Mature shrubs and flower beds with a pretty, low-level brick wall and wooden picket fence runs along the front boundary of the property. The rear gardens can be reached from kitchen door, or via steps from the conservatory which lead down to a terraced area, perfect for al-fresco entertaining.

A two-storey double garage is situated at the bottom of the driveway and the property also benefits from a separate store room and large, covered wood store.
THE AREAThe parish of Hartfield is situated in the Weald of Sussex and has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village sits on the north side of Ashdown Forest and the south bank of the River Medway and is most famous for being the home of Winnie the Pooh. The village has a lovely sense of community, with local stores, a public house and primary school. The ancient market town of East Grinstead is 6 miles north west, and the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells is just over 8 miles north east. Both towns have an array of restaurants, shops, leisure facilities and offer fast and frequent train services into Central London. There are a good selection of schools in the area, in both the state and independent sectors and if you wanted to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can be reached in approximately one hour.
