Birch Grove, Felbridge

** DEVELOPMENT SOLD OUT **

 4 New 3, 4 and 5 Bedroom Homes in a Private Road Completed Spring 2015.

Harmoniously blending traditional methods of construction, design and materials with 21st-century luxury and comfort, Birch Grove in Felbridge triumphantly re-interprets the art of modern family living in a way that perfectly complements its environment. The latest development from Whelan Homes, designed with all the passion for quality and attention to detail on which their reputation has been based for the past 36 years, Birch Grove comprises an exclusive group of just four homes – a single pair of 3-bedroom semidetached, plus one 4-bedroom and one 5-bedroom detached houses – situated on their own private close off Copthorne Road.

Outwardly, the design of all four homes echoes the local verrnacular style, with the red brick elevations, tiled roofs, porches and bay windows, traditional tile-hung elevations, and casement windows underlined by decorative lead flashings so typical of Victorian and Edwardian village houses in this part of Surrey and Sussex. Inside, however, it’s a very different story. While detailed layouts obviously differ, all four homes boast the same exceptional levels of space and legendary standards of finish and fittings for which Whelan Homes are justly renowned.

Included in the standard specification, for example, are simply stunning contemporary fitted kitchens complete with high quality cabinets and Silestone worktops, plus a comprehensive array of branded integrated appliances. Ultra-stylish Italian designer bathrooms and en suites are also standard, as are fitted wardrobes in the majority of bedrooms, under-floor heating to the ground floors, multi-fuel stoves in the living rooms, smoke and intruder alarm systems and solar thermal roof panels to reduce energy costs.

Outside, each of the four properties is approached via its own block-paved driveway, providing off-road parking as well as giving access to attached single garages in the case of Plots 1 and 2, and detached double garages for Plots 3 and 4. Front gardens are lawned, with side access to the landscaped rear gardens which include both lawned and patio areas ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining – as well as providing a secure environment in which young children can play.

All in all then, these homes represent the ultimate marriage of traditional design, contemporary luxury and environmentally responsible practicality. In short, everything you would expect from Whelan Homes!

Shopping

If location is everything, then Felbridge, conveniently situated on the outskirts of the historic market town of East Grinstead, has got it all – particularly for families.

While the village itself enjoys an attractive semi-rural atmosphere, it also shares all the benefits enjoyed by its larger neighbour, with its wealth of attractive heritage architecture, and its wide range of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars and coffee shops – not to mention its thriving theatre and arts centre.

Leisure

Felbridge is surrounded by some of the loveliest countryside in the South East, much of it encompassed within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural beauty. The area is also close to the superb walking and riding country of the Ashdown Forest – the real-life setting for the magical Winnie the Pooh books – while steam fans can take a ride on the famous Bluebell Railway. If you’re looking for even more excitement, then Brighton – with its world famous shopping, entertainment and nightlife – is little more than 20 miles to the south.

Education

The area is fortunate in schooling provision for children of all ages, from pre-school, through the village’s own highly regarded primary school, to the twin campuses of Imberhorne School in East Grinstead.

Travel

Only some 25 miles south of London, and under an hour from the capital by train, it is ideally placed for commuting. The Development is within easy reach of the A22, M23 and M25 giving access to East Grinstead, Redhill & Reigate to the north and Brighton to the south.
