    The Property
    Clearview is a handsome, newly built family house on the edge of Wadhurst village. The property has the convenience and the community of a village house and yet retains the land, views and amenities of a country house. The house has been constructed to exacting standards of brick under a tile roof, with the accommodation arranged principally over two floors and extending to approximately 4,908 sq.ft. The property has concrete floors with Amtico flooring and underfloor heating throughout. A lot of thought and planning has gone into the design of the house, particularly the arrangement of the accommodation, which is lovely, light and spacious and positioned to exploit the southerly views over the countryside.

    The accommodation is extremely well laid out, but of particular note is the exceptional kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a three oven electric AGA and beautifully constructed hand built units. The central island is positioned to take advantage of the view through the orangery to the garden and grounds beyond. This forms a wonderful central core of the house, ideal for modern family living.

    The principal reception rooms feature Amtico flooring, beautiful joinery, tall ceiling heights and multipane sash windows. The accommodation has been well designed to exploit the views and provide access to the southern terrace. There is also a great balance between formal and informal accommodation, allowing space for entertaining and family living in equal measure.

    The first floor accommodation is accessed via an elegant staircase from the reception hall leading to a spacious and light landing from which all the bedrooms are accessed. The master bedroom suite is generous, incorporating a dressing room and luxurious bathroom as well as double doors opening out to a balcony with views to the south. The further three bedrooms all are served by their own bathrooms. The first floor accommodation is completed with a separate laundry room.

    Outside
    Clearview is approached via an impressive set of electric wrought iron gates opening to a large parking area to the front of the house. There is a separate garage block extending to 1524 sq. ft. constructed of brick under a slate roof with space for four large cars. Above is secondary accommodation, consisting of a bedroom, bathroom and sitting room, suitable for guests or staff.

    To the rear of the house is a large entertaining terrace, which can be accessed from both the drawing room and the kitchen/breakfast room and runs the length of the south side of the house. It is beautifully positioned to exploit the exceptional views over the gardens, grounds and the surrounding countryside. Beyond lie the principal lawns flanked by herbaceous borders, which lead down to a swimming pond overlooked by a timber summerhouse.

    Beyond the principal gardens are the equestrian facilities including a stable block with three stables, tack room, hay barn, double garage and substantial implement store. These buildings can be accessed via a secondary tarmac drive leading from Mayfield Lane. From here, the grounds expand into a series of post and rail fenced paddocks (all with automatic water troughs) interspersed by mature trees. Two further summerhouses, one of which has an in-built barbeque can be found in the fields. The south and west boundaries are bordered by belts of woodland and there is also a pond. In all, the property extends to 33.61 acres.

    A further c. 10 acres of post and rail fenced paddocks may be available by separate negotiation.
