A beautifully located house with light and spacious accommodation, set in stunning gardens of 1.25 acres, and within the Cranbrook School catchment area. EPC D.

Petersfield is a very attractive property, constructed in the 1930s. The accommodation is light and spacious and is arranged as follows:

A large covered verandah with tiled flooring, ideal for outside dining and entertaining, leads into a wonderful front to back reception hall with exposed pine stripped flooring. There is a brick fireplace with gas coal-effect fire, attractive part-curved ceiling, and double-opening casement doors leading onto the rear terrace and garden beyond.

The principal reception rooms are approached from the hall and include the drawing room with large bow window with window seat overlooking the front garden, and brick fireplace with gas coal-effect fire. An inner vestibule leads to the lovely light dining room with bow window and brick fireplace (currently sealed).

At the rear of the house is the study/bedroom 4 with exposed pine floorboards, wardrobe with cupboard above, window overlooking the rear garden and an en suite shower room.

An inner hallway leads to a family bathroom and onto the kitchen with a range of cupboards and drawers beneath, sink unit, 4-ring gas hob, Neff double oven, space for washing machine and dishwasher, and range of eye-level units. A door leads into the breakfast room with fitted corner seating. A further door leads into the rear hall and utility area with sink and larder with large American-style fridge freezer.

On the first floor is a large landing/study area with airing cupboard, further range of cupboards and separate WC. The master bedroom has a glorious outlook over the front garden, gas coal-effect fire, walk-in wardrobe and a further cupboard, tiled shower cubicle and pedestal wash basin.

A door leads into bedroom 3/dressing room with walk-in wardrobe. On the other side of the landing there is a further bedroom with tiled shower cubicle, wash basin and storage cupboards.

OUTSIDE
Petersfield is approached from the road through a five-bar gate leading onto a central gravelled driveway which continues to the house, flanked by areas of lawn with beautifully stocked herbaceous borders including a selection of Russian silver birches, azaleas, acers and clipped shaped yew trees, screened by mature hedges.

There is a large parking area with circular turning area with central flower border planted with nirenes and lavender. To the side of this is an English Heritage triple garage with two open-fronted bays and one with double opening doors.

Bordering the rear of the house is a paved terrace which continues onto a beautiful level area of lawn with a magnificent ancient oak tree. Within the garden are several outbuildings including a garden implement store with potting shed to the side and a garden shed.

The gardens are one of the features of the property with banks of wonderful mature rhododendrons, laburnum, flowering cherry and magnolia. An archway through the rhododendrons leads to a further area of lawn with a vegetable garden and selection of mature trees including a monkey puzzle, acer, beech and sycamore.

Adjacent is an area of light woodland bordering farmland beyond. The whole garden forms a delightful backdrop to the property and extends to about 1.25 acres.
