A delightful period cottage tucked away in an accessible rural position adjoining Town Row Green on the edge of Rotherfield village.
A charming unlisted period property coming to the market for the first time in over thirty years and offering potential to upgrade the accommodation to create a wonderful family home in an idyllic positon.
Heathfield Cottage is privately set within gardens and grounds of about 1.68 acres off a long shared driveway over The Green, just over a mile from the centre of the pretty village of Rotherfield and within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Dating back in part to the 18th century, the property is light and spacious with good ceiling heights and many attractive characterful features including the striking carved gabled front elevation, a canopied entrance porch, oak joinery and a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove in the principal reception room.
The adaptable family living space comprises an oak panelled entrance hall, three good-sized reception rooms, a study with bespoke fitted oak furniture, a large kitchen/breakfast room, with a separate utility room off and a light filled triple-aspect garden room.
An oak staircase from the reception hall rises up to a spacious landing giving access to the bedrooms which include a generously proportioned master suite with fitted wardrobes, a separate dressing room and a bath/shower room, two further double bedrooms, bedroom four and a family bath/shower room.
The detached double garage lies to the western side of the house, accessed via a path through the garden and offering additional space, with a first floor games room and a w.c.
The property is set behind a high yew hedge within extensive landscaped gardens providing a good level of privacy and with fields and the open space of The Green lying beyond the boundaries.
A wide paved terrace around the house provides space for entertaining and there are many seating areas for enjoyment of the lovely surroundings. The garden is arranged with meandering walk-ways linking rooms' comprising areas of lawns, topiary features, deep herbaceous and established shrub borders, a water feature, a magnificent ancient yew tree and a stately beech and an archway walk of apples giving access to a productive kitchen garden with raised beds and a greenhouse. A large parking and turning area lies to the front of the garage.
