Overview

Within walking distance of the village centre and the local primary school, an imposingly handsome, Victorian village house of character surrounded by landscaped gardens. Believed to date from the 1870s, and although cannot be directly attributed, the house displays striking architectural features typical of the style of Norman Shaw. Exteriors are of red brick with attractive tile hanging to the first floor, under a tall, pitched tiled roof with intricate chimneys and a studded, Gothic style front door. There are fine, stone mullioned windows with leaded light glazing and some attractive exterior plasterwork to one side. Internally ceilings are tall, skirting boards deep and there is a variety of attractive fireplaces, including fine Adams style surrounds in the drawing and dining rooms. In the same family ownership for nearly sixty years, there is now the potential to renovate and upgrade the infrastructure to create the most marvellous, period family home to twenty-first century standards. Reception rooms are gracious, fully captivating the warm and welcoming atmosphere that pervades throughout the house and enjoying a fine prospect over the gardens through the large windows. The kitchen is supported by various domestic offices offering the potential for rearrangement or extension to form a large, sociable family living space. Accessed by an elegant staircase, the bedrooms are laid out over the upper two levels, serviced by two separate bathrooms on the first floor. Those on the first floor include the principal bedroom, which enjoys a dual aspect and fitted closets and a double bedroom that has been sub divided to form two singles, but which could easily be put back as one. The second floor has two characterful double bedrooms as well as a large attic room with potential.OutsideSet back and approached via a gravelled driveway, leading to a wide parking and turning area as well as the detached garaging, the well-established and colourful gardens extend to approximately 0.88 acres (0.36 hectares) and surround the house. There are large areas of level lawn, various shrubberies with mature rhododendrons and azaleas, mature trees and hedging. To the rear is a brick outbuilding with potential and there is a tennis court, now in need of some attention.SituationSituated towards the southern edge of Groombridge, the house is perfectly positioned for all that village life has to offer as well as for access to the lovely Ashdown Forest and local countryside via the network of public footpaths nearby. The thriving village of Groombridge has an active community with a local store, post office, bakery, various hostelries including The Crown in Old Groombridge and the village hall, which adjoins the village cricket ground.
