The house was built by the current owners over thirty five years ago, and enjoys the most fabulous of locations, with stunning South Westerly views to the rear and yet within a few minutes of the amenities on hand in Wadhurst.
Whilst in need of modernisation throughout, the house is perfectly habitable, with double glazed windows, a relatively new gas central heating boiler and wonderful wood burning stove.
The house has a front door under a covered recessed porch to an entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor. Off the hall is a downstairs shower room/utility room comprising a shower, basin and WC, plus space and plumbing for appliances and window to front.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a good sized room, with views to the rear and further window to side. There is an array of cupboards and drawers, complete with worktops and integrated sink with drainer, plus space for a dishwasher and a fitted two oven Aga. Off the kitchen is a walk-in larder and a door to the boot room, with door to side, cupboards and wall mounted gas central heating boiler and sink.
Opposite the kitchen is a dining room, which also has the views to the rear, whilst the triple aspect sitting room beyond has views via glass French doors to the rear garden, plus a brick fireplace with wood burner.
The first floor comprises a landing space, with sky light above, with doors to each bedroom. Each bedroom faces the rear with views over the countryside beyond, with the master bedroom enjoying a walk-in dressing room and the second bedroom having a large built-in wardrobe.
The two smaller bedrooms also have fitted wardrobes with sliding doors. The family bathroom is to the front of the house, with bath and shower above, WC and basin, skylight and part tiled walls.
Outside, there is so much scope to further extend or enlarge (subject to the necessary consents) with a tandem driveway by the boot room, and ample scope to create a larger driveway to the opposite side of the house. There is even space to add a garage, subject to any necessary consents.
The front gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a Berberis hedge to front and some fruit trees to side, and vegetable garden beyond. The rear gardens face South West, and overlook the open farmland beyond, with fruit trees, Silver Birches and siding on to a small pond. Please note, the garden due to be extended to square off and enlarge the garden in line with the neighbour's fence.
Birchcroft enjoys an enviable location, being within 350 yards of shops and Uplands, yet enjoying such spectacular views across the High Weald AONB.
