Substantial house with Ashdown Forest views

Warren House is a Grade II listed Georgian/Palladian property dating in the main part from the 18th century, and located in an enviable position overlooking both its own gardens and grounds, as well as the nearby Ashdown Forest.

Room sizes and ceiling heights were designed to impress, while oak panelling, original fireplaces and decorative plaster ceilings are all features in the reception rooms downstairs. The generous principal bedroom suite upstairs also has very good proportions, as well as an elegant dressing room.

Accommodation comprises: porch, reception hall, drawing room, library/sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, larder, scullery, workship, domestic offices, sitting room, cloakroom and cellars on the ground level; plus the principal bedroom suite, five further bedrooms and three further bathrooms on the first floor.

Within the main house is also a self-contained flat which has a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a sitting room.

Outside, the gardens have been included in the RHS Yellow Book scheme in the past, and are very well regarded. A network of paths, walls and terraces ensure a tranquil atmosphere, while rhododendons are found in spring, alongside ancient wisteria. A tennis court and an indoor swimming pool are also to be found in the gardens, while the stables, woodland and a series of paddocks all lie beyond the formal garden away from the house. The land comes to over 11 acres.

Warren House is located around nine miles from Royal Tunbridge Wells which has very good local amenities as well as direct trains to London. There is bridleway and footpath access to the Ashdown Forest from the property.

The guide price is £2.95m. For further information please contact Chesterton Humberts on 020 7594 4746 or visit
