An exciting and rare opportunity to purchase a pretty character cottage in need of modernisation and improvement, whilst offering considerable scope for enlargement (STPP) comprising three bedrooms, shower room, two reception rooms and kitchen, plus fabulous views to Bewl Reservoir, whilst enjoying large gardens and a paddock, off road parking and a detached garage, located between Ticehurst and Wadhurst villages.
Hookers Cottage has been privately owned and occupied for several years, formerly with gardens that used to be open to the public. The house has been extended slightly in the past, with a ground floor extension, plus a private gated driveway for off road parking and detached garage.
To the side of the property a door opens to the kitchen comprising wooden base and wall units, worktops with small breakfast bar, tiled splashbacks, chest high grill/oven, 1 1/4 sink and drainer, gas hob and extractor above, boiler, space for washing machine and fridge, wooden panelled ceiling, tiled flooring with windows to the side and front.
Door off from kitchen to the dining room/snug with French doors and windows to the side and rear with exposed beams and cupboard under staircase. Doors off dining room/snug to the family room with impressive Inglenook fireplace with alcove to side incorporating original small wooden hatch to kitchen. A door with patterned glass above opens to the front porch with window to front.
A further door off dining room/snug to lobby/coat room with an original wide latched wooden door with window above, this feature door opens to a small lean-to/garden room with exposed brickwork, concrete floor, windows to side and front with a door to the rear garden. A sliding door from the lobby/coat room to a shower room with basin and cupboard below, shower, WC, tiled walls and Quarry tiled flooring with window to rear.
From the dining area/snug a staircase with handrail leads to the second floor which comprises a double bedroom with built-in wooden wardrobes and window to the front with lovely countryside views over open fields. A small double with built-in wooden cupboards, exposed wooden beam and a window to rear with a door off to staircase leading to the third floor large double bedroom with under eaves storage, window to the side and a large skylight window to the front with amazing views over rolling farmland and woodland to Bewl Reservoir.
Outside there is a small enclosed front garden with mature shrubs with a pathway leading to the front door. On the opposite side of the drive, is an expanse of open garden, although now rather overgrown, with mature shrubs, hedges and trees. Here are several mature Oak trees around a pond, plus access to a further hedge enclosed area which used to form the vegetable garden, complete with former greenhouse. There is also a gate from this area to the fenced paddock, totalling approximately 1 acre.
Behind the property is a small courtyard area, plus the garage and an area which could form additional parking, although is currently overgrown, with shed and summerhouse, backing on to the pond.
The property is located in Wallcrouch with easy access to Wadhurst and Ticehurst. Wadhurst is a very pretty and characterful village with a pretty predominantly period High Street in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which has much to offer.
Wadhurst also offers Churches of various denominations within a good and strong community. Ticehurst also has an array of shops around the central village square, and a gastro pub, The Bell.
From a social point of view there are many choices to be made from Period Inns, Gastro Pubs, Restaurants, Cafes, an Art Gallery and many other Societies and Clubs. From a shopping perspective there is a very good and newly opened local Supermarket and Post Office, a family run Butchers shop, Florist, Chemist, Delicatessen, high quality gift shops, ladies outfitters, an excellent Library and Book shop. Wadhurst also benefits from a very good local Doctors and Dentists.
There is an excellent choice of education from nurseries and primary schools through to secondary schools for both boys and girls in both the private and state sectors. Nearby leisure facilities include football, tennis and bowls, an excellent children’s playground and a Community sports centre. There are also beautiful walks on the numerous footpaths and bridleways that criss-cross the area, the ever popular Bedgebury Pinetum and Bewl Water Reservoir which offers sailing and other outdoor pursuits. Also within 45 minutes of Wadhurst there is the coast with all that it has to offer.
