Built in 1904, this handsome detached period property is a prime example of Edwardian architecture and was constructed by the renowned Connors Brothers. With its generous proportions, distinctive style and excellent, slightly elevated, location on a sought-after road within the highly regarded ‘Warren Area’, it has all the hallmarks of an exquisite family home.
High Lodge is set within established private gardens in a quiet and secluded setting and from its slightly elevated setting enjoys far-reaching views over the across the beautiful Ashdown Forest towards East Grinstead. Inside, the property is beautifully presented and has been extensively modernised, including a fabulous new kitchen and bathrooms. Many of the house’s original features have been seamlessly incorporated into the modern design, including a brick fireplace and exposed wood detailing.
With a light and spacious feel, the property is entered via a porch with curved steps leading to a lovely sitting room with open fireplace, two feature windows and quad-folding doors which open to a fine double aspect drawing room with brick built fireplace and French doors to the garden. The kitchen/dining/family room is an exceptional space, extending to about 36ft and running almost from one end of the house to the other and has a vast island perfectly suited to entertaining and a well-lit dining/family area underneath a large roof lantern. The kitchen is fitted with a vast array of Jones Britain units (KBSA Kitchen Designer of the Year 2019), with a number of integrated appliances including a dishwasher, six-ring hob and a Quooker boiling water tap. In addition there is a pantry with the original marble counter, boot room with extensive storage and a utility room.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms (one inter-connecting), with the Principal bedroom having an en suite bathroom and Juliet balcony enjoying the west-facing views. There is also a family shower room and separate bathroom room shared by two bedrooms.
Aviemore Road is a very highly regarded road in the sought-after and popular Warren area of Crowborough, a network of desired wide and leafy roads. The house is within easy reach of the town centre where there are excellent shopping facilities including Morrisons and Waitrose supermarkets, a variety of individual shops, banks, a Post Office, schools and a sports and leisure centre. Also nearby is the well-known Crowborough Beacon Golf Course. Tunbridge Wells is about 7.5 miles to the north for a further excellent range of shopping facilities and amenities.
The beautifully maintained mature gardens are a particular feature, wrapping around the house and providing ample space to sit and relax. The gardens have a favourable south-westerly aspect and are well stocked and include hedges, areas of lawn, a variety of trees and an impressive Virginia Creeper. A sizeable tarmac driveway leads to a double garage.
