Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This former lodge house is situated at the entrance to the impressive Holmstead Manor estate, surrounded by idyllic countryside and with beautiful views over farmland and its own gardens. The Victorian property offers much charm and character, built in the traditional West Sussex vernacular with partially tile-hung elevations and period features throughout such as solid wooden panel doors and lintels and ornate original fireplaces. Though the property has been modernised and is well presented throughout, it may benefit from some further cosmetic improvements to bring it up to today's accepted standards.

Offering over 1300 sq ft of living space there are three reception areas on the ground floor: a sitting room, separate dining room with parquet flooring and an additional informal dining area within the farmhouse-style kitchen. In addition there is a utility area and shower room on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are three good size double bedrooms and a fourth single bedroom, plus a family bathroom. Some of the bedrooms also have feature fireplaces and all enjoy pleasant green views.


The property is situated at the turning into the private driveway of Holmstead Manor. Parking is by agreement with Holmsted Manor.

From the gardens there are lovely views over the idyllic surrounding countryside. The gardens also include lawned areas, vegetable gardens, areas to sit and take in the views and beds of mature planting, plus a greenhouse and timber shed.


Cuckfield village has excellent access to the surrounding countryside of the High Weald AONB plus a good range of amenities including a convenience store/Post Office, petrol station, medical centre, several public houses, restaurants and a hotel with spa. More comprehensive facilities may be found in Haywards Heath with its wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and modern leisure centre.
