Substantial and well presented modern family home with a well enclosed south east facing garden situated in a pretty rural village.
Situated in a semi-rural position in the sought-after village of Isfield, Nutwood is an attractive Tudor-style modern home built in the early 1980s. The house offers well presented, spacious and versatile accommodation extending to nearly 2,600 square feet; the layout on the ground floor being particularly well thought-out with an excellent flow between the main living spaces, ideal for family living and entertaining alike. The current owners have updated and much improved the property with points of note including the remodelling of the kitchen and utility rooms, two stylish modern bathroom suites, replacement double glazing, Lutron lighting control switches and American black walnut solid wood flooring in the hall and sitting room.
The floor plans give a comprehensive overview of the full extent of the house. There are two formal reception rooms lying off the spacious entrance hall: an impressive sitting room featuring a handsome inglenook fireplace, and a family room with an inset Stovax woodburner. The kitchen and dining room overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of units and display cupboards, with Siemens integrated appliances, plumbing for a larder-style fridge/freezer and ample space for a large dining table; it is served by an adjoining utility room. A study and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom lying off a part-galleried first floor landing, including a superb master suite with dressing room (currently used as a second study) and a luxurious bathroom with suite including a freestanding slipper bath and separate shower. Nutwood is accessed from Horsted Lane via timber five-bar gate which opens to a gravelled parking area with space for a number of cars, ahead of the detached double garage. To the front of the house is an area of lawn, partially screened from the lane by a low brick wall and well-stocked borders; views to the north west take in the charming Lavender Line steam railway.
The rear garden is of particular note, being south east facing and having a peaceful rural outlook. Lying adjacent to the rear of the house is a large stone terrace which opens to an expanse of lawn, well-enclosed by hedging, some mature trees and shaped flower and shrub borders. In all, about 0.34 of an acre.
