Tenure: Freehold

Forest Place is a detached character house in an attractive setting on Ashdown Forest. The house has been extended in recent years and the spacious interior now provides excellent family accommodation. The entrance porch opens to a large dining hall with an inglenook with multi fuel stove and oak flooring which also extends through most of the ground floor. The drawing room is a well proportioned room with a limestone feature fireplace and French doors to the rear terrace. There are three further reception rooms being a family room with French doors to the terrace, a study and a delightful sitting room with wide windows the length of one wall, from here a spiral staircase leads to a double bedroom with a shower room which could form a self contained suite. The kitchen has been superbly refitted and equipped and has a door to the excellent conservatory/breakfast room. On the first floor there are four further bedrooms, an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom.


This is an idyllic setting known as Fisher's Gate, located in the famous Five Hundred Acre Wood, adjoining the Ashdown Forest and is approached by a long forest lane to its own gated entrance. Although in this totally rural setting, there is easy access to Crowborough about 1.75 miles for a good range of shopping facilities and amenities and is about 3.5 miles to the south of Groombridge for local shops, pubs and the well known Groombridge Place. Tunbridge Wells is about 7 miles to the north for more comprehensive shopping facilities and recreational amenities.


There are attractive gardens and grounds with two entrances, one to the front of the house with double gates and the main one to the side through automatic gates to a very wide parking area to the front of the double garage which has first floor storage. Adjoining is a substantial outbuilding. By the house there is a superb Indian sandstone terrace with low brick retaining walls and steps to sweeping areas of lawn leading to mature woodland areas. In all about 2.8 acres.

Additional Information

Train Services: Eridge & Crowborough stations (both about 4 miles) for a direct service to London Bridge in about 60/70 minutes or Tunbridge Wells for Charing Cross, London Bridge and Cannon Street about 50/55 minutes.
