About this property

  • Rock Cottage is set in a wonderful rural position with a pleasant outlook across its own gardens and grounds.

    The property has clearly been a happy family house, and offers enormous potential for extension and renovation, or a complete rebuild. Planning permission was granted in 2007 for a “proposed replacement house and garage and partial demolition of existing house”. The Annexe was included in these plans and has been completed, ensuring the permission has been granted in perpetuity, and amended plans are being submitted for a striking five bedroom WeberHaus, arranged over three floors and extending to over 7,500 sq ft.

    The floorplans give an excellent overview of the precise layout and extent of the existing accommodation, please refer to them for a comprehensive room list.

    Planning Notes
    Planning was granted in 2007 for a “proposed replacement house and garage and partial demolition of existing house”, plans can be viewed on Wealden DC planning portal ref WD/2007/3692. This planning included the Annexe which has been built.
    Permission for amended plans is being applied for.
    Plans for the granted application and proposed amendments are available from the Agent on request.

    Rock Cottage is complemented by a detached timber framed annexe with a ground floor workshop and first floor open plan apartment.

    Within the grounds are two large timber sheds/machinery stores with power connected, offering secure storage, workspace and wood store.

    The outdoor swimming pool, served by a detached open kitchen and separate summer house, lies to the east of house; beyond is a tennis court and an extensive kitchen garden with enclosed raised beds and greenhouse. 8 person hot tub

    The grounds extend to 12 acres in all, with the gardens mainly laid to meadow-style lawn; there is a substantial woodland.
