Stanley House is one of Burgess Hill's finest homes, situated on a popular and much desired road of similar houses leading from the eastern edge of St John's Park and within walking distance of the high street and train station. The handsome detached house was constructed in 1881 and is a fine example of Victorian architecture, featuring an attractive double-fronted exterior and a wealth of character features including a traditional chequered tiled entrance hall, cast iron fireplaces, decorative coving and sash windows. These classically Victorian elements have been sympathetically incorporated into a contemporary décor scheme, which gave new life to the home following a total refurbishment in 2020. The house has been renovated to a high standard, with no expense spared and a fabulous level of attention to detail throughout.

The substantial accommodation is generous proportioned over two well-planned floors, with the total footprint of the home extending to about 3278 sq ft. The ground floor is ideally laid out for entertaining, featuring two formal reception rooms at the front on either side of the entrance hallway, and a large open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear which opens to the rear terrace. There is also a cloakroom with WC, a boot room, utility room and excellent storage.

Upstairs there are five spacious bedrooms: a principal bedroom to the rear with access to a private terrace overlooking the garden and an en suite bathroom; a further en suite guest bedroom to the front of the house; three further bedrooms (both double size); and a well-appointed bath/shower room.


The south-facing rear garden is an oasis of calm, featuring a raised paved terrace spanning the back of the house which provides the ideal space for dining outside in the warmer months. Mature trees and hedges enclose a level lawn, with a number of well-stocked flowerbeds and bordered providing additional colour and interest. Within the garden there is a useful detached garden studio which makes a fantastic home office. The front of the house has excellent kerb appeal, its pleasingly symmetrical elevations fronted by herbaceous borders and hedges enclosing the gravel driveway where there is ample off-street parking. An attached double garage and undercroft storage area is tucked to one side in the modern extension.


The charming town of Burgess Hill is located close to the border of East Sussex, on the edge of the South Downs National Park. The town offers a wide range of amenities and leisure facilities including the Martlets Shopping Centre and a Waitrose Supermarket. For schools, Burgess Hill and nearby Haywards Heath offer a good number of primary and secondary schools. The area has good private schools such as Burgess Hill School for Girls, Hurstpierpoint College, Ardingly College, Great Walstead and Brighton College, all within driving distance. By car, Brighton seafront, Gatwick and Heathrow airports and London are accessible via the A23/M23 and M25.
