This seldom available and deceptively spacious three bedroom semi-detached family residence, which is believed to have originally been built in the 1950's and occupies a well-appointed plot towards the northern end of the well regarded street of Willow Way, is idyllically situated just off the ever popular Cuckfield Road in the quintessential and picturesque Sussex village of Hurstpierpoint.
Located within easy reach of the main high street which offers a comprehensive range of boutique style shopping facilities, this sympathetically improved home is superbly positioned to take advantage of all the further amenities provided by this prestigious location which enjoys far reaching views of the South Downs, such as St Lawrence C of E Primary School which was rated 'outstanding' in the latest Ofsted rankings. A useful bus stop is located a few yards from the property, whilst a recreational facility offering a children's playground, a skate board park and a range of football pitches is also positioned a moment's walk around the corner. Being situated towards the northern border of the village, the road link of the A23 and the larger market town of Burgess Hill, where the popular 'Triangle' leisure complex is located, are also conveniently reached. Hassocks Station, with its frequent and direct services to both Brighton and London, is less than two miles distant.
This well-proportioned house, which is traditionally built of brick beneath a tiled roof and currently offers just under one-thousand square feet of versatile accommodation arranged over two storeys, provides a fantastic opportunity to be further updated to a more contemporary standard. Replacement double glazing has been distributed throughout, cavity wall insulation has been administered, all principal rooms have been re-plastered, all external walls have been painted in white, and modern radiators have been provided throughout from gas fired central heating. Illustrations of the original features include terracotta tiled flooring in the kitchen breakfast room, as well as wooden parquet style flooring in the lounge. Most of the loft storage space, which has lighting, has been boarded, and provides an opportunity to be converted to include a fourth bedroom and complete the arrangement over a third floor, subject to the necessary planning consents. The detached outbuilding, located to the right hand side and slightly to the rear of the property, has been converted into two useful studio rooms measuring just over two-hundred-and-fifty square feet which is suitable for a variety of purposes, the larger of which is at the front, subdivided by a partition wall.
Outside, the property is approached over a dropped kerb leading to a brick laid driveway encompassing the immediate front and right hand side of the property, providing off road parking spaces for at least three vehicles. Privacy is implemented by a low level brick wall buffeted by a hedge row to the front, whilst there is a wooden fence to the right hand side. A wooden access door provides admittance to the front of the converted outbuilding, with a further internal door to the rear area where a door to the side leads to the rear garden. This almost directly east facing space can also be accessed via a wooden access gate at the right hand side of the property, and is fully enclosed by wooden fencing to the right hand side and the rear with the additional privacy of a variety of trees to all sides, whilst further accommodating a stone laid block patio area abutting the immediate rear of the property leading to a generous expanse of lawn, in all measuring approximately one-hundred-and-ten foot long and thirty feet wide.
The ground floor opens into an entrance hall, where the staircase rising to the first floor landing is located, with the additional benefit of a downstairs cloakroom, whilst further opening to an extremely useful utility area with plumbing and space for a range of appliances, as well as a door leading to the rear garden. From the entrance hall, there are doors to both the spacious kitchen breakfast room, which has a range of a matching wall and base mounted units incorporating enough space for a cooker with an extractor hood over as well as a free standing fridge freezer, and the lounge, which has an assumed seating area around a television point. There are casement doors from the lounge, with a curtain rail over to provide seclusion to the two areas, leading to a sun lounge conservatory which could be utilised as a home office, a children's playroom, or a snug.
The first floor landing has an opaque window overlooking the side of the property, and is where an access hatch to the loft space is located, in addition to a built in storage cupboard. The third bedroom enjoys a pleasant dual aspect over the side and the rear, the second bedroom has a fitted cupboard where the immersion heater tank is located, whilst the master bedroom, which also has a fitted storage cupboard, basks in a delightful view upon the rear garden via two windows. The family bathroom incorporates a modern three piece suite with a wash hand basin, a low level lavatory, and a corner style spa bath with a separate shower over, whilst there is also a fitted bulk head storage cupboard.
