Lark Rise is an impressive, five/six-bedroom family property offering almost 3,500 sq. ft of light-filled, flexible accommodation set across two floors, and a substantial wraparound garden. Access is via the reception hall with its vaulted ceiling, storage cupboard and stairway rising to the first floor, which then leads to the sociable, double aspect kitchen/ breakfast room. The kitchen benefits from an array of glossy cream handle-less cabinetry with black granite worktops, a multitude of luxury integrated appliances and a sizeable central island/breakfast bar with gas hob and recessed extractor above. The corresponding utility room has handy outdoor access, as well as ample space for appliances. The kitchen and breakfast room flow seamlessly through pocket doors into the open plan sitting and dining area, a bright, expansive space with skylights, wooden herringbone flooring, a feature fireplace and French doors to the sunny south-facing terrace and garden. A dual study, ideal for the home
worker also occupies the space. The second wing of the ground floor homes three of the properties’ five spacious bedrooms, one with a wall of built-in wardrobes and all of which enjoy peaceful views and the use of the further contemporary family bathroom.
The feature first-floor landing has a view to the floor below and branches off onto the two generous bedroom suites, both benefitting from large dressing rooms and well-appointed en suite bathrooms, whilst a further adaptable skylit bedroom/office completes the floor. The two-storey detached annexe comprises triple garages as well as a ground floor garden room. On the first floor is a comfortable
bedroom with built-in wardrobes, a chic modern kitchen, large sitting room and a contemporary bathroom.
Parking is plentiful, with the detached annexe giving access to triple garages and a sweeping gravelled driveway with five bar gates leading up to the home and annexe. The private wraparound garden is expertly landscaped, with the rear garden enjoying the warm southern aspect overlooking picturesque countryside. A plethora of established evergreen trees and willows intersperse the abundance of manicured level lawn, as well as a wide range of neat and well-stocked flowerbeds adding vibrancy, and a traditional Well adding character. Two interlinked paved terraces offer the ideal spots to dine and lounge al fresco, whilst a large greenhouse and garden shed sit further.
Lark Rise sits in a peaceful, rural setting in the village of Golden Cross with easy access to neighbouring East Hoathly and Chiddingly, offering various village shops, amenities and public houses. There is also convenient access to the old market town of Hailsham, with its wide range of facilities including supermarkets, shops, public houses, eateries, schools, doctor’s surgeries and country parks.
