The well proportioned reception room features a stylish wood burning stove and wood flooring. There are 3/4 bedrooms and two well appointed bath/shower rooms on the first floor, the principal bedroom being fitted with an attractive range of bespoke wardrobes and enjoying a lovely outlook.

      Forming part of the walled garden, which is attached to a neighbouring outbuiding, the Barn enjoys a good level of privacy with a lovely red brick terrace accessible from the sitting room and the kitchen/breakfast room. The extensive grounds extend to about 5.86 acres in all and are a haven for wildlife, including swathes of woodland and several large ponds which will appeal to those looking to enjoy a rural life-style, with plenty of opportunity to fish for carp and large enough for a small rowing boat.

      Of particular note is the pretty brick and weather boarded outbuilding which lies within the grounds. Currently used as a garden store, and with an area of kitchen garden, this offers potential for conversion to provide further space, subject to all necessary planning permissions, including listed buildings consent.

      The area is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is well-served by public footpaths which enable lovely walks directly from the house towards Eridge Green, where there is a popular pub, the historic Eridge Park which lies on the other side of Sham Farm Road, and there is a private access track enabling a walk to the Huntsman at Eridge.
