The current vendors have cleverly extended and improved this wonderful home to create a characterful property that originates from Pakyns Manor, understood to date back to the eleventh century. The secluded location and wonderful views can be admired from almost every room in the house, with windows offering a lovely outlook over the well tended garden, which has been carefully landscaped to create the current design.
Accessed via a winding drive you first approach the garden before catching a glimpse of this attractive home. A stone path leads through to the entrance porch, a useful addition by the current vendors, thoughtfully designed to replicate the existing architecture.
Upon entry a welcoming reception hall has stairs leading up to the first floor whilst the corridor to the left leads through to the ground floor accommodation, which briefly comprises a kitchen with utility room, lounge and conservatory.
The bespoke kitchen features a vaulted ceiling, Norwegian oak flooring and patio doors opening onto the paved outdoor dining area. Keen cooks are well catered for with a six burner Britannia range cooker and hood, plus there is an eye level Bosch oven with storage tray. An original small stained-glass window is intact, whilst there is also the modern convenience of a utility room with space for appliances.
The lounge was once part of the Manor House and the original oak beams remain in place. This room offers fine proportions, which are enhanced by the Amdega conservatory. Of Cedar construction it was added in 2008 and offers further views and access to the garden. It also benefits from electric underfloor heating, as does the kitchen.
Heading up to the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and overlooking the garden, with the main bedroom being triple aspect and having an ensuite shower room. The family bathroom is fully tiled and fitted with a Whirlpool jacuzzi corner bath. There are storage cupboards on the landing and a loft with pull down ladder which offers scope to extend (stnc)
The original double garage is now a single with works well underway to convert the remainder into an ideal office or study space, with completion imminent. There is also a wooden summerhouse.
Hurstpierpoint is surrounded by beautiful countryside with footpaths and bridleways connecting to the stunning South Downs. There is easy access to M23 which allows quick commutes to Brighton, London and Gatwick Airport. The Hickstead International Horse Riding Arena is also close by along with private Horse Stable facilities. There are a number of highly regarded schools both locally and in the neighbouring areas including St Lawrence Primary, Hurst College and Downlands.
