On the first floor there are four bedrooms, the master suite comprising bedroom with fitted cupboards, dressing room with extensive fitted wardrobes and bathroom with twin washbasins and whirlpool bath, both complimented by marble surrounds. The second bedroom was created from two bedrooms by the present owners and could easily be converted back to two bedrooms, thereby reinstating the house to its original five bedrooms.

The house is bordered on three sides by a York stone terrace. The elevated terrace commands breathtaking views of the sweeping lawns bordered by banks of rhododendrons and azaleas and interspersed with fine specimen trees including Variegated Maple, Acer, Flowering Cherry, Oak, Scots Pine and Copper Beech.

At the southern end of the garden sits a clover leaf pond with a footbridge over. Near to the pond is a gate giving direct access to Ashdown Forest.
