Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Dating back to the 1500's, the rear of the house is an old Sussex Hall House, later extended in Victorian times to add the village facing front section of the home. A great mix of old and newer styles, the rear of the home is full of character such as beamed ceilings and original doors, plus a glorious Inglenook fireplace with wood burning grate, making the sitting room very cosy and welcoming. The newer additions have high ceilings, large windows and the drawing room has a real grandiose feel to it. There are even more items of interest as you explore, such as the night bell outside the side door from the time the Doctor was in residence, to the second staircase and attic rooms, ready for conversion. There are 5 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a brand new wet room, plus a fully re-fitted kitchen.

But the wonders do not lie just in the house alone, but step out through the doors into the courtyard and you have a brick built outbuilding where the horses would have once been rested, which is now a garage and ample parking accessed via the driveway to the side of the house. But, walk further on past the covered pergola and there you have the garden with the panoramic views! You can see out across the Dudwell valley, with National Trust land beyond.

Facing the historic high street in Burwash, the location could not be more convenient. The drawing room to the front has been previously used as a tea room, but planning permission is there to convert back to a purely residential property too. There are local shops close by, plus some traditional Inns. Further afield you have Heathfield or Tunbridge Wells for more shopping needs and major supermarkets.

Schooling is well catered for with a popular local primary school, and both state and private schools within easy reach. Travelling to London is well catered for with the mainline station in Etchingham 5 minutes away by car.
