    About this property

    • Stone Cross Farmhouse is a fine, character, Grade II Listed timber framed family house thought to date from around the mid-15th century, originally being a Wealden Hall House. It was extended in the 17th century and later altered in the 19th and 20th centuries to form the house that exists today. The attractive facades feature ground floor Flemish-bond brickwork, and half tile hung elevations under a peg tiled roof.

      The property offers an abundance of period character with impressive aged beams including part of an original Crown Post, visible in the top floor bedroom. There are three open fireplaces and a log burner in the study/family room. The key reception rooms are gentrified in style with bay windows to the front and parquet flooring in the reception hall/sitting room. The well proportioned country-style kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of modern units and an Aga.

      The bedrooms are generally all good sizes and the master incorporates a wall of bespoke fitted wardrobes, with a separate dressing room and an en-suite bathroom.

      The current owners have been the custodians of this special family home for over forty years. The property is well-presented, but offers scope for updating and a separate detached brick and stone barn to the side provides further potential for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary consents.

      Outside - Stone Cross Farmhouse is set within delightful established gardens of about 1.6 acres which surround the house, with mature trees, colourful shrubberies and a swimming pool. A well maintained all weather tennis court is positioned behind high clipped hedging adjoining fields on the eastern side. The property is accessed via a side entrance, with a garage and parking area, and there is a secondary driveway to the rear.
