A handsome newly-constructed five-bedroom home in the centre of the sought-after village of Lamberhurst, with generous family accommodation and set on a spacious plot
Town Hill House offers a rare opportunity to own a newly-constructed family home in the heart of the popular village of Lamberhurst. Occupying a generous plot, Town Hill House is set in a sheltered west-facing position, well back from the road with an impressive approach and a well-sized and secluded rear garden.
The property is approached over a front lawn via a wide path paved with Indian sandstone. The open porch is constructed from aged local oak felled by the 1987 hurricane and leads into a light and spacious reception hall. With a dual-aspect Drawing room and Family room opening off to each side, double doors lead on to an impressive open-plan kitchen and Dining/Sitting room that spans the entire rear of the house.
With fitted appliances, extensive worktop space and a breakfast bar forming a transition to the living area, the kitchen area is complemented by a well-sized utility room that offers fitted units, space for under-counter laundry appliances and an external door to a paved side path.
The Dining/Sitting area is a versatile space and features bi-fold doors that open on to a rear patio area that connects the indoor living space and the established garden to form a wonderful open configuration. With the double doors to the reception hall open, an unrestricted route from front door to back garden is opened up and contributes to an impression of light and space.
Engineered oak flooring is fitted throughout the ground floor, with zoned wet' under floor heating to all rooms. A vented heat exchange system recoverd heat from warm air extracted from the kitchen and bathrooms, recirculated as warm, clean air to the living areas of the house.
Upstairs, an open landing with a gabled double window overlooks the front of the house. The two bedrooms to either side also face westwards and feature stylish en suite shower rooms. Three further bedrooms share a well-appointed family bathroom and enjoy morning sunlight and views over the rear garden.
Town Hill House is built on a plot created from terraced land previously belonging to the neighbouring property and sits at the top of a drive leading from Town Hill and offering shared access to The Oast House. With the terraces excavated to form a level setting, sandstone from farm cottages that once occupied the site, and previously retaining the terraced levels, has been used to form attractive retaining walls and boundaries. Outbuildings include a brick-built shed attached to a traditional wood and glass greenhouse and a newly constructed double bay open garage, oak-framed and built to a traditional design with a catslide' roof over a log store to one side.
Sections of lawn connect the front to rear gardens on both sides of the house with a sandstone path to three sides and a patio at the rear. The rear garden is not overlooked and is largely level, mainly lawned and bordered with established trees and shrubs.
