A Beautifully Presented Refurbished Property with the 'Wow' Factor In Abundance Offering Stunning Accommodation Overlooking Landscaped Gardens of About 1.25 Acres in a Delightful Semi-Rural Setting

What The Vendor Says - This property previously belonged to my parents, says the current owner of Birchwood House, and I often imagined how it could be completely transformed. When they decided to move I saw it as an opportunity to turn my daydream into reality and create a stunning home relevant to modern day living.
"Since then, I have completely remodeled and refurbished this single storey 4 bedroom residence and finished it to an incredibly high standard. I have changed just about everything you can imagine! The property is unrecognizable from what it was and has been extended and refurbished, now offering spacious luxury living.
The gardens are a particular feature, the owner continues, and are predominantly south facing, sloping away from the property. There is a beautiful sun terrace which wraps around the house, perfect for entertaining, and there are lawns and some specimen trees. The property is very secluded from the lane with a long driveway, and also boasts a small paddock area.
"The location of the property too has much to offer, in the heart of this pretty Downland village with a vibrant sense of community. Henfield is a bustling village in a very convenient location for Brighton, says the owner, and lies within easy reach of the A23 giving fast access to Gatwick. The village High Street has a variety of shops and friendly inns, and The South Downs Link is only a couple of minutes drive away, offering wonderful walks or cycling routes. The South Downs National Park is on our doorstep and we are also close to Hickstead for equestrian interests.

Best thing about the grounds: The garden terrace gets the sun all day so is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed barbecue with friends or a glass of wine on a summers evening.

What I will miss most: I will miss the wonderful location, which is very peaceful being in a lovely semi-rural setting.

Favourite room: My favourite rooms have to be the amazing open plan reception room and the kitchen which both have bi-fold doors opening out to the sun terrace and gardens.

Memorable event: There are lots of memories from my parents living here, but creating a stunning home that started with a few sketches and ideas is something I will never forget.

Situation - The property is quietly situated in a delightful rural setting on the outskirts of Henfield village which has a vibrant community with a High Street of shops and inns together with churches, library, leisure centre, modern medical centre and primary school. Mainline stations are available at Hassocks, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and Brighton, whilst the A24 and A23 are easily accessible giving access to the M23 and Gatwick Airport. There are a number of popular private schools within easy reach such as Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill School For Girls and Lancing College. Theatres are available at Brighton and Chichester whilst there are excellent sporting and recreational facilities in the area including golf at Singing Hills, the Dyke and Mannings Heath, show jumping at Hickstead, racing at Goodwood, Brighton, Plumpton and Fontwell, whilst the South Downs National Park provides many miles of beautiful walks and bridle paths. The coast is about 8 miles distant.

What The Agent Says - "It is rare to find somebody who renovates to such an exacting standard. From the moment you drive through the electric gates you just know that Birchwood House is something quite special and when you stand inside looking over the gardens through wide bi-fold doors you really have found a piece of perfection!"

Step Inside - An entrance door with obscured side-panel leads into the Entrance Hall with limed oak flooring and underfloor heating. From here glazed double doors with side-panels lead to the Dining Room which is double aspect facing south and west with bi-fold doors, underfloor heating and recessed lighting again with the same flooring which also extends throughout the kitchen and reception room which have with their own zones for underfloor heating.

From the Kitchen wide bi-fold doors give a superb view over the terrace and garden. There are also solar velux windows which are remote controlled. Off the kitchen there is a Utility Room with sink unit, cupboards, 'Siemens' washer/dryer and further appliance space.

The amazing Reception Room has three sets of bi-fold doors facing south and west giving views over the terrace and sweeping lawns, there are two feature chandeliers.
