Off the kitchen is a utility room with fitted units and space for washing machine and drier.
On the other side of the hall is a good sized dining room with boarded floor, French doors to the conservatory and double doors to the sitting room. The conservatory has floor to ceiling windows, a roof lantern and bi-fold doors onto the raised deck. The sitting room is an excellent size and has French doors at each end and an exposed brick fireplace with oak bressumer and flagstone hearth. There is also a snug/bedroom 5, which has an adjoining study overlooking the front garden.
Stairs lead up from the hall to a galleried landing with a large window overlooking the gardens. There are 2 large bedroom suites, both of which are double aspect with beautifully appointed shower rooms, one of which also has an adjoining store room. There are 2 further bedrooms upstairs, one with a wall of fitted wardrobes, and a lovely family bathroom with roll top bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and basin.
From the lane an electric 5 bar gate opens onto a gravel drive, which leads up to a parking and turning area in front of a double garage and to an impressive terrace leading up to the front door and across the front of the house. The drive is flanked by lawn, flowerbeds and mature trees and paths lead around the sides of the house to the main garden where there is a raised, deck with steps down to a broad expanse of lawn. Steps lead down to a lower lawn with fruit trees and on the eastern side of the garden is a stable, areas of hardstanding and beyond a paddock area enclosed by mature trees.
From East Grinstead head south on A22 through Forest Row and at the second roundabout turn left onto the B2110 towards Hartfield. At Colemans Hatch turn right at the church and proceed to the end of this road. At the crossroads go directly across to the bottom of the hill and turn left over the splash. Proceed along the lane for about ¾ mile and the house will be found on the left.
