About this property

  • Dating back to the 19th Century, with more recent extension added by the current owner, this stunning family home benefits from the wonderful proportions common to Victorian properties, together with high ceilings and period features.

    Set in an elevated position, the property is conveniently located just behind the High Street in Wadhurst next to the pretty church of St Peter and St Paul, which itself dates in part to the 12th Century. The sitting room, to the rear of the house, being triple aspect takes full advantage of the setting with outstanding views across farmland towards Bewl Water, as does the principal suite above. The remaining reception rooms and majority of bedrooms also benefit from far reaching pastoral views.

    Ancillary accommodation is provided by both the two bedroom single level annexe with access onto its own terrace and walled garden, and the pretty two bedroom Clavers Cottage, again with its own paved seating area and garden and detached garage.

    Approached over a sweeping tree lined drive from the High Street, there is ample parking at The Lodge, with triple bay carport in addition to the protected courtyard created between the house and ancillary accommodation.

    Further outbuildings include The Coach House with two stables with attached tool shed and workshop and store rooms over, greenhouse and pergola.

    The gardens and grounds are exceptionally private and amount to some 5.25 acres. Gently sloping away from the house the park like grounds to the south east beyond the paved terrace running along the rear and side of the house, are an ideal location from which to enjoy the view whilst entertaining.
