The Story

BRIGHT INTERIORS
The handsome semi-detached property dates back about 100 years, she believes.
“It has clearly been a much-loved home in the past as the person who lived here before us was born here,” she says.
The house is much larger inside than it looks from the front and offers well-proportioned, versatile space.
“We bought it knowing we would renovate and improve it over time,” she says. “And we have enjoyed bringing our own style to it – we have redone the bathroom and laid new flooring and carpets, and pretty much redecorated every room in the house.”
A storage area has also been converted into a study. With a vaulted ceiling and skylight window this is now a wonderful place to work quietly.

A HOMELY FEEL
The whole house has a bright, inviting feel: the drawing room is particularly homely when the fire is roaring on a winter’s evening, while the dining room is great for dinner parties with friends.
“There is a very nice flow between the drawing room, dining room and kitchen,” she observes. “It works well when people come round as they can move easily from room to room, and there is always plenty of space.”
In the warm weather they enjoy relaxing out on the terrace in the sunshine or dining in the cool shade of their leafy greenery with their guests.
“I absolutely love the garden,” she admits. “There have been great parties out in the garden or lots of barbecues with friends in the summer.”

OUTDOOR LIFE
There are also lots of attractive places in the area to spend the afternoon, such as Scotney Castle, which is located in Lamberhurst and owned by the National Trust. This is a country house with formal gardens, which nestles in the valley of the River Bewl. The gardens, which are open to the public, feature the ruins of a medieval, moated manor house, on an island on a small lake. The lake is surrounded by sloping, wooded gardens, with fine collections of rhododendrons, azaleas and kalmia, summer wisteria and roses, and spectacular autumn colour.

VILLAGE LIFE
Lamberhurst is a small but thriving village, situated within a grammar school catchment area, and with its own primary school, general store (incorporating a Post Office) and doctors surgery.
“As well as the vineyard that we often walk around, we have a pub here in Lamberhurst called The Vineyard, which is known for its good food and welcoming atmosphere,” she says. “There is also easy access to places like Bewl Water and Bedgebury Forest from here.”
The village is set in the High Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with lots of spectacular scenery. This stretch of landscape runs across Sussex and Kent between the North Downs and the South Downs, and is known for its many beauty spots.

CONVENIENT PLACE
From Lamberhurst, it is also easy to access Tunbridge Wells, which is just 15 minutes away by car and has larger shops, leisure facilities and amenities. The nearby bustling village of Wadhurst is also known for its good schools and range of independent shops, as well as its station with trains into London. And the area enjoys good access to the M25, Gatwick Airport and the Channel Tunnel.
“From here it is also easy to reach the south coast,” she points out. “This has been a great place to live.”
And she adds: “We are only moving on now because we are relocating for reasons of work and I know I will miss the village, as well as the house and garden, when we go.”

Setting The Scene

The house on The Slade is set back, with a small front garden and off-street parking for one car.
At the back there is a long garden, with a lawn, some leafy screening and terraced areas for eating out. There is also an outside store room or shed.
