DESCRIPTION A rare chance to purchase an unlisted detached farm house that has been in the current family's ownership for over 40 years. Situated close to Bewl Water, and set on the edge of a private lane, the property has the most amazing potential to be transformed into a dream home with lovely views over to the waters edge. Set in 2.5 acres of mature country gardens and grassed paddock with wild meadow flowers and mature trees, there is even the possibility of looking to extend the home, subject to the required planning consents. Ideal for walking or cycling enthusiasts, as there is a footpath close to the house that will take you to the waters edge.

Internally the home has pretty white multi-paned windows throughout, a good size kitchen/breakfast room, L-shaped, with a fitted Rayburn cooker set in the fireplace. The drawing room has windows to three sides, making the room lovely and bright and with views to the water. There is also a dining room/ bedroom 5 which has a wet/shower room off to one side. As you come in there is a handy utility cupboard and cloakroom too.

Upstairs, you have four good size bedrooms with the master bedroom having the most glorious views. The family bathroom is in need of updating, but provides a good space to work with. Accessed from bedroom 2 there is also a large loft area, again with potential to convert.

Located on the borders of Bewl Water, with direct access to the reservoir less than 400 metres away via the lane outside the house, there are plenty of activities for all the family, including walking, cycling, sailing and canoeing. The town of Wadhurst is a short drive away and offers access to all of your shopping needs as well as a mainline train service to Central London in around an hour.
