Nestling amidst a splendid ‘Plantsman's-style garden and enjoying far reaching views towards Battle and beyond, this well presented home, which has been in the same family for over 30 years, retains many period features and provides expansive and extremely adaptable accommodation exceeding 5,400 sq ft, arranged over four floors.

    • Elegant reception rooms comprise a drawing room which is open to the sitting room, a formal dining room and, of particular note, a wonderful light and airy 35ft studio/music room with French doors opening to a south-westerly facing terrace, situated to the front of the house.

    • A wide staircase leads to the first floor landing where five beautiful bedrooms are served by two bathrooms and all enjoy views over the gardens. The majority of bedrooms benefit from fitted or built in wardrobe cupboards. On the second floor there two further sizable bedrooms and access to eaves storage.

    Park House is approached initially over a shared private lane, a spur leads off to a private drive flanked by pine trees and mature shrubs and culminating in a generous area of parking to the front of the house. The drive continues around to the garaging and the workshop.
    • The beautiful gardens and grounds, which amount to about 2.3 acres, are an outstanding feature of the property. A wide brick paved terrace lies to the north east affording views over the gardens with steps leading down to a further terrace and the gently sloping lawns, with banks of rhododendrons and azaleas, an ornamental pond, borders planted with an array of perennials and mature trees including oak, magnolia, cherry and a superb willow tree. A pathway leads around to the ornamental kitchen garden with a mulberry tree, a number of raised beds and a greenhouse.
    • Partially screened by a brick wall with trelliswork festooned with rambling roses is the heated outdoor swimming pool.
