An exceptional rural position on the edge of the Ashdown Forest.
A most attractive property, built as a country retreat in the 1920s and enjoyed as a much-loved family home for the last thirty-one years in this idyllic Ashdown Forest setting within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This is a rarely-found opportunity for renovation in a wonderful tucked away position at the end of a long tree-lined driveway, surrounded by fields, yet conveniently placed just 2.6 miles from the popular village of Hartfield and about 12 miles from Tunbridge Wells.
Brook House is built in a traditional local style and enjoys access and commoners' rights to the Forest, famed for being the fictional home of Winnie the Pooh', created by the author AA Milne who lived near-by.
The living space currently comprises a characterful principal reception room featuring a wide fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove and linking through to a dining room, kitchen and a utility area.
This in turn gives access to a wing, ideal for teenagers or elderly relatives being a self-contained ground floor annexe, or office, and comprising a living area, a bedroom, a wet room and a kitchen. Five further bedrooms and two bathrooms complete the accommodation.
The property enjoys a rural outlook to all sides, surrounded by pastureland studded with wild flowers in the spring and with established woodland to the boundaries creating a haven for wildlife and a superb natural environment for children and animals.
A gate in the rear boundary leads to a twitten' providing access to the Forest, an ancient area of heathland which covers about ten square miles in total, with extensive walking and horse riding trails (by permit) see www.ashdownforest.org
