Set in an elevated position with fabulous far reaching views, this impressive, architect designed 4 bedroom home, nestled on a south facing slope of the Rother Valley between the pretty village of Wittersham and historic Cinque Port town of Rye, would suit both modernists and traditionalists alike.

On approaching the property, you could be fooled into thinking it is a traditional Kentish style cottage, but nothing could be further from the truth. Cleverly designed and extended to marry the old with the new, this bespoke detached home extends to just over 2,000 square feet of exceptional living space (excluding garaging and outside storage). While the modern largely open-plan living rooms take full advantage of their south facing aspect and breathtaking location, with a simple palette of materials and large expanses of glazing allowing an emphasis on the natural light and framing the amazing views across the beautiful garden to the Rother levels in the distance, the older period parts of the house offer a cosy retreat away from the World outside.

This property also benefits from a large detached contemporary double garage with electric roller door and sedum roof, very useful workshop / store, lovely mature gardens with established trees, shrubs and further storage, and from having immediate access to the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Entrance Hall 18' 4" x 6' 4" (5.59m x 1.93m)
The front door opens into an entrance hall which in turn opens out into the dining / family room at the back of the house. A beautiful oak floor helps to connect these areas and gives a warm, welcoming feel. Doors to bedroom 4, utility and family bathroom. A small inner lobby gives access to bedroom 3 and the staircase to the first floor. Loft hatch.

Dining / Family Room 18' 4" x 15' 6" (5.59m x 4.72m)
This light, bright, spacious room, which is open to the kitchen and snug, really has the "wow" factor. The solar reflective glazed roof lantern is a real feature, and the bi-folding doors across the back not only bring in huge amounts of natural light but also give wonderful views over the garden and countryside beyond. Oak floor with under floor heating. Stairs to split level.

Kitchen 16' 7" x 10' 2" (5.05m x 3.10m)
This light filled room, with its high spec kitchen and views over the garden, is both a functional space as well as a
beautiful one. There are a range of modern shaker style base units, drawers and cupboards with polished stone worktops and an inset one and a half bowl sink. The high end appliances include a NEFF double oven and AEG induction hob with extractor above, integrated dishwasher and built-in under counter freezer. Built-in cupboard with pull out larder unit and tall refrigerator.

Snug 16' 9" x 11' 3" (5.11m x 3.43m)

Bedroom 3 16' 11" x 10' 1" (5.16m x 3.07m)

Modern white suite comprising: double ended bath, separate corner shower, low level WC and wash hand basin with storage below. Heated towel rail. Velux window.

Principal Bedroom / Dressing Area 21' 5" x 12' 6" (6.53m x 3.81m)
This beautiful triple aspect bedroom, which forms part of the old cottage, has period charm in abundance. In addition, the flue from the wood burner in the snug makes an interesting feature, and two small steps serve to divide the main bedroom from the dressing area. Built-in wardrobe.

"Underhill" is approached up a flight of stone steps, at the bottom of which is a large double garage with electric roller door, electric pod point, sedum roof, and off-road parking for up to 3 cars. The landscaped front garden is terraced to one side with mature planting and to the other a lawned area houses a pretty outbuilding which is currently used as a workshop / store. A gate to the side of the house leads to the beautiful rear garden, which has spectacular views towards the Rother Levels in the distance, and is a nature lover's haven. Two south facing terraces on different levels lend themselves perfectly to entertaining, relaxation and sun worshiping. There are also some wonderfully mature trees, among them a magnificent copper beech and magnolia. At the bottom of the sloping garden there is a shed with power connected, and landscaped terraces which provide additional seating areas and places to grow fruit and vegetables.
