Why you’ll like it:

On a characterful no through lane close to a foot and bridle path to the Downs, this beautiful flint barn has been sensitively transformed into a unique luxury home ideal for a country move or lock up and leave as you are not isolated and close to local amenities and transport links.

With French doors at each end and a tall central window, the outside of this barn is very appealing and lights are in place to guide you safely home. Entering by the far doors, you step into a unique living space full of sunshine, where the use of natural materials complements the environment and the English oak beams soar majestically overhead whilst the white ceiling houses sky lights as well as a discreet, and very chic sound system. Three levels of lighting and wood shutters combine to allow you to choose the mood and the Pioneer wood burner adds intimacy as well as warmth to the living space which is partly beneath a cantilevered ceiling so it feels quite cosy too. At the other end of the room, a hand made oak kitchen has polished concrete surfaces in an individual tawny tone as it has been especially mixed with sands and glass to blend with the glittering Indian sandstone beneath your feet, and the working area is tucked behind a sociable breakfast bar where friends can chat as you cook on the gas hob integrated into it. Behind you, the ovens are thoughtfully at eye level and there is plumbing for a dishwasher- although your eye is drawn to windows in the end wall framing views across neighbouring houses and gardens to the Downs.

An ingenious sliding staircase takes you up to a peaceful office with built in desks and wonderful views and at the other end of the barn, the peaceful guest bedroom on the ground floor is next to a glamorous wet room with a dual headed shower and atmospheric lighting. A contemporary glass and steel staircase leads past an exposed flint and brick wall up to the master bedroom, completely private within the building, with ample storage and a luxurious en suite large enough for a  free standing bath and separate shower. The stable door opens onto a sun terrace which is laden with fruiting vines and has steps to the garden patio, which can also be reached from the side, with plenty of room for al fresco dining and where raised beds are full of scented lavender and strawberries. 

Bear in mind:

The natural materials and energy efficient windows of this home all interact together to maximise the efficiency of the underfloor and water heating system run by an air source heat pump.

Owner’s secret:

“This is a special place to live in with the National Park and farm shop on the doorstep but close enough to the A23 to be quickly re-connected with the real world”

Pyecombe is a friendly village surrounded by golf courses as well as the Downs.

The coastal City of Brighton and Hove is within a 20 minute drive and for those needing to venture further afield, the railway stations at Hassocks, Haywards Heath and Brighton all with a fast and regular service to Gatwick and London are within easy reach.
