Property description

Enjoying a rear southerly aspect and set in a semi rural, yet convenient position, Newbury House is a handsome, detached country residence set amongst lovely grounds of approximately 3.53 acres. Having been the subject of a programme of stylish refurbishment and extension by the present owners with technologies such as Cat 5 wiring, Sonos compatible multi room integrated entertainment system and some under floor heating, the house has spacious, well planned accommodation arranged over three floors and takes full advantage of an abundance of natural light. Elegant reception areas with wood burning stoves flow easily from one to the other with French Doors out to the gardens and large leaded light windows. The Study has been fitted with bespoke pull out desks, oak cupboards and shelving by Edmondson, who were also commissioned to create the Kitchen and Utility Room cabinetry topped by granite work surfaces. With French and bi-folding doors, the Garden Room is a light and airy space from which to take in views of the lovely gardens, which has a rear hall beyond and stairs to the Billiard Room.
The first floor is given over to five bedrooms, three of which have en-suite facilities together with a Family Bathroom and a Laundry Room. The Master Suite enjoys the benefit of a large walk-in Dressing Room and En-Suite Bathroom. The second floor has a further three bedrooms – with one used a Study and connecting to a Kitchen – and a Bathroom.

Situation
Newbury House occupies a convenient yet private position approximately 1.7 miles from Wadhurst with its excellent local amenities including supermarkets, post office, local bakery and butcher, character shops, coffee houses and restaurants. The ever popular Royal Spa Town of Tunbridge Wells with its marvellous and eclectic selection of shopping, eating and entertainment opportunities including The Pantiles is approximately six miles away. The area is renowned for walking, sailing and equestrian facilities with the famous Bewl Water Reservoir and Bedgebury Pinetum close by, whilst golf can be found nearby at Dale Hill and Lamberhurst.
There is an excellent choice of good schools in the area at primary and secondary levels, in both the state and private sectors including primary schools in Lamberhurst, Wadhurst and Frant, Sacred Heart at Wadhurst, Marlborough House and St Ronan’s prep schools in Hawkhurst. Senior schools include Uplands Community College in Wadhurst, Mayfield and Bede’s in Lower Dicker.

Outside
The property is approached over a sweeping True Grip resin bonded driveway, on to parking and turning areas in front of the house and garaging. The lovely landscaped gardens have been created to reflect traditional English country garden design with some classical influences included, such as stone balustrading in the terracing and an ornate Renaissance style fountain. Large expanses of lawn are level and sweeping, herbaceous borders tell differing, colourful ‘stories’ depending on the time of year, whilst fragrant rose gardens give way to shrubberies and specimen trees. There is an avenue of dwarf pear trees leading towards the pond and the natural woodland garden beyond. A kitchen garden has been created with tall brick walls enclosing a variety of beds with espaliered fruit trees trained against the walls and a traditionally styled Hartley Botanic greenhouse provides for potting and over wintering.
The garaging at the property has been very well considered and finished to a high standard for classic car storage with insulation, industrial quality porcelain tiled flooring, painted and plastered. Attached to the house is a substantial triple garage, fitted with Bott furniture, a vehicle lift (available by separate negotiation) and dehumidifier outlets. The wine cellar can be accessed here via a spiral staircase. A further detached triple garage is heated and fully alarmed again with dehumidifier outlets.

Additional Information
Agent’s Note – Helicopters may operate from the gardens without planning consent being within the curtilage of the property (as per section 4.4 bha document ‘The Civil Helicopter in the Community – May 2008)
