Rozel is an attractive and deceptively spacious detached period home dating back to the early 1900s and having much character, situated a mile from the station and shops of East Grinstead with lovely countryside on the doorstep. The double-fronted property has been modernised but benefits from many excellent original features, including imposing mahogany doors, hardwood floors, a clocktower over the garage and feature bay windows in the two formal reception rooms. Over the years the house has been subject to a number of improvements, most notably a family room extension to the rear in 2015, a new roof and the installation of bespoke cabinetry and wardrobes. The house is presented in excellent decorative order throughout and offers the space and versatility to make an ideal family home with a best-of-both-worlds setting.

The accommodation is of generous proportions throughout and extends to over 2700 sq ft across three floors, with a useful cellar space for storage on the lower basement level. On the ground floor, an entrance hallway leads to the main accommodation, with spacious reception rooms to either side, a country-style kitchen with space for a breakfast table and a ground floor shower room. The kitchen leads to the extended accommodation to the rear, which includes a utility room, workshop/study and fabulous family room with bifold doors opening to the garden.

The property was originally five bedrooms but the owners have since used one of the bedrooms as a dressing room with then en suite bathroom. The doorway is still in place for the fifth bedroom so this could be easily changed back. There are a further three bedrooms, including one with an east-facing balcony, and a family bathroom.


The attractive gardens surround the property and extend to about 1 acre, comprising manicured mostly level lawns and wildflower meadow, attractive flowerbeds stocked with a variety of bedding plants, mature trees of various species and an Indian sandstone terrace providing ample space for outdoor entertaining. The property is accessed by a generous driveway with private off-road parking for a number of vehicles, leading to a detached double garage with boarded storage above and an electric door. Further outbuildings include a brick and glazed greenhouse, a workshop/stable, tool shed and two sheds with an adjacent log store.


The property is situated on a quiet road surrounded by similar detached homes just 1 mile to the south-west of East Grinstead town. The station and shops are within easy reach and walking distance and offer plenty to satisfy day-to-day shopping and commuting.

The area is renowned for its excellent walking and riding country with Ashdown Forest having many excellent trails, and further leisure pursuits available such as golf at Royal Ashdown and Forest Row, sailing at Bough Beech and the south coast and racing at Lingfield Park, Epsom and Goodwood.
