Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome Grade II Listed period farmhouse in a beautifully secluded setting, surrounded by just over two and a half acres of gardens and grounds adjoining open farmland and within half a mile from Climping beach.

This impressive period farmhouse is largely Georgian in character but has earlier origins, the stone built gable end just to the north of the main Georgian house, being the original timber framed yeomans farmhouse dating from the 17th century. The Georgian parts of the house have all the elegance and proportions associated with the period with high corniced ceilings, large window bays with panelling and shutters and impressive fireplaces. The Victorians also added to the house creating a breathtaking music room of over 24ft in length and having a 14ft high corniced ceiling and full height sash windows making an ideal space for parties and entertaining. In addition to the main reception rooms, a cosy beamed sitting room and farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with four oven oil fired Aga provide cosy, welcoming rooms in the winter months.

The generous accommodation on the first floor is reached by way of two staircases and provides five bedrooms including a guest or principal suite with shower room, together with additional well appointed shower room and family bathroom to serve the remaining four bedrooms. Four further rooms, two with attractive beams and exposed timber frame, can be found on the second floor and it is thought that these could be adapted to provide additional bedroom accommodation if required.

Double gates from Brookpit Lane open onto a courtyard surrounded by an excellent range of brick and flint outbuildings including two double garages, one with inspection pit and several workshops, one with three-phase power. Partially walled gardens lie to the eastern façade of the property with an area of wild flower garden to the south. A stone terrace runs the length of the house and is approached via doors from both the kitchen/ breakfast room and garden room, which has a run of bi-folding doors opening onto the terrace and having lovely views over the surrounding gardens and grounds.

This sheltered sitting area is planted with wisteria, magnolia grandiflora and clematis, looking out over broad areas of lawn to the paddock and farmland beyond. Around the house area is the garden divided by neatly clipped beech hedging and a five-bar gate provides an access to the manageable kitchen garden planted with vegetables and fruit trees including apple, pear and plum. From here an arched gate set in an attractive stone wall leads through to the heated swimming pool, which is situated in a walled courtyard garden with sun terrace and borders planted with acanthus, climbing roses and agapanthus. An attractive brick built pool provides a focal point for summer entertaining as well as changing facilities and a plant room.

To the south of the formal gardens lies the paddock enclosed by a post and rail fencing and lined with a beautiful avenue of tall poplar trees along its western boundary which adjoins neighbouring open farmland. To the east of the paddock there is a most attractive pond home to a variety of wildlife and a nearby gate in the vegetable garden provides convenient secondary access to the lane.
