A rare opportunity to purchase a four bedroom detached character family home situated in an elevated position with a southerly aspect rear garden enjoying far reaching panoramic countryside views surrounding.
Springwell Cottage was once two Victorian cottages amalgamated into one around the 1960’s with further additions and was refurbished by the current owners about 11 years ago. The property boasts an elevated position with a southerly rear outlook over the historic Wealden village of Yalding with further far reaching panoramic countryside views beyond.
The accommodation is set over three floors with the ground floor benefitting from four reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room with a separate utility room and a downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor are two large double bedrooms with one incorporating an en-suite bathroom and there is a separate family shower room. On the second floor are two single attic bedrooms with sloping ceilings.
There are character features within including an exposed brick fireplace with a wood burner inset in the sitting room and some exposed beams throughout. Outside there is a large driveway providing ample off road parking and an attached garage with power and light. The garden wraps around the property benefiting from the aforementioned rear outlook and there is further potential to extend and develop subject to individual needs and the necessary permissions.
