Cagefoot Lane, Henfield
In c1864 the Henfield village pastor built two houses in Cagefoot Lane for his two sons. Hamlyn Smith are proud to be able to offer for sale one of these houses; a delightful semi-detached four-bedroom house surrounded by mature trees and gardens on this quiet private lane, just off Henfield High Street. The house is beautifully presented throughout and has been lovingly cared for by its current owners. As you turn off the lane, you enter the grounds of the house through double gates onto a gravel driveway with space for two or more cars. The outside of the house,and the gardens in front, are truly charming. The windows and doors have unusual and elegant arches, a nod to the ecclesiastical background of the family that built the house. These details give the house a unique character while at the same time being beautifully understated. The main door has a covered porch and gives onto a lovely wide entrance hall. The hall floor has been restored with the original style Victorian tiles. To your left is the living room which has a dual aspect, with windows onto the garden at the front, and overlooking the raised beds of the vegetable garden to the side of the house. A stunning fireplace is the centrepiece of the room and is in full working order. To the right of the entrance hall is a lovely dining room which also has a fireplace and window onto the garden and this room in turn leads to the kitchen. Shaker-style units in the kitchen are fitted under a solid oak counter. Under the window overlooking the garden, there is a white enamel sink and drainer, with a waste disposal unit. A glass roof lets in beautiful light to the room. There is a stunning stone floor and a range cooker with an induction hob, two electric ovens and a grill. A wonderful full-height expanding larder cupboard and integrated dishwasher have also been built into the design. Laundry is kept out of the kitchen, as there is an extremely practical and good size utility room beyond the kitchen which has a door onto the garden and off which there is a downstairs WC. There are further storage cupboards and another sink in the utility room, in the same style as the kitchen with a solid oak counter. Upstairs on the first floor, there is an open landing with windows that fill the space with light and two lovely bedrooms served by the family bathroom. On the top floor are two further double bedrooms and a modern shower room. The house has central heating and a Worcester Bosch combination boiler.
