Planning permission:
Permission is in place with design by Robert Shreeve Associates Ltd, to enhance the living space by extending the kitchen/breakfast and sitting room out on the South side to create a generously proportioned open plan kitchen/dining room.

Gardens and Grounds:
Of particular note are the attractive mature grounds, which wrap around the house and provide a superb setting against the far-reaching views over farmland and hills behind and Ticehurst village to the East.

A large area of lawn sweeps down from a broad paved terrace on the South side, to a tennis court and, to the West, a flight of steps leads down to an enclosed swimming pool, positioned to make the most of the summer sun and the view.

Mature mixed hedging to the boundaries provides both privacy and shelter, and a coppice of mature trees, including beech, oak, silver birch and hornbeam, extends along the driveway on the North side to the road, creating an attractive wooded approach.

The property is approached down a long gravel driveway from the road, leading to a substantial parking and turning space in front of a two-bay timber car port with store room.

Oil-fired central heating, mains water and electricity. Private drainage.
