Hustpierpoint is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious and picturesque villages in Sussex. It is surrounded by a patchwork of fields with the rolling hills of the South Downs nearby, yet the transport links to London and Brighton keep it well connected. Peacefully positioned close to the quaint village high street is Sussex House; a recently converted Victorian building which now contains 7 exceptional apartments. Sensitively designed yet with many contemporary touches, this generous two-bedroom first floor apartment balances both country-living with a luxury lifestyle. It is clear the developer has a refined eye for interiors; using high-end fixtures and fitting alongside a stylish palette, and every surface has been re-built or renewed using the finest materials and craftsmanship, so the results are exemplary. There is a vibrant village community here, so this elegant home would be perfectly suited to professionals who wish for the best of both worlds – between the countryside and the city.

Why you'll like it:
Beautifully renovated with exacting attention to detail; this apartment is a real gem. It sits within a substantial Victorian house which was recently converted into 7 individual apartments, and residing on the first floor, it shares the glamorous Victorian entrance hall complete with classic checkerboard floor tiles and a grand communal staircase.
You enter directly into the open plan living room and kitchen where it is immediately apparent this is a sophisticated apartment. Natural light streams in through two tall picture windows with restored sashes. The ceilings are gloriously high and wooden floors complement the fresh white walls perfectly creating an impressive space for relaxing and entertaining friends and family.
Open plan to the room, the kitchen becomes a sociable space for both formal dining and conversation with guests while you cook. Every appliance has been integrated for you including an oven, hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer, while the utility room is separate on the lower ground floor, accessible from the communal hallway.
Wooden floors make way for plush grey carpet in each of the double bedrooms which have peaceful garden views, and the bathroom is easily accessible with a spacious rainfall shower over the bath and large brick wall tiles in keeping with the modern-Victorian style. There is also a heated towel rails and old-school style radiator which can be found throughout the apartment to warm you perfectly during the cooler seasons.
Hurstpierpoint sits on the cusp of The South Downs National Park and is a hugely attractive village with a plethora of well-established and highly-acclaimed restaurants, cafes and pubs to be enjoyed. The high street is home to every amenity you could wish for and has several independent retailers too, so it is a joy to explore, and you are just a short drive or train ride from the city of Brighton and Hove should you require the larger shops.
Bear in mind:
This apartment comes with a 10-year building warranty, a 999-year lease with a Share of the Freehold, and no stamp-duty payable for first time buyers.
"Hurspierpoint is a fantastic place to live due to its beautiful surroundings and vibrant community atmosphere. These apartments were a labour of love to renovate, and no corners were cut in their development. We just hope the future inhabitants love them as much as we do."
