A stunning five bedroom, five bathroom family home, on a 3.5 acre plot in this quiet tucked away location. Extended and modernised throughout, by the current owners, this is house that has to be seen to fully appreciate the versatile accommodation on offer.

Rowland Gorringe is delighted to be marketing this five bedroom detached home, situated on the edge of the villages of Halland and Laughton and measuring over 3700 square feet. Approached via a quiet lane, you turn into the gated entrance and pull onto the large gravelled driveway which has space to park a large number of vehicles and includes a large, triple bay garage. Making your way through the main entrance you enter into a hallway, where straight ahead is the main reception room. This is a stunning room with a large brick fireplace housing a large wood-burning stove, which runs the hot water. There are double doors on one side to a courtyard and on the other into the kitchen diner. With bi-fold doors opening out onto the sandstone patio, the kitchen diner is an impressive room. This room was added by the current owners during major extension works and is the central hub of this home, with a fully fitted kitchen at one end and at the other a living area, looking out over the garden and paddocks beyond. Finishing off this side of the house is a large study, ideal for home working, a second reception room and a utility room. In our opinion, this area of the house could be reconfigured in order to create a self contained annex.

On the opposite side of the house you find four of the five bedrooms. The master bedroom at the far end of the wing is a large double with walk in wardrobe, fitted wardrobes, en-suite bathrooms and double doors opening onto the rear garden. There are three further bedrooms all with en-suites, two looking out to the front and a fourth looking out onto the rear garden and paddocks beyond. Upstairs, there is a fifth double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and balcony which gives far reaching views over the paddock and surrounding countryside.

Outside, you have a lovely wrap around formal garden, with large terraces, which are real sun traps tactically position to make the most of the sun. Beyond the lovely formal gardens is the paddock, which could easily be used for equestrian purposes.

Location: The property is situated on the outskirts of the highly sought after village of Laughton which provides a post office/general store, pre-school, primary school, church and public house. Within a short drive of the historical county town of Lewes with its boutique shops, restaurants and mainline railway service to London Bridge. Almost equidistant is the town of Uckfield with its comprehensive range of shopping facilities and railway station.

Directions: From our office in Uckfield High Street turn right at the traffic lights at Boots until reaching the A22. Turn south onto the A22 until reaching the hamlet of Halland. Turn right at the main roundabout and proceed for approximately a couple of miles turning left into Shortgate Lane. Proceed along Shortgate Lane and the property will be found on the left hand side
