A fine country house dating back to the Edwardian period, Verno is a handsome family home just south of the East Sussex market town of Heathfield.

The current owners have carried out an extensive renovation and refurbishment programme resulting in a beautifully presented and well-laid out house perfect for family life. Tall sash windows and working and feature fireplaces feature in many of the rooms as examples of period interest.

Accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes a double aspect drawing room with a bay window, fireplace and French doors out to the loggia; sitting room also with fireplace and French doors and classic dining room opening to the kitchen/breakfast room. Upstairs are the master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite dressing room, and the family bathroom.

Outside is a timber-clad stable block with three loose boxes and the gardens are mainly laid to lawn, which slopes down to the woodland. Immediately adjacent to the rear of the house is a gravelled terrace, beyond which is a level area of grass, formerly a croquet lawn. The woodland lies along the western boundary and is made up of beech, oak and pine trees – it is a haven of wildlife including pheasant and deer.

Verno is situated on the outskirts of Horam near Heathfield in East Sussex. The village has a church and a number of village shops and Heathfield and also Uckfield nearby offer a wider range of services.
