This is one of our Country Houses
With superb, far reaching views over the adjoining Sussex countryside and set in a semi rural, yet convenient position, Sweethaws Grange is a handsome country house dating from approximately 1926. Displaying external elevations of part brick and render with multi pane windows and tall brick chimney stacks, the house occupies a commanding position at the head of a tree lined drive alongside Crowborough Beacon Golf Club. Internally the accommodation is of generous proportion and is arranged primarily over two floors together with attic rooms and storage with potential, on the second floor. Ceilings are high and windows large allowing for views over the gardens and beyond, doors are panelled and there are moulded architraves, coving and period fireplaces.
There are three gracious reception rooms including an elegant Drawing Room with a carved wooden fireplace, tall windows and French Doors. The Sitting Room has a dual aspect and fireplace with wood burning stove, whilst the Dining Room has a built-in china cupboard, fireplace and a second door connecting to the inner hall. The Kitchen is comprehensively furnished, with a range of wall and floor cabinetry and a walk-in larder with slate shelving, and also has a four oven Aga.
The first floor is given over to four bedrooms and Bedroom Five/Study which are served by two bathrooms – one of which is en-suite to the Master Bedroom – and a Shower Room. The second floor is accessed via a staircase and has two attic bedrooms, at present used as games/hobby rooms and two large walk-in storage rooms, which have the potential to convert to additional accommodation subject to any necessary planning regulations.
Detached from the main house is a delightful Cottage which provides excellent ancillary accommodation and is well appointed to provide a Reception Room, Shower Room and Kitchen on the ground floor with two Bedrooms and a Bathroom.
Offering a private and sheltered outdoor space is a sheltered terrace overlooking a stream and the woodland beyond.
Sweethaws Grange is set in a marvellous location close to Crowborough Beacon Golf Club approximately two miles to the south west of Crowborough town centre with its excellent selection of supermarkets, banks, building societies, cafes and restaurants. The historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells lies approximately nine miles to the north and has a large selection of shops, theatre and restaurants. Schools in the area include primary schools in Crowborough, Beacon Academy along with Danehill, Cumnor House, Holmewood House and Ashdown House preparatory schools.
The property is approached over a long sweeping driveway through an avenue of Norwegian Maples under planted with a variety of Spring flowering bulbs, which in turn leads to a parking and turning area in front of the house and Cottage, continuing on to service the outbuildings.
The landscaped gardens are a feature of the property and have been designed to create year round colour. Employing specimen trees including three types of cedar, firs, oaks, Japanese maples, a mature tulip tree and a majestic Wellingtonia, together with flowering shrubs such as camellias, hydrangeas, azaleas and rhododendrons, the gardens also include terraces of level lawn with herbaceous borders with low stone walls. Screened by hedging, the paddock extends to the south and has a kitchen garden with a well-established asparagus bed and a soft fruit cage to one side, along with a former tennis lawn. The woodland area is a marvellous natural environment and is separated from the gardens by a series of streams and ponds with small waterfalls and featuring two Japanese style bridges. Outbuildings include various log stores, a greenhouse, a double bay open barn style Garage and a chalet style log cabin with double glazed windows and power connected.
Oil fired central heating and hot water; shared Private Drainage.
