Full description

Henry Adams are delighted to offer this much improved and beautifully presented 3 bedroom Edwardian home which enjoys a very generous rear garden and paddock, all set in the idyllic hamlet of Furners Green, on the edge of the Ashdown Forest.

The property offers well-proportioned and recently renovated accommodation, which briefly comprises an elegant and bright sitting room offering an open fireplace with wood burner and built in window seat with storage. The accommodation flows through to an equally light dining room with painted floorboards and an under stairs storage cupboard. A door from the dining room leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, which offers a range of country style cabinets, granite worktops, a fabulous Butler sink and ample space for a table and chairs. This in turn leads to a rear lobby and separate WC. From here there is a door to the rear garden.

The accommodation upstairs comprises a landing with doors to the three bedrooms and the bathroom. Bedroom one is a large double covering the entire width of the front of the house with a countryside view and a fitted wardrobe. Bedroom two is a double with painted floorboards, attractive wall shelves and a window to the side. Bedroom three again has painted floorboards and a window enjoying tremendous views over the rear garden and countryside beyond. The bathroom, which has a large shower bath, is a very light room benefitting from two large picture windows. This room has undergone complete renovation and offers a modern white suite with secret storage via the end bath panel.

Further attributes include a recently fitted boiler, oil tank and refurbished Klargester water treatment system.

Situation

Outside

Outside there is a driveway with parking for three cars to the side of the house, which leads to the rear garden via a five bar gate. Previously there was a garage built in the rear garden however this was removed but could easily be re instated as the hard standing has been retained. The rear garden is a real feature of this property. It is laid mostly to lawn with a selection of plants, shrubs and trees including a large weeping willow leading the eye to the open pastures beyond. There is plenty of room to develop a substantial vegetable plot and still have lots of space to entertain and let the children and animals run free! In addition to the garden there is also a well proportioned paddock which adjoins the rear garden and provides a further abundance of green space to enjoy; it is currently planted with a selection of new fruit trees. There is a large and useful outhouse which is currently used as a utility room and general store.

This unusually large plot provides an opportunity to extend the property extensively or re-purpose the outbuildings subject to the usual planning permissions.
