A Decimus Burton coach house tucked away on the southern fringes of this popular village, convenient for schools and just 3 miles from Tunbridge Wells mainline station.
Redwood House is a converted coach house which has been updated and extended over the years to provide a stylish and comfortable family home. The accommodation has been designed to make the most of the southerly aspect of the house and its delightful setting, with a generous provision of windows overlooking the mature garden and French doors from the principal rooms to the garden.
The reception hall can be accessed via a half-glazed door from the cobbled courtyard and features a beamed ceiling, French doors to the rear and a fireplace with an oak surround and mantel and a flagstone hearth.
The 27'8 drawing room has a high vaulted ceiling and tall windows incorporating French doors leading out to the garden, and a gas-fired stove set on a modern polished concrete plinth.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with painted wooden wall units, some with glazed doors and base units under a laminate worktop, inset with a wooden drainer to the side of the double butler sink which has a feature oval window above. A gas-fired two-oven Aga is complemented by an integral electric oven and a ceramic hob. French doors open out to the courtyard and a step leads down to the dining room.
The spacious dining room has high ceilings and a striking fireplace with decorative wall moulding above.
The first floor accommodation comprises three double bedrooms, two en suite, and a family bathroom.
The recently constructed ground floor level master bedroom features a high vaulted ceiling and a well-appointed en suite shower room and is accessed via a glazed link from the first floor landing. Shuttered French doors lead out to the front garden and a window seat to the bay window offers a spot for quiet contemplation.
Redwood House is set about one fifth of a mile from the lane, approached via a driveway also serving four other properties. Electric wrought iron gates give access onto the private gravel drive where there are two parking areas offering parking for several cars. A further set of iron gates between stone pillars leads through to a cobbled courtyard immediately to the front of the property.
The well-stocked, mature gardens are a particular feature of the property, lying mainly to the South east, sweeping gently away from the house and bounded to the South and East by a mix of mature evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs giving a high degree of privacy.
A magnificent Redwood tree, for which the house was named, provides a dramatic focal point. A further, more natural area lies to the West, dropping into a small ravine with woodland on three sides, providing an ideal environment for children to explore and wildlife to flourish.
A Southeast-facing raised brick and flagstone terrace spans across the drawing room with a delightful view across the garden over a rose bed stocked with mature scented roses. Accessed from the drawing room and from the courtyard in front of the kitchen, it forms a lovely area for summer entertaining. A pergola clad with climbing rose provides a shaded seating area to the western end of the terrace with further paved areas orientated to catch the early morning and afternoon sun.
The well-appointed timber-built garden office, with power connected and electric heating installed, is tucked away to the eastern edge of the garden, accessed from the driveway via a part cobbled, part flagstone path.
