The cottage has good ceiling heights throughout and offers a harmonious balance between old and new, using quality materials including engineered oak flooring in the hallwayand sitting room, wood-framed bi-fold doors and tasteful double glazing.

The wonderful triple aspect kitchen/dining/ family room features a generous in-frame shaker kitchen with Corean worktops, incorporating a large island. Integrated Neff appliances include a 5-ring induction hob, oven, grill, fridge freezer, and dishwasher. The adjoining utility room has space for a further undermount fridge/freezer and washer/dryer.

The cosy, double aspect sitting room features the engineered oak flooring and fireplace with woodburner. Leading off the sitting room is the former entrance hall, which now provides useful storage or could be utilised as a study nook.

The family bathroom, en suite shower room and ground floor WC all comprise modern white suites. The family bathroom features a P-shaped bath with shower over.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, two with built-in wardrobes.

On the second floor, the attic has been converted into a generous L-shaped study/hobby space with elevated views, whilst retaining a boarded walk-in loft store.

Externally, the cottage comes with a brick-laid, gated parking area and a detached double garage with electric roll-up doors, power and lighting. An internal staircase rises to the first floor which provides another useful converted space with a view to Bewl.

The gardens wrap around the cottage on three sides and are largely laid to lawn, with colourfully planted shrub and flower beds. There are brick-paved terraces to the front and rear of the house, and a separate patio to one side of the garden, perfect for evening dining and entertaining. At the end of the garden is a good-sized garden store, greenhouse, compost area and raised vegetable bed. To one side of the garden is another small garden shed.

Set down a quiet, private lane in the hamlet of Cousley Wood, between Wadhurst and Lamberhurst, the house is surrounded by farmland and woodland and has direct access via footpaths to Bewl Water Reservoir.
