Gone are the days when if you wanted a home with character and charm, you had to buy something old, with draughty windows and creaky floorboards!
Now, with the help of housebuilder Millwood Designer Homes, buying new doesn’t mean you have to forgo a sense of history, especially remarkable Augustus House and Blomfield House in the highly-desirable Dormans Park, near East Grinstead.
Augustus House looks like a grand Georgian home and Blomfield’s Tudor-style charm with oak cladding showcase Millwood’s ability to replicate traditional styles whilst incorporating all the benefits of a modern home, resulting in the perfect example of old meets new.
Inside, they blend character with contemporary, from the beautiful Stoneham kitchen with granite worktops, bespoke oak staircase and engineered oak flooring, to the stone fireplace and hearth in Augustus’s drawing room and the inglenook fireplace in Blomfield’s.
They also have generous outside space, both set in half-acre plots with private entrances, triple garages and raised terraces to allow you to enjoy the large rear gardens. There’s even the opportunity to purchase a nearby 2.2-acre paddock by separate negotiation.
Sales Director Philip Brown says:
“Both homes are spaciously laid out over three floors, with five bedrooms, offering a flexible living solution for a growing family. Downstairs, impressive open-plan kitchen/family/breakfast rooms with either bifolds or French doors to the patio and rear garden are the perfect place for day-to-day living, whilst dining rooms and drawing rooms are ideal for more formal entertaining, and the study will come in handy if you need to work from home.
“On the first floor, you’ll find four spacious bedrooms, all of which are en suite. Master bedrooms are incredibly indulgent, with large walk-in closets and en suites with walk-in shower, bath and twin sinks. On the second floor there’s a further en-suite bedroom – perfect if relatives come to stay, or for the au pair – and a media room. Augustus House even has a room for a gym.
“Modern homes don’t get more traditional than these, so if you’re looking for the perfect blend of old meets new, come and see Augustus House and Blomfield House.”
Just over a mile from Dormans Park estate are both Dormansland, a pretty village with shops and several country pubs, and Dormans train station, which provides direct services to London in under an hour. The M25 network and Gatwick airport are also within a few miles of the park.
