- There is an oil fired central heating system, several of the windows are upvc sealed unit double glazed and there are 22 photovoltaic panels on the barn roof providing up to 4kwh of electricity giving an income of about £500 per quarter on the FIT tariff.

THE OUTBUILDINGS
These are slightly removed from the house and grouped around a yard with a separate vehicular access extending through to the newly created extensive hardstanding/farmyard area.

Excellent timber and weatherboard clad barn 47’6 x 26’ with additional two bays at one end open to provide covered storage. Two new timber loose boxes. Large newly built timber machinery store.

Traditional brick and tile building 49’6 x 12’8 currently former stalls and storeroom. Open fronted car port 30’4 x 10’6.

SPECIAL NOTE: The traditional outbuilding shown on the floorplan has extant planning permission for conversion to a holiday let. Pre-application advice has been sought from Wealden District Council as to the possibility of converting the extant holiday let permission to full residential as well as demolishing outbuilding 1 to create two separate additional dwellings. Initial advice given in February 2017 was positive but this will now be subject to meeting the Council’s requirements relating to vehicle movements and impacts upon the Ashdown Forest.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
These provide a delightful established setting with separate five bar gate giving access to a gravel drive with large areas of lawn, gravelled paths, flowering shrub borders and two established oak trees. Brick wall and fence enclosed courtyard garden and fence enclosed kitchen garden with raised beds and adjacent soft fruit cage.

Greenhouse and garden shed. Hard tennis court.
In addition, to the rear of the house is an extensive area of lawn with shrub borders and studded with a number of specimen trees and shrubs, daffodils in the Spring, young orchard and a summer house with at the far end, a large natural pond.

THE FARMLAND
This is divided into 6 hedge-enclosed pasture fields, one of which has 2 timber stables, and surrounds the property providing privacy and seclusion. In all about 25.7 acres.
