Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb attached character barn conversion offering spacious, flexible accommodation with a wealth of character and charm in an outstanding quiet rural location with fine country views towards the Ashdown Forest.

The Maltings has been the subject of a significant renovation programme to provide stylish, contemporary living yet still retaining many period features. The spacious double aspect drawing room has a fine inglenook fireplace with brick surround and oak bressumer above, a wealth of exposed oak beams and French doors to the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast is extremely well fitted with a range of bespoke wooden cabinetry set beneath long Blue Pearl granite work surfaces with matching cupboards above including glazed display units. There is a gas fired four oven Aga with tiled surround, double Butler sink, an integrated wine rack, integrated Neff dishwasher, space for a tall fridge/freezer and Travertine tiled flooring. The separate formal dining room has exposed oak beams, travertine tiled floor and delightful views over the gardens.

The delightful principal bedroom has an extensive range of bespoke built-in wardrobes and enjoys views across the surrounding countryside. The en suite bathroom is very well fitted with a double ended bath, separate shower, low level WC, bidet and pedestal wash basin with marble surround set in a vanity unit. There are three further good sized bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes which are served by the family bathroom with a separate bath, low level WC, bidet and pedestal wash basin with storage unit beneath, fully tiled walls and floor.

The property is approached by a gravel drive which provides parking for several vehicles. There is a substantial detached barn style triple garage with a separate WC (one of the bays is currently used as a gym). On the first floor is a generous size home office with a large useful eaves storage area. The whole building has great potential to be converted into a self-contained annexe subject to the necessary consents.

Immediately adjoining the rear of the barn is a brick paved dining area with an enclosed ornamental fish pond with brick surround and secure railings. Beyond is a large lawn which is flanked by mature hedging and trees and there are superb far reaching views across the Sussex countryside towards the Ashdown Forest. In all just over half an acre.

The Maltings is set in attractive wholly rural surroundings within the charming village of Withyham in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the village there is a good primary school, an excellent gastro pub, The Dorset Arms, a church, village hall and an active cricket club. The Forest Way Country Park is within a stone's throw of the property and provides safe family cycling on a disused railway path. Hartfield is about 1.8 miles away where there is a village shop and a local farm shop, several pubs and the famous Winnie the Pooh tea room. The Ashdown Forest is within close proximity to the property which extends to about 6,400 acres of largely open heath and provides fantastic walking and riding countryside. The market town of Crowborough is about 4.3 miles distant where there are a number of independent shops as well as a Waitrose and Morrisons supermarket. Tunbridge Wells is just over 7 miles distant where there is a range of more comprehensive shopping facilities as well as an excellent choice of restaurants. Educational facilities in the area are renowned and there are highly regarded private and state schools in the area for children of all ages.
