About this property

  • At the heart of the historic Wealden village of Speldhurst, and tucked away at the end of St Mary's Lane lies Saxons. A substantial new home, surrounded by grounds of over 0.6 acres, this tastefully-designed property offers a secluded location, free of passing traffic, and with charming views to the Parish Church..

    With brick, tile-hung and weather-boarded facades, half-hipped roof and brickwork detailing, Saxons takes external design cues from the local vernacular and combines this with a stunning modern interior.

    The principal living area of the ground floor is an open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, flooded with light from aluminium framed bi-fold doors and a dramatic ten-paned window connecting the ground floor to the galleried landing above.

    To one end is a well-specified kitchen, with an island unit/breakfast bar, quartz worktops, eye-level ovens and built-in Siemens appliances. With the bi-fold doors facing west opposite the east-facing feature window, this impressive living space enjoys sunshine from sunrise to sunset.

    Two further reception rooms include a dual-aspect drawing room, with French doors opening out to the garden, a substantial fireplace with an oak lintel and a wood-burning stove, and a dual-aspect family room. A utility room, with a Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer, a Belfast sink and with outside access, completes the ground floor accommodation.

    The spacious first floor accommodation features two bedroom suites, each with a dressing room and fitted wardrobes, the larger of the two opening on to a south-facing balcony with views to St Mary's Church.

    Two further bedrooms and a family bathroom open off a central galleried landing, with stairs leading up to the second floor attic room. This 665 sq ft space has windows to both end walls and Velux roof lights and offers the potential to be configured as one or two further bedrooms and a bath/shower room, subject to any necessary permissions.

    Located at the far end of St Mary's lane, a no-through-road, Saxons sits centrally in its plot with tall wooden electric gates which open to reveal an attractive turning circle to the front of the house. The separate double garage block features a room above, with separate outside access and a dormer window and Velux roof lights. To its side is parking for several cars.

    Lying to three sides of the house, the garden is mostly level and lawned, with mature shrubs and trees to the boundaries and new planting designed to complete the leafy and established feel of the land. The largest area of garden lies to the west, with the bi-fold doors of the main living space opening onto a paved terrace. Steps up into the garden suggest the possibility to create more extensive terracing for enjoyment all-day and evening sunshine for entertaining and outside-living.
