An opportunity to acquire an attached late Victorian 6 bedroom house, ripe for renovation, with a good-sized garden, on the edge of Crowborough.
Thought to have been built circa 1880, 2 Beaconstone forms the larger portion of a Victorian mansion that was divided into two properties around 1940. Offering spacious living accommodation with features typical of the period including high ceilings, deep skirting boards, picture rails and a number of attractive fireplaces, this much loved family home now offers the opportunity for complete renovation and refurbishment.
The ground floor living accommodation is comprised of a large reception hall which leads through to two good-sized reception rooms, one with a semi-circular bay window with a lovely outlook over the garden, the other with French doors that open on to the lawn, and a kitchen, all of which feature high ceilings and expansive windows adding to the spacious feel of the property.
A wide sweeping staircase with wooden balustrade leads up to the first floor landing. An attractive stained glass skylight window above allows light to flow into the whole first floor. The master bedroom with door opening onto a west facing balcony, features an en suite bathroom and a family bathroom and further five bedrooms complete the accommodation.
The outside is set well back from the road down a long gravel drive, currently shared with two other properties, the house is surrounded by mature trees and features an established and attractive garden.
The gardens lie mainly to the west of the house, with mature evergreen shrubs and trees to the boundaries ensuring a good level of privacy. A level area of lawn borders the west side of the house and can be accessed from the dining room, with the gravel drive to the south offering parking and turning space for several cars. A further area of enclosed level lawn lies to the north of the property and features a wooden wendy house.
There is also a plot of about 0.34 acres to the rear of the garden is currently being sold by separate negotiation through Savills and benefits from planning permission for a detached house - planning application number WD/2016/2316/F (Wealden District Council), permission granted 16 December 2016.
