Outside the park-like grounds surrounding the house are mostly gently-rolling grass banks dotted with trees. A paved terrace sits to the rear of the property and another by the swimming pool; the tennis court sits to the north east and a children’s play area and a lake lie beyond the outbuildings. There is also an apple orchard, while the remaining land is divided into two paddocks and there are two streams running throughout the property and pretty woodland walks along these. The grounds come to over 32 acres.

The house is located off a country lane that runs between Bodle Street Green and Herstmonceux in East Sussex, around 20 miles south of Tunbridge Wells.

The guide price is £3.5m. For further information please contact Savills on 01892 507 000 or visit the house on their website.
