About this property

  • 9 High Hurst Close is situated in one of the most desirable roads in the popular village of Newick, within easy reach of The Green (0.3 miles) and other village amenities. Understood to date from the mid-1950s and characterised in an attractive, traditional Sussex style with half-tiled red brick elevations, the house offers over 2,000 square feet of well-presented accommodation, the full extent of which can be seen on the floor plan.

    A solid wood front door under an overhung tiled porch opens to the entrance hall, off which the main reception rooms flow. The sitting room is of particular note: a lovely, light and bright room featuring an elegant fireplace set with a gas-fired coal effect fire, French doors opening to the garden and double doors opening to the adjoining dining room. The cosy, dual-aspect family room offers a versatile third reception room, also with a fireplace.

    The kitchen is fitted with a range of farmhouse-style painted wood units with granite worktops, a Britannia range oven and a number of integrated Neff appliances; there is ample space for a central breakfast table. A good-sized utility room and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    There are five well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, bedrooms one and two with fully tiled en suite shower/bathrooms. A family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms; all bathrooms have electric underfloor heating and power showers.

    9 High Hurst Close is approached via a gated, shingle driveway offering parking for two vehicles and leading to a third parking space under the car port adjoining the house. To the front of the house is an area of lawn, bordered to the front by post and rail fencing and attractive Photinia Red Robin. There is gated pedestrian access around both sides of the house to the rear garden, which is largely laid to level lawn, edged by fencing and established flower and shrub borders. To the rear of the garden is a well screened, large timber store with stable doors and power connected.
