Woods Place has a wealth of charm retaining many of the original features dating back in parts to 1825 and sits on the top of a hill with stunning views down the valley. Originally the village bakery, it now forms a substantial family home with the most wonderful views from every window in the house. It is located within walking distance of the village Post Office/grocery shop and the local pub renowned for its warm welcome. There is a village church, local primary school and village hall with its own snooker room, offering a range of activities and forming the hub of the village. The location is pleasantly rural without feeling remote and only a short drive from the country town of Heathfield with its range of high-street supermarkets, including Waitrose. Stonegate station is a 15 minute drive away with mainline services into London. The front door opens into the large and spacious breakfast room with Welsh slate flooring and a working baker's oven, leading into the vaulted beamed kitchen with its range of hand painted base level cupboards and a mixture of granite and wooden block work surfaces. There is a butler sink and working oil fired Aga, complimented with an electric double oven and hob and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. The inner oak beamed hall leading off has doors to the Study/5th bedroom, downstairs cloakroom, basement/utility and sitting room. The double aspect spacious sitting room features an inglenook brick feature fireplace, working log burner and a wealth of oak beams.

A door from here with stairs leads to the upper hallway with an extremely large and spacious master bedroom that enjoys French doors and access to a balcony to enjoy the amazing sunsets over this area of outstanding beauty. There are a further three bedrooms enjoying views from every window and a feature bathroom with recessed lighting which includes a freestanding roll top bath and walk-in large shower, complimented with bidet and toilet. The rear cottage garden sits to the side of the house and is laid to lawn with a westerly aspect and includes a large timber summerhouse. The paved driveway offers parking for several cars via large gates from the road and to the side of this is the potential to build a raised barbecue area, which would enjoy the wonderful views.
