Horse riding is an extremely healthy activity, which is popular among people of all ages. Last year alone saw over 1.3 million riders enjoying the sport on a regular basis. Ideal for those with a passion for riding, luxury property developer, Millwood Designer Homes, has created a beautiful selection of traditionally styled homes at The Paddock, its latest development built on former stable grounds. Based in Ansty, West Sussex, The Paddock is situated on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, meaning residents can enjoy the abundance of countryside for endless scenic horse rides.

Due to launch on 15th October 2016, Millwood Designer Homes is creating a collection of five detached, four and five bedroom homes located in the pretty village of Ansty. The homes, crafted with the highest attention to detail, will reflect the style of the traditional Sussex setting and feature a meticulous finish throughout. All of the homes will have the Millwood trademark of using reclaimed materials, so that the development has the appearance that mirrors its surroundings.

Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “We are very much looking forward to the launch of The Paddock. Nearby Cuckfield and the South Downs offer beautiful riverside bridleways that horse lovers can enjoy throughout the year, making The Paddock the perfect development, in which riders can make the most of living in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”

The nearby village of Cuckfield, which is just one mile away, offers residents all the necessary day-to-day amenities, whilst just three miles away, Haywards Heath is home to The Orchards Shopping centre, which features a wide range of high street brands. The local public house, The Talbot in Cuckfield, features an array of local beers including popular ales from Sussex brewers making it the perfect pit stop after a day of exploring the ancient woodland on horseback. Those that wish to travel a little further for their retail needs, can escape to the seaside city of Brighton, which is just 14 miles away. Brighton offers independent shops and elegant boutiques, perfect for antiques as well as designer labels.

The Paddock is the perfect family development as there are a number of nearby primary, secondary and grammar schools, including Burgess Hill School for girls and Worth School, both of which regularly place highly in the league tables. For private education, Brighton College takes children between the ages of 3 and 18 and its campus is just a short walk from Brighton Beach. The College has overseas sister schools in Abu Dhabi and Bangkok, which offer great opportunities for children to further their studies and achieve an outstanding education.

Despite its rural surroundings, The Paddock enjoys convenient links to main cities and the capital. Haywards Heath train station is less than five miles from the development and offers regular services to London in less than an hour. Nearby motorway links include the A23 that turns into M23, giving residents’ access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports and making international travel an easy exercise.

Prices at The Paddock start from £925,000 for a four bedroom home and from £1,095,000 for a five bedroom home.
