Property Description

Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire a cottage style detached house in a sought-after private road, together with a substantial mature garden, a small orchard and equestrian facilities including stables, sand school and four paddocks. Approaching 4 acres overall.

The property has been extended and modernised in recent years, yet retains features such as stripped wooden floors, picture rails and a fireplace with multi-fuel stove. There are four double bedrooms, a 24'9 Sitting Room, 24'1 Kitchen/Dining Room and Study/5th Bedroom.

The Location
The Warren is a private road on the eastern edge of the historic village of Mayfield,which is within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village retains a High Street which offers a general store, Post Office, bank, bakers, chemist, butchers and a variety of speciality shops. There is also a primary school, a doctors, dentists and three public houses.

More comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities will be found in the Royal Spa town of Tunbridge Wells, about 9 miles to the north, along with rail services on the Charing Cross/Cannon Street Line. The nearest rail station is at Wadhurst, on the same line. Secondary schools will be found in Heathfield and Wadhurst and the area is well served with private schools.

The Property
The residential area known as The Warren is understood to have been established in the late 1920's and comprises a mixture of substantial homes on good sized plots. Littlecote is a traditional tile hung property screened from the road by shrubs and trees in a tucked away position at the end of the lane. The current owners acquired the adjoining fields after moving in and and this now forms the equestrian facilities.

In recent years the house has been extended to one side to provide a study/possible bedroom 5 and to enlarge one of the upstairs bedrooms. Further alterations have been made to create the 24' 1 kitchen/dining room and the 24'9 through sitting room. Although now comprehensively modernised the house retains many character features such as stripped wooden floors, picture rails and a fireplace with a multi-fuel stove.
