AMENITIES
The Forge is situated in an unspoilt rural location with views over surrounding countryside, about 0.8 of a mile from the picturesque hilltop village of Brightling, and lies within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Brightling has a handful of period houses and cottages, a village hall and an 11th/12th Century church with its historic stone pyramid tomb, which is said to be the mausoleum of one of Brightling's more eccentric residents, "Mad Jack Fuller".

Robertsbridge village with its good range of local shops and railway station (London Bridge/Cannon Street/Charing Cross) is about 3 miles and Burwash is a similar distance. Battle and Heathfield are some 6.5 and 8 miles respectively. The larger town of Tunbridge Wells, with its broad range of shops and amenities, is 15.5 miles.

State/private schools within reach include Dallington Primary School; Claverham Community College and Battle Abbey at Battle; Claremont at St Leonards on Sea and Bodiam; and Vinehall at Robertsbridge.

DESCRIPTION
The Forge is a very appealing detached period house (not Listed) which has been a much-loved family home for the last 57 years, the elevations being brick, colour washed white beneath a tiled roof. The property would now benefit from a programme of refurbishment and updating and also provides scope for further enlargement, subject to the necessary planning consents.

The main features are:

Front door to the dining hall with a brick fireplace.
The sitting room is triple aspect and has an open stone fireplace and a door to the garden.

The inner hall has steps down to the cellar and the back door to the useful large enclosed utility room/workshop.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a Stanley oil-fired cooker which also powers the heating and hot water. Shower room and separate WC.

The first floor has a landing with three bedrooms and a cloakroom.

The second floor has a staircase to two inter-communicating rooms with windows.

THE FORGE
This forms a detached brick and tile period building which has until recently been used by the late owner who ran a small agricultural machinery repair business, although at one time it was the village Forge. This building stands at a slight remove from the main house, set back from the lane with a separate access, and provides great potential. To the side of this building is a detached brick and tile garage.

THE GARDEN AND GROUNDS
These form an established setting with level areas of lawn, hedge-enclosed boundaries, trees and shrubs.

A driveway leads to the rear of the house where there is a 3-bay open-fronted pole barn, Nissen hut with concrete floor, greenhouse and garden store.

In addition, there are about 7.5 acres of woodland and some 15 acres of pasture fields. In all about 22.5 acres.
