    About this property

    • Wadhurst Place is a historic country estate dating back to 1885 built by Adolphus Croft for John Bruce, a descendant of Robert the Bruce, King of the Scots. In approximately 1930 the manor house became a school and was renamed Wadhurst College. In 2015 the building was converted into private residential apartments within this gated development.

      9 Bruce Manor Close is a beautifully presented two-bedroom apartment benefiting from charming period features throughout including high ceilings, decorative coving, deep skirting boards and sash style windows.

      Situated on the first floor, the front door opens to the entrance hall which is fitted with parquet flooring and underfloor heating, extending to both the sitting room and kitchen. The well-appointed, stylish kitchen is fitted with shaker-style cabinetry topped by quartz worktops providing a good level of storage and preparation space. Integrated appliances include an induction hob, oven, wine fridge, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The sitting room benefits from two large sash windows flooding the room with light, together with a gas fireplace with a decorative surround and space for a dining table.

      The spacious principal bedroom benefits from a stylish en suite shower room. There is a further single bedroom which is served by the well-appointed family bathroom.

      Outside, apartment 9 benefits from two allocated parking spaces, with further visitor parking available within the car park. Residents can enjoy the expansive communal grounds which includes both parkland and woodland.

    I think Bruce Manor Close is an ideal set up for those looking for the peace of the countryside with all the "mod cons"! An ideal permanent home or UK base and so close to the village of Wadhurst which continues to thrive. You cannot help but be impressed as you approach the main house via the sweeping driveway and the views are just fabulous!
