A wonderful edge of village family house in a mini country estate' setting with lovely gardens and grounds, secondary converted barn, outbuildings, swimming pool and tennis court.
Grade II listed and originally dating from the 16th century, with modern alterations and extensions, this charming character family house was once an even larger estate, but retains exceptional infrastructure, including substantial outbuildings and a generous land-holding, where the present owners have recently planted a large number of fruit trees.
The house itself offers an abundance of character, with spacious light rooms, exposed timbers and generous ceiling heights, including vaulted beamed ceilings to the two main bedrooms. The accommodation offers a surprising modern, open-plan layout downstairs and also has a good ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms upstairs.
The property benefits from an attractive setting which greatly adds to its appeal, with dual approach driveways. One of these is very long, giving access off Stonebridge lane and also accesses the secondary outbuilding. The other drive is shared, with right of way for the neighbouring property, leading down to an approach off the Lewes Road (B2192).
The rear garden and grounds are very special, having been attractively laid out with specimen shrubs and some magnificent mature trees. Amenities include a beautifully set swimming pool and tennis court, with a shower/changing room in the cart lodge and also the secondary outbuilding, which provides supplementary accommodation and would make an excellent party venue, or home office.
In addition, there is the option to convert the open bay cart lodge, at the end of the formal garden behind the house into an annexe - see planning reference WD/2020/1207F.
