Stonewalls forms an often sought, yet seldom found detached bungalow, enjoying an elevated and central, yet private location in the heart of this popular village.
The house is now in need of modernisation, yet has had the benefit of some replaced windows and an overhauled roof. It is considered that there is ample scope to add to the property, with a garden that surrounds the property, subject to any necessary planning consents.
The property is approached via a shared, but privately owned footpath (shared with one other bungalow) off West Street. There is space for a vehicle off road in a private drive area in front of the garage which faces onto West Street.
The property is then accessed via a front door into a spacious hallway, with parquet flooring and access to the sitting room, which is an attractive, open space, open to the sloping roof above, with parquet flooring, a fitted rug and a fireplace. There is a large glazed window to front. Open to the sitting room, and on the main level is the dining room, again with parquet flooring, open to the roofline and a door to a small lean-to conservatory, which looks out over the larger part of the garden.
The dining room has a door to the kitchen, which comprises a range of original units, vinyl flooring and tile effect wall coverings, integrated sink with drainer, window to rear looking out over the rear garden, and space for several appliances. There is a further door to a utility area, with window and door to rear garden, and further cupboards, including one that houses the immersion heater.
Also from the kitchen, a door returns to the entrance hall, with doors to the front facing bedroom, which has lovely views across West Street and over the valley beyond. The rear bedroom is also a double, with window to side and a door to an en-suite cloakroom, comprising a WC and basin.
The bathroom is to the rear of the property, with a bath, WC and basin, window to rear and part tiled walls.
Outside, the gardens surround the house. The front path leads from West Street to the two bungalows, with a gate and picket fence forming the boundary. Steps lead up to the front door, with an area to the front giving way to a paved patio area, from which one can enjoy the views, surrounded by flower beds for privacy. A pathway leads around the house, with the right hand side of the property enjoying flower beds and border hedge/shrubs, the rear garden laid to lawn, with mature shrubs, boundary fence and 2 sheds, and the left hand garden mainly laid to lawn, with a large flower bed.
There are several fir trees to the front of the property, providing screening, and the garage is located below the picket fence, at road level, with an off road parking space to the front. The neighbours have an adjoining garage, also with a parking space to front.
The property is situated just about a hundred and fifty yards from 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street. 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 St Leonards Mayfield School secondary school.
