About this property

  • Little House is one of Hurst's oldest and well known properties. Built in c.1865, the house was originally two semi-detached cottages for the estate workers at Hurst Lodge. After the two cottages were turned into a single house at the turn of the 20th century, over the years it has been extended and sympathetically modernised to retain its unique features and charming character of a period property.
    On entering the house you come into the dining hall. With its solid oak exposed floor and wood burning stove, it is the perfect place to socialise or read a book. Stairs lead to the first floor along with doors to the kitchen and sitting room. Having been recently upgraded, the kitchen combines a blend of traditional Shaker style units and modern appliances – fridge freezer, wine cooler and boiling hot water tap – as well as a central island. Adjacent to here is the utility room that has further cupboards and space for the washing machine and tumble dryer.

    A further door leads through to the cloakroom. Flowing from the kitchen, the French oak framed orangery with its vaulted ceiling is the perfect space to dine whilst enjoying an outlook over the garden. Double French doors open up onto the garden and patio.

    The ‘L' shaped sitting room has a light and airy feel to it with the focal point being an open fireplace. A door opens to the family room that could be used for a number of uses – currently setup as a movie room.

    On the first floor, the delightful principal bedroom benefits from a stylish en suite that has a stand-alone roll top bath and good sized shower. The guest bedroom with its vaulted ceiling also has a shower en suite. There are three further bedrooms (with one currently setup as a study) and a family bathroom with a cast iron bath tub.

    To the front of the property is a gravel driveway that will cater for a number of vehicles. A side gate opens to the rear garden where the gravel driveway leads to a garage that is set to the rear corner of the garden. The rear South-West facing garden has been beautifully landscaped and is predominantly laid to lawn. There is a good sized patio that is perfect for outside dining, exceptionally well-stocked flower beds with one having a fig tree and others being bearers of summer fruits and a raised swimming pool.
    The detached brick built garage, that has power and lighting, comfortably accommodates a car and has an abundance of storage space. There is planning permission for the garage to be easily converted into a self-contained living space, gym or garden office.
