2 Richmead Gardens forms an unusual, quirky property, right in the heart of the village, enjoying a cul-de-sac location, backing onto and enjoying spectacular views over the open fields and farmland beyond.
The house was built in the 1970s, and as such, has large windows for the views, and also for sunlight to stream in. From the front, it would appear to be a bungalow, but from the rear, it is very much a two storey property, and indeed the roof space has lapsed planning consents to convert. That said, there is no need, really, as the house is already a good size.
One enters via the upper level front door, adjacent to the driveway and garage. The entrance hall is a bright room, with window to side, stairwell to the lower floor and access to the double aspect sitting room, with windows to front and rear, feature fireplace and stunning elevated views across the Rother Valley. There is an opening to the dining room, again with the views, plus a further door to the hall and opening to the kitchen.
The kitchen has a large window to take in the views, and an array of oak cupboards and drawers, double sink with drainer, four ring gas hob, chest level oven/grill, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, tiled splash backs and space for further under counter appliances if required and under floor heating with travertine tiled floor.
Off the hallway is an airing cupboard, with a hot water tank which is heated via the boiler and solar panels on the roof. Further along the hall is a modernised cloakroom, with WC, basin, tiled floor and part tiled walls.
Downstairs, there is a generous master bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, dressing table and further fitted cupboard. The window provides a fabulous view, and a door leads into the modernised en-suite bathroom, comprising a bath with shower over, shower screen, WC, large basin, cupboards, towel rail, window to side and tiled floor.
There are two further bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, and one with the views to the rear, and one facing the front of the house. Off the landing is a modernised shower room, with beautiful tiled walls and floor, walk-in shower, WC and basin, new lighting and cupboards and under floor heating.
This floor also provides two further reception rooms/offices/occasional bedrooms, with the rear facing room enjoying sliding doors to the rear terrace and gardens and the views, space for a desk and fitted cupboard, whilst the front facing room has its own door to the front, windows and an internal door to the utility room, with a range of further units, space for appliances, sink and window and door to the side garden.
Outside, the property is approached via a private driveway to the garage with an electric up and over garage door. The driveway extends across to the front door, and there are steps down to the lower floor, and pathways that lead around the house to the rear garden.
The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and arranged to make the most of the views. Immediately behind the sliding doors from the garden room/office is a raised, paved terrace. Adjacent is a gravel area which houses a table and chairs and also has the views. There are flower bed borders, lawned area beyond with a summer house at the end of the lawn. Steps lead down to the lower area of lawn, with a further shed and a general garden store area which has been screened. The garden is full of beautiful trees and specimen shrubs, including red Acers, Magnolia and fruit trees.
The property is situated in a tucked away location on the level to the High Street with the 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street just about 1/4 of a mile away. Facilities in the village include a small supermarket with post office, 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 for Girls. For more comprehensive facilities Tunbridge Wells is 9 miles to the north.
