Situated at the head of a long driveway, Ashlands is a striking Gothic Victorian house surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds that provide the most stunning views, as well as looking down onto the National Trust owned Batemans, the former home of Rudyard Kipling .
Ashlands is believed to date back to 1852, constructed of stone under a tile hung roof. The accommodation extends to over 6,000 sq ft arranged over three floors, the space is well balanced between formal and informal
living, the rooms are light and airy with impressive ceiling heights, ideal for entertaining, as well as less formal
The reception rooms are accessed off the large hallway. The drawing room provides glorious views and French
windows that lead into the garden. Beyond the drawing room is where the kitchen is which is well equipped with a
central work island and oil-fired Aga. Also on the ground floor is the secondary kitchen and utility room. The stairs
next to the kitchen lead down to the vast cellar, that provides extremely versatile space with the possibility to extend the property massively.
The first floor is well served with accommodation, with a good-sized master bedroom suite complete with a
bathroom. There are five further bedrooms on the first floor. Accessed off the first floor is a self-contained annexe complete with two bedrooms, large bathroom, kitchen and sitting room. The second floor currently provides three further bedrooms and a large unconverted attic space that could be used for a number of uses.
The Coach House, positioned to the east of the main house, originally the stable boys flat and still complete with the original fire place, the current owners have extended the property extensively and it now provides ample living space with five bedrooms and over 1,900 sq ft of accommodation on two floors. The coach house has been run for the last 21 years as a very successful holiday rental business. The business is available to be purchased by separate negotiation.
Adjacent to the Coach House is the Hayloft and garaging, which was built by the current owners in 2005. On the
ground floor is the extensive indoor garaging complex which can easily accommodate four cars. Above the garaging is the self-sufficient Hayloft apartment complete with one bedroom and bathroom, kitchen and living room. The Hayloft is included in the holiday letting business.
Sitting within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the gardens and grounds are an important feature of Ashlands and form the most delightful and tranquil setting, complementing the house extremely well.
