VENDOR SUITED
The property forms a charming property within a fabulous private setting, with lovely landscaped gardens and wonderful views across the Rother Valley. Ample parking at the end of a long private driveway with garaging and store. The house and gardens enjoy an incredibly peaceful location, despite being only a few hundred yards from the middle of the village.
From the driveway, a gate and path leads to the side of the house, with a rear door to the useful utility area, complete with window to front, central heating boiler and control panel for the photo-voltaic panels.
An opening leads into the inner hallway, with a door to a cloakroom, and a useful mud room with a sink opposite. There is a further door back to the entrance hall with the principal front door and oak staircase to the first floor, with large leaded light and partly stained-glass window to the front.
All the main rooms face the rear over the garden and the views beyond, with a small rear extension providing a wide link across the rear of the house. The sitting room is a charming room, with a stone-built fireplace, exposed timbers and parquet flooring. There is a fabulous curved bay window forming an additional seating area, with views over the garden.
This area links to the dining room, which also has a door to the hallway, and glass door and window to the rear garden and patio. Adjacent is the kitchen/breakfast room, arranged as two areas, with the table and chairs by the window overlooking the rear garden, and an array of cupboards and drawers having the benefit of a window overlooking the side garden and the path from the driveway. The kitchen also has tiled splash backs, integrated appliances and ceramic sink with drainer, and a door to the walk-in larder cupboard, plus a further door to the hallway.
The first floor comprises an open landing with oak balustrade, large store/cupboard and three double bedrooms, all of which enjoy the views. The master bedroom has an array of fitted wardrobes.
The bathroom comprises a white suite with a WC, basin and bath with shower over and shower screen, tiled walls, radiator with towel rail and a window to side.
Outside, there is a driveway leading from Vale Road to a parking area in front of the two garages, plus a workshop/garden store. To the front of the house, there is a small area of garden which also has pedestrian access to Vale Road. This area of garden has a brick path to the front door, paved path around the house and has a gravel area for ease of maintenance to one side and a lawn to the other, whilst beyond the lawn is a small sandstone wall, beyond which is a greenhouse and shed.
The rear garden is a delight! From the paved garden terrace, a wonderful seating area, your eye is drawn out over the wide panoramic view leading straight down over the lawn and the horizon beyond. Brick steps lead down from the upper lawn, to the pond area with flower bed borders. An expanse of lawn beyond, with a number of maturing specimen trees and shrubs to either side, all enjoy views and the peace of surrounding gardens and paddocks.
The property is located on Vale Road, a very quiet no-through lane that leads down to a few other houses and farms, with fields and woodland beyond. Footpaths are very close by and make the most of the location to access not only the fields and woodland, but also the centre of the village.
The 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street is only a few hundred yards away. Facilities in the village include a small supermarket, 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 secondary school. For more comprehensive facilities Tunbridge Wells is 9 miles to the north. Railway stations can be found at Wadhurst (5 miles), Crowborough (6 miles), and Tunbridge Wells. These provide a fast and regular service to London Charing Cross, London Bridge and Canon Street. There is a regular bus service to Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne.
The area provides an excellent selection of both state and private schools. Nearby leisure facilities include tennis, bowls, numerous golf clubs, sailing on Bewl Water and at the coast. The area is criss-crossed with many beautiful walks through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
