A beautiful Grade II listed timber framed hall house requiring refurbishment, in Cranbrook School catchment (2023).
Hawkhurst Place is an impressive timber framed former hall house which is believed to date mainly from the mid 15th century, altered in the 16th century and with later 19th and 20th century additions. Set back from the road amidst its established lawned gardens totaling 0.70 of an acre, this fine example of medieval architecture is now coming to the market for the first time in 47 years.
The principal accommodation is arranged over two floors and in addition there is a useful one room cellar accessed via brick steps, a large un-boarded attic with natural light and crown post and a separate lower boarded loft for storage. The property retains an abundance of exposed oak timbers and beams and an inglenook fireplace to the sitting room.
Reception rooms are of good proportions and comprise a sitting room, a formal dining room with attractive panelling and ornate carved panels, a flexible dual aspect study/family room and a breakfast room. The kitchen has cupboards, a four ring gas hob, an oven, freestanding dishwasher and fridge. There is also a utility room and ground floor cloakroom.
On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms and a dressing room that are served by two bathrooms. Oak steps lead up to the unconverted substantial attic, spanning the width of the house.
Hawkhurst Place is accessed over a gravel drive, which culminates in an area of parking to the side of the property, the two double garages and a store. The gardens feature lawns with rose borders, a pond, an old well and mixed hedging and fencing to the perimeter.
