About this property

  • Situated about 0.5 of a mile from the pretty village of Burwash is Sellars Brook, a detached well presented family home, understood to date originally from the late 19th century with later additions. The property benefits from attractive, well established gardens together with an air source heated swimming pool, a detached studio/home office, garaging, ample parking and delightful woodland and fields, in all amounting to over 10.5 acres.

    The internal accommodation offers flexibility and currently features a well proportioned double reception room, divided by a fireplace with Morso Squirrel wood burning stove and two sets of French doors opening to a terrace. A southerly facing conservatory, also with doors to the terrace, has been added by the current owners.

    The light and airy kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive range of modern cupboards, a wall mounted oven, combi oven, induction hob, extractor fan and dishwasher with space for a fridge/freezer. French doors open to the terrace and garden beyond. A pantry/utility area off the kitchen, has space for white goods.

    There is a principal bedroom on the ground floor with wall to wall cupboards and a further bedroom four/ study. These bedrooms are served by a modern bathroom, with electric underfloor heating, fitted by HKS Interiors of Heathfield.
    On the first floor are two further bedrooms and a shower room fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware.

    Sellars Brook is approached via double wooden gates leading to a generous area of parking. There is a secondary drive to the north of the house and a five bar gate gives access to part of the garden and through to the field.

    The gardens are very well established, with terraced areas, specimen trees and natural ponds. Cherry and eucalyptus trees divide the garden and fields to the south west and there are two separate areas of native woodland to the south and northwest of the property, providing a haven for wildlife.

This property with its lovely gardens, woodland and fields is a wonderful wildlife haven but it also really conjured up the 'swallows and amazons' adventure for me!
