A spacious and attractive family house nestled within park-like grounds in a wonderful semi-rural, yet convenient, location.
An attractive traditional-style family house enjoying a delightful setting with a southerly aspect and an impressive gated long private driveway approach from the lane. The generously proportioned accommodation is well-presented, with a lovely outlook to all sides.
The pretty villages of Rotherfield and Mayfield, with their excellent local amenities, are about 1.4 and 2.7 miles away respectively, whilst Tunbridge Wells lies about 6.7 miles to the north. Crowborough mainline station at Jarvis Brook is about 2.9 miles from the property, enabling a commute to London Bridge from just over an hour.
The property features an impressive entrance hall with wood flooring and a central staircase rising up to the first floor, two principal reception rooms with wood flooring, comprising a triple aspect dining room with French doors out to the garden and a sitting room featuring a stone fireplace with a fitted alcove to either side. A garden room off the sitting room has French doors out to the garden and there is a good-sized study enjoying a side view to the garden.
The country-style kitchen/breakfast room enjoys a southerly outlook, with an electric Aga, Butler sink, painted wood units with granite worktops and French doors opening out to the garden. A separate utility room provides space for appliances.
The dual aspect master bedroom on the south-easterly side has a view over the grounds, built-in wardrobes and an en suite bath/shower room; five further good-sized bedrooms, all have an attractive outlook, and a family bathroom completes the accommodation.
Located to the east side of the house is a triple bay garage with external steps up to a spacious first floor studio.
Of particular note is the lovely elevated positon which Parklands enjoys, enveloped by attractive grounds of about 6.43 acres in total, with the principle rooms opening directly out to the garden.
The grounds slope down from the front of the house to the south through swathes of mature trees and shrubs under-planted with spring bulbs. A pretty pond and a meadow lie below, linking through to a field of about 2.37 acres from the top of which there is a lovely view towards Rotherfield village.
A kitchen garden, screened and sheltered by a low yew hedge, complete with a fruit cage, raised sleeper beds and a Victorian-style Hartley Botanic greenhouse, lie to the other side. An all-weather tennis court abuts the northern boundary.
The property is approached from Yew Tree Lane via a private gated entrance with a long driveway approach to a parking and turning area in front.
