AN EXCEPTIONAL GRADE II* LISTED 16TH CENTURY FARMHOUSE WITH 5 DOUBLE BEDROOMS, LANDSCAPED GARDENS AND GARAGE.

Conjuring a sense of elegance from a bygone age,Hurst House sits discreetly back from the country roads of Haywards Heath encompassed by the tranquility of its own idyllic grounds. Exuding an unmistakable amount of charm with its original fireplaces, exposed beams and sandstone mullions, this Jacobean farmhouse retains an abundance of original period features.

Exuding an unmistakable amount of charm with its original fireplaces, exposed beams and sandstone mullions, this Jacobean farmhouse retains an abundance of original period features. Built by the Hurst family who set up the original farm in the medieval period and went on to become renowned local brick makers; it's the distinguished red brick façade with its sandstone dressings, Horsham stone slab roof and elegant chimney stack that combine to create a picture-perfect first impression.

In More Detail - The wide pebble driveway leading up to Hurst House gives a real sense of privacy to this most distinguished setting. A plethora of original fireplaces, exposed beams and leaded windows combine with vaulted ceilings, bread ovens and a heritage palette of Farrow & Ball and Fired Earth tones to create a beautiful example of versatile family living in a period property.

Built in the mid-16th century, the date engraved above the solid oak front door commemorates when the house was altered in 1660, while the exposed beams that feature throughout the house are thought to be made from reclaimed ships' timbers.

Inside - A large entrance hall serves as an impressive hint of what's to come, its refined solid wood doors opening onto to the easy flowing layout of this classic family home.

Offering lovely views onto the landscaped gardens, the main reception room creates a peaceful space to relax as a family. Beautifully lit by dual aspect leaded windows, a distinguished working fireplace adds a traditional focal point, while the wood floor, exposed beams and bespoke 'Hurst Grey' colour scheme lend the perfect finishing touches.

Across the hallway it's the magnificent inglenook fireplace of the formal dining room that instantly reminds you of the character of this Grade II* listed home. A wonderful space to entertain, a fitted oak dining table is perfectly sized for large family gatherings while the bread ovens of the working fireplace add to the enviable amount of charm this home has to offer.

A classic Aga nestles within the chimney breast of the kitchen/breakfast room with its feature flag stone floor. Looking out onto the extensive gardens, this classic country kitchen is fully fitted with a central island and a wealth of traditional wood cabinets and granite
countertops that wraparound its ample proportions. Nestled beneath a protective glass case, this home's original sink with its eye-catching raised stone drain is perfectly preserved. The double height ceiling and dual aspect windows of the breakfast room add to the sense of space, while a separate utility room provides discreet space for laundry appliances.

The pretty floral patterns of a Sanitan basin add a splash of colour to a WC that completes the ground floor.

First Floor - The carved wood banisters of the wide staircase lead you upstairs where three double bedrooms provide ample family accommodation.

Natural light tumbles into the superbly graceful master suite creating a calm and peaceful feel, and highlighting yet another period fireplace. Sympathetically styled fitted wardrobes and deep recessed cupboards provide plenty of storage, while its exposed beams provide a breathtaking
backdrop that's hard to ignore. A large en suite bathroom combines brass crosshead and telephone taps with a full size bath, bidet and separate walk-in shower; its duo of Velux windows offering the potential to be converted into a dormer extension, subject to the correct consents.

The feeling of light and space continues along the hallway in each of the additional two double bedrooms, and whilst both look out onto the surrounding countryside, one features dual aspect leaded windows and an open fireplace.

Arranged in a sleek white tile setting with underfloor heating, the family bathroom lends a contemporary twist to this period farmhouse with its modern bath, ceilingmounted rainfall shower and Shaker-style cabinets.

Second Floor - The rich tones of the distinctive wood staircase flow up past a broad window seat that offers a peaceful spot to admire the gardens. Beneath the gables of a wonderful vaulted ceiling with its exposed beams, the top floor of this family home creates plenty of versatility.

A large study area provides ample convenience for those who work from home, yet could equally be a games room or additional sitting room.

Generously sized, two large double bedrooms enjoy their own views of the grounds and surrounding countryside from their dual aspect windows, and a family shower room echoes the contemporary design of the bathroom below with its wet-room shower and modern suite.

Black wrought iron gates open onto the large driveway of this 16th century home whose quintessential English gardens provide a wealth of idyllic outdoor space.

Statuesque trees wrap-around established lawns to offer a lovely sense of privacy and a wonderful amount of greenery throughout the seasons. The flag stones of the kitchen flow out onto a large terrace that's ideal for relaxing in the sun with the weekend papers or entertaining friends and family, while this home's original well is now cleverly used as a fire pit.

A detached garage is currently configured as informal accommodation and offers plenty of potential to be tailored to your own needs (subject to the correct consents).

IN THE LOCAL AREA
Situated in an enchanting semi-rural location on the outskirts of Haywards Heath, Hurst House benefits from the best of both worlds with its easy access to the shops and amenities of the town centre and the peacefulness and tranquillity of its surroundings.
