Mill House is understood to date from the early 19th Century, with later additions and has been sympathetically and stylishly improved by the current owners. The house is well presented, providing bright accommodation over two floors. Period features include an inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove in the sitting room, lovely wooden doors and sash windows.
The partially open plan kitchen/dining room/family room is a particular feature of the house. The kitchen includes a central island unit with breakfast bar and a range of matching units with a Neff stainless steel fronted double oven with a microwave over. There is also a four-ring induction hob and a boiling tap. A wide opening leads through from the kitchen to the dining room which has a central roof lantern and glazed doors leading out to the garden. Adjacent to the dining room, and again semi-open plan to it, is a well-proportioned family room. A generous study/snug, utility and cloakroom completes the ground floor. In addition, there is a useful cellar.
Arranged over the first floor is the principal bedroom with an ensuite shower room, three further bedrooms and a luxuriously appointed family bathroom which is fitted with a white suite comprising both a bath and separate shower.
Mill House lies in a convenient, elevated position close to the southern edge of the old market town of Heathfield. The High Street is just over a mile and provides an excellent range of shops and amenities for everyday needs, including several supermarkets, one being Waitrose. The nearby countryside is cross-crossed by a network of footpaths.
The regional centre in the area, Royal Tunbridge Wells, is about 13 miles, whist the historic county town of Lewes is about 15 miles. For those needing access to London, Stonegate Station is about 6 miles and provides a frequent service to London – London Bridge, Charing Cross, Cannon Street in about 1 hour 15 minutes. There are an excellent selection of well-regarded state and private schools in the area.
An old brick path leads through the front garden up to the front door. The path is bordered on either side by two lawns. The principal garden lies to the rear of the house and has been attractively landscaped and planted over the years.
The garden includes a good sized lawn, a sheltered paved seating area which lies immediately adjacent to the dining room, various well-stocked borders and a pretty ornamental pond. Vehicular access to one side of the property leads to an area of parking for two cars.
