A fabulous local-Architect re-designed contemporary home, enjoying four/five bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms, open plan kitchen/dining space, sitting room, family room, galleried entrance hall, parking and private driveway, tucked away in quiet and secluded position on the edge of Ticehurst village backing on to orchards.
The property forms a beautifully presented four/five bedroom detached house extended and refurbished in a contemporary style, situated on the edge of the village with pretty private gardens backing onto orchards and set down a long private driveway.
The garden house backs onto and has views over adjoining orchards and occupies a quiet setting surrounded by its own gardens and the gardens of adjacent properties, yet still within striking distance of the centre of Ticehurst.
Originally a 1950s detached property, the house has been redesigned by a previous owner and is now clad in Raw Oak with leaded dormer windows to the first floor, and forming a more contemporary partially open plan internal layout, creating a spacious and minimalistic but warm and cosy feel with flexible accommodation now set over two floors. To fully appreciate the care and attention and design detail of the property we highly recommend a viewing.
One enters the property via a contemporary wooden front door to a spacious galleried entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and an under stairs storage cupboard, travertine flooring, skylight, door to a utility room also with travertine flooring, space and plumbing for washing machine and space for a dryer.
The inner Hall has wooden flooring upcycled from a school hall, which also runs throughout the ground floor, and a door to an airing cupboard containing a pressurised hot water cylinder.
The sitting room enjoys oak flooring, and glazed trifold doors opening onto the south facing garden with a sandstone paved terrace and a window to side. There is a multi fuel burner on a slate hearth forming an attractive feature, and a door leads to a study with a window to front and fitted shelving to one wall and oak flooring.
To the other end of the house is the open plan kitchen/dining room with eight glazed folding doors to the rear gardens and the attractive vista to the orchards beyond, oak flooring and integrated sound system.
The kitchen area comprises a range of white gloss fronted cupboards and drawers, with a mixture of stainless steel splashbacks and worktops with a central Island covered in a large marble worktop. There is an inset sink with drainer, Bosch gas hob with two Bosch integrated electric ovens, Bosch fridge and Bosch dishwasher. To the opposite end of the room there is a solid fuel ‘Pitha’ stove with stainless steel flue to the ceiling on a slate plinth.
The family room has a window to side with oak flooring and downlighters and the playroom/bedroom five is on the opposite side of the hallway with glazed double doors to garden and a former window to the side garden (now blocked in).
There is also a ground floor shower room with travertine flooring, large walk in powerful shower and wash basin, floor to ceiling cupboard, WC, giant mirrored wall and half tiled walls.
The first floor enjoys a galleried landing with vaulted ceiling and spotlights. Bedroom one enjoys the vaulted ceiling skylight windows glazed double doors opening to small ‘Juliet’ balcony with views over the garden onto the orchards beyond and has a range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and under eaves storage.
Bedroom two also enjoys a vaulted ceiling with skylight windows and further window and access to a small balcony to the front, plus a door to a walk-in wardrobe, under eaves storage and door to an en-suite bathroom comprising a roll top bath, WC, hand wash basin and a window to side.
Bedrooms three and four have now been knocked together to form one long room, but could easily be split, as both doors to the landing still remain. They both enjoy skylight windows to side as well as Dormer windows and vaulted ceilings.
The family bathroom comprises a wide suite comprising bath, hand wash basin and WC, with tile floor and panelled walls.
Outside the house is approached by a private driveway, with parking bays at the bottom of the drive for several cars. There is gated access to the garden with a gravel pathway with formal box hedging leading to the front door, and around the rear of the house. The front gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a newly sandstone paved terrace with access to the sitting room.
The rear garden is again mainly laid to lawn with native hedges to sides and bordering onto orchards beyond. There is a path leading around the property to a further garden to the side of the house with a large shed, and an external boiler.
