The Headline Details
Tudor Rocks is a beautiful 5-bedroom home in the charming village of High Hurstwood. Originally built in the late Victorian era, the building has been extended and sympathetically refurbished by the current owners, and now combines beautiful period features with contemporary styling. Arranged over 3 floors with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, an elegant bespoke kitchen and a glorious outlook to both the front and rear, this house has so much to offer its new owners.
To the ground floor the large oak door opens to the main entrance hall, with a through aspect and access to the rear gardens. To the right is the open plan kitchen / diner, fitted with John Lewis of Hungerford cabinetry and quality integrated appliances, and with views to both the front and rear of the property. There is a stable door providing access to the rear courtyard and the double garage. Along the hall are the two further reception rooms, both elegantly styled and with one serving as a formal drawing room, and the second as a cosy TV sung. The large utility room / boot room sits adjacent, and is extensively fitted with bespoke cabinetry providing useful storage. An area for coats and shoes and a WC complete the accommodation on the ground floor.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom with freestanding bath and a wet room. The master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling, views over the surrounding countryside, and an ensuite bathroom, again with freestanding bath.
Externally there is a large gravel drive, accessed via electric gates, providing ample off-road parking and with access to the double garage. There is an area garden, beautifully presented with box hedging and attractive shrubs. The grounds to the rear are very fine, being well established with mature shrubs and trees, all selected to provide year-round interest. The garden has been cleverly organised into various “rooms” and so as well as large expanses of lawns with feature bedding, there are two terrace areas for casual entertaining, one of which is situated under an open sided small bar area, with tiled roof and is integral to the workshop and garden store. The garden backs onto open fields, with countryside beyond. There is ample storage in the form of a shed and further outbuilding.
What We Love About This Property
This is a truly impressive home which meets the demands of today’s modern family with ease and style. The current owners have lived in the house for 25 years, and have extended the property to provide generous and spacious accommodation, and have beautifully refurbished the property throughout. The internal presentation is exquisite, and this first class presentation is combined with a house that has been extremely well cared for over the years.
We love the large casement windows that punctuate many of the rooms and provide open outlooks onto the surrounding countryside and the beautifully landscaped rear garden. The house is flooded with natural light and we love the combination of rural farmland views to the front, and the manicured gardens to the rear. With far reaching views of the countryside beyond, the semi-rural feel is very special.
It is evident that the current owners not only paid special attention to the internals of the property, but also invested both time and money in the grounds. Every inch of the plot has been well-thought through. The approach to the front is practical, meaning that there is ample off-road parking, whilst the grounds that surround it, are utterly beautiful and soften the area. We love the large specimen trees that sit on the boundary. The grounds to the rear do not disappoint, with year-round interest created from the multitude of mature plants and shrubs. Care has been taken to create seating zones to enjoy the sun throughout the day, whilst also enjoying the elegant gardens.
Finally, High Hurstwood is a very popular and well supported village, with a regular programme of events to maintain the strong sense of community spirit. It has a lovely village pub and acres of glorious countryside on its doorstep. And there are plenty of neighbouring towns with extensive amenities within easy reach.
High Hurstwood is a delightful village located between the market towns of Crowborough and Uckfield in East Sussex. It lies on the south-eastern border of the open common land of Ashdown Forest and is within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Both towns offer a lively mix of high street shops, supermarkets and restaurants, with Uckfield also boasting an award-winning cinema. The village of High Hurstwood has a wonderful community spirit with firework displays, Christmas and Summer Fayres and a renowned public house/restaurant – The Hurstwood – which is within walking distance of the property. Buxted station is only 2 miles distant and has a regular service into the City of London with parking facilities available on a daily, monthly or annual basis. Alternatively, it is an easy 14-mile drive to Haywards Heath mainline station which offers fast and frequent trains into London Victoria. There are excellent schools in the area within both the state and independent sectors, the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells is just over 11 miles to the north and the larger, bustling town of Brighton is only 20 miles south.
