SOLD: BUILD YOUR OWN GRAND DESIGN! - A wonderful and seldom found opportunity to build your own grand design in a private lane. The site extends to circa 2 acres and has planning permission (ref: WD/2019/0461/F) for a replacement dwelling with a detached triple bay garage.
Currently the property comprises an architect designed bungalow built in the 1970's. The proposal is to create a stunning, contemporary build extending to approximately 11000 square feet (including outbuildings) with predominately glazed elevations, to take full advantage of the countryside setting, under a mono-pitch roof. The accommodation will comprise a entrance lobby and hall with a lift, open-plan family room, dining room and kitchen across the rear with sliding doors, laundry/utility room, boot room, formal dining room, home office/comms/gym, galley/showcase and library/gallery to the ground floor. The first floor will provide a master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe/dressing room, guest suite with en-suite and four further bedrooms all of which are en-suite.
The property sits centrally within its 2 acre plot screened by light woodland, with the proposal to create an 'in-out' driveway, the remainder laid to lawn, interspersed by mature trees.
Horney Common offers convenient access via the A22 to all of the surrounding towns and villages. The nearest town is Uckfield with an extensive range of shopping facilities, supermarkets, cinema, bus depot and mainline rail station. Gatwick airport is approximately 20 miles distant (45 minutes by car). The area provides excellent leisure facilities including the neighbouring Ashdown Forest with its 6000 acres of heathland providing beautiful local scenery and walks. There is also the East Sussex National Spa and Golf resort together with a number of coastal resorts including Brighton and Eastbourne. At the end of the lane there is a bus route served by Worth School and the area caters for all age groups including Nutley Primary School and Uckfield Community College.
