Full description

A most desirable and unique wing of this impressive period home that has undergone stylish refurbishment, whilst considering and complimenting the characterful features including a Tudor bell in the tower on the roof that is visible from the front of the property.

Now providing well-proportioned and flexible accommodation that offers 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms positioned over three floors, making it the ideal home for modern family living.

Believed to have been constructed in 1867 by the noted architect Anthony Salvin. Grade II listed, the property was divided into four individual homes in 1984 and is accessed via a private drive, leading to a gravelled area with parking for several cars and a double garage, with the main hub of Fernhurst village just under 0.5 of a mile away.

3 Hawksfold House has impressive high ceilings and large windows which allows an abundance of light throughout. As you enter through the front door into the entrance hall, this space immediately gives you a sense of what the rest of this home will be like. To the right is a fabulous, refitted kitchen/breakfast room with central island which leads directly into the formal dining room and out onto southwest facing gardens beyond.

As you then lead down the entrance hall there is a downstairs cloakroom which completes the ground floor.

Situation

On the first floor, you are met with a window seat at the top of stairwell with views overlooking the front of the property. The dual aspect sitting room next-door has original floorboards as well as a central log burner which both enhances the character and makes for a comfortable and inviting space.

There are two bedrooms off the sitting room, one of which consists of a double bed and the other currently used as a study with vast floor to ceiling fitted bookcases. Both have views over the stunning rear gardens. This floor benefits from its own shower room at the end of the landing.

On the top floor are three further great sized bedrooms and family bathroom. The principal bedroom provides a lovely en suite, whilst the other bedrooms enjoy rear aspect views extending out over the South Downs.

The property's stunning landscaped gardens consist of raised wooden planters, various species of plants and trees, as well as ample lawn area. The views over the adjacent fields to the south towards Holder Hill and across the West Sussex countryside provide an attractive backdrop to this special home.

With the added benefit of an incredibly useful cellar with two storage areas, one of which is racked for wine and a further workshop area and a separate double garage completing this home.

Conveniently located close to the centre of Fernhurst which offers day to day shops and facilities including a popular primary school, newsagent/general store, fabulous greengrocers selling local produce, post office, chemist, restaurants and a popular pub on the green by the church. The property is also within walking distance of the doctor's surgery.
