Angels Barn provides flexible and characterful accommodation across two floors, with the added benefit of a detached annex. The barn itself currently comprises a spacious entrance hall with tiled flooring and opening via a beamed walk-way to the open sitting room, complete with faux fireplace, stairs to the first floor, beamed ceiling and walls, window to rear and side, plus glazed doors to side. A wide opening leads to a garden room, overlooking the garden via floor to ceiling glass windows, plus a door to the garden.
The kitchen is accessed from the hall, with tiled flooring, door and window to garden and an array of fitted cupboards and drawers. An open timbered wall leads into a breakfast room, with door to garden and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the garden and Bewl.
Off the kitchen is a useful utility room, with space for various appliances, plus a door to a mud room, housing a boiler for the oil fired heating, and windows and door to the garden with perhaps the best views to Bewl.
On the opposite side of the hallway is a large bathroom, with window to front and side, comprising a bath, shower, WC and basin. There is also an internal door to a further reception room, which could easily form an office or be used as a bedroom. This room also has an external door, which allows this space to be accessed separately if needs be.
The first floor provides a galleried landing with floor to ceiling windows to both sides, and a vaulted roof-space. Currently, there is a mezzanine area, useful for storage, with a pull down ladder.
The first floor provides a master bedroom with fabulous views to Bewl and timbered walls and a vaulted ceiling, plus sliding doors to a walk-in storage area. This room is adjacent to the shower room, comprising a shower, WC and basin, part tiled walls and window to front, plus a door to a large airing cupboard.
To the other side of the landing are two further bedrooms, one with sliding doors to a walk-in storage area, and both with views out across the garden and timbered walls.
The detached annex is a charming converted former Dairy outbuilding, providing a bedroom, sitting/dining space, kitchen and shower room, vaulted ceilings and separate electric heating.
Outside, the house has large gardens and paddocks amounting to around 2.9 acres, with wide expanse of lawn, paved patios overlooking Bewl, as well as formal gardens overlooking the rear garden. here are fruit trees and mature trees, as well as a small sliver of woodland along the side of the garden, adjoining further woodland beyond.
There is a drive providing parking behind a five bar gate from the track which leads up from Claphatch Lane, with a detached double car-port and adjacent garden store/stable.
In general, the house needs updating, principally cosmetic enhancements, but you cannot beat the location! Tucked away backing onto farmland and facing Bewl Reservoir Nature Reserve, this house is about as quiet as one could expect in the South East of England.
The house is located at the end of a no-through single track lane, with the original farm house and twin oast nearby. Claphatch Lane is at the end of Wards Lane, and therefore the house is located directly in between Wadhurst and Ticehurst Villages, with excellent access to footpaths.
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.
