    About this property

    • Rye Farm is a picturesque, Grade II Listed farmhouse with 17th century origins. The house, which surprisingly for a property of this period, offers a superb balance of reception space and accommodation. It is a property that must be seen to be fully appreciated. One of the most splendid features of the property is the substantial party barn, which is attached to the house and has a kitchen and mezzanine with bedroom/sitting area, thereby providing the perfect venue for parties and events.

      The party barn and The Old Barn, which is a separate 3 bedroom building opposite the house, form a courtyard around the sheltered outdoor swimming pool, which is encircled by a generous patio. The Old Barn provides excellent additional/ancillary accommodation either for guests, staff or relatives.

      To the south of the courtyard there are several additional barns (formerly agricultural), cattle sheds, garaging and stores. This area is accessed via a spur off the main drive.

      The setting of Rye Farm is truly magical. A private drive leads up to the house, with views to the right over the land owned by the property. The house overlooks the lovely gardens and beyond to the pasture, which leads down to a stream, a tributary of the River Wey.
