This outstanding, late Edwardian former Vicarage is situated on the edge of the village and is a substantial family house probably dating from around 1910. The spacious and fully refurbished interior includes elegant well-proportioned reception rooms with many period features and points of particular note include the following:
• An elegant double aspect drawing room with a wide bay window to the front and an attractive feature fireplace as well as an adjacent family room with engineered oak flooring which leads to a cloakroom and door to outside. There is also a study with a fitted cupboard.
• A bespoke Rencraft kitchen with an extensive range of cupboards and drawers, a central island with further drawers below, long quartz work surfaces, double butler sinks and an excellent range of integrated appliances. This leads into a superb dining/sitting area with a delightful wood burning stove and attractive carved surround, a high beamed ceiling and stained glass French doors to a delightful covered terrace. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility room with matching cupboards, a large walk-in larder, space and plumbing for appliances, secondary cloakroom and door to outside.
• On the first floor there is a part galleried landing with a sky light above. The double aspect principal bedroom is a delightful room with outlooks over the garden, a feature fireplace and an extremely well fitted bathroom. The guest bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and lovely shower room and the three remaining double bedrooms are all a good size and well served by a further shower room.
The property is towards the west side of this highly regarded village with its picturesque High Street, local shops, pubs, church and schools, in particular Mayfield Girls School and the primary school. Tunbridge Wells is about 9 miles to the north with a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and amenities. Crowborough also has a good range of shops and is about 6 miles to the west. Further schools in the area include Skippers Hill Preparatory School at Five Ashes and Bedes Public School at Upper Dicker. Recreational amenities include sports and leisure centres in Crowborough and in Tunbridge Wells where there are also a cinema complex, theatres and numerous restaurants.
The gardens are an exceptional feature of the property, providing a very attractive setting for the house with wide areas of sweeping lawn interspersed by a variety of flowering shrubs and evergreens. The garden is well screened and landscaped to a contemporary design and set away from the house is the detached double garage with parking area to the front. In all, just under 0.7 acres.
