Mary Cottage forms a pretty and extended, detached Period cottage right in the heart of Mayfield, yet enjoying a location on a quiet lane, with a south facing garden, off road parking and simply superb views across the Rother Valley beyond.
The current owners have thoroughly modernised the downstairs accommodation, with new plaster to all walls and ceilings, oak flooring, oak doors, and an open plan sitting/dining room complete with a new fireplace including a wood burner, oak bressumer and stone hearth and recessed storage and display areas, providing a crisp, modern yet classical interior.
One enters via the front door under a covered canopy, into the hallway with a door to the right to a study/third bedroom, with a window to front.
The hall continues through the middle of the property, with a shower room to the left, comprising a WC, basin, tiled shower cubicle, slate effect tiled flooring, part tiled walls and two multi-paned windows to side. The stairs lead up from the hallway, with a new oak door and panelled wall to the cupboard beneath.
A further door off the hall leads to the open plan sitting/dining room, with the remodelled fireplace at the sitting room end, with a cupboard to one side with display shelving and recess and opening into the dining room area, which opens onto the south facing garden via multi-paned windows and French doors, and oak flooring.
A door from both the dining area and the hallway lead into the kitchen, which is a bright, attractive room, with an array of shaker style cream-coloured cupboards and drawers, with a wood effect worktop and neutral tiled splash backs and slate effect tiled floor. There are multi-paned windows to side and rear, and an internal window to the hallway, with integrated appliances to include a sink with drainer, electric oven and four ring gas hob, extractor above, dishwasher and space for the free-standing fridge/freezer.
The stairs lead up to the first-floor landing, with a window to side and a loft hatch (not inspected) and access to all rooms. The second bedroom enjoys a multi-paned window to side and wooden flooring.
The bathroom is adjacent, comprising a panelled bath, recess housing the WC and an array of floor to ceiling cupboards, with a further recess housing the sink with cupboards beneath, part tiled walls, wooden flooring and window to front.
The main bedroom is to the rear, making the most of the views across the Rother Valley, with multi-paned French doors leading out to a wonderful first floor decked terrace, with a wrought iron balustrade and the simply spectacular views.
Outside, there is a small front garden with steps down from the front gate to the front door and paved path, all screened by the front hedge. To the side there is access to the rear garden, as well as gravel parking for two cars, with further steps down to the rear of the house.
The rear garden is South facing, hedge and fence enclosed, with a stone paved terrace immediately behind the house, with flower bed borders, and a small wall with steps down to the lawn, a further raised brick patio with flower bed surrounds, as well as an area for a shed.
The property is located on Vale Road, a very quiet no-through lane that leads down to a few other houses and farms, with fields and woodland beyond. Footpaths are very close by and make the most of the location to access not only the fields and woodland, but also the centre of the village.
The 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street is only a hundred yards away. Facilities in the village include a small supermarket, butcher, baker, pharmacy, florist, greengrocers and deli as well as GP surgery, dentist and hairdressers. There are also a couple of cafes and Period Inns, including the renowned Middle House Hotel.
There are pretty churches of various denominations, a flourishing primary school and the well-regarded Mayfield School secondary school. For more comprehensive facilities Tunbridge Wells is 9 miles to the north. Railway stations can be found at Wadhurst (5 miles), Crowborough (6 miles), and Tunbridge Wells. These provide a fast and regular service to London Charing Cross, London Bridge and Canon Street. There is a regular bus service to Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne.
The area provides an excellent selection of both state and private schools. Nearby leisure facilities include tennis, bowls, numerous golf clubs, sailing on Bewl Water and at the coast. The area is criss-crossed with many beautiful walks through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
