Description

Mulberry House is a striking character property, being one of four luxury homes within a substantial Edwardian former priory, converted into residential accommodation in the early 1990s.

The unassuming entrance gives way to a unique, substantial and beautiful home which enjoys generously proportioned rooms, impressive ceiling heights and an abundance of light and space with the many character and period features on offer further enhanced by the stylish presentation throughout.
The accommodation is arranged over four floors, with the majority of rooms on the upper floors enjoying a superb South-facing aspect and far-reaching views over the magnificent communal grounds, and beyond, to the rear.

A private front door opens into the entrance hall, leading onto the elegant and impressive drawing room with its parquet flooring, feature fireplace and French doors opening onto the private terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys the view over the wonderful grounds. There is also a formal dining room to the front of the house.
The first floor comprises the principal bedroom with attractive bay window and far reaching views, separate shower room and a further en suite double bedroom. The second floor benefits from two further good-sized bedrooms and a W.C..
In addition there is a significant lower ground floor which can be configured to suit individual needs offering both recreational, home office and utility room.

Outside: In addition to the private terrace, the communal grounds are a major feature, providing a stunning backdrop for the property and stretching down to the South from a Yorkstone terrace fringing the rear of the house, with open countryside beyond and glimpses of Rotherfield Church in the distance. Of particular note is a delightful ornamental lake featuring an interesting stone bridge and surrounded by mature park-like grounds, offering lovely space for enjoyment of the idyllic position.

A long shared private drive from Mayfield Lane leads up to a turning and parking area to the front of Beechlands, providing access to the four properties located within the main house, plus Chapel House and The Old Priory.
