Set in a semi-rural location, a short drive of Mayfield Village and enjoying lovely, far reaching views over adjoining Sussex country side, West Hill is an intriguing amalgamation of a former school infirmary and a stunning contemporary home. Utilising the skills of renowned architect, Sally Mackereth, the property has been transformed by reconfiguring the interiors in a cruciform layout and with the use of oversized double glazed windows and doors thereby opening up the space to create large open plan living and eating areas and giving magnificent views right from the moment of entering through the front door. Underfloor heating with individual room thermostats has been installed throughout with a ground source heat pump providing the power source and a good deal of attention has been paid to insulation. Interiors are styled with cool, sophistication with pale walls, tall ceilings, walnut kitchen cabinetry by Workhaus and Corian moulded bathing/shower facilities.
The property is situated in a beautiful rural location in the High Weald of East Sussex designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house is about half a mile from the historic and picturesque village of Mayfield with its excellent range of local shops and the highly regarded St Leonards Mayfield girl’s school. The Spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is about 7 miles away for more comprehensive shopping facilities and amenities including many major national stores, numerous restaurants and the famous Pantiles.
Train Services: Wadhurst, Frant or Tunbridge Wells main line stations for trains to Charing Cross, London Bridge and Cannon Street (50 – 60 minutes). Road Communications: The A21 is to the north of Tunbridge Wells for a direct route to the M25 national motorway network linking with the M20 for access to the Channel Tunnel.
Sitting within approximately 3.3 acres, the gardens surround the house and include gently sloping lawns and mature trees. To the front, the house is approached via a gravel carriage driveway which sweeps past the house and culminates in front of the outbuilding where there is ample space to park numerous vehicles. Very well established trees and hedging provide a great deal of seclusion and there is a fine area of woodland included within the sale.
To the rear, a wide deck spans the entire width of the house providing an ideal spot for sitting, dining, entertaining and enjoying the lovely views.
