This fine, late Edwardian former Vicarage is situated within the village and is a substantial family house probably dating from around 1910. The spacious interior includes elegant, well proportioned reception rooms; the drawing room having a double aspect outlook with a bow window and an attractive open fireplace. The dining room also has a fireplace with attractive carved surround, a high beamed ceiling and stained glass French doors to a delightful loggia. There is also a family room with an extensive range of fitted bookshelves and a door with stained glass to a side porch. In the breakfast room there is a fitted dresser, shelved cupboards and a Thorn gas fired boiler for central heating and domestic hot water. The kitchen has work surfaces with a sink unit and a walk-in larder with slate shelf and a window. On the first floor there is a part galleried landing with a sky light above. The double aspect principal bedroom is a good size and has a feature fireplace, as do two of the four further bedrooms, and these are all served by two bathrooms. This comfortable family house now provides scope for updating and improvement.
The property is towards the west side of this highly regarded village with its picturesque High Street, local shops, pubs, church and schools, in particular St Leonards Mayfield Girls School and the primary school. Tunbridge Wells is about 9 miles to the north with a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and amenities. Crowborough also has a good range of shops and is about 6 miles to the west.

The gardens are an exceptional feature of the property, providing a very attractive setting for the house with wide areas of sweeping lawn interspersed by a variety of flowering shrubs, fruit trees and evergreens. The garden is well screened on all sides by mature trees and hedges and set away from the house is the detached double garage. In all, just under 0.7 acres.
