Originally built in the 1960s, the house was transformed 20 years ago into this striking, contemporary home, set in over 5 acres of stunning countryside with views across East Sussex and Ashdown Forest from its soaring glazed spaces. The property was designed by award-winning architects M M M, famous for their work with Swarovski, Chelsea Harbour and the Lakes by Yoo, and for their reputation for innovative and inspirational architecture in both the private and commercial sectors around the world. A considered used of glass throughout the home makes it feel bright and airy, with the minimalist design focussing the attention on the views. The glass is prevented from overheating by the use of solar control window film across the home, and there is underfloor heating throughout.
The accommodation extends to some 3923 sq ft, with the ground floor rooms accessed from a double height glass roofed corridor running the length of the house. At the heart of the home is the modern curved kitchen/dining room, with stunning views, access to the terrace and a well-appointed cooking and food preparation area. The rest of the ground floor accommodation includes a sitting room with doors out to the terrace, a family room/area which then leads to the two downstairs bedrooms and these are well served by a family bathroom. A dramatic central atrium offers a further relaxing area with recessed seating and there is an enclosed spiral staircase which leads up to the Principal suite which has amazing views to the rear across the open countryside. On this floor there is also a generous dressing room with study area and a bathroom with shower cubicle and freestanding bath and views across the front garden. At the opposing end of the house is a further sitting room, shower room and kitchenette with stairs up to a mezzanine bedroom. Whilst the house has a wonderful, open plan, modern feel to it, there are several pocket doors throughout to allow for areas to be closed off for a more cosy atmosphere.
The property is approached over a private driveway leading to a parking area for several vehicles and a detached single garage. There are lawns to the front and rear, the latter being west-facing and having stunning elevated views over the countryside beyond. There is an expansive terrace adjoining the house ideal for entertaining, with the gardens arranged in lawned tiers below and interspersed with mature planting. At the end of the garden, a five-bar gate opens to a paddock, an area of woodland and a stableyard where there are three loose boxes, a tack room and feed store.
Greenmead is set in the desirable hamlet of Five Ashes just two miles away from the picturesque, village of Mayfield, which is situated in a conservation area and is much loved by residents for its local community, character properties, eclectic array of shops, quaint public houses and cafes along with the renowned Middle House Hotel and Restaurant. Tunbridge Wells is 11 miles distant and has superb facilities including a cinema, theatre and the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre. There are fast, direct train services to the London from Jarvis Brook Station (4.6 miles), whilst the A21 trunk road connects with the M25. There is an excellent choice of schooling in the area at primary and secondary levels, in both the state and private sectors such as Mayfield School for girls, Uplands Community College in Wadhurst, Benenden and Bede’s in Lower Dicker.
