Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Mistletoe Barn is located approximately a mile down a country track in a peaceful setting of 8 acres of organic gardens, grounds and woodland adjoining beautiful countryside just outside Hurst Green in East Sussex, within easy access of London and the coast.

Unique and rarely found, Mistletoe Barn presents the opportunity of owning a wonderful home with the benefit of facilities that can be used for a wide range of business and recreational activities.

This small country estate exudes tranquillity, being a sanctuary for nature, bees, butterflies and birds and since 2008 has become well suited to its present use as a community retreat.

'It is a great facility for running events,' says the current owner. 'It is perfect for anyone who wants to have a place for a home business - a yoga retreat, a dance school, an artist or writer's studio, a cookery school or for health breaks.'

'While the property would make an ideal lifestyle change for anyone who wants to run a business from home, it would also be perfect for a family with children or someone who wants to live a quiet life.'

Mistletoe Barn is a substantial property including a Grade II Listed 4 bedroom barn, 2 bedroom cottage and 6000sq.ft outbuilding incorporating a self-contained 1 bedroom flat, yoga studio, recreation room, fully equipped catering kitchen, dormitory, sauna room, workshop and store rooms.

The main house features a wealth of exposed timbers, wide oak floorboards to the majority of rooms and slate flooring to the hallway, kitchen/breakfast room, study and utility room.

Outside the property is approached via a long private shared road which leads to a sweeping gravel driveway with electronic gates opening to a generous gravelled parking area to the north and west of the house. There is garaging for four cars and a workshop.

A brick walled terrace area with raised 'herb' garden extends to surround the pool house and covered swimming pool.

Beyond is a lawned area and orchard, enclosed by boundary fencing, with wonderful views over neighbouring countryside.

The expansive grounds, which have been organically managed, continue to the west with a wide variety of trees, kitchen garden, 'forest garden', meadow, orchard, two ponds and a small area of woodland planted with indigenous trees.
