Coming to the market for the first time in over thirty years, set at the head of a private access lane and with lovely views across its own land and beyond, Great Wallis Farm is detached former farmhouse of character. With origins dating back possibly to the eighteenth century with later additions, the house is a marriage of period and twentieth century architecture. Multi-pane sash windows and French doors, wooden flooring to the ground floor and brick fireplaces add character to the accommodation which is arranged over two floors. The ground floor is given over to four reception rooms leading off from the reception hall, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room is furnished with a range of painted wall and floor cabinets and leads out to a boot room and a shower room. Four characterful bedrooms are laid out over the upper level serviced by two bathrooms and a dressing room.
Great Wallis Farm is set off a quiet country lane just over a mile from Mayfield Village. Mayfield is a conservation area and one of the most sought after villages in the area due to its active local community, character property, eclectic array of local shops, quaint public houses and cafes along with the renowned Middle House hotel and restaurant. The ever popular Royal Spa town of Tunbridge Wells is eight miles (to The Pantiles) and has superb facilities from theatres, hotels and nationally known departments stores, to historic sites and artisan shops. For commuters there are fast, direct train services to the City of London and the West End from Wadhurst Station (7.1 miles), whilst the A21 trunk road can be accessed at Lamberhurst or Pembury (approximately 10.5 miles away) connecting with the national motorway network via the M25. The area is renowned for walking, sailing on the famous Bewl Water Reservoir and equestrian facilities, whilst golf can be found nearby at Dale Hill and Lamberhurst. There is an excellent choice of schooling in the area at primary and secondary levels, in both the state and private sectors including primary schools in Mayfield, Lamberhurst and Wadhurst, Sacred Heart at Wadhurst, Marlborough House and St Ronan’s prep schools in Hawkhurst. Senior schools include Mayfield School for girls, Uplands Community College in Wadhurst, Benenden and Bede’s in Lower Dicker.
Approached via a private access lane, to the front the drive sweeps in front of the house and to the garaging. Gardens surround the house and have been landscaped with colourful herbaceous borders, shrubs and mature trees along with terracing to the rear and areas of level lawn. Detached from the house is a brick built garden room which has multi-pane windows to four sides, providing a super vantage point from which to entertain outdoors and from which to enjoy the gardens. The garaging is spacious and includes a store room to the rear with further storage to the first floor, whilst a quaint, detached former stable and a large steel barn with a concrete floor create further workshop/storage/potential for stabling. Paddocks have post and rail fencing with areas of light woodland. A bridle way crosses the land allowing for access to riding and walking trails.
