Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has announced the launch of Birchen Oak, a new development situated close to the charming village of Lindfield in Haywards Heath. With homes ready to move into from September, Birchen Oak will consist of a brand new collection of four and five-bedroom homes, with prices starting from £769,950.


Hidden by mature woodland and hedgerows, the homes have been designed to be architecturally mindful of the development’s natural rural surroundings with red brick and timber exteriors. Rustic tiles and traditional window frames add further character to each home.


Benefitting from flexible open plan layouts, homes at Birchen Oak have been designed with the needs of modern living in mind. Decorated with contemporary, neutral colours, residents can personalise their homes to suit their individual tastes. The kitchens are fitted with Bosch ovens and gas hobs, whilst the bathroom suites are by Roca. Spacia flooring by Amtico has been fitted to the kitchen, bathroom, en-suite and cloakroom.


Christine Tiernan, Sales and Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson said “Our new homes at Birchen Oak have been carefully designed with plenty of character and we look forward to welcoming new residents to this wonderful rural location.  With a number of schemes available to help purchasers enjoy a stress-free move, we can help them get into their new home in time to enjoy the balmy summer evenings and sunny weekends ahead.”

The development is a stone’s throw from Lindfield, a leafy hamlet with luscious greenery full of charming independent boutiques, traditional pubs like the Stand-Up Inn, and a local wine merchant called South Down Cellars. For those looking for high street brands, the local Orchards Shopping Centre is nearby.


Surrounded by the beautiful West Sussex countryside, residents at Birchen Oak will be able to spend their weekends walking the Ouse Valley, or the acres of woodland in the High Weald. For wildlife enthusiasts and ramblers, the nearby Eastern Road Nature Reserve is home to many birds and other local wildlife.


Haywards Heath is the perfect location for commuters and benefits from excellent rail links, providing easy access to London Victoria in 47 minutes, Worthing in 35 minutes and Brighton in 20 minutes. By car, Brighton is just 46 minutes, Horsham is 31 minutes and Gatwick is only 21 minutes.


Prices for the homes start at £769,950 for a four-bedroom home and from £999,950 for a five-bedroom home. For more information call 01444 708 721, visit or visit the marketing suite Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm.
