Tenure: Freehold

Understood to date from 17th century, with Georgian and Victorian additions, The Old Vicarage has attractive red brick elevations with grey headers and is part tile hung. Internally the house provides well-proportioned living accommodation of over 4,600 sq ft, arranged over three floors. There is excellent natural light and numerous period features throughout, including many traditional fireplaces, some inset with wood burning stoves, some exposed timbers, high ceilings, panelled doors and wood flooring.

Features of note include a good size kitchen/ breakfast room which has a tile floor, a generous range of cream fronted units with hard wood work surfaces, a Stanley range and doors to a conservatory. From the conservatory double doors lead to the garden and a south facing paved sitting area. The magnificent drawing room of grand proportions has a large south facing bay window and double half glazed doors opening onto the garden. The music room is situated to the far end of the drawing room. The sitting room also has a bay window and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The dining room, situated in the older part of the house, has some exposed timbers and an open fireplace. The property benefits from two sets of stairs to the upper storeys where the spacious bedrooms and well-appointed bathrooms are located over two floors.

The Old Vicarage is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within a 1,000 acre private estate. The property is surrounded by picturesque and unspoilt countryside and lies to the north side of the village of Mountfield, with its 12th century Parish Church of All Saints and village hall. The attractive village of Robertsbridge, about 3 miles to the north, provides a range of amenities for everyday needs.

Mainline stations can be found at either Robertsbridge or Battle with regular services to London (London Cannon Street and London Charing Cross in about 1 hour 20 minutes).

The thriving and historic town of Battle which lies about 3.5 miles to the south, has a good range of individual shops, a supermarket and there are a number of popular cafes, restaurants and public houses. The coastal town of Hastings is approximately 10 miles and the regional centre of Tunbridge Wells with its comprehensive range of shops is about 19 miles to the north. The A21 is within easy reach and provides access to the M25, and thus the national motorway network.

There is an excellent selection of both state and private schools in the area including Claverham Community College, Vinehall, Claremont, Battle Abbey and Marlborough House.

The Old Vicarage is approached from the village lane via a long shared tree lined driveway, and then via its own private driveway, flanked by rhododendrons, which leads to an extensive gravel parking area to the front of the house. A spur from the driveway leads to the old coach house situated to the north side of the property. The gardens, which provide an idyllic setting for the property, have been attractively landscaped over the years, and are laid principally to lawn, with various well stocked borders and a number of mature trees including mulberry, medlar, oak, beech and flowering cherries. Adjacent to the rear of the house is a wide paved terrace from which steps lead down to a formal garden with gravel paths and brick edged beds which are generously
planted. Clipped laurel hedging borders a path, which leads to the large productive kitchen garden, with raised beds containing an established asparagus bed and a wide variety of soft fruits. The chicken run is located to the far end of the rear garden and to one side is an orchard area with a variety of fruit trees.
