Hawkswood forms a stunning property, beautifully remodelled and modernised by the current owners to form a large family home ideal for dual occupancy, with the possibility of maintaining a self-contained annex.
The house, having recently been remodelled, has also seen the electrics upgraded with a new main fuse and consumer units, new insulation and loft ventilation, new ADT Smart Services alarm and smoke/fire alarms, new external doors throughout, new decor using Farrow & Ball colours, new flooring, new external drains and new cylinder and pump.
From the front door, one enters into a large reception hall, with double doors into an open plan sitting/dining room, with sliding double-glazed doors to front and rear, wood burner within a recessed fireplace, and open to the Schmidt designer kitchen, comprising a range of blue cupboards and drawers with white quartz worktops, large Franke butler sink and an oak breakfast bar, an integrated Neff dishwasher, sink and Rangemaster extractor hood, space for a range style cooker and American style fridge/freezer.
The entrance hall has doors to a coat cupboard and a door to a modern shower room, comprising a shower, WC and basin.
From the entrance hall one enters a central hallway providing access to the bedrooms and what is currently the annex.
There is a guest bedroom suite, forming a double bedroom with a sliding door to an en-suite shower room, comprising a shower, WC and basin, and heated mirror.
The main bedroom is opposite and has an outlook across the garden to the front and scope for fitted wardrobes.
There is then a large utility room off the central hallway, with a door to the rear garden and space for several appliances.
There is a stainless-steel sink and drainer and a large airing cupboard housing the new water tank and pump, and large floor to ceiling larder.
At this point in the central hallway, the house can be divided, via a set of doors into what currently forms the self-contained annex. There is a further double bedroom to the rear and a wonderful modern shower room, with a large walk-in shower, WC and basin, tiled floor and window to rear.
Opposite is a double bedroom with the vista over the garden and double doors to the open plan sitting room and kitchen. This double aspect room runs from front to rear, with windows to front and double glazed French doors to rear providing separate access if needed. There is a second Schmidt designer kitchen comprising an attractive range of grey cupboards and drawers, white quartz worktop, stainless-steel Franke sink and integrated Bosch appliances, to include oven and hob, plus a grey designer breakfast bar.
This area could easily become a main bedroom with a large en-suite, as all utilities remain in place and are accessible for a bathroom if required.
Outside, there is a large patio and the gardens to all sides of the property are mainly laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub borders, and hedges and fencing as well as various mature trees. To the west side of the house, there are raised flower beds and a timber workshop and greenhouse.
A decking walkway provides access to the detached insulated studio, complete with French doors to front and under floor heating, forming a perfect home office but is currently being used as an art studio. At the rear of the house is a landscaped garden, and paved pathway around the house. To the north side is the driveway and parking area, with access to the detached double garage with an electronic up and over door and power.
The property is situated about 1/2 a mile from the 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street.
