    About this property

    • Situated within a High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Golford Place is a beautiful example of a 17th century timber framed, former farmhouse and is believed to date from circa 1624 with later additions. Together with a detached unconverted, timber framed period barn which provides great versatility for a potential purchaser, they sit within well established, mature gardens and paddocks which amount to about 4.2 acres.

      The internal accommodation is well presented throughout, with a wealth of period features including inglenooks, oak beams and traditional latch doors. Three attractive and well- proportioned reception rooms include a sitting room with inglenook fireplace, a dining room with log burner and a family room. A vaulted kitchen incorporates a range of painted cupboards, granite work surfaces, integral dishwasher and electric Aga range cooker. Off the kitchen is a utility room with space for white goods, a boot room, shower room and additional bathroom with contemporary sanitary ware.

      On the first floor, the main bedroom with eaves storage and adjacent staircase, benefits from built in wardrobes and access to the ground floor bathroom directly below. An interconnecting bedroom two, also benefits from built in wardrobes and leads to the generously sized first floor landing with further bedroom three. A pair of stairs lead up to the two vaulted attic rooms with integral storage and access to an additional attic room.

      Golford Place is approached via an open driveway with ample parking for several cars and access to the heritage style oak framed double carport with additional office space. The former brick built garage has been converted into a useful garden store.

      The property is surrounded by beautiful mature gardens and lawns, specimen trees, woodlands and fenced garden pond. Together with a substantial paved terrace area, ideal for entertaining. Adjoining the garden to the north west is a tennis court (in need of resurfacing) and paddock. To the east of the house lies a period barn with separate vehicular access, which, subject to planning permissions would make an excellent annexe or holiday let.
