An impressive Victorian house with extensive grounds.
Originally part of the historic Abergavenny Estate, this handsome and beautifully proportioned character home dates back to around 1840 and is privately set with a southerly aspect within extensive park-like grounds.
Petersfield House is conveniently located, lying about 12 miles south of Tunbridge Wells in a small rural lane off the A272 Heathfield to Uckfield Road. The pretty village of Buxted is about 3.3 miles with its local amenities and mainline station providing regular commuter services to London Bridge.
This stylish family house is full of period character and has been sympathetically enhanced over the years to provide beautifully presented and well laid-out accommodation, with high ceilings, an abundance of natural light and an attractive outlook over its grounds to all sides.
The living space comprises two elegant principal reception rooms, a study and a music room, together with a large country-style kitchen/breakfast room, complete with an Aga, and opening out to a striking vaulted orangery/dining room, ideal for entertaining and enjoyment of the surrounding gardens. A spacious principal suite with lovely views to the north and four further good sized bedrooms are located on the first floor, together with three bath/shower rooms.
Outside: The established grounds wrap around the house to create a lovely private setting with high hedging and many mature trees shielding the boundary.
There are formal touches, with an expansive flag stone terrace with raised brick beds and a water feature accessed from the orangery, red brick pathways, level lawns and well-stocked herbaceous and shrub borders. A magnificent ancient Ash tree provides a glorious focal point and the grounds extend to a wild area of meadow land to the rear and a well maintained tennis court on the southern side.
Of particular note is the excellent office/leisure room which is part of the traditional style oak framed detached garage block lying to the front of the house.
