Located in stunningly beautiful countryside, with distant views to Darwell reservoir, down a little-used lane on the edge of this highly desired village, this gracious Grade II Listed period cottage has bright and spacious rooms, excellent head-heights and has been beautifully refurbished. Large 1/4 acre garden with potential for extensive off-road parking and garaging (STPP).

Set in stunningly beautiful countryside, down a little-used lane and on the edge of this highly desired village, with glorious views to Darwell reservoir. The area is famous for Brightling Park, a regarded horse racing stud and equally for the various Georgian and Victorian follies, including an observatory, that dot the countryside around. The lanes and footpaths in the area provide miles of unspoilt walking, cycling and riding, with far reaching views in parts down to the South Coast. For the London commuter, Robertsbridge rail station is under 4 miles away.

This gracious, Grade II Listed, refurbished period cottage offers bright and spacious rooms that are awash with natural light and with good head-heights. This home is full of character, with old, mellow brick elevations, exposed ceiling timbers, wide oak floors and an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Heating is via modern "traditional style" oil-filled electric radiators, whilst the bathroom and the conservatory both have underfloor heating.

This classic "roses-round-the-door" cottage has an enclosed front garden with central brick path leading up through lawns to the front door. The large sitting room, a double-aspect room, enjoys a superb view to the front over open countryside to Darwell Reservoir. There are exposed ceiling beams, wide oak flooring, a magnificent inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, original bread oven, salt cupboard and a large cupboard to one side. The kitchen/breakfast room also has wide oak floorboards, colour-washed beams and has ample space for a table and chairs. A range of cabinets have Walnut worktops and incorporate a free-standing Rangemaster Stove, built-in fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. A door leads out to the attractive garden/dining room (added in 2012) from where there is a fine outlook over the back garden, with a door leading out. Completing the ground floor is the bathroom, which has a modern white "cottage" style suite including a bath with shower over.

On the first floor there are two generous bedrooms, both enjoying far reaching countryside to the front. The master bedroom is so big that it could be subdivided to create a bathroom on this floor and plumbing has already been installed.

The gardens are a feature of the cottage, extending to about 1/4 acre and having dog-proof fencing. There is a gravel terrace by the front door with wonderful views to the reservoir. The back garden has an extensive gravelled terrace, with herb garden to one side. The remainder of the formal garden area is laid to lawn with camelia, cherry and other specimen shrubs. A gate leads into the orchard area, where there is a good-sized modern workshop, insulated and with power connected. Beyond is a second, somewhat older shed. Double gates provide access from Brightling Road into the back garden and there is scope to create an area of parking and garaging, subject to planning consents.
