EPC Rating: D.
This delightful late 1920s family house with wonderful mature gardens and grounds has only been on the market twice since 1951. It is well presented and thoughtfully up-dated for modern day living, without spoiling the authentic feel.
Features include an oak turn staircase with galleried landing and the original interior doors, whilst downstairs the glazed doors allow the flow of natural light and have been slightly altered by our clients after seeing the work of Austrian architect, Adolf Loos, a pioneer of modernism. There is an original fireplace in the breakfast room. The study has a recessed cupboard (a former larder with the original meat safe) and our clients have added a lovely glazed extension here, creating a garden room.
The modern dual aspect kitchen is semi open plan to the breakfast room with oak flooring and the sitting room has two distinct areas and an open fireplace.
There is access out to the rear garden onto a small south-west facing veranda, which is a lovely sun trap, with an pull-out canopy providing shade. This leads onto a Yorkstone and brick terrace spanning the rear of the house, with extensively planted beds bordering the lawn and a providing a wonderful space for outside dining.
The bedrooms all enjoy a pleasant garden outlook, with the ones to the rear having lovely views. One of the smaller bedrooms has a charming and unexpected walk-in cupboard with a small window.
The rear garden is secluded and exceptional in structure and planting with established shrub and herbaceous borders and an outlook up to Mayfield village to the north-west. It gently slopes away from the house, initially with a formal lawn which is hedged and leads through to a wild flower meadow, which in turn descends to an area of woodland with swathes of bluebells and culminating with the stream at the bottom. Everywhere, it's a delightful changing picture throughout the year making for a truly lovely setting.
Tucked away to one side is a terraced vegetable garden, together with outbuildings, including a mower shed/workshop, two further sheds, a wood store and a tool shed. To the front, the garden is hedged and planted providing good seclusion and there is a single garage off the driveway.
