The accommodation offers an ambiance of space and light throughout and has been imaginatively designed combining a mixture of traditional features with contemporary aspects and presents ideal options for those keen on entertaining and/or have a growing family. A focal point of the interior is the stunning vaulted kitchen & breakfast room, there are also 3 reception rooms, each with fireplaces, a study, cloakroom plus the original 'Bake House'. On the FIRST FLOOR 3/4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms there is also a SECOND FLOOR attic playroom. Outside the charming landscaped grounds set the house off beautifully with picturesque gravel walkways, sunken Mediterranean garden and wide rear terrace making the most of the views. A side entrance drive leads to a spacious parking and turning area with Detached double garage and in turn gives access to the stable yard and balance of the land which is mainly laid to pasture with pretty woodland copse.

Situation - Stonehurst Lane is a quiet narrow lane typical of the backwaters in this part of Sussex with beautiful, uninterrupted views from various vantage points.
An easy drive through country lanes leads to Jarvis Brook/Crowborough main line station in one direction and the historic village of Mayfield 2 miles in the other. Royal Tubnbridge Wells is about 15 mins. By car, the market town of Heathfield is about 10 mins. Drive and the coast at Eastbourne with popular Sovereign Harbour is about 17 miles. There is a good selection of state and private schools throughout the area to include nearby Skippers Hill Primary School.
Accommodation-Refer To The Floor Plan - Set over 3 floors (2nd floor is a play room) the property has many period features but is not over bearing. The current owners have kept to light colours on the painted walls and the property has many windows to allow light into all the rooms. The KITCHEN and BREAKFAST ROOM is modern inside with a vaulted ceiling and feature brick end wall with recess for the cooking range. The DINING ROOM is in the main part of the house joined by an old bake house from the kitchen and breakfast room. Two further RECEPTION ROOMS both with fireplaces and beams to the ceiling offer flexible living, currently one is being used for a home office, however there is a handy space adjacent to the end reception room which is the home office as per the floor plan. On the FIRST FLOOR there are 3/4 BEDROOMS and TWO BATHROOMS- The 4th bedroom has a wall with a door sized gap slightly dividing the room (we believe this wall could be removed to make the room one even size if required - Listing Officer consent and building regulations may be required).
The SECOND FLOOR has been painted, decorated and carpeted to provide a play room.
Equestrian Facilities - STABLE BLOCK - single line of loose boxes timber constructed under tin and felt roof with store room, currently with 6 stables. Power laid on with water. The existing stables require updating. With Planning consent the current location of the existing stables may suit replacing with a new complex and outdoor arena.
Gardens, Land & Grounds - Much thought has gone into the gardens and are a true delight. A brick walled and floor sunken Mediterranean garden at the bottom of the garden, a pergola area halfway up the garden and to the side a charming box hedged brick and specimen tree lined gravelled path leading to the rear of the house. Further stone paved area for sitting out to the rear of the kitchen with a view down to the end of the garden and open fields to the right.
In total acreage is believed to be 10 acres (*TBV). Approx 1 acre of gardens/grounds/garaging/dwelling etc. Approx 9 acres of pasture and small amount of woodland.
The acreage stated at the property is 'TBV - *To Be Verified', which means that the land has not been measured formally by Equus and its sellers/clients other than by obtaining the Title Plan from Land registry with the acreage clearly marked where available. Interested applicants/buyers are advised that if they have doubts as to the plot size and wish to have verification of the exact size of the entire plot, they will be required to make their own arrangements by appointing the services of an accredited company who can measure the boundary for a compliant Land Registry Title Plan.
