This beautifully presented and spacious period house has been stylishly updated to offer the perfect country home for larger families or groups and has an additional self-contained annex. Originally an Edwardian gatehouse, Cryals Lodge was re-designed and renovated with indoor and outdoor entertaining in mind; added features include a Finnish barbecue hut. The property sits within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by apple orchards and rolling countryside.
Entering Cryals Lodge (ref UK31934) via the porch/boot room, a second glazed door leads into the large reception hall, with a striking galleried landing, skylights and large seated/entertaining area. The hall features traditional oak parquet flooring and a balustrade staircase rising up to the first floor. A ‘den’ featuring a Smart TV and gaming console is just off the hall. The living room has a parquet floor, bespoke fitted oak cupboards, a cosy dual-aspect (to the hall) glazed gas fire and wide bi-folding doors opening out to a decked ‘outdoor lounge.’ There is a generously proportioned family kitchen/breakfast room with corian work tops, a central island unit/breakfast bar, walnut veneered cupboards and fitted Neff appliances. The room has bi-fold doors opening out to a large patio and barbecue area with furniture and daybed. The dining room, open plan to the kitchen, is presented in a period style with louvred shutters and features a large oak dining table seating 10-12. The galleried landing on the first floor features a cushioned window seat enjoying a view over the garden and on to the orchards beyond. The master bedroom suite has a dressing room and a well-appointed en-suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms, two sharing a shower room, and a stylish family bathroom.
Outside, the gardens have a contemporary feel and are bordered by high mixed hedging to the boundary offering total privacy. Landscaped terraces span the doors to the living areas, creating flexible space for summer entertaining and merging into a good area of level lawn. A outdoor shower sits alongside the house and a purpose-built Finnish barbecue hut, complete with electricity, reindeer skins and a central cooking grill can seat up to 12 people for cosy evenings together. An enclosed field of about 1½ acres provides additional space close by, ideal for children and animals.
Cryals Annex (ref UK31935) features an open plan living space (with fully fitted kitchen) and bi-folding doors leading out to a decked terrace. A ground-floor bedroom and bathroom are in separate rooms. Spiral stairs take guests to a well-proportioned first floor bedroom/studio with en-suite facilities, with views over the garden.
The property is conveniently located in a semi-rural position about 1 mile from the popular village of Matfield, within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Beauty and on the High Weald Landscape Trail. Cryals is about 4 miles from Paddock Wood / 8 miles from Tonbridge mainline stations, with regular services to London Bridge, Charing Cross and Cannon Street in about 45 minutes. Shops 4 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
