Peace & Quiet abounds. In a highly desired, little-used country lane on the outskirts of this sought-after village and enjoying truly exceptional views over rolling countryside. Almost 7 acres with formal gardens, paddock, woodland and 0.5 acre lake. Spacious and flexible accommodation.
Situated down a little-used leafy country lane, just a 1.5 mile walk to picturesque Mayfield High Street, where a diverse range of shops, restaurants/cafes and services will be found. A more comprehensive range of shops and services will be found in Heathfield, just 5 miles south, whilst the regional centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells is under 10 miles. For the London bound rail commuter, the nearest stations are at Crowborough (10-minute drive) and Wadhurst (15-minutes) drive.
There are four things that will strike the first-time visitor to this delightful home. The first is the peace and quiet the location affords. The next is the presentation; a manicured front garden leads to a deceptively spacious house. The third are the spectacular views to the rear, over the garden to beautiful rolling countryside beyond. Lastly is the land, with equally manicured back gardens designed for entertaining, a paddock and deciduous woodland including a 1/2-acre spring-fed lake. The home also benefits from oil fired central heating, double glazing and features high-quality engineered Oak flooring to the principal reception rooms.
The entrance hall has oak flooring and an oak-faced staircase. Leading off is a linen cupboard, while glazed double doors lead into a large, triple aspect sitting room with a double-sided wood burning stove which also serves the generously proportioned dining room. Glazed double doors lead from both reception rooms into an expansive garden room, with solid roof and full-width double glazed windows affording a superb outlook. A heated tiled floor completes this room. The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys those stunning views and has a vaulted ceiling with exposed roof trusses in the kitchen area, which is fitted with Ivory coloured soft-close "Shaker" style cabinets with black granite worktops, pan drawers and "magic" corner units. Appliances comprise a 1200mm Rangemaster stove with extractor hood over, integrated large fridge, dishwasher, waste bins and full-sized larder cupboard. A central island unit also has granite worktop and breakfast bar, with an integrated induction Wok hob. There is a utility room leading off.
Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom with feature oriel window, a study/bedroom 4 with fitted desk units and cupboards and a shower room, all of which could be used to create a ground floor annexe suite if so desired.
On the first floor is a landing with deep storage cupboard, a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and built-in double wardrobe and the master bedroom suite that enjoys glorious views and has fitted wardrobes and bedroom furniture, together with a large en suite bathroom having freestanding roll-edged bath with claw feet, separate large shower enclosure, WC, wash basin on granite shelf and eaves storage cupboards.
Outside there is a timber-frame garage with power and light point together with loft storage space. The front garden is laid to lawn with flower borders stocked with rhododendrons, azaleas, camelia and roses, together with a raised Mediterranean style flower bed. The back garden has a wide, elevated sandstone terrace, with wide steps leading down to the lawn, which is interspersed with fruit trees. An extensive deck is a superb space to entertain and enjoy the views. Under the deck is a large workshop/garden store, with electricity connected. A large, modern, fully insulated garden cabin with veranda has electricity connected and is currently used as a games room , but could also be used as a studio or office. The gardens and grounds extend in total to just under 7 acres, including an area of paddock and mixed woodland having separate gated access from the lane with a hard-surface track leading through the wood to the 1/2-acre well-stocked spring-fed lake.
