In a stunning and tranquil rural setting, "away from the madding crowd" and with charming views over the surrounding countryside, this detached three bedroom cottage enjoys 4-acre garden and semi-woodland.
Set within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding countryside is renowned for its lovely wooded and undulating scenery. Broad Oak village is under 2 miles away and has a general store, post office and gym. Heathfield High Street is 3.3 miles and offers an excellent range of services, shops and amenities including Waitrose. The regional centres of Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells and Lewes are all within 20 miles away. There are regular train services to London from Stonegate station (London Bridge from 59 minutes)
In a stunning, tranquil and rarely found rural setting, 0.6 mile down a shared private lane, this is the first time in over 60-years this former gardener’s cottage has been on the market. Apart from the location, land and rural views afforded from nearly every room, this charming property also benefits from PVCu double glazing, oil fired central heating with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and private drainage.
The property has been significantly extended and refurbished in more recent years to provide a unique home but does afford the potential for further enlargement for those seeking to create their own "grand design".
A glazed entrance vestibule with tiled floor and useful storage cupboards leads into the entrance hall, which has a tiled floor and stairs up to the first floor. A comfortable, double aspect sitting room shows an attractive fireplace with marble surround, metal Victorian style grate and polished granite hearth. The dining room has French doors set into a bay window that lead out to the gardens, together with a fireplace having marble surround. A wide opening lead into a striking contemporary 2-storey orangery, which shows Italian tiling to the walls and floor and French doors leading out to the gardens set into three walls.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of cabinets, with black granite worktops and breakfast bar incorporating twin under-set sinks. There are numerous "pull-out" larder and storage cupboards, pan drawers and a corner carousel, whilst integrated appliances include two high-level ovens, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and induction hob with cooker hood over. Bold wall tiling and a part-glazed roof complete the modern-day feel to the room. A rear hallway has a door to the entrance vestibule, cloakroom and bathroom which has bath and separate shower enclosure.
The first-floor rooms all enjoy that "gardeners’ cottage" feel, with part semi-vaulted ceilings and engineered oak flooring. There are three double bedrooms and a cloakroom, with the double aspect main bedroom having a fully enclosed glazed veranda with a glazed roof.
The gardens and grounds extend in all to approximately 4 acres, including a parcel of light woodland over the track. Wrapping around the house are formal areas of garden with lawns having flower and shrub beds and borders, stocked with a wide variety of specimen plants including camellia, hydrangea, azalea, flowering cherry and rhododendron, together with a splendid magnolia tree. Areas of light-woodland are under-planted with thousands of daffodils giving a "sea of colour" in the spring. There are two natural ponds, one with two weeping willows, the remainder is set out as light woodland with meadow grass under. There is a garage and workshop/shed.
