    About this property

    • Raven Oak is a detached chalet-style property, believed to date from the 1970s. It sits in an enviable elevated position at the head of its 4.7 acres of land and has the benefit of far-reaching views across the valley towards Sheffield Park.

      Raven Oak is currently arranged over two storeys, with part tile-hung elevations under a tiled roof. It offers bright and spacious accommodation comprising entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, principal bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

      The full extent of the accommodation can be viewed on the accompanying floorplans, with points of note including wood flooring to much of the ground floor, a 19' sitting room with a woodboring stove and a bay window framing the spectacular views, French doors from the sitting room and the study to the terrace, and fitted wardrobes to each bedroom.

      The property offers excellent potential for updating and reconfiguring; permission has previously been granted for the construction of a detached residential annex containing double open garage at ground floor level and accommodation ancillary to the house at ground and first floor level. The lapsed plans can be viewed on Wealden DC planning portal, ref WD/2019/0779/F.

      Raven Oak is approached from Mill Lane via a driveway which leads up, opening out to provide ample parking ahead of the house and its attached car port. A paved terrace wraps the house to the north and west, providing space for table and chairs, creating a wonderful spot to enjoy the spectacular views the property offers. The gardens slope gently away to the south and west of the house and are mainly laid to lawn. A gate opens to the paddock, which has the benefit of its own access via a five-bar gate on the western boundary, opening to the hardstanding track from Mill Lane over which Raven Oak enjoys right of way.

      In all, about 4.7 acres.

      Agent's Note
      The paddock is let on a grazing licence with a two month notice period.
