About this property

  • This substantial country house offers an abundance of character throughout, with the central portion believed to be dating back to the 15th century.

    On the ground floor, the key entertaining rooms are particularly impressive, with the main entrance opening straight into an impressive double height reception room, with oak beams, stained glass window and a fine turn staircase to the galleried landing. A drinks bar is positioned to one end of the hall, and an imposing inglenook fireplace to the other. Leading off from here, there are three impressive formal regency-style reception rooms, including good ceiling heights with mouldings, double aspects, bow windows and period-style fireplaces (working fire in the reception hall).

    The first floor sees a continuation of the rational, modern layout below, with a particularly impressive Principal bedroom suite which enjoys a wonderful outlook.

    Externally there is a shingled private drive with parking for several cars, flanked by grass and a rhododendron bank, with tall, mature trees. A garage building is positioned to the right of the drive. To the rear are beautiful landscaped formal gardens, composed primarily of two large lawns, one on a lower level from the house, accessed via stone steps and the other with a raised terrace from the house. Mature trees, conifers, hedging and rhododendrons boarder the gardens providing fine views, including an outlook across to the church spire at Rotherfield.

    Please note, photographs were taken more than a year ago.
