The property sits in an elevated position with far-reaching views over the countryside, and there is also a garage and workshop complex outside. The grounds amount to around eight and a half acres and are a mixture of formal garden with recently re-grassed lawn, stone and wooden rose arbours interspersed with pathways and raised flowerbeds. There are several terraced areas, one of which marks the start of a carpet of bluebells which leads all the way back to the western side of the house. The remaining grounds include pretty areas of woodland that attract both a variety of birds including kestrels, woodpeckers and owls as well as roe and fallow deer.

A recently reclaimed pond with a central island holds a variety of fish and there is also evidence of an old stone quarry from where the stone was most likely found to build the 1900s extension; its sloping banks are now a haven for snowdrops and daffodils.

The property is approximately midway between Uckfield and Heathfield (both under five miles distant). Tunbridge Wells with its extensive shopping and entertainment facilities is around 14 miles to the north east.

The guide price is £1,550,000. For further information please contact Hamptons International on 01892 516611 or visit www.hamptons.co.uk.
