THE LOCATION The hamlet of Turners Green is situated just off the B2096 about four miles east of Heathfield. There is a public house in the adjacent hamlet of Three Cups and local shops in nearby Rushlake Green and Dallington. Heathfield provides a wide range of facilities, with three supermarkets, many shops, banks, a library, Post Office, restaurants, both primary and secondary schools and a leisure centre. The nearest rail station is at Stonegate (about 9.5 miles) with main line services to London Bridge, Waterloo, Charing Cross and Cannon Street.
The major regional centre of Tunbridge Wells is about 20 miles to the north and provides extensive shopping, leisure and recreational facilities. The historic town of Battle is about 8.5 miles to the south east, offering a range of shops, schools and an alternative rail option. The coastal towns of Bexhill and Eastbourne are about 14 & 18 miles respectively.
The area is well served by a variety of state and private schools for all ages. The surrounding countryside is excellent for walking and riding and there are numerous golf courses in the vicinity.
THE PROPERTY This charming family home has been extended and much improved by the current owners in recent years. On the ground floor the two main reception rooms have been supplemented by a single storey extension across the rear of the building to create a 27'2' dining room/family room that is open to the attractive fitted kitchen. There is a utility room and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a tastefully refitted family bathroom, with the entire second floor taken up by a very spacious master bedroom and second bathroom adjoining. Most of the rooms have an outlook towards open countryside or woodland.
A particular feature of the property is the unusually large double width garage with electrically operated doors and exceptional storage facilities. Above, and approached via an external staircase at the rear, is a very useful air conditioned 22'5 x 11'11 studio/home office that incorporates a kitchenette.
The property sits in a plot of circa 0.45 acres which is mostly lawned, with mature trees, shrubs and hedgerows, a decked area and a terraced area.
