    About this property

    • Coming to the market for the first time in almost 40 years and set back from the road, Fuggles End is a beautifully situated five bedroom unlisted home, believed to date from the late 19th century with later additions.

      Situated about 1.5 miles east from the historic village of Hawkhurst, off a rural country lane, the property enjoys gently sloping established gardens with beautiful westerly views.

      This charming home currently comprises an entrance hall with oak flooring and off which are three reception rooms including a dual aspect sitting room with wood burner, a flexible dining room with French doors to the garden and a light and airy conservatory.

      The well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room has a range of cupboards, an AEG oven with Smeg induction hob, an integral dishwasher and French doors which open to the garden. A utility room with additional cupboards, sink and space for various white goods also has a door opening to the front of the property.

      On the first floor landing there is access to the boarded loft via a folding ladder. There are five bedrooms, a family shower room and an en suite bathroom on the first floor. The main bedroom suite is of good proportions, enjoying views over the garden and benefitting from a generously proportioned en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

      Outside to the front, a block paved driveway provides off road parking for several cars and access to the double garage. To the rear of the garage is a large purpose built shed and a log store. Attractive, well established gently sloping gardens with mixed hedging and seasonal shrubs lie mainly to the rear where wonderful westerly views can be enjoyed. Behind the main garden and accessed via a gate is a paddock which is down to grass.
