AN ELEGANT LATE VICTORIAN COUNTRY HOUSE SET IN SOUTH-FACING PARK-LIKE GROUNDS WITH DETACHED
ANCILLARY ACCOMMODATION AND EXTENSIVE EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES

Description

Situated within a High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Campfield House is an elegant country house of excellent proportions with a versatile self-contained cottage, set in mature south-facing park-like gardens extending to about 2 acres. In addition, the property benefits from extensive equestrian facilities and a further 22 acres of level pasture and woodland which adjoins the gardens to the south.
This lovely home dates from the late 19th century with later additions and, having been sympathetically refurbished, features beautifully proportioned and presented internal accommodation, whilst retaining a wealth of features typical of the late Victorian period. Points of note include;
• High ceilings to the majority of rooms, impressive sash windows, some with working shutters, heavy painted panelled internal doors, limestone and slate flooring to the ground floor with under-floor heating. The reception rooms, kitchen/dining room and majority of bedrooms all enjoy a southerly aspect and vistas over the gardens and grounds.
• Of particular note are the attractive fireplaces which feature prominently throughout the house.
• Principal reception rooms comprise a drawing room, sitting room, dining room and family room and, together with and an impressive reception hall, they provide excellent areas for entertaining.
• The impressive kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceiling and French doors to the terrace, is equipped with an extensive range of painted cupboards, an oil fired Aga and various appliances. Off the kitchen there is a scullery with north facing walk-in larder, and access to a boot room and dog room.
• A staircase leads from the reception hall to the first floor where the main bedroom enjoys views over the gardens and fields beyond and benefits from a luxuriously appointed bathroom with a range of fitted wardrobe cupboards.
• Three further double bedrooms are served by two stylishly appointed bathrooms, one being en suite.
• A wide staircase leads to the generous second floor landing where there are two bedrooms (one currently used as a dressing room) and a bathroom with attic access.
• Planning permission (ref: RR2010/2027/P) has been granted for an orangery adjacent to the drawing room. (This has recently lapsed).

Detached Cottage
• To the west of the main house lies a detached single storey office/cottage, converted in 2004 and featuring an open-plan sitting room/studio, a kitchen, double bedroom and shower room.

Garden and Grounds
• Campfield House is approached via electronically operated double gates leading to an in and out drive and culminating in a parking area to the front of the house.
• The landscaped gardens and grounds are a fine feature of the property lying mainly to the south and west with a substantial terrace stretching away to expansive lawns, evergreen hedging and an array of coniferous and deciduous trees. Bordering the gardens to the south is a 'Ha Ha', affording uninterrupted views over the adjoining fields.
• To the west lies the tennis court and a timber pavilion.

Equestrian Facilities
• Of further note are the extensive equestrian facilities which benefit from separate vehicular access. A substantial barn incorporates 5 Monarch stables, tack and feed rooms and hay store. Outside there are two further stables, an area of hard standing and a 60m x 20m arena with all weather cloth surface.
• There are 5 fenced fields which are all down to grazing with water connected and hedge or fence enclosed.
