Batts Drive, Henfield
Batts House is a unique five-bedroom double-fronted property in the Sussex village of Henfield. The oldest parts of the house date back to the 17th Century, the house was then further developed in the 19th Century. The property sits on a substantial plot at the corner of Batts Drive and Broomfield Road. On one side of the gravel drive, there are oak trees and on the other, a beautiful liquidambar tree, while the house is set back behind a large front lawn. There is a garage and ample space to park several cars on the drive. An extraordinary wisteria climbing the front of the house may be over 100 years old. The house has an elegant red brick storm porch and the front door opens to an impressive entrance hall where there is currently a dining table. This central hall gives access to the reception rooms on either side of the house and to the kitchen dining room at the back; there is a turning staircase to the first floor. The principal reception room on the right has a large inglenook fireplace that belongs to the original, 17th-century part of the house, and stands opposite large Victorian bay windows that overlook the front garden. On the other side of the house, a further elegant reception room has a Victorian-style fireplace with a gas fire. Returning to the entrance hall, there are wooden floors with wide boards, that continue through to the kitchen/dining room at the rear. The kitchen/dining room is a wonderful family room with plenty of space for a dining table, and a door to the garden. There are shaker-style units, a gas hob and a double electric oven. There is also an integrated Miele dishwasher, while the washing machine is currently tucked away in the utility/larder cupboard off the kitchen.

The large gardens wrap around two sides of the house with lawns and mature borders and there is a patio area outside the kitchen.
