Property
The house was built around the turn of the last century and was divided into 2 wings in 1952 with this wing being extended in 1970. The current vendors purchased the house in 2005 and refurbished and modernised it at that time. Accordingly the house is beautifully presented.

The front door opens into a magnificent galleried reception hall, which has wonderful ceiling height. All the principal rooms lead off the hall including the gracious drawing room, the study/dining room and a spacious kitchen/breakfast/family room. The kitchen has fitted wall and floor units with granite work surfaces, an island unit with a breakfast bar and French doors to the garden. It has a 4 door Aga, a double oven, dishwasher, 2 gas hobs and a built in fridge. Also on this level is a utility room, cloakroom and a guest bedroom with a well-appointed en suite shower room.

On the first floor is a spectacular landing with principal bedroom having a dressing room and a luxurious en suite bathroom. There are also 3 further bedroom and a family bathroom on this floor. On the second floor is bedroom 6 with a study area and an en suite shower room.

There is a gravel area to the side of the house, which gives access to the cellar.

The main garden, which is enclosed by trees and shrubs, lies to the south of the house and the elevations are clad with climbing plants including roses, wisteria and magnolia grandiflora. It has a flagstone terrace and a fishpond. The lawn leads away from the terrace and a path leads up the side of the garden flanked on one side by a shrub border. Within the lawn is a heated swimming pool, overlooked by a gazebo. At the end of the garden are some specimen trees, a further shrub border and a gate leading out onto the Ashdown Forest and golf course.
