East Franklands is a fabulous 5 bedroom Victorian house situated on the outskirts of Hayward’s Heath and Lindfield. This wonderfully grand house has superbly proportioned rooms and high ceilings and would now benefit from modernisation and extension (subject to planning). The wonderful bones and elegant nature of this property mean that once modernised it will be one of the most special houses in the area.
Set back from the Lewes road the house also benefits from a garage and a large south facing rear garden. Some houses in the area have obtained planning to build in the garden which may be of interest for those seeking separate accommodation for further family members (subject to planning)
The Lewes Road conservation area boasts many of the finest houses in the area and lies just to the east of Haywards Heath. Haywards Heath has a good range of shops, sporting and leisure facilities along with superb rail connections into central London (London Victoria and London Bridge circa 42 mins) Brighton (15mins) and Gatwick (11 Mins).
