is the kitchen, fitted with an extensive range of Pogenpohl units and integrated Siemens appliances.

An elegant curved staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor galleried landing, off which lie the four generous bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room) and a family bathroom.

The master suite is particularly impressive, comprising a bedroom, dressing room and luxury en-suite bathroom with twin basins, bath and separate shower cubicle.

There are doors opening from the landing and all but one of the bedrooms to a large, private roof terrace overlooking the gardens.

Woodlands is approached from the lane via a sweeping driveway, which also leads to the detached triple-bay garage.

The gardens and grounds complement the house beautifully.

The formal gardens are enclosed by post and rail fencing and have been recently landscaped, enhanced by outdoor lighting and being ideal for outdoor entertaining.

A large stone terrace extends along the rear of the house, leading out onto an expanse of flat lawn; steps down from the terrace lead to the heated swimming pool, adjacent to which is a pool house and pagoda.

Beyond the formal garden is a paddock and an area of bluebell woodland with stream. In all about 4.6 acres.

Guide Price £1,795,000.
