The property is understood to date from the 17th century with later additions and provides well-arranged and interesting accommodation with a wealth of period features. The house has a lovely homely and spacious feel with good ceiling heights for a property of its age. The entrance hall gives an instant sense of space and the charming kitchen/breakfast room includes a four oven Aga, wide stone Inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and has a wooden floor. The dining room is exceptionally well-proportioned and includes a further large Inglenook fireplace also with a wood-burning stove. The drawing room is a lovely room with a wide bay window, attractive open fireplace, parquet floor and a door leading to the garden. To one end of the house is a large sitting room which is currently utilised as a home cinema room. A walk-in pantry, utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first there is a particularly spacious principal suite comprising bedroom, dressing room and en-suite bathroom with a roll-top bath, separate shower and stained glass window. Three further bedrooms and two shower rooms complete the first floor accommodation and on the second floor there is a fifth bedroom.
The property is approached via a sweeping driveway which is bordered by the property’s land. The garden provides a very special setting for the house and has been beautifully planted and landscaped over the years with various seating areas. Climbing the main elevation of the house are established roses and a white clematis. The garden includes a number of specimen trees, various lawns, a pond and a vegetable garden with various raised beds. Lying a short distance from the house is the charming swimming pool which is set into a wide paved surround and is situated within a sheltered courtyard, bordered by an extensive range of traditional agricultural buildings. The farm buildings include a traditional two-storey cart barn granary, two traditional single storey buildings, a traditional single storey former cow byre and a further former cow byre. Previous planning consent was granted for the conversion of the granary and outbuildings into a residential dwelling which has lapsed (reference WD/2014/1131/F). Prospective purchasers are advised that they must make their own enquiries of Wealden District Council. In addition, there is a large detached traditional Sussex barn. Beyond the garden and outbuildings, the land is divided into several pasture fields with two loose boxes. From the land and garden there are stunning far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside with the South Downs beyond. In all just over 16.5 acres.
