About this property

  • Description

    Pheasantry Farm is a well located and extremely pretty residential farm in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    The farmhouse is nicely presented well-proportioned family accommodation. There are two holiday let cottages providing the potential for significant rental income. The farm buildings would lend themselves to equestrian use and a biomass boiler adds to the running efficiency and environmental credentials of the holding. Having lovely views, the farm is situated in a rural yet convenient position, with land extending to a little over 100 acres.

    The sale of Pheasantry Farm presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a delightful residential farm in a location where such opportunities are rare.

    Pheasantry Farmhouse

    Pheasantry Farm is accessed through a gated driveway way off Newick Lane. The drive splits giving access to the farmhouse via an electric gate and separate access to the holiday cottages.

    There is a gravelled parking area to the front of the farmhouse and also a detached double garage.
    Upon entry to the house through the front porch you are greeted into a bright open-plan family room and dining room beyond, which then opens into the fitted kitchen and a garden room beyond looking towards a lake with an ornamental fountain. The sitting room leads off the family room and through to the conservatory. There is also a utility room which has a shower room and a WC.

    The staircase rises from the family room to the first floor landing. There are five good sized double bedrooms all with en-suite facilities. The principal bedroom has wonderful views over the farm and the valley towards Mayfield.

    Pheasantry Farmhouse is heated by a biomass wood chip boiler, that also heats the two holiday cottages, and wood burning stoves which give the house a wonderfully cosy atmosphere.

    Holiday Cottages

    Pheasantry Farm enjoys the benefit of having two fully furnished two bedroom holiday lets that lie to the south west of the farmhouse well screened by an established conifer hedgerow. They are in excellent condition and could provide a new owner significant additional income.

    Pheasantry Farm Buildings

    Pheasantry Farm has the benefit of numerous farm buildings. The main farm building extends to some 5,316 sq ft and is currently used for farm machinery storage but could house livestock or horses if required. There is also a useful two storey farm workshop, one end of which houses the biomass boiler.

    Land

    Pheasantry Farm extends to just over 100 acres of beautiful rolling Wealden countryside. The pasture equates to just over 55 acres and is currently being farmed under a grazing licence to a local farmer. It is well fenced and has water laid on to all fields. There are several lakes and ponds across the farm that have previously been let to a local fishing syndicate. The woodland is mainly broadleaved ancient woodland which amounts to just under 40 acres. Of particular note in the woodland is a very attractive stream that forms the western boundary of the farm.
