NO CHAIN
The property is located in the centre of the village and has its own private access to the side of the property, leading into the garden with steps up from the garden to your private front door.
The property is now in need of cosmetic enhancement but offers flexible accommodation to comprise two/three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen diner, sitting room, and further reception room if required. Both the sitting room, and the master bedroom enjoy spectacular views, as does the second floor bedroom, as well.
One enters the property into a private hallway with stairs leading to the spacious central hallway in the middle of the apartment. A staircase leads up to the second floor, with an under-stairs storage recess.
The sitting room enjoys a bay window to the rear with the superb views, a fireplace with tiled surround and recessed cupboard and shelving to one side.
The kitchen is at the front of the house, with an array of Oak fronted cupboards and drawers and Formica worktops, and an attractive vista onto the high street. The units include integrated appliances such as a one and a half bowl sink with drainer, four ring gas hob with extractor above, chest level oven and grill and a fridge and freezer. Tiled splashbacks and tile effect flooring. There is a door to the airing cupboard as well as a useful store cupboard.
The dining room or third bedroom is a lovely sized room, again with a vista onto the high street, a former fireplace and double built-in wardrobes/cupboards.
Also on this floor is the master bedroom, with built-in wardrobes and the fabulous views to the rear across the Rother Valley.
The adjacent bathroom comprises a bath with shower over, WC and basin and a window to side. There is a heated towel rail, part tiled walls and tile effect flooring.
The first floor landing is quite spacious, complete with a window to rear and access to a large eaves storage cupboard. The second bedroom is off the landing, providing a dual aspect room with windows to rear and side, both offering superb views, plus a built in double wardrobe, and door to further loft storage.
The bathroom on this floor is built into the gable, so has sloping ceilings yet ample space to stand and comprises a bath by the window, WC, basin and radiator, tiled splash backs and tile effect flooring.
Outside the property has a walled private garden on the south side of the property, forming a truly beautiful and secluded spot, with a patio area, two sheds and further seating area. Central lawns, with flower bed borders and brick paved pathways to the gate that leads to the twitten to the high street and the gate that leads to the parking area, which in turn provides vehicular access to South Street.
The fact that the gardens have walls means it is incredibly sheltered and safe and secure, and the access to the parking is very useful indeed. The garage is one of a block to the rear of the walled garden.
Kestrels is located on the High Street, above a popular cafe call The Pink Cabbage. Mayfield High Street provides a small supermarket, butcher, chemist, grocer and post office.
