Grade II listed four bed farmhouse, detached two bed cottage and various outbuildings in an elevated situation with wonderful views across the Weald.
Ivy House Farm enjoys an elevated setting, with wonderful panoramic southerly views over its pretty established gardens and land, across the Weald and beyond towards Fairlight on the south coast.
The property having been in the same ownership for over 58 years, during which time it was a productive fruit farm, features an historic Grade II listed four bedroom farmhouse and a pretty detached two bedroom cottage, combined they amount to just under 3,000 sq ft and they offer the perfect opportunity for multi generational living.
Adjacent to the house are some very adaptable outbuildings incorporating the former farm offices, workshops and a now decommissioned double height 30ft x 15 ft cold store. They offer an exciting prospect for conversion, subject to all necessary planning consents.
The period farmhouse is believed to date from the 15th or early 16th century, with 20th century additions. It comprises two main reception rooms, an entrance hall, a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Neff ovens, integral fridge and dishwasher, a utility room and a garden room/conservatory. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, three with a dual aspect and lovely views, a bathroom and a separate WC. There is a further external WC.
Ivy Cottage lies a short distance away from the house to the south east. It consists of a pretty principally single storey property which was converted in 1997. The well presented split level accommodation with painted floorboards, includes a hall, a sitting room with wood burning stove, lovely views and French doors to a terrace. There is a dining room, a kitchen with space for various freestanding appliances and a door leading to the pretty enclosed garden for the sole use of the cottage. There are two bedrooms, served by a bathroom with modern white suite. Steps lead up to an extensive, extremely useful attic space, spanning the length of the house.
Ivy House Farm can be accessed via two separate entrances, where there is parking and access to the garaging. The gently sloping gardens stretch away to the south east, with lawns interspersed with an array of seasonal shrubs, perennials, specimen trees, two streams crossed by a little bridge, a pond and wild flower areas. There is a small cox apple orchard, a mower/log store and two greenhouses. Two parcels of land, formerly orchards, lie to the south and are bisected by a central track.
