A deceptively spacious detached family home, offering three bedrooms, bathroom, open plan sitting/dining room, hallway and kitchen, all in need of updating and offering considerable further scope, with parking and a garage. NO CHAIN. EPC Rating D.
On the market for the first time since it was built, this detached family home was built in the 1970s, and has features atypical of the era, such as parquet flooring and sandstone surround by the fireplace.
Presenting brick and tile hung elevations with angled roofline, the property has been improved with modern double glazing, and an updated boiler in the attic, but otherwise now requires cosmetic modernisation throughout.
The accommodation is surprisingly generous, with an enclosed front porch leading to a large reception hall, enjoying a window to side, built in cupboard and stairs to the first floor, and a door to the cloakroom, comprising a WC and basin.
The kitchen is a dual aspect room with an array of cupboards and drawers to three sides and an access panel to the dining room. There is an integrated one and a half bowl sink with drainer and gas hob, electric oven and dishwasher, and space for further appliances.
A door from the hallway leads into the open plan living/dining room is a long room to the rear of the property, enjoying a triple aspect with windows to side and rear, and sliding glass doors to the other side patio. The sitting area enjoys a fireplace with sandstone surround and currently housing a gas fireplace.
A further door leads back to the hallway, and it is considered this area could be partitioned to form an enclosed office area if required.
The first floor comprises a small landing with access to the attic (not inspected). There are three bedrooms, all with built in cupboards, forming two double bedrooms one with a superb dual aspect and outlook over houses to the countryside beyond, and a further large single room with wonderful views over the road to fields opposite.
The bathroom is again very generous, comprising a bath with shower over, WC and basin, part tiled walls and a further storage cupboard.
Outside, there is a shared driveway accessing the private parking for both Copthorne and White Timbers, the neighbouring property. There is a turning area to one side of the newly erected car port belonging to White Timbers, and access to the rear of Copthorne to the single garage and additional parking space.
The gardens are then to the front and side, with the front garden mainly laid to lawn with fence and flowerbed borders, with the side garden enjoying a large paved patio, with fence and flowerbed borders, and a pedestrian access to the garage.
The property is located on Wellbrook Hill, just beyond in Berkeley Road, approximately 1 mile from the 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street. Facilities in the village include a small supermarket with post office, butcher, baker, pharmacy, florist, greengrocers and deli as well as GP surgery, dentist and hairdressers. There are also a couple of cafes and Period Inns, including the renowned Middle House Hotel. There are pretty churches of various denominations, a flourishing primary school and the well regarded Mayfield School secondary school.
