Own a piece of history at The Priory, Haywards Heath, says Connells

05 August 2019

Reserve now at landmark development

Connells estate agency in Haywards Heath is pleased to announce that homes at new development The Priory, a former chapel sympathetically converted into 43 luxury one, two and three bedroom apartments close to the town centre, are now available. With a number of reservations taken following the successful launch event on 3rd and 4th August, and high demand expected to continue, the branch is advising customers not to delay getting in touch for their chance to reserve.

Steeped in history and restored to an exceptional standard by The Mountley Group, the building dates back to 1896 where it was inhabited by a community of nuns from Bruges before being used as Haywards Heath's first Roman Catholic Church. The former chapel was also used as a restaurant, and in 2008 featured in the fifth Season of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

The apartments have retained many of their original features, and stylishly blend the striking Gothic architecture with the new, offering light, open-plan interiors with contemporary design and finishes, generous rooms with high ceilings and original cast iron window box holders, plus the distinctive clock tower. Each home will also include kitchens with fully integrated appliances, allocated parking on selected plots, landscaped garden areas and a communal courtyard.

“The Priory is an outstanding landmark development giving customers the opportunity to purchase a high quality new home set in a fantastic location for commuting and leisure, that is both full of character and available at an affordable price,” says Stephen Bushell, Senior Branch Manager at Connells Haywards Heath. “Apartments like these don’t come along often in this area, so we urge all prospective buyers to get in touch, come and view the show home, and get a real feel for this unique site.”

Ideally located in the attractive semi-rural town of Haywards Heath, The Priory is surrounded by the nearby countryside of Victoria Park, Ashdown Forest and Weald, the Ouse Valley and South Downs.  Haywards Heath is a busy and expanding market town with a wide variety of amenities and leisure facilities including good schools, shops, a nature reserve, country walks, restaurants and leisure facilities, as well as the wide variety of famous attractions, festivals and scenery that the nearby seaside resort of Brighton has to offer.

Whether it’s by road or rail, Haywards Heath is superbly placed for transport. The A23 can be found approximately five miles to the west of the town, connecting residents to Brighton, Gatwick Airport, the M23, M25 and beyond. Whilst Haywards Heath train station is less than a mile from the development and provides regular direct services to London Bridge and London Victoria in as little as 42 minutes, and Brighton in under 20 minutes.

Prices at The Priory start from £190,000 and buyers can utilise the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme*, which provides greater assistance for first-time buyers and existing homeowners to get onto or move up the property ladder.  For further information, please contact Connells Haywards Heath on 01444 704116 or email: haywardsheath@connells.co.uk
