Property description

Originally the private apartments of Lord Huth, this richly elegant ground floor apartment gives the owner an enhanced home in this extremely sought after retirement village. It has its own private entrance hall from the courtyard and large ornate windows overlooking the grounds surrounding the Holy Cross Priory. Many of the original features of this apartment, built in 1866, have been retained including a beautiful carved stone fireplace in the hallway and oak doors with ornate fretwork embellishment. There are also mullion windows with some small areas of stained glass towards the high ceilings and deep cornicing with ceiling roses. In addition, the apartment has deep oak skirtings throughout and one of the original gun safes situated in the lounge is an ideal place to make a wine cellar! The entrance hallway from the courtyard is only for the resident of this apartment but does also link through to other reception rooms in The Priory. There is also a hidden stone staircase to the first floor where the guest apartment is located which is very convenient for visitors.

The entrance hall is long and adorned with two glass chandeliers, the fireplace mentioned earlier and a range of floor to ceiling display and bookshelves. The Drawing Room is a good square room with tall mullion windows. There are two of the original oak doors, one of which hides the secure gun safe in which there is shelved storage space and the other is a utility cupboard housing the boiler and storage. The Dining Room is very light and has the most magnificent windows. The Kitchen is large enough to have a small table and chairs in and is fitted with a good range of units which include a Bosch hob and extractor, dishwasher, fridge / freezer and eye level oven. Bedroom 2 is currently used as a Study and has a cosy feel as it has a lower false ceiling in one section and a tall mullion window. The main bedroom is a lovely spacious room with a duck's nest fireplace, mullion window, range of built-in wardrobes and en suite shower room. Both bathrooms are fitted with disability access showers, handrails, w.c., wash basin and emergency cords.

Information: The flat has electric central heating via radiators. All curtains, blinds and light fittings are included in the sale price. Lease: 125 years from 2012. Wardens on call 24 hours. 1 1/2 hours housekeeping included in the services charges approximately £6,000 per annum (tbc) which are payable on 1st April and 1st October each year. Regular wellness checks are carried out by the staff for residents.

Holy Cross Retirement Village offers a varied programme of activities for the residents and visitors. There is a beautiful dining room available, a drawing room for larger gatherings and many activities including a monthly craft fair, yoga and bridge are held in a large reception room. There are plenty of patios and in particular the sun terrace which overlooks the bowling green, to enjoy the fresh air. If you prefer a walk, the grounds of Possingworth Park extend around the village and into woodland where there is a lake. If, in time, more extensive nursing is required, it is available on site. A bus stop is located at the top of the driveway with a service to the towns of Uckfield and Heathfield. There is also a community age concern bus which is used by residents. Uckfield has a main line station, cinema and other amenities and Heathfield also has a very good range of local shops and smaller supermarkets.

Directions: Located on the Lewes road B2192, between Cross in Hand and Blackboys.
