Handsome Edwardian house with scope for improvement, in the centre of this popular village.
Bordelands is an attractive double-fronted Edwardian house situated just off The Green in the popular village of Horsted Keynes. Built in 1906, the house has been in the same family since it was built and is on the open market for the first time in its 116-year history. Whilst clearly having been a comfortable family home, Bordelands would now benefit from refurbishment and updating, offering a new owner an excellent opportunity with enormous potential, subject to the necessary consents and permissions being obtained.
The floor plan gives a comprehensive overview of the full extent of the accommodation and its layout. There are two reception rooms flanking the entrance hall to the front of the property, both with bay windows and fireplaces. The kitchen and breakfast room lies beyond, fitted with a good range of wood-effect units and with space for a small breakfast table. A door opens from the kitchen to the garden room, in turn linking to the original privy - now a useful utility and boot room with plumbing for laundry appliances and an adjoining ground floor shower room.
A door opens under the stairs to steps descending to the cellar storage room.
There are three well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, served by a family bathroom.
Bordelands is well positioned in its plot, set back from the road behind a picket fence and an expanse of front lawn. A private driveway, over which Bordelands has a right of way, leads to a parking area to the side of the house, opening to a block paved courtyard where there is a detached workshop and a greenhouse.
The south-facing rear garden is mainly laid to level lawn, enclosed by fencing and a band of mature trees to the east. A timber garden shed is tucked away to one side, offering useful garden storage.
The driveway to the west of the house is owned by Joylands, over which Bordelands has a right of way.

I think Bordelands has really exciting potential - it's a really good looking house with the elegant proportions of the Edwardian period, with huge scope for a new owner to modernise and update.Rohan Vines
