Full descriptionBeautiful Grade II Listed Detached Period House.
Set back from a peaceful leafy lane, parts of this immensely elegant house are believed to be at least 550 years old.
Conveniently located in the green belt hamlet of Faygate with easy access to both Horsham and Crawley, behind the original red brick facade a tastefully presented home has been lovingly and sympathetically improved to create a well-appointed family home. From the distinctive chimney stack, inglenook fireplace and exposed timbers to the handmade kitchen every aspect of this home creates a stunning example of modern day life in a period property. Viewing is Highly Recommended. No Onward Chain.
In More Detail - Arranged over two floors, exposed beams, wood floors and column radiators combine with oil fired central heating to create a well-appointed home with an abundance of charm and character.
Inside - A classic entrance porch opens onto a welcoming hallway leading to a generously proportioned living room with a wood-burner. A beamed ceiling and parquet flooring create an instant wow factor, while French doors open onto the sun terrace and rear garden.
Overlooking the front garden a delightful sitting room is the real heart of this home with its open inglenook fireplace, beams and the further rich tones of a parquet floor. Offering views of the pretty front garden, the kitchen is comprehensively fitted with handmade kitchen cabinets topped with granite countertops and housing an integral dishwasher, wine fridge and 'Hotpoint' washer/dryer. A range cooker and tiled floor remind you of the charm and history of this home, while an LG American-style fridge-freezer and an oil fired boiler add a more modern finishing touch.
A separate study with a beamed ceiling offers ample dual space potential as a sixth bedroom.
Leading to a cloakroom/WC a rear hallway offers stairs to first floor, an under-stairs cupboard and a door to the driveway.
Upstairs the double aspect master bedroom is a charming room offering a lovely sense of height and space beneath its vaulted ceiling. A decorative cast iron fireplace and exposed floorboards add to the elegant feel, while built-in wardrobe cupboards provide ample storage.
Two further double bedrooms are equally well-presented and proportioned and whilst one has a beamed ceiling and exposed floorboards, wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, the vaulted ceiling and beams of the other are beautifully lit from two windows. Two single bedrooms enjoy views of the rear garden.
A roll-top bath creates an instant focal point in the family bathroom.
Outside - In all the gardens and grounds of this beautiful house extend to approximately 1.5 acres.
