This attractive detached Edwardian house has been the much loved family home of the current owners for 24 years. During that time they have made many improvements and have kept the property maintained to a good standard.
Inside, the home has a nice feel and all of the rooms are a good size and are full of traditional features such as picture rails, feature fireplaces, high ceilings, deep skirting boards and original panelled doors. There is a cosy sitting room with lovely feature fireplace and box bay window at the front, the separate dining room has access to the bright and warm sun room at the rear, which has also been used as a music room or study by the family, and has direct access out onto the raised, decked terrace. The kitchen/diner is very traditional in style with wooden country style units and a Rayburn range cooker, and also has a utility room to one side. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms as well as the master bedroom and en-suite shower room, plus the family bathroom. A further staircase leads to the second floor with an open plan hobbies area (which could be used as another study or teenagers' lounge), as well as leading to bedroom four.
Outside, the property is approached by a large gravel driveway with plenty of parking for numerous cars, which leads to the single detached garage at the side. The gardens at the rear are glorious with far reaching views over the neighbouring countryside. There is a raised decked terrace with steps going down to the paved sun terrace. There is a mature hedged perimeter and a large lawn, with a further area of lawn at the foot of the garden, ideal for lawn tennis or football. To the sides are a selection of mature trees and shrubs as well as a mature vegetable garden with various beds and a wood shack.
Located on a quiet country lane adjoining open fields, the property is close enough to the village centre of Hawkhurst to be able to walk to it in around twenty minutes. There you will find the wonderful Kino cinema and café, local village shops as well as two major supermarkets - Waitrose and Tesco. For commuting, the mainline station at Staplehurst is approximately 9 miles away and offers services into London Charing Cross and Cannon Street. The property is ideally located for access to the major towns of Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone, and for escaping to the coast at Hastings. For the more active, as well as walking, cycling and horse riding locally, there is easy access to the outdoor attractions of Bewl Water and Bedgebury Pinetum/Go Ape.
Access to schooling is excellent with the renowned Cranbrook School a short distance away. The High Weald Academy is also in Cranbrook. For private schools you have Marlborough House Prep, St Ronans and Dulwich Prep all close by.
