A delightful country home in a wonderful tucked away position.
Dating back to the early 19th century, Gilridge Farm Oast comprises a characterful single roundel oast house, cleverly linked to its adjoining cottage and with the benefit of a detached barn with potential, creating a charming and adaptable family home.
The property enjoys a high level of privacy with an impressive tree-lined driveway and is set in extensive park-like grounds with exceptional rural views from the majority of rooms.
Gilridge Farm Oast lies just 1.2 miles from the excellent amenities of Crowborough town centre. For commuters, Crowborough (at Jarvis Brook 2.8 miles) or Eridge (4 miles) mainline stations offer regular services to London Bridge from about an hour, whilst Tunbridge Wells is about 8.7 miles with a shorter journey time to London. There is a good choice of private and state schools in the area, making this a perfect base for family life.
This well-loved family home has been enjoyed and beautifully maintained over the years and there is further potential to fulfil individual requirements.
Of particular note is the bespoke fitted library in the oast roundel and generously proportioned high-beamed dual aspect drawing room, with brick flooring and a large wood burning stove.
The outbuildings include a wood byre, workshop and garaging and a quaint detached brick and tiled barn, currently used as a studio and leisure room with a wood burning stove, fitted bar and a large attic store above, with the potential to create an annexe, subject to any necessary planning constraints.
Gilridge Farm Oast is positioned for full enjoyment of the view, surrounded by expansive lawns, with a wide stone terrace to the rear, courtyard garden to the front, brick pathways, a plethora of shrub borders and a block of bluebell-rich woodland below.
The front approach is via a gated entrance from the lane and a long gravel driveway runs adjacent to the adjoining field with its impressive line of lime and horse chestnut trees and culminates with a parking and turning area.
A recently refurbished all weather tennis court lies on the southerly corner, sheltered by high clipped hedging.
BY SEPARATE NEGOTIATION:
An attractive field of about 9.23 acres, fenced and laid down to pasture, lies on the southwesterly
side of the house, designated by a blue line on the plan. A public footpath traverses the field, marked on the site plan.
