Full description

An exceptionally well presented Grade II listed barn conversion with self-contained annexe and circa 0.36 acres. The property was formerly owned by the pioneering architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, famous for the design of the Albert Memorial and restoration of Westminster Abbey.


Accommodation 
It is believed that parts of Hollis Street Farm Barn date back to the 15th Century. The front of the house has brick and Sussex flint elevations, to the rear a magnificent cat slide roof. The property has been sympathetically restored and more recently improved by the current owners who have converted the barn into a wonderful open plan kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating, integrated Neff appliances and granite work surfaces.

The accommodation is adaptable and has well-proportioned living space with excellent ceiling heights throughout, and a wealth of character features including exposed beams, an original well with viewing window, vaulted ceilings and two open fireplaces with wood-burning stoves. From the upstairs rear bedroom there are views across open countryside. The accommodation now consists of seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, three large reception rooms, utility room, butlers' pantry and a study. One end of the house can be closed off and used as a self-contained annex or holiday let, with its own garden, kitchen, reception rooms and staircase to three of the bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Outside 
The gardens are a particular feature and have been beautifully landscaped with established and well stocked flower beds. The garden totals approximately 0.36 acres and wraps around the property to provide a formal walled garden to one side with lawned area, mulberry tree, water feature and paved seating area. To the other side of the house there is a second garden with step over apple tree hedges and a number of beautifully manicured espalier apple and pear trees. To the side of the oak framed two bay car port (with log store) is a productive vegetable garden with greenhouse, workshop, potting shed, cold frame, 10 raised beds and space for chickens. Internal viewings are highly recommended to appreciate this lovely property.

Location 
Hollis Street Farm Barn is located in a quiet rural position, yet accessible to Ninfield village centre with local shops. Just 5 miles north of the property lies the historic town of Battle in the heart of the Sussex Weald offering many shops, pubs and restaurants and places of historical interest including Battle Abbey. There are also comprehensive commuter services to London Charing Cross and Cannon Street in around 1 ½ hours from Battle, and to Gatwick and London Victoria from Bexhill.

There are excellent state and private schools in the area including Ninfield and Catsfield Primary Schools, Battle Abbey Preparatory School, Claverham Community College in Battle, Eastbourne College and Moira House in Eastbourne, and Bede's at Upper Dicker. The property is surrounded by the beautiful East Sussex countryside which offers extensive walking, cycling and riding on quiet country lanes linking to Bexhill High Woods and The Catsfield Estate.
