Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to the 16th century, this beautifully converted home retains a wealth of charm with the distinctive architecture of the original oast house creating a unique amount of character.
The exposed beams of the central hallway instantly set the tone for this bespoke home, while the idyllic grounds supply a blissful backdrop to four reception rooms each offering their own welcoming feel. A large double aspect sitting room combines with its adjoining snug to generate a superb space to come together as a family. French doors open onto the patio and an open brick fireplace is an instant focal point, while a further sitting room offers a cosy retreat with its beams and log burner. Generating a refined place to entertain, a formal dining room sits within the circular dimensions of the original oast, and a study provides a superior work from home space. As the central hub of the home, the exceptionally appointed kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with tasteful wood cabinets, granite countertops and a focal point Aga. A central island delineates the impressive proportions and underfloor heating, first class integrated appliances and bi-fold doors are just some of the subtle additions that give a contemporary twist to the beams and flag stone floor. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor.
The charm and character continues upstairs where six bedrooms produce a huge amount of versatility and family accommodation. The timbered walls lead you to a truly special principal bedroom within the original oast house, while three further bedrooms sit beneath the beams of vaulted ceilings. A separate dressing room and hallway cupboards provide plenty of storage. Sympathetically styled, two family bathrooms and a family shower room provide every convenience for today’s busy households.

The distinctive facade of The Barn creates a breath-taking first impression with its original features and a large courtyard driveway and double garage have off-road parking for several vehicles. Step out from the ground floor onto the paved patio or breakfast room balcony and admire the expansive rear garden with its established lawn and mature trees. A vegetable garden and potting shed are perfect additions, and the grounds include a field, two stables and a tack room. The plot is over 3 acres in size.


Hollow Lane is a private road in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of East Grinstead, yet within reach of the railway station (3.1 miles) with its direct links to Croydon and London. The town offers comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities. The A264 leads out of the town to the M23, which connects London, the airport at Gatwick and the south coast. The area is renowned for the standard of its schooling in both the private and state sectors, as well as recreational facilities such as the Bluebell Railway, cycling on the Worth Way, golf and horseracing at Lingfield Park and easy access to the Ashdown Forest, home to A.A Milne's Winnie the Pooh.
