A FORMER ammunitions factory has been converted into a new family home and put up for sale.

The property in Warninglid, near Haywards Heath, has been put on the market with a guide price of £1.25 million.

Known as The Armoury, the property is thought to date back to the 1930s and was used a squash court before its conversion into a home.

Situated on the outskirts of the village, this unique house has been converted to create a family home with exposed brick work, concrete wall finishes and commercial-grade laminate flooring.

In the main house, all three bedrooms are on the ground floor with the principal bedroom accompanied from an en suite shower room.

The Argus:

While the first floor is entirely open plan with natural light by way of a huge glass lantern extending across the majority of the roof and an expanse of bi-fold windows.

The first floor offers a stylish modern living area with vast rural views and the space to create various seating, dining and work areas.

In addition to bathroom suites and a bespoke staircase, the house is complemented by a single-storey former stable building that is currently used as a office with kitchenette and open storage barn.

This building has planning permission for conversion into a two-bedroom annexe or guest suite, which would offer ancillary accommodation.

Set in approximately 0.76 acres of grounds, The Armoury is accessible via a private driveway which leads to a walled parking area ahead of garaging that offers two parking bays and a workshop which contains the utilities for the house.

The property’s garden is mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by mature hedgerows and trees, with a small kitchen garden and some fruit trees.

Rohan Vines, head of residential sales at Savills in Haywards Heath, whose team are handling the sale, said: “The semi-rural location of The Armoury is one that will tick a lot of boxes for potential buyers but the living space that has been created as a result of this conversion only enhances its appeal.

"What the owners have achieved with the open plan first floor is simply extraordinary. It is truly unique.”
