Situated on the rural edge of Rotherfield village, this exceptionally well proportioned period property is set within pretty mature grounds, with a lovely outlook from the majority of rooms over gardens and fields beyond.

The adaptable family space is arranged over three floors, enhanced by typical period features, including generous high ceilings, sash windows and fireplaces, and offering potential to create useful self-contained annexe space, if required.

The entrance lobby features an impressive multi-coloured decorative window to the front and opens into a family room, with a wood burning stove. A light and spacious country-style kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with an Aga, lies in the heart of the house, together with a traditional cool walk-in larder, and further practical domestic space.

Two principal reception rooms on the ground floor comprise an elegant formal dining room with a pretty fireplace and arched windows within a big bay, from which a lovely view of the garden can be enjoyed, and a dual-aspect sitting room, with a marble fireplace.

Six individual bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a study/box room are arranged over the first floor, with far reaching views to the front over farmland, and additional character space above in two second floor attic rooms.
