A charming 3/4 bedroom, detached period cottage, with delightful gardens and located on the outskirts of the sought after village of Wisborough Green.
Believed to date in parts from the 1800s, and extended and improved over the years, Hunt Cottage is a charming, period property offering versatile and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. Features of note include wood latch doors, period fireplaces and exposed timbers and beams. The triple aspect sitting/dining room boasts an impressive Inglenook fireplace and exposed beams and leads seamlessly to the conservatory via glazed doors, giving access to the garden. The second reception/family room, with wooden floorboards and exposed beams, is also triple aspect and has a smaller Inglenook with a log burning stove. At the heart of the home is the split level kitchen/breakfast room with farmhouse-style fitted kitchen, electric hob, eye-level oven and Rayburn; the breakfast area has a stable door to the rear garden and access to the utility, which houses the boiler and walk-in larder, and to the integral double garage.
A turned staircase leads to the first floor with triple aspect master bedroom suite with dressing room (which could be used as a further bedroom) and a contemporary-styled en suite shower room. The guest bedroom is also triple aspect with an en suite cloakroom, wooden floorboards and decorative fireplace; and the third bedroom, with fitted wardrobes and shelving, completes the first floor accommodation.
This property has 0.58 acres of land.
The property sits well within its plot and is approached via a private lane to the shingle drive which, along with the double garage, provides ample parking. The delightful, private gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with flower and shrub borders and mature specimen trees; including the unusually named Wedding Cake tree. A paved terrace to the side of the property, adorned by a stunning wisteria, provides the perfect location for outside entertaining and enjoys views over the neighbouring fields. There are two useful timber garden sheds and the opportunity to re-instate a former vegetable garden for the green-fingered!
Hunt Cottage is situated on the south western outskirts of the favoured West Sussex village of Wisborough Green. The village is centred around the traditional village green with cricket square, and is noted for its charming period houses and cottages.
There are excellent local facilities including a village shop and post office, historic church, school and two village inns. The historic town of Petworth, with the National Trust owned Petworth House and Park, lies about 4 miles to the south west, whilst the larger centres of Horsham and Chichester are about 12 miles and 18.5 miles respectively. Horsham and nearby Billingshurst both have mainline rail services to London.
The area is noted for its beautiful countryside, over which there are many miles of walks and cycle paths, including Bedham Common. The South Downs National Park is also nearby. Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf at the nearby Foxbridge Golf Club, Wildwood (Alfold) and the West Sussex Golf Club near Pulborough; polo at Cowdray Park, racing at Fontwell and Goodwood and sailing at Chichester Harbour.
There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools in the area, including Christs Hospital, Seaford College, Farlington School for girls, Pennthorpe and Windlesham House.
From the centre of Wisborough Green follow the A272 west towards Petworth/Midhurst for about 1.7miles, before turning left where there is a signpost for a Public Footpath which will lead to the property.
