About this property

  • Situated on the semi-rural outskirts of the village of East Hoathly, Clock House is an attached Victorian red brick coach house conversion dating from 1889. The house is airy, light and bright, with soaring ceilings on the ground floor and well-proportioned rooms; it is well-presented throughout, with a stylish natural colour palette, stripped wood floors in a number of the rooms, and modern bathroom suites.

    The front door opens to the entrance hall from which stairs rise to the first floor and descend to the basement, lying off the hall is a cloakroom. There are two formal reception rooms: a dual-aspect sitting room featuring a fireplace with weathered oak mantel, set with a Chesneys stove and flanked by ceiling-height fitted shelving, beyond the sitting room is a versatile second reception room which could be a formal dining room, playroom or large study.

    The triple-aspect kitchen has French doors opening to the garden and is fitted with a range of shaker-style units with woodblock worktops, a ceramic butler sink and Everhot range oven; there is space for a larder-style fridge/freezer and a breakfast table.

    A turned staircase rises from the entrance hall to a spacious galleried first floor landing. There are three bedrooms and a limestone tiled family bathroom on the first floor, including the principal bedroom: an elegant, vaulted room with exposed timbers and clothes storage space.

    The basement features original brick arches and has been converted to offer an excellent self-contained bedroom or further reception room, with a slate tiled en suite wet room and utility area, and a stable door opening to the driveway.

    There is a gravelled parking area to the side of the house with space for one or two cars, a gate opens to the part-walled rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with colourful cottage-garden style flower beds and a brick and stone terrace, part covered by timber pergola covered in climbing roses.
