A delightful period property comprising a detached Sussex style farmhouse combining glorious countryside views within an easy walk of village amenities. It has been the subject of a comprehensive renovation and extension programme over the last eleven years to form a charming country home surrounded by its own grounds. The house has been sympathetically altered and refurbished to a high standard and now has a character interior, with the original beams, exposed timbers and inglenook, together with modern facilities including new wiring, windows, damp proofing, cavity wall insulation, plumbing underfloor heating and modern condensing gas boiler. The current occupants extended the property in 2020 adding a new south west wing to increase the living space with the option of providing a self contained annexe with sitting room and kitchenette, above which is a bedroom and en suite shower room. This room is very light with bi fold doors to the terrace and full height windows, together with a fitted kitchen area and flagstone flooring. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a good sized solid oak kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceiling, fitted worktops, cupboards and drawers, butlers sink and a dining area with patio doors to the garden. There is a beamed sitting room with the original front door entrance, and an inglenook fireplace with woodburner. Adjacent is a study with exposed beams and oak panelling. The hall has stone flooring and off this is a wet room/cloakroom. The first floor has three double bedrooms with the main bedroom having fitted oak panelled wardrobe cupboards and a brick fireplace whilst the back bedroom has a wonderful rural outlook. The bathroom has been re-fitted as a wet room with a bath having mixer /shower attachment, separate walk in power shower, hand basin, W.C. suite and a chromium plated heated towel rail. The gardens surround the house being laid to lawn and landscaped with a partially raised 120m2 sandstone patio to make the most of the views beyond. There is a delightful covered pergola featuring a pizza oven, BBQ and seating area which benefits from the afternoon sun and spectacular evening sunsets. Next to the pergola is a custom built rubber surfaced area currently used as a children’s playground. The gardens also contains an apple tree, mature oak, greenhouse and timber shed. There is a detached oak framed garage, adjacent lean to log store and forecourt parking. The entire grounds extend to five acres and include a U-shaped wooden stable yard with 5 stables, tack room and feed store, all under a cedar shingle roof. There is electricity and water to the yard and all paddocks have automatic water troughs. The paddock nearest the stable yard also benefits from hardstanding for the winter months. Adjacent to the stable yard there is a large store and open barn. In addition there are 2 large modern containers which currently house a recently fitted out office with fibre broadband connection and a separate store area. The other container is currently used for storing hay and bedding. The house is situated in a private lane/bridleway with exceptional off-road hacking all the way to the Ashdown Forest. There is an abundance of wildlife with deer, buzzards, owls and foxes regularly seen from the property. An additional 8.5 acres of land (including a small wooded copse of ½ an acre) could be available by separate negotiation.
