Period semi-detached cottage with an abundance of original features.
Old Copwood is a pretty semi-detached cottage, arranged over three floors and believed to date from the early 17th century. The property offers delightful accommodation, with plenty of character and original features including exposed beams.
On the ground floor are two sitting rooms, the larger of which has an open brick fireplace with a heavy oak bressummer, cast iron backplate and grate, and a dining room, with original bottle glass windows. The charming country style kitchen has space for a table, and includes an Aga, granite surfaces and a good range of wood cabinets.
There are three bedrooms (two en suite) and a bathroom on the first floor; on the second floor, bedroom four leads to bedroom five, which has an en suite shower room.
Planning permission was granted in 2018 to create a further ground floor bedroom and bathroom on the site of the old garaging and porch; work has begun and is in progress. The purchaser will need to undertake completion. Plans can be view at Wealden ref WD/2018/0540/F and Building Notice Acceptance ref B/201/2441.
Old Copwood is approached from Rocks Lane via a drive, owned by Copwood House and over which Old Copwood has right of access.
To the rear of the extension is an enclosed courtyard garden.
The principal portion of the garden lies across the drive, and offers hardstanding leading to a carport and providing parking for a number of vehicles; to the side and rear of this lie the mature gardens, which have been planted with an array of shrubs, flowers and bulbs, with a pond. In all, about half an acre.

This is an extremely characterful home oozing period features in a rural setting; the potential of the annexe is particularly appealing.Jason North
