Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Manor Farm is a charming small country estate set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the High Weald. With the present house dating from the 1930s occupying the site of much older properties, the house has external elevations typical of the period with tile hanging detailing, tall chimneys and leaded light windows. Internally many features remain including oak wall panelling, decorative oak ceiling beams and original fireplaces. Modern features include solar panelling and central vacuuming in the Main House and Oast . Reception Rooms are full of character and of good proportion with large windows, some bay, framing views of the gardens and allowing for maximum natural light penetration.

Situation

The house is situated amongst lovely countryside approximately one and a half miles from the hamlet of Brightling with its period houses and cottages and 12th century church. Three miles distant is the village of Roberstbridge which has a few local shops and facilities including a mainline train service to London (London Bridge from 1 hour 12 minutes) and access on to the A21, which in turn connects to the national motorway network at the M25 Junction 5. The historic town of Battle is approximately 6.8 miles away and has a larger selection of local stores, public houses, restaurants and a library.
Schools nearby include primaries at Netherfield and Robertsbridge, community colleges at Robertsbridge and Battle, Vinehall Preparatory School, St Ronans and Marlborough House at Hawkhurst.

Outside

Approached via a small, private lane, 400 yards from Brightling Road and with access to the parking area via a pair of double gates, the grounds are a spectacular feature of the property. Sweeping lawns are peppered with mature specimen trees, azaleas and rhododendrons. There are various terraces from which to take in the fine views of the surroundings including the swimming pool terrace which also has a hot tub. There is a tennis court and a croquet lawn, walled rose garden, a summer house and a marvellous Kitchen Garden area with greenhouses and storage sheds. The woodland is charming being suffused with bluebells and other wild flowers in the spring and there is a sliver birch glade with its dappled light filtering through the leaves. A waterfall and stream feature connects various smaller ponds culminating with a large pond stocked with Koi and other types of gold fish. To the far end is a boat house accessed via a quaint painted bridge.
