A most spacious Grade II listed detached house with elegant and characterful accommodation.
Hurst House is a beautiful period property built of Hamstone and brick elevations under a slated and tiled roof. The property has a fine Ashlar Hamstone frontage with stone mullioned windows and has a host of period features including fireplaces in most rooms, stone mullioned and sash windows mostly with shutters, ornate staircase, window seats etc. The property has mains gas fired central heating. It is fair to say a programme of cosmetic updating would be beneficial as the house has been in the same ownership for many years but the property represents an excellent opportunity to buy a beautiful house that affords elegant and flexible family living.
On the ground floor the entrance door under a columned portico leads into a wide entrance hall with ornate staircase and stained glass door to the rear garden. The drawing room is fine double aspect room to the rear with open fireplace and regency full length casement doors. The dining room at the front has a flagstone floor, window seat and open fireplace with carved Hamstone surround. The library, also at the front of the building has shelving and flagstone floor. The kitchen to the rear has flagstone floors, part exposed stone walling, Belfast sink, large pantry, service staircase and door to the rear. Also on the ground floor is a lovely double aspect sitting room with casements to the rear, open fireplace flanked by glass display cabinets. From this room a door leads into a utility room/scullery with sink, plumbing, boiler and door to rear garden. This in turn leads to a recently plastered ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room, this room along with the scullery would be ideal to convert into an annexe.
On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms, all with fireplaces and three double aspect. There is a large family bathroom as well as a large shower room and a staircase leads to a second floor where there is a landing with cupboards, a bedroom with a velux window and a spacious attic with a velux window.
To the front is a small garden on to the pavement with ornate railings and to side of the property are substantial vehicle and personal gates leading into the enclosed rear garden. The rear garden is walled and extremely private, it has an extensive gravelled parking area and further gravelled sitting areas, lawns and an abundance of trees some fruit and some ornamental. There is also a recently refurbished glass house on a South facing wall and a number of small outbuildings useful for fuel/machinery storage.
Mains water, electricity, drainage, gas fired central heating.
