A beautifully presented 4 bedroom, 17th Century Grade 2 Listed semi-detached property, set in the popular area of The Moor in Hawkhurst. Full of original features, this tile hung house features exposed beams throughout, dine in kitchen, separate sitting room, garage, off street parking and beautiful secluded landscaped gardens.
This is a beautiful, character property with a truly unique feel. The house offers a welcoming hallway, large drawing room with double aspect leaded windows and log burning stove, a large fitted kitchen with a selection of wooden wall and base units and a separate utility room and downstairs w/c. On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, one with luxury ensuite shower room and an additional family bathroom, elegantly painted in grey. The second floor is a fabulous space, currently used as a very generous fourth bedroom but with scope to utilise in various ways, depending on the new owners’ needs.
This house is full of character and has a real warmth and welcome to it. The inglenook fireplace in the sitting room is an incredible feature, and the original wooden staircase is a wonderful reminder to this house’s rich history. The house is beautifully presented in neutral, elegant tones throughout which allow the exposed beams to really showcase. While the house has been lived in very happily by the current owners, there is scope for further improvement, particularly with the second floor space which could be transformed into a magnificent suite. The storage throughout is good considering the age of the house, and the deep cupboards a very welcome feature.
The gardens are landscaped and interesting, with several seating areas with which to enjoy the seclusion and mature planting. The generous pond is currently home to koi carp and the garage and off street parking are a real bonus. Its location is also excellent, being set in this very attractive part of the village, characterised by period properties and green, open spaces, but all just a few minutes’ walk from Hawkhurst’s excellent amenities, which include a Waitrose Supermarket.
The popular area of The Moor is surrounded by a 13th century church, historic houses and cottages. Hawkhurst is an affluent village with a variety of independent shops, country pubs, hotels, a digital cinema and two supermarkets. There are excellent leisure facilities in the area, including Hawkhurst Golf & Country Club, Hawkhurst Tennis Club, Bedgebury Pinetum and beautiful Bewl Water. There are many schooling options locally in both the state and independent sectors, including the highly-regarded Cranbrook School. Stonegate (8 miles) and Staplehurst (10 miles) both offer regular mainline train services into central London with parking opportunities available at both stations. The vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells is only 14 miles to the north and has an array of well-regarded restaurants, a choice of supermarkets, extensive shopping, independent outlets and leisure facilities. The wonderful south coast beaches, including the bustling town of Hastings are also within easy reach.
