About this property

  • Pippins is an attractive 1930's family home, that has been updated and carefully maintained over the years, offering flexible living with four bedrooms in the main house and an attached one-bedroom self-contained annexe. Well-presented throughout, the ground floor accommodation comprises a shaker-style kitchen/diner with a separate utility and large square bay window, a good-sized sitting room fitted with a log-burning stove and internal bifold doors that open to the impressive garden room with underfloor heating.

    Upstairs the sizable principal bedroom enjoys a square bay window with views to the rear garden, and an ensuite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, and a single bedroom which is currently being used as a study by the family.

    The attached annexe provides further ground floor accommodation and can be entered both externally from the front and internally via the main house dining room. The annexe comprises a kitchen fitted with modern high-gloss cupboards, a sitting room with French doors opening onto the terrace, a good-sized double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, and a shower room.

    The house is approached over a long gravel drive, lined with red robin trees and flower beds, providing ample parking, with a single garage and carport to one side. The gardens as a whole are mainly laid to lawn to three sides of the house, with a sheltered courtyard to the fourth, for use either by the main house or the annexe. Established evergreen hedging to the boundaries and a number of mature shrubs and trees including an apple tree. To the rear are herbaceous beds, a bank of rhododendrons and terraces.

Pippins is a wonderful family home; not only is Wadhurst a thriving village but for me the magic ingredient is the annexe, a generous and very useful addition to the house that provides space for any number of uses, such as multi-generational living, overflow accommodation for guests, a great space for working from home, or providing a possible source of income, subject to any necessary consents.
