OFFERS IN EXCESS OF £700,000 - Almost Home are pleased to advertise Hoads Wood Cottage, a stunning, CHAIN FREE, individually designed 3 - 4 bedroom detached home which opens on to 2.4 acres of adjoining ancient woodland. Built to a very high specification, this property is located in one of the most sought after residential areas of St Leonards on Sea. 

Features include Inglenook fireplace with log burner, air conditioning, oak beams, spacious kitchen, separate dining room, double garage and parking for multiple vehicles.

In addition to the woodland, there are gardens to three sides which are a gardener's delight and a pergola for relaxation time in the summer heat.

The woodland provides wonderful leisure opportunities for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts.  There are no immediate development opportunities and applications to develop the land in the late 1980s were refused and appeals to the Secretary of State failed.

The trees are subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO04).  Details can be found on the Council's website.  This refers to a large area of ancient woodland known as Hoad's Wood.  Large parts of this woodland have been built upon over the years and that part remaining is being sold together with the house at 12 Vermont Way.     

Ancient woodland is a scarce commodity and even more so when it comes with direct access from a residential property.    

Vermont Way is a block paved cul-de-sac, consisting of 16 individually designed properties. 

The historic town of Battle with it's main line railway station is a 5 minute drive. The stunning Alexandra Park is minutes away. There are many schools in the local area with bus routes from the Battle Road. Major stores like Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda are all close by. The A21 is minutes away and if you feel like a work-out at the gym or a game of golf, you won't have far to go.
