Property description

This fine detached country house with its distinctive timbered gables to the front and rear has spacious accommodation arranged over three floors, now with scope for updating and improvement. Particular points of note include the following. There are attractive outlooks from most rooms over the gardens and with views beyond on the south side. There are two elegant well proportioned reception rooms, the drawing room having French doors to the terrace, an open fireplace with a carved surround and mantle, decorative plaster ceiling and double doors to the reception hall which has a polished wood floor and glazed front double doors with an attractive fan light above. The dining room is over 25’ in length, has parquet flooring and to the side of the fireplace a display cabinet and a door to the study. The large kitchen/breakfast room has a high vaulted, timbered and glazed ceiling and includes a range of cupboards, drawers, work surfaces, and a sink unit etc. There are store rooms with potential for alternative uses and a good size cellar. On the first floor the fine principal bedroom features an exceptionally high ceiling, an ensuite bathroom and an outside door with staircase down to the terrace. Two further bedrooms have wide bay windows and enjoy the views. The top floor is at present arranged as a self contained flat with a kitchenette, sitting room, bedrooms and bathroom.

Situation
The house is set close to the Kent and Sussex border, within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is just over 1.5 miles south east of the attractive village of Cowden. The main towns in the area for shopping and a wide variety of amenities include Edenbridge, about 5 miles, East Grinstead about 6.5 miles and Tunbridge Wells about 8 miles. There are highly regarded private and state schools in the area for children of all ages.

Outside
The gardens and grounds provide an outstanding setting for the house which is approached from the road by a long farm lane to its own private drive. At the front there is parking for several cars and a double garage. A long lawn, with a fine Copper Beech to the side, leads to a three bay open fronted store. The rear south facing garden includes a paved terrace by the house and this leads to wide expanses of sweeping lawn interspersed by flowering shrubs and trees. To the side is a hard tennis court requiring refurbishment. In all, just under two acres.
