United Kingdom / South and South East England / Burgess Hill
Beautiful Victorian 3-bedroom house in the semi-rural town of Burgess Hill, near Brighton and only 45 mins from central London.
The house has recently been completely renovated and retains all original features such as sash windows, open fireplaces and a bay window.
The 23ft sitting room has solid oak floors and leads onto the kitchen/dining room which is bright, sunny and well-equipped.
Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and a further single bedroom suitable for a young child (cot and bedding can be supplied). The bathroom is not large but has everything you need, we renovated this in 2015.
The kitchen leads out to a lovely 65ft garden with a large patio and trampoline for the kids. The garden backs onto the local park (although there is no access to the park from our garden).
The house has hi-speed (fibre) wi-fi. Other features include 2 TVs (1 downstairs, 1 in master bedroom), DVD player (downstairs), Satellite TV, Ipod speakers, dishwasher and washing machine and dryer (also clothes line outside).
It really is a gorgeous house and we are extremely proud of it!
Burgess Hill is a small town just north of the famous seaside town of Brighton.
We live on the favourable north side of town, 150 yards from the mainline train station (although there is virtually no noise from the trains) with rail links direct to central London (45 mins), Gatwick Airport (15 mins) and Brighton (10 mins).
There are a few local shops and 2 large supermarkets in the centre of town, although neighbouring Haywards Heath (3 miles) provides more options for shops and restaurants.
Brighton is famed for its nightlife and of course, the Pier, and for those looking to travel further afield Gatwick is the 6th biggest airport in the world with direct links to most UK and European cities.
Other local tourist attractions include the Bluebell Railway, the historic town of Hastings (1066 country) and the quaint market town of Lewes. For equestrians there are a number of local riding schools within easy reach.
It is a great place to live - the neighbours are friendly, there are fabulous countryside walks and some cosy little pubs in neighbouring villages.
We are a married couple in our late twenties with 2 children age 3 and 7.
Ross is a former professional football (soccer) player and now heads up the sports department at a local prep (private) school.
Sarah owns her own business running corporate events.
We enjoy cinema, theatre, music, sport (watching and playing) and eating out.
Although we are used to having little ones in the house we are vigilant in keeping a close eye on them and as a result, the house is not completely "child-friendly" (steep staircase, light coloured sofas and carpets) so please bear this in mind if you are looking at travelling with young children.
We try not to be too precious about our things, but just ask that eveything is left in the condition in which you find it.
Thank you for looking, we look forward to discussing an exchange with you!
