A most attractive and well-presented Victorian stone-built coach house, which has been sympathetically converted, extended, and improved, situated in a wonderfully quiet and secluded setting with gardens and grounds of approximately 5.15 acres.
Situation: The Coach House is situated in an exceptionally quiet and secluded position at the end of a long drive on the outskirts of Ticehurst village and backs onto open fields and woodland, with lovely views over its gardens and grounds and adjoining countryside.
Ticehurst and Wadhurst villages are under 1 mile and 3 miles respectively and offer an excellent range of shops and services for everyday needs. There is also a good selection of schools in the area, including state primary and independent schools, including the well regarded Uplands Community College.
For the commuter, Wadhurst and Stonegate mainline stations are both within 3 miles of the property and provide a regular service to London Charing Cross/Cannon Street in an hour. The A21 is within easy reach providing a direct link to the M25 (junction 5) and the coast. Gatwick Airport is about 40 miles to the west, the Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone is about 45 miles to the east and central London is about 50 miles away. Tunbridge Wells is approximately 9 miles distant and provides a comprehensive range of amenities including the Pantiles, cinema complex and theatres.
Bewl Water Reservoir, reputedly the largest area of inland water in the South East, is close by and offers a range of leisure activities and water sports including an Aqua Park, walking and cycling trails, sailing, paddleboarding, rowing and fishing.
Description: Originating from 1860, the property is a fine example of a Victorian coach house, which is thought to have been originally the coach house to Ticehurst House.
Having been sympathetically and tastefully converted and extended in 2017. The property has been improved further in the last two years, including new oak double glazing arch windows and oak French doors, installation of an air-source heat pump, fully refurbished maple flooring which runs through the older sections of the house, as well as new private drainage system, 7kw electric home car charging point, and Starlink high speed internet installation delivering c400mb.
The house provides light, flexible and spacious accommodation of approximately 2,260sq.ft/210sq.m, with a modern yet traditional feel, and from being nestled within just over 5 acres of secluded gardens and grounds, which include a large paddock and woodland, are a real feature of the property.
With most attractive external elevations of mellow sandstone and brick beneath a slate tiled roof, the property is situated at the end of a long drive where there is an extensive area for parking. Double gates lead to a Mediterranean-style courtyard, which in turns leads to the front door. Also accessible from the courtyard are oak French doors to both the drawing room and kitchen/dining/family room.
The gardens surround the property and are mainly laid to lawn. There is a variety of established flower beds and borders with climbing plants, and there are good-sized areas of terracing and decking to the rear and side of the house, which are ideal for outdoor entertaining and for enjoying the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. From the gardens, pathways meander to areas of woodland, which have a variety of tree species, and to a paddock which is securely fenced on all sides, both providing a lovely outlook from the house and gardens.
