Outstanding oast house in East Sussex for sale

Understood to date from 1843, The Oast House sits in a superb elevated position at the end of a long lane. The house was converted with great style and the house presents mellow sandstone, brick and stained weatherboard elevations under a pitched clay-tile roof.

The house has flexible, light accommodation; features of note include a well-proportioned sitting room with two sets of sliding doors out to the garden, and a wood-burning stove in the snug. The very well-appointed roundel kitchen is the focus of the house, and other features include generous ceiling heights throughout, exposed sandstone walls, brick and wood floors and a spacious vaulted landing with a wealth of exposed timbers.

Upstairs are the principal bedroom suite and three further double bedrooms, plus a family bathroom.

Outside, to the south and west, is a terrace with a pretty ornamental pond beyond. The garden is principally laid to lawn with various well-stocked beds and a number of specimen trees.

The grounds come to just over 13 acres.
