DescriptionRound Oak is an attractive 1920s Arts and Crafts house with vertical hanging tiles above brickwork. A generous and deceptive amount of accommodation space is arranged over 2 floors and includes a kitchen/diner, four further reception rooms, five bedrooms and three bathrooms and although this is undoubtedly a large house due to the number and configuration of the rooms, one of its real charms is its cosy and intimate feel. Period features can be found throughout and include oak beams, solid oak floors, magnificent panelling, open fires and wonderful leadlight windows. A further feature of this house is its unrivalled location: its situation is just a short walk away from the town centre of Wadhurst and yet it backs onto open countryside providing beautiful views. Commuters will love this superb location which means that the property’s sense of space and tranquillity is combined with a highly convenient location: Wadhurst mainline station, with regular trains to London, is just a short drive away.

A splendid inglenook fireplace is a focal point of the spacious and bright living room, with built in bookshelves and cupboards. This in turn leads in into the fabulous colonial style garden room, with its many leadlight windows, attractive wooden ceiling and open aspect to the rear gardens.
