Broadbury House is a most impressive 1920s Connors Brothers property, built in the 'Arts and Crafts' style and sympathetically restored to a high standard by the current owners to create a spacious well-appointed family home.

The property enjoys the generous proportions typical of the period with high ceilings and many inherent character features, including oak wall panelling, architraves, flooring and timbers in the principal rooms, much reclaimed by the builders from the ship building yards and featuring delightful naval-inspired carvings.

Tucked-away in an elevated position at the top of a long driveway approach, Broadbury House is located within a small enclave of detached houses, under a mile from Crowborough and well-positioned for the mainline stations at Eridge or Jarvis Brook offering commuters a regular service to London Bridge from about an hour. Further points of note include:
- contemporary fixtures and fittings including a bespoke craftsman-built kitchen, traditional-style leaded-light double glazed windows, cast iron radiators and well-appointed sanitary-ware;
- sandstone steps leading up to a pretty oak front door with wrought-iron fittings and opening into an inner porch with quarry tiled floor and leaded light porthole window;
- drawing room with oak flooring, red brick fireplace with decoratively-carved oak panel featuring a sailing ship, oak mantel and deep square bay window;
- sitting room with oak panelled walls, a wide open fireplace with carved stone surround and a flagstone hearth and delightful oak frieze over featuring marine-inspired carvings;
- dining room with red brick fireplace with cupboards to the side and oak flooring;
- hallway with reclaimed stripped oak flooring providing space for a study area with shelving to one wall;
- impressive kitchen/breakfast room with Welsh slate flooring, painted wood kitchen units with oak work tops over, space for a range-style cooker and American-style fridge/freezer and a separate utility room fitted to match the kitchen with stable door to the rear;
- master bedroom suite enjoying a view over the garden to the West towards the Ashdown Forest and to the South with built-in cupboards, decorative fireplace with red gloss tiled slips, a fully-fitted dressing room and a well-appointed bath/shower room;
- four further double bedrooms (one en suite) enjoying an outlook over the garden, and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

The landscaped gardens are a particularly noteworthy feature, extending to about 0.82 acres and surrounding the property to all sides with several distinct areas for enjoying the sun or shade and many mature trees and shrubs:
- gravel driveway approach from Melfort Road up to a five bar gate opening into a parking and turning area in front of a substantial detached brick garage;
- level areas of lawn to the three sides with well-stocked herbaceous and shrub borders providing year-round colour and interest;
- a backdrop of mature trees positioned on an interesting block of sandstone on the North and East side;
- raised vegetable beds and young fruit trees on the East side, including apple, conference pear and crab apple with a fruit hedge to the boundary.
