About this property

  • Approached over a private track to a winding drive and surrounded by rolling farmland, High Buildings Barn is an incredibly characterful property offering versatile accommodation with an emphasis on open living spaces. The centrepiece is a fabulous 59' reception with vaulted beams, large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the grounds and beyond to neighbouring pasture. On the ground floor is a lovely kitchen with a dining area leading through to a cosy sitting room. Complementing the kitchen is a separate utility room with a downstairs shower room and completing the ground floor accommodation is a bedroom with fine exposed timbers benefiting from an en suite shower room and WC. The first floor of the barn has two further bedrooms which are served by a centrally positioned bathroom.

    Directly adjacent to the barn is a substantial building offering ample storage, workshop and living opportunities. The central courtyard is a lovely sheltered space with mature trees offering shade, ideal for al-fresco entertaining and a series of additional outbuildings comprising stabling provide options to adapt (subject to any required consents).

    The setting of High Buildings Barn is of particular note, areas of garden with productive vegetable patches, interspersed with mature trees and level paddocks give a sense of openness with a glorious backdrop of the rolling Sussex landscape.

High Buildings Barn really is idyllic with views over farmland and complete peace and quiet. I find the main barn itself so impressive with its vaulted beamed celling and feeling of space.
