Within a few minutes of being with the owners of this wonderful home, you'll realise how much fun they and their family have had here.
This is a home that, even when you're looking for it, is easy to miss the entrance. That was one of the things that attracted the owners originally.
When they first viewed, the bungalow looked nothing like it does now.
'We weren't sure if it was even worth looking at, it seemed a strange choice for us but two things caught our attention. The first was the convenience factor of living here, the second was the countryside around it.'
There was actually a third factor and that was the potential to turn the property into a home that would suit them and their family.
In extending the bungalow they have created something very special, a place that makes you go 'wow!', for a number of reasons.
The unassuming exterior really doesn't prepare you for what you discover once through the door. Everyone comments on the living room; the vaulted ceiling provides a sense of space and grandeur that is captivating. A wood burning stove provides the cosy charm that keeps the room real and homely. It is a great space to spread out in, especially when you have kids and it is fantastic for entertaining.
This is a home that caters to getting friends round. Outside there is plenty of parking and the garden has been designed to provide patio areas to sit out and chat and a lovely barbecue area overlooking the countryside to the rear. If your hounds become bothersome there’s a ready made corner for the kennel and to keep them in check.
The kitchen offers an expanse of working space with cupboards and drawers to keep all the essential items in and those 'once a year' things we all have or would like to have.
With now grown up children, the bedroom sizes are a real asset. The three double rooms feel spacious and each has a unique character.
A cloakroom, family bathroom and ensuite to the master bedroom make life easier in the mornings and when guests are around.
Outside there is a two bay car barn with log store to the side. One building is currently used as the gym and has an additional storage area and ‘workshop’. A huge asset for our clients has been the other building which makes a wonderful work space and could perhaps become somewhere for a relative to come and join you.
Living in a home is about much more than the property itself. We've already mentioned the home attracted our clients because of its convenience, that extends beyond just being able to get to places like Robertsbridge (less than six miles), Battle (approx six miles), Hastings (approx ten miles), Rye (approx ten miles) and both Cranbrook and Tenterden are less than twelve miles.
It is also about those Sunday walks to The White Dog Inn at Ewhurst Green. 'That's about a half hour walk from home' we're told and one of those things that you can't help but feel you want to do.
Staple Cross has a general store which houses the post office and there is a Primary School in the village, on Bodiam Road, less than a mile away from this property.
There are countless roads to explore, each providing unique views of delightful East Sussex, turn a corner and there is Bodiam Castle nestled in the valley below, there are hours of joyful discovery ahead and this is the perfect base to make memories from.Get in touch if you like this property.
