Outstanding attached Victorian family residence with stunning rural views, on the edge of the popular village of Wadhurst, offering flexible accommodation, double garage and beautiful gardens. EPC F
This impressive property enjoys far-reaching views over the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a perfect example of a classic Victorian family residence, dating back to 1886, and was the main house on the original Riseden Estate. It was divided many years ago and is attached front to back with Riseden but benefits from its own driveway and grounds. The current owners have completely refurbished and improved West Riseden to a very high standard. It is immaculately presented and incorporates the very best fixtures and appliances including Bulthaup kitchen, Gaggenau appliances, a Sonos sound system in entertaining areas of the house and on the second floor, and beautiful wooden floors in the reception rooms. The house also retains many period features including high ceilings, impressive sash windows and French doors leading out to a terrace on the ground floor and a roof terrace on the second floor.Outside, the property is approached via an electronically operated gated entrance over a gravel driveway leading to a parking area and garage. The immaculately kept gardens have been completely re-landscaped and are a particular feature. They have been divided into different sections and include lawned areas, well-stocked flower borders and mature hedging. A path leads down to a heated swimming pool with a paved terrace surrounding. A further path leads down to an attractive secluded seating area and a wonderful Gabriel Ash plant house. In all the property extends to about 0.39 acres.
