Characterful and spacious family home in this charming hamlet, under two miles to Wadhurst mainline station.
A handsome and characterful family home dating back to the mid 1800s and offering a wonderful opportunity for some further enhancement.
Originally a small private "dame school" run by women to educate the local children, the Old School House has been reconfigured over the years to create a spacious family home and enjoys a lovely semi-rural setting. The garden provides a lovely backdrop on the south westerly side, with a wide terrace flanking the rear.
The accommodation is well proportioned throughout being split-level and arranged over three floors. The ground floor living space has been created from what was the original undercroft, with the formal front approach providing entry to the first floor.
The fitted kitchen/breakfast room has velux skylights, slate flooring, a gas-fired Aga and ample space for a large table for informal dining and links to the family room with doors out to the garden. The two generously proportioned inter-linking formal reception rooms also open out to the garden and feature fireplaces, with a wood burning stove and full height built-in bookshelves in the sitting room.
There are six bedrooms (two currently used as home offices) arranged over the top floors, plus a large games room/bedroom seven at the top, and four bath/shower rooms.
The garden offers lovely outside space with many mature trees and stretches gently down from the rear of the house to a stream at the bottom, with neighbouring fields beyond on the other side.
There is a car port and a small garage, with gated access from the lane and linked to the house via a brick pathway through the garden. The plot extends to about 0.73 acres in total.

I like this hamlet setting on the edge of the thriving village of Wadhurst; this character house easily absorbs a growing family, with stylish entertaining spaces, and good-sized bedrooms.Robert JacobsProperty agent
