4 Bed Other  Under-Offer  Chailey Lane  Newick  Lewes  East Sussex  BN8   - £950,000

Under Offer
THE PROPERTY A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial property suitable for updating or possibly replacement, set on a circa 6.5 acre plot that includes a 5.75 acre paddock, in a rural location with lovely countryside views.

An individual detached chalet bungalow, understood to have been built in around 1963 but with subsequent extensions to add a bedroom at first floor level and two bedrooms and a shower room in a single storey side extension.

The property offers four bedrooms, two large reception rooms, a small study area, bathroom, shower room, a kitchen with Aga and a rear lobby/utility room. It benefits from oil heating and double glazing but is now in need of some updating. Outside there is a single garage, a large parking area and a wooden shed/workshop.

The building sits within a garden area of about 0.75 acres, behind and to the side is a single paddock of circa 5.75 acres with a separate field gate access to the lane. Views to the front are over fields towards the South Downs and at the rear over your own land.

It is considered that there may be scope for further enlargement of the property or perhaps replacement with a new dwelling, subject to the necessary consents. Interested parties should make their own further enquiries in this respect.


THE LOCATION Quineys is situated on the southern edge of Newick, about a mile from the village centre. Newick straddles the A272 about 7 miles to the east of Haywards Heath and 6 miles to the west of Uckfield, with the County Town of Lewes about 7 miles to the south.

This popular village has two general stores, pharmacy, butchers, chemists, bakery, Post Office, hairdressers, beauty parlour, three public houses, restaurants, garage, health centre, village hall and a primary school. Secondary schools are available in the surrounding towns, plus the village of Ringmer, and there are a host of private schools in the area. Similarly each surrounding town has a rail station, with Haywards Heath being the most popular due to its journey time to London Victoria from only 43 minutes and the greater frequency of trains.

There are a number of golf courses in the area and just to the north is the circa 6,500 acres of the Ashdown Forest, the largest free public access open space in the south-east and an excellent place for walking, cycling and horse riding (the latter by permit). The Ashdown Forest is the home of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends, as immortalised in the books of A.A. Milne.
