A substantial family home, with considerable potential, enjoying a large and established plot in the heart of the highly regarded village of Lamberhurst.

About this property

  • Greenacre is an attractive, detached, modern family home with over 3000 sq ft of family-friendly accommodation enjoying an elevated position with wrap-around gardens in the sought-after village of Lamberhurst in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    The light, spacious and well-balanced accommodation is set over two floors. The large reception hall leads to the welcoming formal, triple-aspect drawing room with feature fireplace and log burner with sliding glazed doors providing the view over and opening onto the terrace and gardens beyond. The drawing room is open to the adjoining dining area which also overlooks the garden.

    A further sitting room/snug provides more informal reception space and can be used to suit, it could also be used a study/home office for today's working from home needs.

    The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with traditional shaker style units with a large central island, providing good storage and plenty of preparation space, with a range of integrated appliances including an oven with grill above, Neff electric hob together with space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is ample room for a large dining table, perfect for more informal dining.

    The adjoining utility room has further space for appliances, with plumbing for a washing machine. The utility room also provides access to a downstairs shower room and access to the garden.

    On the first floor the impressive principal bedroom enjoys triple aspect views, a walk-in wardrobe and a large en suite bathroom. There are three further sizable double bedrooms, two of which enjoy the outlook over the gardens, whilst the third bedroom enjoys the far reaching views over the village and neighbouring countryside to the front. There is a separate family bathroom and useful cupboard space accessed off the landing which complete the accommodation.

    Greenacre is comfortably set back from Brewer Street and is situated in about an acre, with a mature, impressive wisteria sweeping up and over the front entrance, and driveway with ample parking for numerous vehicles and integral double garage (401 sqft).

    The wrap-around gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with paved terraces to the rear, ideal for outdoor entertaining on a large scale. The gardens enjoy established planting with a varied range of shrubs and trees, including an acer, cherry tree, white magnolia, azalea and a range of climbers. The outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by a paved terrace, with raised beds to two sides and a pool house.

    Greenacre offers a great deal of potential for both updating and further extension; historically our clients had secured planning permission to convert the integral garage into a games room with a first floor extension over, this permission has now lapsed but can be viewed online (Tunbridge Wells Borough Council Ref: 09/03992/HOUSE).

This is such a super opportunity, I was really impressed by how generous the accommodation is at Greenacre; this is a great family home which offer so much scope and opportunity for a new family to make their mark. The gardens are wonderful, you can really sense immediately how much fun will be had here in the summer months.
