5 4

Property located in Colemans Hatch, Ashdown Forest, Tunbridge Wells at 11 miles.

Tenure: Freehold

This quite wonderful and impressive country residence is located within the sought after Ashdown Forest area of East Sussex, with the picturesque villages of Colemans Hatch, Hartfield and Forest row just short drives away. Beyond are the popular towns of Tunbridge Wells and East Grinstead; both offer a wide range of amenities with extensive retail, leisure and schooling facilities that make this region one of the UK's premier residential locations.

The property itself was designed and constructed in the late 1930s to a 'modernist' design that remains highly desirable. The accommodation is stylish and bright with the theme of high ceilings and large windows being consistently applied throughout. Currently the property benefits from five bedrooms served by four bath/shower rooms plus four primary reception rooms that include a magnificent 34 ft first floor lounge with a full width balcony that offers wonderful views to the rear. Additionally, there is a ground floor office (formerly a staff room), a useful basement, which lends itself to use as a wine cellar, and two toilets. The property has two staircases, with the secondary south eastern staircase designed to allow staff to service the residents as unobtrusively as possible.

The property is in good order throughout, yet has enormous scope for extensive restyling affording this unique home the opportunity to become one of the regions foremost residences.

The home sits within an overall plot of around 4.5 acres with the majority laid to parkland style lawns with fine specimen trees and tall hedging and mature shrubbery ensuring the plot retains enormous privacy. At the rear is a large paved entertainment terrace accessed via either the kitchen or family room. Beyond the terrace is the original in-ground swimming pool that does require some attention. Within the grounds is an enclosed tennis court with a durable tarmacadam playing surface. Elsewhere there is an enclosed kitchen garden and a small orchard.

In the north western corner of the plot is an attractive brick built detached outbuilding, that was perhaps constructed as a gardener's store or cottage. This building offers great scope to be converted (subject to planning) into a small annexe or studio.

The property is approached via a long driveway secured behind powered entrance gates. The driveway terminates at a large and level gravelled parking area immediately in front of the main house. Secure parking is provided by the two generous garages that are uniformly positioned at opposing sides of the gravelled drive to the front of the property.

Location & Amenities:

The property and its grounds are found off a private lane within a Designated Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, within the Ashdown Forest. The property offers direct access into the forest and additionally at the rear there is direct access onto the adjoining Royal Ashdown Golf Course. The current owners have historically made arrangements to use the golf course and to 'tee off' from just beyond their access point.

This area is extremely popular for its charming surroundings and its ease of access to the City of London. Just a short drive away are the mainline stations at East Grinstead (Blackfriars and London Bridge) and Cowden (London Bridge), offering commute times to London of under an hour.

Should buyers require schooling for their children, there are exceptional choices within the region in both state and private sectors. There are primary schools in nearby villages plus several prep schools and independent schools in the area. If required, state secondary schools can be found in Crowborough and East Grinstead.
