Full description

The Old Orchard is a select development of eight houses and eight apartments, close to the centre of the pretty Sussex village of Burwash. This final development of four townhouses, offers stylish and contemporary accommodation set over three floors, each with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Outside you will find garaging, parking and a courtyard garden.

From the moment the sun rises across the beautiful countryside to the last moments of evening light, the owners of the new homes at The Old Orchard will delight in their surroundings.
The stunning properties at the attractive development have been created to make the most of their incredible location, according to Eos Group Managing Director, Andrew Muncey..
This site has the most fantastic views over the Sussex countryside towards Wadhurst and Stonegate, he explained.
We wanted to preserve those views and, in the design of these high quality homes, ensure as many rooms as possible captured the amazing outlook.


The exclusive, gated development first began back in 2007 with the purchase of The Old Orchard, a bungalow with grounds of 1.5 acres. Four architect designed houses and eight apartments were created at the scenic location.

'Adjacent to this original house was a block of small apartments known as Dawes House', Andrew explained. 'It was originally a golf clubhouse which served a small 9 hole course in the valley which was subsequently purchased by local benefactors and converted into small affordable flats for residents from the area'.

'Unfortunately, the house had fallen into disrepair and we took the opportunity of integrating the site into The Old Orchard as the final piece of the jigsaw. The completed development now has an attractive courtyard feel'.


The high calibre homes have been given bright, contemporary interiors and have been created for easy living.
The flexibility of the design means the new owners will be able to choose how they use the spaces, he explained. You could have a bedroom on the first or second floor - or you could create a superb drawing room with stunning views.
In theory, the houses have four bedrooms but any of these could easily become a study, drawing room or utility room. They are very versatile.


Each house has three bathrooms - two of which are en-suite - and a cloakroom. These feature Roca sanitary ware and Hansgrohe taps and showers.
The kitchen breakfast rooms are contemporary in style, with granite work surfaces, full-fitted high quality appliances, and a breakfast bar, where the owners will be able to enjoy casual meals and cups of coffee over the Sunday papers.
The kitchen has porcelain tiles and - as everywhere in the house - has under-floor heating. Coming downstairs on a winter's morning in bare feet will be wonderful! he said.


With French windows out on to private gardens, the houses at The Old Orchard will make tremendous homes all year round, he suggested.
I also see these as 'lock-up and leave' properties. They would be ideal for anyone downsizing or perhaps spending an increasing amount of time abroad, he said.
They are comfortable, stylish and very easy to maintain - superb homes in an outstanding location.


Both bedrooms on the first floor have fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom enjoys full length windows with a Juliette balcony, a great place to appreciate glorious countryside views. There is also an en-suite to the master bedroom and a bathroom on this floor, all fitted with white suites and fully tiled in cool, honey coloured ceramic tiles.


Although you are sure to be impressed by the first two floors, it is when you reach the third floor that the real wow factor kicks in. Here there are two further bedrooms which could be used as a bedroom and a living room, with a 'Jack and Jill' shower/bathroom between. The bedroom/living area boasts stunning full length 'chapel style' windows, flooding light into the room and providing panoramic views over the ever changing countryside.

The properties at The Old Orchard sit in beautifully kept, landscaped grounds, and enjoy breathtaking, rural views. In a courtyard setting, the whole gated development has been designed to be appealing to the eye. Each house also benefits its own private courtyard garden. French windows open up on to areas that may be used for outside dining and entertaining.
Two of the houses have conservatories, which lead out on to the terraced area, he said. All of the gardens are real suntraps.
There is also a garage en-bloc and an allocated parking space.

The picturesque, tree lined village of Burwash has a variety of shops, inns and an ancient parish church, whilst the bustling market town of Heathfield (about 6 miles west) offers a wider range of shopping facilities. There are a number of National Trust properties in the area, including Bodiam, Scotney and Sissinghurst Castles and 15th century Batemans - family home of Rudyard Kipling - is located in the village itself.

Leisure facilities in the area include sailing on the coast at Eastbourne and Brighton and in-land water sports and fishing at Bewl Water Reservoir, as well as great cycling, walking and riding. There is a good Adventure Playground at Bedgebury National Pinetum. Local Golf Courses can be found at Lamberhurst and The East Sussex National Golf Resort and Spa in Uckfield.

There are also many highly regarded state and private schools in the area including Bricklehurst Manor, Burwash and Etchingham Primary schools, as well as grammar Schools in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge.
