The National Trust property, Bateman's, home of Rudyard Kipling, is also just a few minutes way and the surrounding countryside 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 and the coast is also within easy reach.
The property is one of seven apartments within an impressive Grade II listed building, which is believed to date back to the early 1800’s and was sympathetically converted in 1986. Presenting attractive rendered external elevations beneath a tiled roof, the property benefits from having been well maintained and has recently undergone external re-decoration on the front elevation.
The property is light, spacious and well presented throughout and benefits from some wonderful period features, including high ceilings and large sash windows. The property also benefits from a recently installed gas central heating system including a high efficiency combination gas boiler, underfloor insulation and from having a share of the freehold.
Arranged on the ground floor, the accommodation includes a communal reception hall leading to the apartment, which has a good sized entrance hall from which all the rooms lead and benefits from three useful storage cupboards, a lovely sitting/dining room with large bay sash windows overlooking the communal gardens, a well appointed kitchen with a good range of cream shaker style wall and base units, a large double bedroom with two sash windows overlooking the front, an en-suite shower room, a further spacious double bedroom (currently used as a second sitting room) with two sash windows and a door leading out to the communal gardens and a bathroom.
The property is approached through stone pillars over a shared driveway to a communal parking area that also provides visitor parking.
