About this property

  • Framfield Lodge is a hidden gem; a most attractive period house enjoying a tucked away position at the end of a shared driveway and offering well-proportioned accommodation.

    The property now offers an exceptional opportunity for a family to breathe new life into this special home which benefits from an accessible location. Uckfield town centre is just 1.7 miles away with its excellent rail service and there is a wide choice of well-regarded schools in the area.

    Framfield Lodge has an air elegance with many rooms enjoying a light-filled southerly aspect. The high ceilinged reception hall is impressive and the interlinking principal reception rooms open out to a wide flagstone terrace, ideal for entertaining, together with a separate dining room and a large study.

    A characterful kitchen opens through to a breakfast room with doors to the garden and hand-painted friezes and there is ample domestic space by way of a large utility/laundry area, a boot room and useful store rooms.

    A galleried landing gives access to the five good-sized bedrooms and three bathrooms which complete the accommodation.

    Outside:
    Framfield Lodge is set within delightful established gardens which extend mainly to the rear and provide a lovely setting. The wide terrace merges to a level lawn with deep herbaceous and shrub borders and specimen trees to the boundary. Steps at the end drop down to a lower level with a swimming pool (in need of some attention).

    The striking front entrance comprises a wide gravel driveway for parking and turning and there
    are two garages in a block within the curtilage of the neighbouring property.
