    About this property

    • Comprising a delightful and beautifully-presented character house, together with extensive secondary accommodation, Frog Hole Farm offers adaptable family accommodation in an exceptional rural setting.

      Originally forming two farm workers' cottages dating back to the 1800s, the property has been extended and improved to maximise the lovely south-facing aspect, with an outlook to all sides over the garden, fields and countryside beyond.

      There is a good choice of schools in the area, including Mayfield School for Girls and, for commuters, Buxted (4.4 miles) offers a regular service to London Victoria from 1hr 19 mins, or Crowborough (at Jarvis Brook 5.1 miles) to London Bridge in just over an hour.

      This property has a stylish finish with contemporary fixtures and fittings, including bespoke oak joinery, marble flooring and well-appointed bath/shower rooms. There are two characterful reception rooms comprising a sitting room with a wide inglenook fireplace fitted with a canopied wood burning stove and a terracotta tiled hearth and a dining room and a garden room which open out to the terrace on the east side.

      The light and spacious farmhouse-style kitchen/family room is complete with an Aga and double doors out to the terrace.

      The dual-aspect master bedroom opens enjoys a view to the south and includes an en suite bathroom with a large Jacuzzi spa bath. There are four further bedrooms, two on the north side with a view towards Mayfield and one with an en suite shower room. A family bathroom completes the accommodation in the house.

      The Lodge House:
      Built in 2015 and located away from the main house, the substantial and attractive oak-clad Lodge House enjoys a high degree of privacy and provides exceptional secondary accommodation comprising three bedrooms, a bathroom, a dining room and a large kitchen/living room opening out through bi-fold doors to a decked terrace.

      Studio/Games Room:
      Alongside the Lodge is a detached oak-clad triple garage block with a bespoke oak staircase up to a spacious first floor studio/games room with roof skylights.

      The Grounds:
      Of particular note is the lovely setting, with an area of park-like garden accessed via a wide Indian sandstone terrace which wraps around the house and provides enviable space for outdoor entertaining.

      Beyond the garden is an orchard and a large area of natural meadow land, with a bank of high hedging and mature trees to the boundaries, providing a high level of privacy to all sides.

      Several useful outbuildings include four 12'6” x 10'2” timber stables, a machinery store, wood store and a poly-tunnel.

      The approach to Frog Hole Farm is via a long tree-lined driveway through impressive wrought-iron gates from the lane, with an area of parking close to The Lodge and leading up at the end to the front of the house.
