About this property

  • Believed to date from the turn of the last century, Fieldhurst is an attractive, detached period property situated in the heart of the sought-after village of Horsted Keynes. This charming house is well presented, light and bright, and benefits from a number features in keeping with its period, including brick elevations with red brick dressings, a pair of twin bays on the northern aspect and both working and feature fireplaces.

    There are two reception rooms on the ground floor overlooking the rear garden: one with an inset woodburner and the other with an attractive feature fireplace. The kitchen and dining room is a modern addition to the house, and benefits from a good range of units with granite worktops, ample space for a dining table and French doors opening to the south-facing terrace and garden. A spacious hall and a cloakroom complete the ground floor. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, two dual-aspect with far reaching views to the village church. The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with suite including a bath and separate shower cubicle, and an additional WC with basin.

    Fieldhurst is accessed from Church Lane via a private driveway, which leads to the detached single garage ahead of the house. A pathway leads through the attractively landscaped and well-stocked part-walled garden to a paved terrace adjoining the front of the house. There is access around both sides of the house to the rear garden, which is laid to lawn.
