Little House, Hurst
5 bedroom detached house for sale
With the crunch of gravel on the drive, and a charming village setting, Little House offers a warm welcome home with real fires, a beautiful interior, and period detailing.
Believed to date back to around 1863, and offered to the market for the first time in over 20 years, this character home has been carefully preserved and sympathetically updated by its current owners.
Contrary to its name, Little House is particularly spacious; comprising over 2,280 square feet of living space, a plot size of around a fifth of an acre, and a detached brick garage with gated driveway.
The landscaped garden and timber outdoor heated pool are sure to make the most of long summer days, and the stunning oak-framed garden room and Indian sandstone patio mean the garden can be enjoyed all year round.
Each room is tastefully presented, and there’s a good balance of living space for families of all ages. In particular, the lounge is grand enough for entertaining, yet cosy enough for quiet nights in. The family room, which could be used as a study, provides a quiet retreat from any bustle from the kitchen. With five bedrooms, three bathrooms, dining in the kitchen or dining room, a utility and cloakroom, this lovely family home caters for the busiest of lives.
The English village setting is complete with the local cricket ground and duck pond, a village store (with Post Office), an independent bakery and primary school. Close-by there is an abundance of country walks and quiet lanes for cycling along with several proper country pubs - the nearest, being only a few steps away, has been serving pints and home-cooked favourites to thirsty and hungry locals for over 400 years.
For commuters and London days out, Twyford Station is just a four minute drive away (for the 28 minute morning service to Paddington). Twyford is also on the new Crossrail route to key stations in the heart London, east London and the City (opening soon). For national travel, nearby Reading station serves major cities, including Manchester, Southampton, Birmingham, Leeds and Bristol.
Taking a look behind the door at Little House will reward you with timber beams, Suffolk latches, a real fire, stable door and a wood-burning stove. You may also appreciate the luxurious twist of the roll-top bath, generous room sizes with some featuring tumbled marble and solid oak flooring. This is complemented by the modern features of premium replacement leaded light windows and Superfast broadband availability*
A viewing is highly recommended. Please contact Nick or Teresa with any questions, or to arrange your appointment.
"The village is quiet and during the summer you can hear the sound of leather on willow at the cricket ground.
There is something about the friendliness of Hurst's village community - from its bi-annual village pantomime and Annual Country Fair, to the annual Hurst Village Society Christmas Ball.
Hurst village is a place where you can really get involved in things, or simply choose the quiet life"
