About this property

  • Situated in the popular village of Groombridge, Haddiscoe is a substantial, detached, modern family house, which has been extended over the years to provide well in excess of 3000 sq ft of light, spacious, well-presented and generously proportioned accommodation that can be arranged and used to suit individual needs.

    Haddiscoe is presently configured to provide both a family house and a self-contained annexe totaling five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms and a separate wc on the first floor, with three/four reception rooms, two kitchen/diners, utility room, shower room and separate wc across the ground floor.

    The current arrangement offers a 'ready-made' set up for multi-generational living, an 'Airbnb' opportunity for those looking to generate income, or a short-term home for the bounce back generation seeking some independent living. Alternatively, the house offers much potential to be converted into one large family home if required.

    The Main House

    The sizeable porch leads onto the dining hall. The dining hall opens to the family room/snug with a wood-burning stove and sliding doors overlooking and opening onto the terrace and garden beyond; folding doors give the option to separate the rooms whenever required allowing for both large and small scale entertaining. There is a further, sizeable triple-aspect sitting room with an attractive outlook across the mature gardens to the front and rear.

    Fitted with bespoke, hand-built shaker-style units and topped with solid beech worksurfaces, the kitchen provides plentiful storage and preparation space, together with space for a fridge/freezer, oven and dishwasher. An adjoining utility area, with Jack and Jill access into the annexe, provides space for both a washing machine and dryer and has direct access to the garden. A WC completes the 'main house' ground floor accommodation.

    Upstairs, the dual-aspect principal bedroom has a wonderful outlook to the front across the neighbouring fields and countryside beyond, and benefits from a well-appointed en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms within the 'main house', both with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom. The study provides good space for today's working-from-home requirements, with a lovely view to the front whilst a door to the end of the hallway provides access to the annexe via bedroom four.

    The Annexe

    The annexe enjoys a separate, private entrance, with a spacious sitting room on the ground floor overlooking the front garden. Fitted Velux windows flood the dual-aspect kitchen/dining room with light; the kitchen is equipped with shaker-style units providing good storage and integrated appliances including both a fridge and dishwasher, the dining area enjoys the view over the garden to the rear with a glazed door providing direct access to the rear. There is also a WC and wet room and access to the integral garage from the ground floor. The oak staircase rises to the first floor which is home to two sizeable bedrooms and the bathroom.

    Other notable features include double-glazed Danish Velfac windows, together with underfloor heating to the main kitchen, utility, annexe kitchen/breakfast room and annexe wet room.

    Outside, the much-loved south-facing garden is mainly laid to lawn with a wonderful variety of trees, shrubs and plants providing colour and interest throughout the year, with a mature apple tree and treehouse, a stunning Willow and Beech tree. A paved terrace spans the width of the house, encompassing a small, charming pond, with steps leading to the lawn. There is a vegetable garden to the end of the garden with raised beds and a greenhouse whilst a pathway to the left gives access to the discreet storage sheds.

    To the front, the gravel driveway is approached via a 5-bar gate and provides parking for several sizeable vehicles. The integral garage has an up-and-over electric garage door. There is a raised area of lawn, with further shrubs and trees including an acer, two apple trees and a plum tree, providing good screening from the road.

Haddiscoe needs to be viewed to fully appreciate the space on offer and the flexibility the house provides. I was really struck by how happy our clients have been during their time in Groombridge and how well the house has served them as their family's needs have evolved and changed over the years.
