    • Snaylham House is a handsome, predominantly Georgian country house with later additions, understood to date originally from the early 1800s, it sits amidst delightful gardens with wonderful countryside views and benefits from a flexible one bedroom cottage, perfect for guests or multi-generational living.

      This unlisted property enjoys an elevated position, set midway along a shared private lane and within a designated High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just over a mile away lies the village of Icklesham, whilst 6.3 miles to the north east lies the historic and hugely popular medieval town of Rye, with train station, independent shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants.

      The very well presented accommodation of excellent proportions, amounts to over 4,400 sq ft including the wine cellar. Lovely features throughout the house include high ceilings, painted panelled internal doors, picture rails, deep skirtings, oak flooring to the kitchen/breakfast room and family room/conservatory, period fireplaces to many rooms and glorious views which can be enjoyed from most rooms.

      The elegant reception hall with recessed display niches and wide staircase to the first floor, leads to three principal reception rooms; the sitting room/study with woodburning stove and deep bay window, the formal dining room and the wonderful 25ft drawing room with open fireplace and French doors opening to the southerly facing terrace. The attractive family room with David Salisbury conservatory, is located to the western portion of house and has underfloor heating.

      The kitchen/breakfast room was refitted in 2021 by Portrait Kitchens of Rye with a range of hand painted cupboards and walnut drawers, all complemented by quartz stone worksurfaces. Appliances comprise an electric ER7 AGA, integral dishwasher, freestanding fridge/freezer and a Quooker boiling water tap. French doors open from the breakfast area to the terrace. Off the kitchen is the utility/boot room with a stable door and a WC.

      A wide staircase leads to the generous first floor landing where there are six attractive bedrooms which are served by three bath/shower rooms, two being en suite. All the bedrooms enjoy views over the gardens or adjoining farmland beyond and the majority benefit from fitted cupboards, with the main bedroom having its own dressing room and stylishly finished bathroom. A part boarded loft can be accessed from the landing via a retractable ladder.

      Snaylham House is approached via a shared private lane. Gates open to the gravel drive to the front of the house where there is ample parking and turning. The beautiful gardens extend to about 1.12 acres and provide a lovely setting for the property, with a wide terrace stretching away to the rear, separate lawned areas with mature trees, established hedging, an array of seasonal shrubs and varieties of rose.
