Beautifully situated, substantial property, with two cottages, outbuildings and tennis court, in Cranbrook School catchment 2024.


Heron Cottage occupies an idyllic countryside setting, at the end of a long drive, flanked by adjoining farmland. This beautifully presented property, the original part of which was an old coach house, sits amidst stunning grounds of over 5 acres with two cottages, various outbuildings and a tennis court. The house has been extended and updated over the years and it offers immense flexibility, with the clever configuration presenting the perfect opportunity for either one family or for multi-generational living.

Over the ground floor are five generously proportioned reception rooms, including a dual aspect drawing room and a wonderful south facing garden room with both rooms enjoying direct garden access, interconnecting dining and sitting rooms with a dual sided wood burning stove and a family room which is open to one of the kitchens. There are two stylishly presented kitchen/breakfast rooms, each fitted by Collins Bespoke Kitchens with a comprehensive range of cupboards, larder cupboards, various integral appliances and one with an oil fired AGA and the other with an electric Everhot. A study together with utility and cloakrooms complete the ground floor accommodation.

Over the first floor and accessed via two separate staircases are a total of seven attractive bedrooms which are served by four bathrooms and two shower rooms, all with modern white sanitary ware and five being en suite.

Outside the gardens and grounds are a delight, surrounding the house, the level lawns are interspersed and bounded with a wide variety of trees underplanted with spring bulbs, mature hedging and seasonal shrubs. Of particular note, is the former walled garden with elevations enhanced by established fruit trees, together with a designated kitchen garden planted with fruit bushes and a tennis court. Adjacent to the walled garden lies an orchard with pears, apples and plums. Running along part of the north and eastern boundaries is a stunning bluebell wood.

To the north west, and well screened from the house, lie the two income generating cottages which overlook a lovely pond. Internally, they mirror each other; both having sitting rooms with wood burning stoves, kitchens, two bedrooms and bathrooms.

Various outbuildings include a garage with workshop and bike store, an excellent recreation room with golf simulator, Rhino greenhouse, timber clad shipping container and old stable and stores.
