Enjoying marvellous, far reaching views over rolling countryside, Knowle Lodge is a charming, tile hung detached country house of character which originally formed part of the Knowle House estate. In a slightly elevated position, the house backs south and is therefore suffused with an abundance of natural light streaming in through the large windows and French doors with the wonderful outlook a constant draw from the majority of rooms. Styled with chic simplicity, the accommodation extends to in excess of 2,700 square feet and is laid out over two floors with wooden floors throughout the ground floor, landing and bathrooms, tiles in the kitchen/breakfast room with carpet in most bedrooms, along with fireplaces in the sitting room and family room. The kitchen/breakfast room is furnished with a range of wall and floor cabinets, tiled or Corian work surfaces and integrated appliances with French doors leading out to the rear terrace. Bedrooms are arranged on the upper level and include a master suite with a dressing area and en-suite bathroom, four further bedrooms serviced by a family shower room.
The property is located in an attractive setting on the outskirts of Frant, just under two miles from Wadhurst Station and three from Wadhurst town. Frant is a charming village with many attractive period properties surrounding the village green, a local shop and two public houses. The Royal Spa town of Tunbridge Wells has an eclectic range of specialist fashion and life style shops ranging from large department stores to quaint boutiques and cafes. With entertainment facilities about to be expanded further, the town has a wonderful history linked to the spa waters at The Pantiles, as well as two theatre/performance venues as well as large public parks and protected common land. The area is served very well by educational establishments for children of all ages, in both the state and private sectors. Schools include the primary schools in Frant and Wadhurst, Holmewood House Preparatory School and The Mead School in Tunbridge Wells, Mayfield School for girls in Mayfield and Sacred Heart in Wadhurst.
Set back behind mature hedging, the property sits within approximately 1.67 acres (0.68 hectares) of gardens and grounds. To the front there is ample hard standing for parking along with mature rhododendrons providing a riot of colour in the spring, lawns and herbaceous borders. To the rear, a wide terrace traverses the house, providing a wonderful place for outdoor entertaining while taking in the views. Sweeping lawns are peppered with mature trees, including some fruit trees and shrubs. A former stables now provides two loose boxes and a music/games room, which itself has been insulated.
