About this property

  • Set in a wonderful position with far-reaching views, this former farm building has been beautifully converted to create a stylish family home, whilst enjoying a peaceful, rural surround. Positioned between the sought-after villages of Mayfield and Wadhurst, which has recently been named ‘The best place to live in the UK' by the Sunday Times, Meadow View makes the most of the landscape offered by the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with bi-folds opening to both the south and east.

    Wonderfully appointed with a crisp contemporary finish throughout, this charming light-filled family home enjoys large double glazed window, underfloor heating throughout, easy maintenance Karndean flooring, and quality fixtures and fittings.

    The ground floor living space comprises a high gabled covered entrance porch opening into the reception hall, giving access to a large open plan kitchen/family/dining room, with a modern fitted kitchen and an abundance of skylights with bi-folds opening out to the garden on the southerly side, creating adaptable space for entertaining. There is also a cozy sitting room with a wood burning stove and bi-fold doors out to a flagstone terrace on the eastern side plus a study/bedroom 4 with fitted cupboards.

    The principal bedroom has a delightful outlook and a beautifully appointed ‘Fired Earth' en suite bath/shower room, with bi-folds opening to the terrace. Upstairs there are two further well-proportioned bedrooms with skylight windows, a walk-cupboard and a shower room.

    Meadow View is tucked away at the end of a long driveway approach with electrically operated double gates, within grounds of about 2.31 acres in total. To the front, the gravelled driveway provides ample parking and turning for several cars and there is an oak framed cart-style double garage.

    A wide flagstone terrace spans the rear of the property, accessed directly from the main living space creating a delightful entertaining area, and with a heated swimming pool with a retractable electrically operated cover positioned in a sheltered spot on the south-westerly side.

    The garden curtilage extends mostly to the east, comprising a large area of lawn, a pond and raised vegetable beds. Our client has planted many young trees, including silver birches and a small orchard with a variety of fruit trees. There are several mature oaks in the fields and a copse of conifers by the entrance.

    The two fields are enclosed by chestnut post and rail fencing and mature hedging, with a gate giving direct access to the lane and adjoining the neighbour's fields to the south, providing a delightful backdrop and rural outlook to the rear.

A very manageable property in a location where we have always done very well, tucked away and quiet, between two of my favourite villages to the south of Tunbridge Wells.
