    About this property

    • Understood to date from the 16th century, Cromwell Barn is a superb example of a detached period barn conversion, characterised in the Sussex vernacular of brick and stone, part tile hung elevations beneath a tiled roof. Despite its age and beautiful period style, Cromwell Barn benefits from remaining unlisted, offering a comfortable, deceptively spacious and beautifully presented home of over 2,300 square feet (excluding the second floor mezzanines), catering to modern standards of comfort. Points of note include double glazed casement windows in keeping with the style of the property, a wealth of original oak timbers, good ceiling heights throughout the majority of the house, a stylish, recently re-fitted kitchen and classic-style white bathroom suites.

      The accompanying floorplans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the accommodation. There are two formal reception rooms: the entrance porch opens to a spacious, part-galleried dining hall with stripped wood floor and a door opening to the garden; the sitting room is of particular note: a generous triple-aspect room with French doors opening to the garden, handsome oak posts and beams, a large brick inglenook set with a woodburning stove, and a walk-in wine store.

      The superbly appointed kitchen was re-fitted in 2023 with a range of modern shaker-style units and display cupboards, complemented by quartz worktops, a woodblock-topped island, and integrated appliances including a Rangemaster oven; there is space for a breakfast table or seating area; together with an adjoining study or snug and a well-fitted utility/boot room with further range of units and space for laundry appliances. A shower room lying off the dining hall completes the ground floor.

      Stairs rise to an impressive galleried landing on the first floor, with hatch and ladder access to a further minstrels' gallery over. There are five well-proportioned and attractively presented bedrooms, three with en suite shower rooms, and the remaining two served by a family bathroom with suite including a roll-top bath and a separate Insignia jet shower. Bedrooms two and three have the additional benefit of steps rising to split-level mezzanines, which could be used for storage or as private study areas.

      Cromwell Barn is accessed from Felcourt Road via electronically-operated timber gates, which open to a gravel driveway and parking area ahead of the detached, oak-framed double garage. The garage has power connected, twin electrically-operated roller doors and an internal staircase rising to a boarded and insulated storage room over.

      A brick pathway winds through the well-stocked and mature front garden to the house, the front garden laid to lawn with mature pine trees and woodland shrubs, a newt pond and a timber shed. There is gated access to the side of the house to the rear garden, which is arranged in two sections: a gravel terrace and small paved seating area adjoins the rear of the property, leading out on to an expanse of level lawn extending away from the house to a raised, decked terrace in one corner.

      Beyond here, a timber partition screens a large gravel terrace with greenhouse and a sunken fish pond, and a substantial and versatile timber summerhouse, currently used as a games room and gym, with power connected, fitted units and a wine fridge, and electric heating. To the rear of the summerhouse is an area for composting and garden waste, and access to an adjoining store.

      In all, about 0.37 acres.
