The Property: A magnificent detached Grade II* Listed late 16th century oak framed Wealden Hall House, first time on the market in 40 years, presenting mixed elevations of brick, exposed timbers with plaster infilling and mellow clay tiles, set with aluminium framed double glazed windows beneath a pitched and half hipped clay tiled roof with catslide to rear. Risebridge Farmhouse, originally known as ‘Ryesbridge’, had been split into two dwellings and then divided into four cottages when the current owner bought the farm in 1976. In 1978 the farmhouse underwent extensive renovations which included reinstating the property into a single dwelling. At that time the property was not listed and improvement works included extensive insulation and the constructing of inner cavity walls. Many features indicative of the period include impressive ceiling beams, timbers and inglenook fireplaces, latch cottage doors, wide oak floorboards and some mullion windows. Particular features include the fine drawing room with stunning inglenook fireplace with seating, with heavy oak bressumer. The equally impressive kitchen/family room also has a significant inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove with interesting chamfered bressumer beam, fitted with simple solid oak base level cupboards, oil fired four oven Aga, Roma Limestone ‘Opus Romanos’ floor, walk in larder cupboard, double aspect with lovely views out across the gardens. The garden room, added in 2005, has an attractive vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers, Solarlux bi-fold double glazed windows with fine outlook across gardens.

A wide oak staircase leads up to a galleried landing with oak balustrade and wide oak floorboards. Latch cottage doors lead off to four bedrooms, all with walk in wardrobes. A master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and double aspect, enjoys fine views out across the gardens and fields beyond. Two separate shower rooms and a family bathroom are also arranged over the first floor. Bedrooms five and six arranged over the second floor, set partially beneath eaves featuring Queen Post, oak roof trusses and curved braces providing ideal teenagers suites. A particular feature are the excellent ceiling heights and abundance of windows. 

Gardens & Grounds: Risebridge Farmhouse is approached over an initially shared gravelled drive, sweeping down to vehicular parking and a twin bay open fronted garage by Roundwood of Mayfield with pitched and half hipped tiled roof with cat slide to rear. The established gardens and grounds run to all sides, punctuated with established shrubs and trees including oak, willow and beech. A Tennis Court is positioned at the top of the drive refurbished in 2015. To the rear of the house is an extensive paved terrace with riverbed flagstones to match older Yorkstone with raised brick rose bed. The whole enjoying a southerly aspect overlooking fields and farmland. A stream borders the southern boundary and we are informed fishing rights exist. 

Agents Note: The properties neighbouring Risebridge Farmhouse are all part of the family owned Risebridge Farm complex which include a health and sports club, beauty salon, small offices, private residential homes and an equestrian centre, the majority of which are served by a separate driveway off Peasley Lane.
