This outstanding and very distinctive detached family house was built in the early 1960’s in this attractive Georgian style. The house enjoys delightful outlooks to front and rear particularly from the first floor and includes a number of points of particular note some of which are:
• The reception hall with its two oval windows either side of the front door, and the delightful staircase rising to the galleried landing creates an immediate impression on entering the house.
• The sitting room is an elegant well proportioned room with an open fireplace with a fine carved surround and mantle. There is a wide bay with deep windows overlooking the front garden, and windows to the rear. Recessed display shelves with down lighting and cupboards below are either side of double doors to the dining room which has two windows overlooking the rear garden.
• From the sitting room a door leads to the garden room which has outlooks on two sides and double doors to the terrace, a further door leads to the study which has a double aspect outlook and a further door to the garden.
• The Rencraft kitchen/breakfast room has an integrated Neff refrigerator Neff dishwasher and extractor unit. It has marble title flooring and is a good size, with long blue granite work tops on three sides with cupboards and drawers and inset sink, Indesit 5 ring range cooker with hood/extractor above with cupboards either side, plumbing for dishwasher, waste bin cupboard and an excellent oak island unit with further cupboards and drawers. Adjoining is a large utility room with a door to the garage.

Approached through decorative iron gates and standing on high ground, well back from the lane, Fairhill adjoins fields and enjoys views to the front and rear. The house is set in Coggins Mill a hamlet on the edge of the renowned village of Mayfield with its attractive High Street and many fine period buildings. There is an excellent range of local shops, pubs, church and the well known Mayfield College Girls School. Tunbridge Wells is to the north for comprehensive shopping facilities and recreational amenities including a cinema complex, two theatres, numerous restaurants etc. The area is well served by schools both private and state for children of all ages.
A sweeping drive through the decorative iron gates, and flanked by lawns, leads up to the house and old York flagstone paths through a beautiful rose garden lead to the front door and continue around the house. There is a long hedge to the front with further lawn beyond down to the lane and with a small wooded area to the side. The rear garden comprises mainly sweeping lawn with trees to either side and a further long hedge bordering the adjoining field.
