The property has benefited from sympathetic updating and extending to provide a deceptively spacious family home respecting and retaining many of the original features such as wooden sash windows, panelled doors and fireplaces.
No.3 Rotherfield Lane is conveniently situated only a short walk from the historical village of Mayfield described as “the sweetest village in England” by the poet Coventry Patmore.. The old village has a great charm and is largely un-spoilt by modern day alterations offering a range of local amenities including eateries, butchers, bakers and general stores to name but a few. There is a regular bus service to Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne. Excellent local schools are both within the village and close by, including a pre-school and primary school. The village is famous for its bi-yearly Music Festival attracting London orchestras to perform in a variety of locations including St Dunstan’s Church and St Leonard’s Girls School. The village is a vibrant and pleasant place to live, offering a number of local societies, cricket and tennis club yet within an hour’s train journey to London.
From the entrance hall a door leads into the light and airy Sitting Room on the front of the house with bay window and feature fireplace. There is a working log burner. The house benefits from a ground floor cloakroom. To the rear of the property is the large Kitchen/breakfast room with fully integrated appliances including a range cooker with extractor above and feature island housing the butler sink and integrated dishwasher. There is a further seating area with built in cupboards enclosing a utility unit housing a washing machine and tumble dryer.

To the rear is a further bedroom and generously sized family bathroom which includes a walk in separate shower and bath.

The front garden sits elevated from the road with traditional iron railings and the rear garden can be accessed via a side access.
The rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect providing paved terraces and a low maintenance garden. There is a gate leading out to the rear private road and there is potential to re-instate a parking area to the rear which the current owners took away.
