A beautifully presented end of terrace Georgian cottage in the heart of Ticehurst with 2/3 bedrooms, very generous living accommodation and a beautiful, secluded garden.
1 Hazelwood Cottages is a fabulous example of renovated Georgian cottage, bursting with period features yet offering an elegant and contemporary finish. This 18th Century cottage has well proportioned and flexible accommodation and is a lovely home, situated in the heart of Ticehurst on the very attractive High Street. The cottage is tastefully decorated in predominantly neutral tones throughout and provides generous accommodation and storage solutions over three floors. The garden is incredibly private and has been beautifully manicured with mature planting and offers a large pebbled courtyard as well as an area of lawn.
The front door opens onto the first reception room with a wonderful original fireplace and original wooden floor boards. This room is currently being used as a formal dining room as the room leads into the dine-in kitchen and a second reception room, again with magnificent fireplace and original floorboards. A large window overlooks the front and doors lead from here on to the lovely private courtyard and garden beyond. The eat in kitchen is fully fitted with white units and a wooden worksurface, and a log burning stove sits within the fireplace of the adjacent dining area. The third bedroom/study leads from this area and is finished with a contemporary wooden finish. The cellar is currently used as a utility room and also for wine storage but offers further scope for redevelopment if required.
Upstairs, the two good size double bedrooms are flooded with light thanks to the large original sash windows. The master bedroom also showcases a beautiful fireplace. The bathroom has been finished to a very high standard, perfectly blending a contemporary finish with traditional fixtures and fittings and has wonderful views over the Wealden countryside.
The garden wraps beautifully around 3 sides of the house with a very attractive courtyard leading around to a lovely private lawned area with mature planting which gives it an elegant and calm feel. The outside space is wonderfully sunny, very secluded and surprisingly spacious. There is a useful outbuilding, perfect for storage.
1 Hazelwood Cottages is a much loved home, immediately apparent by its internal presentation and in the improvements that the current owners have made to the house. The presentation is excellent and the cottage is very tastefully decorated – a perfect blend of period features and contemporary styling. The cottage retains tall skirtings and truly lovely fireplaces, along with original sash windows which flood the property with light. There is further room for improvement if required by utilising the cellar space differently but the current owners have used the space very successfully as a utility room / wine cellar / storage space. The garden feels like a romantic retreat being incredibly private and thoughtfully planted. Its location in the heart of this popular and well supported village, with its range of independent stores and the renowned The Bell pub, sees this lovely cottage also having the perfect situation.
