Beautifully appointed and recently extended C17th Grade II listed Wealden Hall House set in lovely gardens and grounds of 3.5 acres. 4 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, stunning new kitchen/breakfast room, gardens, pond, paddock & woodland.


Pepper Hall is situated in the heart of the popular village of Wivelsfield Green, a small village between Ashdown Forest and the South Downs National Park, in the heart of Mid Sussex. It is one of the best known properties in the village and is well positioned for the local amenities which include a public house with restaurant, village hall, post office/general store, primary school, a recreation ground with playground and an 11th Century church. The historic villages of Ditchling, Lindfield and Cuckfield are nearby with excellent hotels and restaurants, and recreational facilities are widespread including golf courses and sports facilities. Wivelsfield Green lies almost equidistant between the towns of Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill (3 and 3.5 miles respectively), which both provide a good selection of shops, services and amenities. Lewes (9 miles) and Brighton (12 miles) offer a further range of shops and restaurants. The M23 and Gatwick Airport are within 16 miles.


Pepper Hall is a beautifully appointed, Grade II listed Wealden Hall House, believed to date from 1625 with later additions, and characterised by beam and plasterwork and brick elevations under a part Horsham stone, part clay tile roof. The property presents many fine examples of classic period features such as exposed beams and whitewashed plaster walls, wood panelled latched doors and iron framed windows, and over the years Pepper Hall has been carefully and thoughtfully refurbished to provide accommodation that meets modern standards.

The property is extremely well-presented throughout being arranged over three floors, and offers flexible accommodation which is well-suited to family life. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the extent of the property; the current owners have significantly and sympathetically improved the layout by extending the ground floor to create a stunning vaulted kitchen/breakfast room with honed granite surfaces and modern appliances including an AIMS Aga, and a utility room.

Of particular note are the drawing room and dining room, both of which have original inglenook fireplaces fitted with wood burners, and lovely views across the east walled garden to the meadow beyond; to the south is a sitting room with an adjoining study/bedroom, and a family bathroom is located next to the kitchen.

There are three bedrooms (one en suite), and a family shower room on the first floor; a further bedroom has been created on the second floor by converting the attic.

Pepper Hall is approached from Green Road via wooden gates across a short drive which leads up past the house to a parking area, and is surrounded by pretty formal gardens. The property is well screened to the front by established trees, and bordered by trees and hedging ahead of fences. To the east is terrace leading to a walled garden; the pretty west courtyard has a reinforced glass covered well as a central feature, which pumps water to the garden. A classic tiered stone fountain is the centrepiece of the box-hedge parterre, beyond which lies a fully enclosed kitchen garden. From the kitchen, French doors open to a wooden bridge over the pond, leading to gate and the garden beyond. The remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with an enclosed paddock with orchard and woodland to the north. There is an above ground heated swimming pool situated next to the timber machinery store; there are three further timber sheds and a greenhouse within the grounds.
