    About this property

    • Approached via a driveway off School Hill, Pilbeams is a well-presented Grade II Listed cottage boasting character and charm throughout, with extensive views over the Wealden countryside. A brick path leads through a pretty cottage-style garden to a stable door entering into a delightful sitting room with exposed red brick flooring and a large inglenook fireplace with a bread oven and a salt cupboard, inset with a wood burning stove with canopy over. The characterful dining room adjoins, divided by an exposed oak beamed wall with multi paned windows and a period-style fireplace.

      At the heart of the house lies a partly-vaulted kitchen with exposed red brick flooring, skylight, ceramic sink, built in ‘Miele' oven and gas hob, dishwasher and space for a fridge/freeze, and access down to the cellar storage. A passage connects a well-appointed bathroom.

      A light and airy oak-framed inner hall with high vaulted ceiling and space for appliances leads through to a courtyard garden area and to the rear.

      The first floor comprises two double bedrooms, the master with en suite, cloakroom and walk-in wardrobe off.

      A staircase leads up to a dual-aspect double bedroom with wonderful views and an adjoining dressing room/study and a W.C.

      The property is completed with a walled rear garden with flagstone terrace, summer house, a small area of lawn surrounded by immaculate well stocked mixed-flower borders, and a substantial oak framed double garage with steps up to an eaves storage area.
