DESCRIPTION 
The Rocks is a beautiful 5-bedroom home in the charming village of High Hurstwood. Originally built in the Elizabethan era, the building was added to in Georgian times and has since been sympathetically refurbished over the years and now embraces many attractive features from both periods. Arranged over 3 floors with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms, an elegant bespoke kitchen and a striking orangery, this house has so much to offer its new owners. A truly impressive home which has been tastefully decorated throughout and meets the demands of today's modern family with ease and style.

OUTSIDE 
This lovely residence is accessed off Rocks Lane via a wooden 5-bar gate. A gravel driveway in front of a brick-built garage/workshop offers ample parking for several vehicles. A pathway leads to the front door, or a gate provides direct access to the garden. The pathway has a flower bed to the left and an expanse of lawn to the right with a mature hedgerow along the border. A formal parterre sits to the right of the house and there are two large terraces perfect for al-fresco entertaining and relaxing. A substantial area of grass runs from the larger terrace outside the orangery, with an attractive brick wall and a yew hedge forming the right-hand border with the neighbouring property. There are oak trees and a pond located near the bottom boundary and glorious views across the surrounding countryside. The house and garden sits comfortably within a plot of approximately half an acre.
