Outstanding opportunity to own a one-off property with beautiful views in a sought after location


Taking advantage of stunning views across the Kentish Weald, Waterfield House sits nestled within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The concept of the dwelling was to be designed of both the earth and sky. A solid, masonry base was partially dug into the hillside, and extended out into the landscape with garden walls, thus hiding its true scale from afar. Materials were chosen as a nod to the natural tones found within the existing site strata. The plinth provides opportunity to house the more private bedroom and entertainment spaces and creates a base for the lighter, dual aspect living spaces to be located on the upper level.

The upper ‘sky’ floor sits at tree canopy level, taking advantage of stunning views down the valley. Four large living areas are arranged in a linear sequence of interconnected spaces, divided with custom cabinets, and linked to the lower ground floor with a central atrium. Large sliding glazed doors sit behind movable Larch shutters, which open and close to give varying degrees of shading, ventilation, and privacy, whilst casting dappled shadows throughout the day.

A separate study and kitchen are hidden within the living spaces. In addition there is a fully equipped gym and cinema room to the lower floor. To the rear, the building merges into the landscape at the top of the site, enclosing a modest, south-facing courtyard providing shelter from the elements whilst allowing light deep into the plan.


Waterfield House is located in a wonderful rural position, within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a mile from the beautiful and sought-after village of Goudhurst which is well known for its pretty centre with ancient church, duck pond, period buildings, inns and restaurants. The regional centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells provides an extensive range of shopping, commercial, recreational and cultural facilities, as well as a mainline train service to London Charing Cross and Cannon Street in under the hour.

Train services to London are also available from nearby Marden and Staplehurst. The A21 provides access to the south coast, the M25 and national motorway network with connections to London Gatwick and Heathrow airports, the Channel Tunnel and ferry ports.

There is a good selection of state and private schools in the area including Cranbrook School, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks public schools, Kent College for Girls, Marlborough House and St Ronans at Hawkhurst, Benenden School and Sutton Valence. We understand that the property lies within the Cranbrook School catchment area.

Sporting and leisure facilities in the area include golf courses at Lamberhurst, Hawkhurst, Cranbrook and Dale Hill; sailing and water sports at Bewl Water and on the south coast; walking and riding in the surrounding countryside and at nearby Bedgebury Pinetum.
