Very well-presented 1950s detached house on the edge of the village, with rural views.
Dating from the late 1950s and with attractive half-timbered elevations, 130 College Lane (also known as 'Oldfield') is a detached home in the hamlet of Hurst Wickham, on the edge of Hurstpierpoint, situated in an elevated position with some lovely far-reaching views to the east over open fields. The house has been in the same ownership for over 36 years, and has been carefully maintained and improved over time, resulting in a very well-presented and comfortable family home which still has good potential for further extension (subject to the necessary consents).
To the front of the house is a wide overhung porch canopy, from which the original front door opens to a spacious and welcoming entrance hall. There are two reception rooms: an elegant dual-aspect sitting room featuring a limestone fireplace with inset gas fire, and the adjoining dining/garden room which overlooks the garden and has French doors opening to the terrace.
The kitchen has space for a breakfast table and is fitted with a range of oak-fronted units, with attractive newly-fitted quartz worktops and a number of integrated Bosch appliances. Lying off the kitchen is a useful rear hall with deep, shelved larder cupboard, a cloakroom, and a large utility room and adjoining store (formed from the original garage).
There are three well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, two with fitted wardrobes and bedroom one benefitting from a stylish tiled wet room; the other bedrooms share a large family bathroom with suite including a corner bath and separate shower.
Oldfield is approached by a block paved driveway, rising to a parking area ahead of the house and flanked by an area of front lawn. To the side of the house is gated access to the rear garden, which is of particular note: a paved terrace next to the house extends out to an expanse of well-maintained level lawn, dotted with apple trees and edged by shaped flower and shrub borders. To the far end of the garden is a wildlife pond, of which Oldfield has shared ownership. In all about a fifth of an acre.

Oldfield is quite simply a super family home. It is very presented and has a super garden; I particularly love its position on the edge of the village with rural views.Rohan VinesProperty agent
