A good size single storey two bedroom detached cottage, set in attractive gardens together with stables, which have planning permission for replacement with a one bedroom annexe, and just under two acres of field and woodland in a lovely semi-rural location close to local amenities and main line station.
The cottage was converted from farm buildings a number of years ago by the current owner and now provides very practical living and entertaining space together with an integral garage, all set on one level, with pretty gardens which lead down to a stream and woodland which in turn opens on to a pasture field of approximately 1.5 acres. The dwelling and gardens very much cater for disabled living, with no internal or external steps. Adjacent to the cottage is a timber stable block which has the benefit of planning consent for replacement with a one bed annexe.

The popular village of Rotherfield is about a mile away to the east and offers a good range of day to day amenities including cafe, village store & post office, doctors surgery and two public houses.

The accommodation is arranged over one floor with a remote entry door, double glazing throughout and under floor heating. Briefly, the space comprises a sizable open-plan living room with fireplace and modern fitted kitchen to one end with vaulted beamed ceiling, a garden room/conservatory – also with vaulted ceiling and French doors opening out onto the terrace and gardens, master bedroom with en suite Shower (wet) room, second bedroom and further separate shower room.
The integral single garage is connected via an internal entrance and hallway with a useful utility area whilst the garage fronts the driveway with an up and over door.
The house has a gated driveway which leads down to the front of the house and garage, providing parking for a number of cars. The gardens essentially lie to the south of the house; a patio area immediately next to the house with raised fish ponds leads onto an extensive area of lawn which in turn leads down to a timber decked seating area with summer house and garden shed. Fencing separates the stables and a strip of land from the main part of the house and garden and gives access to the field which is accessed across a small stream and walking up through light woodland amongst which is set a World War II Pillbox. The pasture field is approximately 1.5 acres – and with the woodland, gives a total area of nearly 2 acres. There is the possibility of acquiring a further 3.5 acres by separate negotiation.
