A charming and deceptively spacious period home in the centre of this sought-after village.
Believed to date from the late 1700s, Hope Cottage is an attractive period cottage situated just off the green in the popular village of Horsted Keynes. During our clients' ownership the property has been extended and improved; behind its charming weatherboarded façade lies over 2,000 square feet of well-presented and characterful accommodation, the full extent of which can be seen on the floor plan.
There are three reception rooms, including an elegant triple aspect formal sitting room featuring a brick open fireplace, a cosy snug with exposed timbers and a woodburning stove, and a dining room which opens to the south east facing conservatory. The kitchen has French doors opening to the terrace and is fitted with a good range of painted wooden cabinetry and a central island, complemented by granite worktops, a ceramic butler sink, an electric Rangemaster oven and a number of integrated appliances. A ground floor bathroom with utility cupboard and a study complete the ground floor accommodation.
There are five bedrooms on the first floor, including a generous master bedroom and a stylish en suite bathroom including a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. Bedroom 2 also has an en suite wet room.
Hope Cottage is set behind wrought iron railings; a gate opens to a pathway leading to the front door and entrance porch. Adjoining the western side of the house is a double garage with electrically operated door, range of floor-mounted cupboards and space for a large fridge-freezer.
The cottage-style garden lies to the rear (south) of the house and comprises two main areas. There is a pretty brick courtyard terrace and seating area enclosed by colourful raised flower beds and number of climbing plants, from here a brick pathway extends across the rear of the house and leads to a raised lawn lying to the east, edged by shrub and flower beds, with a kitchen garden and a small raised seating area at the foot of a handsome copper beech.
