    • Highfield House occupies a lovely elevated, central position amidst its mature gardens and grounds totalling about 5.89 acres, set off a rural country lane under 1.6 miles from the historic town of Rye.

      This detached home is understood to date from the 1930's and has been extended over the years. Internally, the accommodation includes a glazed porch; a hall; a well proportioned south facing sitting room featuring a dual sided wood burning stove and sliding doors to a terrace; an adjacent dining room with French doors to the garden; a study/home office; a triple aspect games room with designated bar area and an interconnecting conservatory.

      The kitchen/breakfast room, equipped with fitted cupboards includes a Leisure range cooker. There is space for a free-standing fridge/freezer, fridge and dishwasher and the utility room has further space for white goods.

      Guest bedroom four with shower and WC facilities, together with a cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

      On the first floor are three double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have balconies with southerly views and the main bedroom has an en suite shower room. The other bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath.

      Highfield House is approached over a winding private drive flanked by sloping lawns and leading up to the ample parking and triple garage block accessed via electric doors. Attached is a home office, WC and workshop/mower store with separate double doors. External stairs lead to a substantial first floor store room.

      The gardens surround the house and are down to lawn and interspersed with horse chestnut, sequoia and silver birch trees. To the north is a partially enclosed field with a corrugated barn store. Further outbuildings include a summerhouse, greenhouse and store housing a jacuzzi/hot tub.
