Set at the head of a sweeping private drive, Yew Lodge is a handsome, Victorian house dating from 1891, although there are references to property occupying the site as far back as 959AD. In the shade of the glorious Yew tree from which it takes its name, the house was substantially added to in 1908 and has an external appearance typical of its period with red brick, gables, some exposed timbers and leaded light windows. Although various additions and alterations have taken place over time, on the ground floor much of the early twentieth century, Arts & Crafts style character remains including wall panelling, a fine oak staircase and a variety of fireplaces. Presently run as a thriving private event venue, a large, air conditioned function room with bar and wash room facilities was added in 2010, whilst within the main house fourteen bedroom suites have been created along with two further suites above the function room. Subject to any required building controls, the property presents a wonderful opportunity to grow and enhance the current business plan or to explore purely residential potential.
The property is located just south of Lingfield in Surrey and north of East Grinstead in West Sussex, therefore conveniently situated for Gatwick Airport and road access to the national motorway network. East Grinstead itself is a charming and historic town with a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. Schools in the area include Lingfield College, Brambletye and Ashdown House preparatory schools, Ardingly and Worth. With the beauty of Ashdown Forest within easy reach, sporting facilities locally include golf at Chartham Park and Royal Ashdown Park, year round horse racing at Lingfield Park along with various leisure centres, gymnasiums, rugby, soccer and tennis clubs.
The property is set well back and approached over a long and sweeping drive, which leads to car parking areas and various outbuildings provide storage space. The park like grounds are well laid out, surrounding the property with a marvellous variety of ornamental trees and shrubs, tall, majestic mature trees, herbaceous borders and wide lawns.
