Description

Situation: Upper Croft is situated on the outskirts of the much sought after village of Wadhurst in a semi-rural location within 2 miles of Wadhurst High Street. The village offers an excellent range of shops and services for everyday needs including a Jempson’s Local store and post office, café, delicatessen, butcher, baker, pharmacy, bookshop, florist, off licence, public houses, as well as a doctor’s surgery, dentist, primary school and the well regarded Uplands Community College and Sports Centre.

For the commuter, Wadhurst mainline station is about 1½ miles distant and provides a regular service to London Charing Cross/ Cannon Street in under an hour. There is a regular bus service and the A21 is also within easy reach providing a direct link to the M25 (junction 5) and the coast. Gatwick Airport is about 40 miles to the west, the Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone is about 46 miles to the east and central London is about 50 miles away. The regional centre of Tunbridge Wells is about 7 miles distant and provides a comprehensive range of amenities including the Royal Victoria Shopping centre, cinema complex and theatres.

The beautiful surrounding countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and includes Bewl Water Reservoir, reputedly the largest area of inland water in the South East, where a wide range of water sports can be enjoyed.

Description: Upper Croft is a substantial and well proportioned detached period house, which dates from 1905 and is set in an elevated position within approximately 1.2 acres of gardens and grounds. The property presents attractive external elevations with twin bays beneath a tiled roof and double glazed windows, and provides spacious and flexible accommodation of approximately 3,034sq.ft, benefiting from period features throughout, including working fireplaces and high ceilings, and also offers excellent scope for remodelling and further enlargement, if required. (nb Planning permission was previously granted to convert the workshop and garage and create what would be a superb kitchen/ breakfast/family room with a master bedroom suite above.)

The accommodation on the ground floor is set around a spacious reception hallway with a feature curved staircase that rises to a galleried landing. There is a double aspect drawing room with French doors leading out to a terrace, a large square bay window enjoying a lovely outlook, and an attractive open fireplace with stone surround. The dining room is across the hall and again is double aspect with a square bay window and open fireplace with a marble mantle and surround. The principal reception rooms both have exposed ceiling beams and lovely original wooden floors which continue into the hall. To the rear of the house there is a double aspect family room, cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room which is well fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units with granite worktops and an Aga. The kitchen enjoys views over the garden and across surrounding countryside. There is also a large pantry with space and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer and a door to the utility room. A rear lobby provides an ideal area for boot/coats and leads to a study/workshop and into the garage. On the first floor the light and spacious galleried landing has doors to all the bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys stunning views out of two sets of windows and has a range of built in wardrobes along with a good-sized en-suite bathroom.

Outside, a five-bar gate opens to a driveway which sweeps around the house to a gravelled area providing parking for several vehicles and leads to the double garage. There is also a detached stable block with four stables that provide excellent storage space. A lovely terrace adjoins the house on two sides and provides an excellent entertaining space and enjoys the stunning views. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are planted with a variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees.
