This is one of those homes that surprises you. A mere glimpse from the road and, as you approach, the bungalow broadens in view and the garden is one that gives a joyful feeling.
With a young family at the time, the current owners were drawn here as they searched for a home that provided more space outside, a rural lifestyle and access to great schools.
When searching, staying near Battle, the historic heart of '1066' country, was a consideration as was access to a train station. Roberstsbridge (4 miles) is just one of those that can be easily reached from here.
Nestled within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) this piece of Sussex countryside is surprisingly easily missed by those who don't know it and very much cherished by those who do. A first trip to look here made it easy to settle upon this detached bungalow.
Through the following eighteen years the combination of home and location have given the family wonderful memories and experiences, treasured ones that will go with them in the next phase of their lives.
You will find a wonderful garden when you visit, the whole plot is approximately 0.44 acres and there are fruit trees, (this home was once a farm) a magnificent eucalyptus and shrubs surrounding lawns in a layout that makes time spent outside a delight; it is most definitely somewhere for entertaining and for having fun.
There is a place for chickens if you fancy having some, places for sitting and relaxing and plenty of space for running around.
Inside this lovely bungalow are rooms that can fit any number of lifestyles from one with a young family to one where children have grown and flown the nest. There's scope for change should you be minded to explore that.
Solar panels have been installed to reduce outgoings and have provided an income also.
Set back from the road there is parking for many cars, a garage that has been split to provide storage to the front and an office to the rear.
Nearby are local shops, a garden centre and you don't have to drive far to find special places like The Hub at Bodiam; of course, you have Bodiam Castle (2.7 miles) and Steam Railway Station nearby too. Bodiam Station is on the Kent and East Sussex Railway line to Tenterden, a fantastic way to explore the history of railway.
One of the largest woodlands in England is barely two miles from the doorstep and encompasses nine named ancient woods (at least 400 years old) plus provides a home to dormice, deer, turtle doves and glow worms.
The town of Battle is only around nine minutes’ drive away, about four and a half miles and that ease of access was a big consideration when moving here.
Staplecross has a wonderful community, busy Village Hall with clubs and groups, a Post Office/Village Shop, pub and The Ewhurst and Staplecross Bonfire Society, one of the Sussex 'Bonfire Boyes' societies and a yearly event not to be missed!
This is a location from which so much beautiful countryside can be accessed, delightful villages, landmarks and towns are easy to reach as is the coast and at the end of each day you get to return to a lovely home and peaceful garden!Get in touch if you like this home.
