About this property

  • The Mews is a modern oak framed house in the style of a Wealden Hall House constructed in 2005 and built by a local builder. The property sits well back from the road and is approached by a private gravel drive. It sits amidst about four acres of ancient woodland providing seclusion and privacy and falls within Cranbrook School catchment (2023).

    Internally, there is an abundance of exposed beams, brickwork, quality wooden joinery and well proportioned and presented accommodation over three floors with underfloor heating.

    On the ground floor there is an impressive vaulted reception/dining hall with wood burning stove, a cloakroom and staircase to the galleried landing. Two reception rooms include a sitting room with wood burning stove and double aspect and a triple aspect family room incorporating a flexible study area.

    The substantial kitchen/breakfast room also with dual aspect to enjoy the woodland views is fitted with an excellent range of cupboards, complemented by wooden work surfaces and a butler sink. Appliances comprise a Rangemaster cooker with six ring hob and an integral dishwasher. There is space for further white goods. The utility room has additional cupboards, a butler sink, houses the oil boiler for central heating and hot water and has space for a washing machine. Access to the larder.

    Principal and guest bedrooms on the first floor, have well appointed en suite bath or shower rooms and the main bedroom benefits from a bespoke fitted dressing room. There are three further double bedrooms over the first and second floors and these are served by a family bathroom and WC.

    Outside there is ample parking, a three bay oak framed cart barn style garage with open and closed bays, two stables with store rooms, a workshop with wood burning stove and telephone line, an open bay log store, a tractor shed with power and light, a chicken/potting shed and a greenhouse. The gardens surround the house and stretch away to the woodland providing a natural habitat and haven for wildlife and native flowers.
