A beautifully located Grade II Listed period farmhouse set within a delightful garden, and an unconverted Oast House and Grade II Listed Sussex Barn along with two portal-framed Barns and farmland extending to about 26 acres.



Hill Farm is a classic Grade II Listed period farmhouse which over the years has been restored and updated to form a very comfortable and well presented home, and is on the market for the first time in many years. The elevations are of Ashburnham brick with grey headers, half white-painted weatherboarding beneath a tiled roof.

The accommodation is arranged as follows:

An attractive front door leads into the entrance hall which is ideal for sitting and enjoying the beautiful views over farmland, with a further door leading into a spacious reception/dining hall with fireplace (presently sealed). A staircase leads to the first floor and a door gives access to the cellar.

The drawing has an inglenook fireplace with brick hearth, oak bressumer beam and fire canopy; it is a beautiful double aspect room with stunning views over the garden and beyond.

The sitting room has a brick fireplace with oak bressumer beam and inset wood burning stove. Again, there are beautiful views over farmland. There is open studwork to the kitchen. The kitchen has tiled work surfaces, twin bowl sink unit with drain to the side and range of pine cupboards and fitted pine dresser. An LPG-fired Rayburn provides the hot water and central heating and is inset into a former inglenook fireplace. There is also a Neff double oven and 4-ring Calor gas stove.

From the reception hall a door leads into a side hall with a range of cupboards and a door into the utility room which has a stainless steel sink unit with cupboards below, plumbing for washing machine, tumble dryer and space for American-style fridge freezer.

Off the side hall is a ground floor bathroom with panel-enclosed bath, overhead shower, WC and pedestal wash basin.

A staircase leads to the first floor landing where there is a deep storage cupboard. The master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes along one wall and exceptional views over Penhurst and Ashburnham estates. Adjoining is a luxuriously fitted bathroom with Heritage fitments including panel-enclosed bath with shower attachment, pedestal washbasin, WC and bidet.

The second bedroom also has glorious views and a built-in wardrobe cupboard. To the north is a nursery with en suite WC and a study. On the second floor there is a third bedroom and large attic.

OUTSIDE
Hill Farm is approached from a country lane through a 5-bar gate and onto a gravel driveway which leads to a traditional barn/garage 29'7 x 17'4 of brick and timber framed construction beneath a tiled roof.

The garden is a delightful feature of the property, principally laid to lawn with well-stocked herbaceous borders including poppies, sedum, azaleas, peonies, lupins, etc, and a Yorkstone terrace adjoining the front of the house with lavender and clipped box hedging, from where unrivalled panoramic views are enjoyed over farmland and a beautiful pond.

To the rear of the house is a brick pathway with retaining wall and an attractive courtyard with Well, and a timber garden store.

LOT 2
Hill Farm outbuildings are set up a private driveway some 75 yards in length where there is a Grade II Listed former 2-storey Oast House of predominantly brick construction, partly weather-boarded beneath a pitch tiled roof with rectangular kiln and cowl.

There is a single storey area which links to a very pretty Grade II Listed Sussex Barn of timber construction beneath a pitch part catslide roof, with double opening central doors. The Sussex Barn in particular is in need of repair.

Adjoining the Sussex Barn is a portal-framed outbuilding and there is also a separate portal-framed barn to the north of the farmyard.
On the edge of the farmyard is a small period barn of timber construction beneath a pitch tiled roof (in need of repair).

To the north and adjoining the farmyard is a hedge-enclosed field extending to about 3 acres. In all about 4.65 acres.

LOT 3
Farmland extending to about 20.7 acres with two small copses within, one with pond.
