    About this property

    • Built in 1920, The Grove is a detached bungalow sat in the midst of its third of an acre plot. Light, bright, clean and tidy, but in need of modernisation, The Grove provides a wonderful opportunity for a new owner to put their own stamp on the property moving forward.

      Currently the accommodation is arranged to provide two double bedrooms and a shower room, together with two reception rooms in addition to the kitchen. There is a useful porch and utility area/boot room (housing the gas boiler) to the front of the bungalow.

      Of particular note, The Grove is coming to market with the considerable benefit of planning permission already in place. Granted in the autumn of 2022, the permission is for an extension to the front of the property; infill extension and conservatory to the rear; new 5 bar timber gate; 1.5m tall brick entrance piers and 1.2m high post and wire fencing installed to the northern boundary; 30 PV cells installed to the garage and main house roof. Further details and plans are available on the Wealden District Council website WD/2022/1167/F.

      Outside: There are well-maintained lawns to both the front and rear, enclosed by fencing and hedging, providing a blank canvas for the green fingered.

      The property is approached via a gated, block paved driveway offering parking for several cars, together with a separate large timber garage with power and lighting and an electronically operated up and over door.

    A very exciting prospect indeed! The Grove offers real flexibility; you could simply update what is already here, but with the planning permission already in place you can take The Grove much further should you wish. <BR><BR>What a joy to have "Winnie the Pooh" country on your doorstep to enjoy whenever you want!
