Property Flirt: Can you guess the price?!


Oh I just *love* to nose around other people’s houses, don’t you?… I thought as much! Well welcome to Property Flirt, a brand new section of Muddy Stilettos Kent in which I’ll show you some pictures of a stunning local property, and drip feed you a few clues along the way, and all you have to do is guess the price! Together we can peep through the keyhole and pretend it’s actually us lazing by the infinity pool, knocking back cocktails at the mahoosive kitchen island or languishing on the plum velvet sofa in our state of the art media room. Sound like fun? *Manic clapping of hands and a lot of jumping up and down*. Well what are we waiting for! Let’s swing open those big white gates shall we?

Now our first property, a country-styled, winsome beauty, is the perfect family home for pony lovers – not only does it boast an uninterrupted outlook over gardens and fields of about 5.8 acres in total, it also comes with its own stables, and an option to purchase additional land, stabling and manège should you so wish. Whoa there, girl! Hold your horses – I can see you’re keen…


I say local, but this first property is actually just over the way, snuggling the Kent/East Sussex border in Eridge. You’ll find it off a small country lane between the rural hamlet of Eridge Green and Rotherfield village, about 5 miles South of Tunbridge Wells. Let’s turn the key and step inside shall we?


I’m picturing myself and the Mini Muddies sitting in this spacious kitchen/breakfast room while Mr Muddy toils away over the oil-fired Aga… Hang on a minute, I recognise the craftsmanship in those bespoke oak units – they can only be by Edmondson Interiors, those local masters of quality custom made kitchens. I want to stay *sigh* but it’s time to move on…




Want a few more clues to help with the price? As well as that attractive kitchen/breakfast room, there are three reception rooms, above, and a study, utility room, games room and five bedrooms (four of which are doubles) and the master bedroom has its own dressing area and en suite shower room. Very nice too. One of the big selling points of this property is the stunning and secluded grounds and stables. Shall we have a quick shifty?







So dreamy and peaceful, yes? This peach of a property is in a private setting with no overlooking neighbours, except those of a neiiiighing kind. I know this neck of the woods rather well, and it’s perfect horse riding territory, with woodland, bridleways and riding clubs all over the place. After visiting the paddock I think I’ve found my perfect spot for a Sundowner. Come, sit by me, there’s plenty of room in this garden gazebo.


Time to move off again, but looky here, another lovely spot to perch my derriere. Now what else to tell you? Well, between Tunbridge Wells (5.5miles) and Crowborough (5 miles) you’ve got great shops nearby as well as the lovely Rotherfield village (2 miles) with its pubs, village shop (with a post office inside), hairdressers and fab coffee shop. And of course, whether you’re looking for Primary, Secondary, Grammar or Prep – we know Kent’s got amazing schools.

Right then, you’ve had a good look around, leaned against the Aga stuck your head round the stables…time to guess that price! She’s a handsome house and that’s a lot of pretty impressive land. And the price for this piece of masonry gorgeousness? Well, you tell me! Take your guess, click here and let me know if you get within £5k of the asking price.
