Property Summary

Ideal for a first-time buyer or perhaps a buy-to-let investor, this house enjoys a quiet, cul-de-sac location on a relatively modern residential development not far from Eastbourne and the south coast. Including a decked patio and enclosed, decorative rear garden laid mostly to gravel, the property lends itself well to summer evenings with friends and family while amenities nearby include schools, a convenience store, a pharmacy, a fish-and-chip shop and bus stops connecting the area to the town centre.

Interior
The front door opens onto a porch with a separate wooden, glass-panelled door opening on the reception hall, equipped with a luxury "Karndean" wood-effect floor. An archway to the left opens into the kitchen while, ahead, stairs with a storage cupboard beneath rise to the first floor and a separate archway leads into the living room/diner. The compact, modern, U-shaped kitchen is fitted with a granite-effect laminate floor and includes base and wall units in a light-coloured wood above and below dark-grey, rolled laminate work surfaces. The design incorporates a dual electric oven and four-ring hob, plumbing for a washing machine, a stainless steel sink with drainer and mixer tap and room for an upright fridge/freezer. A window overlooks the front of the property. The living room/diner is also fitted with "Karndean" wood-effect floors and includes plenty of space for a dining table and chairs as well as a three-piece suite. The room is fitted with a wall-mounted radiator and TV point while plenty of light floods the room through floor-to-ceiling windows bracketing the double doors which open onto the decked patio. The carpeted stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with white-painted railings and banisters and with doors opening onto the two double bedrooms, both fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators and with integral cupboards. The partially-tiled house bathroom lies between, and is equipped with a panel bath with a shower fitted with a splash screen and chrome hand rail, a pedestal hand basin with mirrored medicine cabinet above and a low-level WC. Warmth and hot water are provided by a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with thermostat and individual controls on all of the radiators while the house enjoys the benefits of loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, and double glazing – all contributing to its higher-than-average C rating on its EPC.

Location
Howlett Drive is located in the popular north Hailsham area. Positioned a little to the north of the centre of Hailsham between the Hawkes Farm Academy and the Hailsham Community College - the latter rated as a good school by Ofsted at its last inspection in March, 2017. A parade of shops on nearby Hawkeswood Road includes the pharmacy, convenience store and fish-and-chip shop. Whilst within walking distance to the town centre, the 93 bus service from Hawks Road provides alternative transport links. Here, the high street is home to an Asda, Tesco and Waitrose supermarket as well as a selection of pubs, bars and restaurants, banks and shops as well as the town’s livestock market. Howlett Drive is a short distance from the popular Cuckoo Trail which provides a 14 mile ‘green corridor’ for walkers and cyclists to enjoy the Sussex countryside. The property is also convenient for the A22 bypass which leads south the railway station at Polegate where regular services run to London Victoria, which is approximately an hour and 20 minutes away by train. The same road to the north also leads to London Gatwick Airport, which is under an hour’s drive away.

Exterior
The property is separated from the road by a small, lawned front garden with a path leading to the front door. The south-east-facing, private rear garden is enclosed on all three sides by head-high timber fence panels offering a degree of privacy from neighbouring properties, while mature trees provide shade in the summer. The decked patio area leads to the gravelled rear garden, which includes a pleasant, circular paved area as a centrepiece, with some plants and shrubs established in timber-edged beds. Storage is provided by a timber shed. The property comes with ample off-street parking.
