The house enjoys ample off road parking and a carport with office above, all within good sized gardens and striking distance of shops and the station. The Vendor also re-roofed the house, as part of the loft conversion, and has installed a 4000 gallon water recycling tank for external taps and the fish pond. There is subtle lighting, LED lights and motion sensor lights throughout the house as part of a re-wire, plus new gas central heating and double glazing throughout. There are electric gates, both vehicular and pedestrian to the front too.
One accesses the house via an entrance lobby, complete with coat cupboard and further door to the open plan kitchen/dining room. This room has just been refitted to comprise a range of gloss white cupboards and drawers, along black granite effect worktops, with integrated one and half bowl sink with drainer, range style cooker with stainless steel splash back, dishwasher and space and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer, wooden flooring that runs through to the breakfast bar and the dining area beyond, with two windows to side and glazed bi-fold doors to the side garden.
A part oak and glass door leads into the hallway, with stairs leading to the first floor, airing cupboard, oak and part glazed door to the sitting room, with open fireplace, original bay window with the views, further window to side and glazed doors to the terrace.
Also on the ground floor are three double bedrooms, one with a matching bay window with the views and fitted wardrobes, plus a family bathroom, separate WC and a utility cupboard with space for washing machine, tumble dryer and storage.
The first floor comprises an excellent master bedroom with velux windows to front and rear, attractive sloping ceilings, with a raised up-lit panel, en-suite shower room with motion lighting, velux, shower cubicle, WC and basin, plus a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room.
There is also an L-shaped bedroom, with velux and dormer window, and access to cupboards and eaves storage.
Outside, a former garage was removed to form a carport with an enclosed stairwell leading to an office, with WC and fitted kitchen, and glazed windows to a 'Juliet Balcony' with the views across Wadhurst. This room is currently used as an office, but could easily form a play room, or indeed part of an annex, subject to any necessary planning consents.
The gardens have been comprehensively landscaped, with an area behind the carport dedicated to a levelled, fence enclosed easy maintenance area, with seating area and AstroTurf. It is this area that has direct access to the kitchen/dining room.
The front garden has also been levelled with a sleeper retaining wall, with steps down to a further area of lawn, all hedge and fence enclosed, with timber shed, concrete base and tiled roof. There is also a further matching shed behind the house and a similar one housing the pond filtration system. The pond is wall enclosed and approximately 5' deep, containing several Coi Carp and Sturgeon, which could be retained.
The terrace is a joy, with sunshine almost all day, clear and obscure glass ballustrade, tiled base and excellent views across South West Wadhurst.
