An individual home, dating back to the Victorian period with a cleverly amalgamated 18th Century chapel forming the unique North "wing". The property is beautifully presented, having been carefully improved with contemporary fixtures and fittings which complement the many distinctive character features, and is ideally placed for the open spaces of the Golf Club and the centre of Crowborough, with its good range of amenities.

For commuters, the mainline station at Jarvis Brook is about 2.3 miles from the property and there is a good choice of schools in the vicinity. Further points of note include:
- high ceilings and large windows, including some sash, enchancing the natural light and framing a lovely outlook to the rear over the garden and view beyond;
- part panelled reception hall with balustrade staircase;
- drawing room to the front with a big bay window, pretty fireplace with tiled slips, wood surround and mantel and built-in bookshelves to either side;
- sitting room with a fireplace with a carved wood surround and mantel;
- delightful light-filled garden room with wide sliding doors opening to the garden terrace and a stunning mature grape vine adorning the ceiling. The grape vine theme is continued in the bespoke carved architraves of the door opening through to the older part of the house;
- stylish kitchen/breakfast room with a view to the garden and fitted with painted wood country units with granite work tops, Belfast sink and a two oven gas-fired Aga. Space for a dishwasher and a separate utility room with quarry-tiled floor, space for further white goods and a boot room off giving access to the garden;
- the former chapel section is accessed from the garden room, comprising a characterful study on the ground floor with gothic arched glazed doors opening out to the garden, pine joinery and a "private" balustrade staircase up to the second floor master bedroom suite above. This striking room enjoys far- reaching view through arched windows to the East and is fitted with a bank of bespoke wardrobes of gothic design to the back wall, with a discreet door opening through to an en suite bathroom;
- the remaining three bedrooms, dressing room/bedroom 5 and a well-appointed family bathroom are accessed via the main staircase, although there is a link through one bedroom into the master suite, allowing for flexible use;

The pretty established garden is well-stocked with perennials and mature shrubs and trees and stretches down via steps from the rear, to two level terraces with areas of lawn.
