    About this property

    • Situated in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offering well-balanced accommodation arranged over three floors, Linkhurst is a generous family home that has been updated and extended to create sociable and free-flowing accommodation.

      The property dates back to the early 1900's and displays a collection of charming period features typical of this era, with later additions in 2015, converting the former stable and hay barn into a stylish, open-plan kitchen/family room with vaulted ceilings and bespoke details throughout, including curved oak steps lowering to the dining area, and a striking picture window surrounded by oak cladding framing the impressive far-reaching views. Steps rise from the dining area into the former hay loft, which now serves as a flexible space that can be arranged to suit.

      The contemporary kitchen is fitted with Neptune shaker-style units painted in 'Alpine' and topped with honed granite worksurfaces, together with a useful pantry, providing an abundance of storage and preparation space. Large glazed doors open to the terrace, with slate tiles creating a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor living areas.

      Benefitting from two bay windows providing an abundance of light, the well-proportioned drawing room is fitted with a charming open fire, with the cosy snug and study benefitting from wood-burning stoves and bespoke cabinetry. The studio/games room has much potential and can be accessed from both inside the house, and via an external door from the driveway, making it an ideal space for an annexe, subject to all necessary consents and permissions. The inner hallway leads to a large and practical boot room, which adjoins the sizeable utility room.

      Found on the first floor, the principal bedroom is of particular note, enjoying fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed en suite bathroom, with a walk-in shower and a contemporary free-standing bath, strategically placed to make the most of the wonderful view. There are two further double bedrooms, served by the well-appointed family bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms are situated on the second floor, together with a family shower room and two useful storage cupboards.

      The much-loved gardens and grounds extend to 5.86 acres, comprising a formal garden with a wide-spanning terrace, heated swimming pool, and a well-maintained tennis court, leading onto two paddocks, an area of woodland and two ponds. Well-stocked borders and flower beds provide an array of colour throughout the year. There is a vegetable garden with raised beds, together with a large greenhouse, fruit cage and three apple trees.

      The property is approached via an electric gate opening to the gravelled driveway, which provides parking for up to six vehicles. The driveway continues along the side of the house, giving access to the garage, garden store and studio/games room.

    For me, everything makes sense here as soon as you walk into the kitchen and the house becomes super special.
