A rarely found 2 double bedroom detached 1930’s cottage, that has been refurbished throughout and benefits from being situated in a wonderful, tucked away location, within walking distance of Bewl Water on the outskirts of Wadhurst.
The property is situated in a quiet, tucked away position on the outskirts of Wadhurst, which was named the best place to live in the UK in 2023 by The Sunday Times, in the sought after hamlet of Cousley Wood with its popular inn, The Old Vine, and is within a mile of Bewl Water. Wadhurst High Street is approximately 1½ miles distant and offers an excellent range of shops and services for everyday needs including a Jempson’s Local store and post office, cafés, butcher, pharmacy, florist, off licence, bank, public houses, as well as a doctor’s surgery, dentist, primary school and the well regarded Uplands Community College and Sports Centre.
For the commuter, Wadhurst mainline station is under 2½ miles distant and provides a regular service to London Charing Cross/Cannon Street in under an hour. The A21 is also within easy reach and links with the M25 and the regional centre of Tunbridge Wells is about 6 miles away and provides a comprehensive range of amenities including the Royal Victoria Shopping centre, cinema complex and theatres.
The beautiful surrounding countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and includes Bewl Water Reservoir, reputedly the largest area of inland water in the South East, where a wide range of water sports can be enjoyed.
The property is a 1930’s detached cottage, with later additions, benefiting from a lovely open aspect to the rear with views over open countryside.
With brick and tile hung external elevations beneath a tiled roof, with double glazed windows, the property is very well presented and has been refurbished throughout to provide a light and versatile living space, including a spacious and modern kitchen/dining room with a separate utility and cloak room, a modern bathroom and benefits from a new central heating system and new electrics. There is also excellent scope to increase the accommodation further, subject to the necessary consents.
Arranged over two floors, the accommodation includes on the ground floor an entrance lobby, a double aspect sitting room with a feature fireplace with a wood burning stove and french doors leading to the garden, a spacious double aspect kitchen/dining room with an extensive range of solid oak wall and base units, with Corian worksurfaces above, which include a breakfast bar and integrated appliances including a double oven, induction hob, extractor fan, fridge/freezer and dishwasher and there is a feature fireplace with a wood burning stove, a utility, a cloak room and a good-sized conservatory with French doors leading to the garden. On the first floor there is a double aspect master bedroom with a dressing area with a good range of fitted wardrobes and drawers, a further double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a nursery/study and a good-sized modern bathroom.
Outside, the property is approached over a gravel drive which leads to double gates which open onto a parking area for several cars and a double garage. Mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrub and plant borders and backing onto open countryside, the private, secluded and manageable sized gardens wrap around the cottage and are a real feature of the property.
