Once in a while you get to visit somewhere that has a very different and special feel to it, a complete package where accommodation and setting both intrigue and delight you.
Every home offers something unique and some more so than others. It's lovely to visit somewhere that provides a great sense of anticipation and when visiting it you just seem to get one thrill after another. The thought of living somewhere like this fills you with excitement and the wonder of what it must feel like to enjoy the same pleasure day after day.
The opportunity to have a home beside Hadlow Castle is a big enough thrill for most of us, it is an iconic landmark and, since its restoration, it gleams on the skyline overlooking the old village of Hadlow. Approaching the property as you do through impressive gates almost seems like the start of an adventure, you meander along a lane picking your way past a handful of unique homes, you turn a corner and farmland stretches away in front of you, a brilliant English country landscape and as you turn a little more, suddenly the tower is there and it grabs your attention, an awe inspiring gothic fantasy creation. Then you realise there is a little more exploring to do and you discover this fabulous home our clients have finally decided to move from after many happy years.
Pulling up on the driveway you feel as if you have left the world behind which is quite beguiling and deceptive. Hadlow village square with its butchers, bakers and greengrocers is actually a simple walk from here.
This is a home that seems to embrace you as you approach, there is a wonderful sense of privacy and of course as you look back you have the incredible backdrop of Hadlow Tower.
The gardens are enclosed and lawn seems to stretch away, it's a great garden, not too big but plenty to enjoy and work with. The home has an eye catching appearance with that huge bow to the front, a space that makes for a stunning living room and ensures you get the best light and view of the tower. It is an intriguing home; the dining room opens off the living room and has an extension to the side that again brings light in and provides a view over the garden to the side and sight of the tower. Two bedrooms downstairs can be used however you wish, one is currently a spacious study. Upstairs there is interesting scope. A lovely master bedroom to the right will please most people wanting a spacious room. To the left there are two rooms which we would certainly think of bringing into one. The designer in you may look at the whole first floor and redesign it, who knows. The delight is that there is opportunity here if you want it and beautiful accommodation already so no need to change it.
We've already mentioned Hadlow village and it has a range of facilities, is renowned for the agricultural college and Broadview Gardens. Tonbridge with its main line station is just down the road, a simple commute to London and provides excellent schools as well. If you have cause to be in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks or Maidstone then all are easily accessible from here and the joy is, you get to come home to a truly special property in an incredible setting.
We can't wait to show you around.
