About this property

  • Hunters Farm is set in a wonderful, slightly elevated rural position with impressive south-westerly views across its own gardens and grounds. The principal portion of the house has Georgian origins, with the oldest part dating from 1750, and over the years has been the subject of sympathetic additions and improvements. It presents graceful cream rendered elevations with white-framed casement windows and offers 4,117 square feet of elegantly proportioned and beautifully presented accommodation arranged over two floors, plus a cellar.

    The house is complemented by a two-bedroom Dairy Cottage offering excellent guest or staff accommodation, together with a swimming pool and gymnasium, a manege and good range of stabling, and a number of other outbuildings. The property is accessed by a long driveway and is surrounded by formal gardens, grounds and partially wooded pasture extending to over 50 acres.

    A further 188 acres of forest lying adjacent to the house to the west is available by separate negotiation.

Local information

  • Hunters Farm is situated on the outskirts of Nutley, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to Ashdown Forest. The property is rural yet not remote: Nutley, a thriving village is about one and a half miles distant and offers a village shop, two restaurants, church and primary school, while more comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities are found at Uckfield, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells.
  • Outdoor pursuits include golf, walking and riding; Sussex offers a superb cultural and arts scene, with world-class opera at Glyndebourne, theatre at Royal Tunbridge Wells and the annual Brighton Festival presenting a huge programme of theatre, dance, classical music and literary events.
  • The area offers excellent transport links with mainline rail services from Haywards Heath (London Bridge/Victoria from 42 minutes). The M25 orbital motorway can be accessed via the A23, linking to other motorway networks, Gatwick airport (18 miles) and central London (55 miles).
  • There are many highly regarded state and independent schools in the area, including Brambletye, Ardingly College, and Cumnor House prep school in Danehill.
  • All times and distances are approximate.

Additional information

  • Services: Oil fired central heating. Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. In 2014 a biomass boiler was installed which produces central heating and hot water for the house, cottage and pool (the last also heated by solar panels). In addition, under the government RHI scheme, the owner receives circa £7500 per annum (index linked) in payments for producing green energy. Currently the owners produce the woodchip to power the boiler from their own woodlands (188 acres also available by separate negotiation). Maintenance of the woodland is also supported by government grant. Alternatively woodchip can be easily purchased for around £5000 per annum.
