The House...

This gorgeous cottage is the epitome of deceptively spacious, boasts a 125ft garden and enjoys what is surely one of the most idyllic locations in Haywards Heath, peacefully positioned on a quiet country lane on the southern fringes of town. There are beautiful countryside views to the front and the rear, and this home would suit any buyer looking for a more ‘semi-rural lifestyle’, whilst retaining all the conveniences of town living.

This delightful home boasts a wealth of retained character including exposed floorboards, sash windows, fireplaces and stripped panel internal doors. These features provides oodles of charm whilst more modern attributes include a brand new boiler and luxury en-suite.

Upon entry you are welcomed by a spacious reception hall with beautiful fireplace. The sitting room lures you in with its wood burning stove, great on a chilly winter’s evening. Glazed double doors interconnect this room with the impressive kitchen/diner. This social space opens out on to the garden, making it perfect for ‘inside-outside’ living during the summer months. There is a breakfast bar, solid wood worktops, ample storage and underfloor heating to keep the toes warm! The utility/boot room is incredibly handy after a muddy dog walk and leads through the cloakroom.

On the first floor, each of the four bedrooms is a well-balanced double. The front two rooms enjoys the most glorious of outlooks over a neighbouring paddock, fields beyond and the South Downs on the horizon. The main bedroom enjoys a focal point fireplace and the a most contemporary en-suite shower room (refitted 2021). The three remaining bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with period style suite and overhead ‘drench’ shower head.

Further attributes include mains gas fired central heating (brand new boiler Jan 2022), mains drainage and newly laid carpets on the first floor.

Step Outside...

The rear garden is superb, extending to an impressive 125ft x 35ft. The paved terrace that is immediately adjacent to the house is great for ‘al-fresco’ dining and the large expanse of lawn is nice and level, great for children to play.

At the far end is an impressive, fully powered timber chalet that is the perfect ‘work-from-home’ space, giving separation from the main house. There are also two useful storage sheds hidden behind the chalet.

There is a pedestrian access across the garden of 1 Hurstwood Cottages.

To the front is a small garden and the residents park on the lane directly opposite the house.

The Location...

Hurstwood Cottages are situated on Colwell Lane off of Hurstwood Lane on the southern fringes of Haywards Heath and is surrounded by open countryside with glorious open views. This location offers a rarely available blend of peaceful rural position with easy links to the town centre with its extensive shopping & leisure facilities.
