About this property

TENURE: Freehold

In a pretty rural setting bordered by established gardens and an idyllic stream is this attractive detached cottage which once served as a watering hole for local railway workers and miners. Originally built in around 1810 the property has been significantly improved and extended in recent years, with an extensive refurbishment of the d├ęcor taking place in 2018. The front and side elevations have a most attractive brick and timber design, with a porch at the front leading to the accommodation. The ground floor comprises a generous 22ft drawing room with bi-fold doors opening to the garden, a sitting room with wood burner, a study and a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room to the rear. The light-filled kitchen features handmade Harvey Jones units, a large Aga and has excellent storage with space for a dining table and chairs. Completing the ground floor is a separate utility room and a shower room. In addition to a number of outbuildings the property benefits from storage in a cellar. On the first floor there are four good size bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en suite. The three further bedrooms share use of a family bathroom and all rooms have delightful outlooks.

Snape Lane is a quiet country lane about two miles from the popular village of Wadhurst where there are excellent local shops, a supermarket, Post Office, vets, pubs, primary school and secondary school. Tunbridge Wells is just about 9 miles for a more comprehensive range of shops, major stores, schools

has services to Charring Cross, London Bridge and Cannon Street in about 60 minutes. The house is surrounded by beautiful countryside with some wonderful walks available from the doorstep through Snape Wood.

Situated opposite the property across the country lane is a good-size gravel driveway providing ample off-road parking and where there is a detached garage with up and over door surrounded by mature woodland. From here a set of steps proceed up to a large area of lawn where there is a summerhouse and a variety of trees. Surrounding the property itself are attractive cottage-style gardens comprising a lovely front garden sloping down to a lawned area adjoining a delightful brook. With doors opening from the kitchen and sitting room there is a south-facing paved patio area ideal for alfresco entertaining, a further parcel of lawn which wraps around the property to the rear.
