Front door to entrance hall leading through to a central living room providing the main focal point to the house, having an inglenook-style brick fireplace with wood burner. There is a useful study leading from the living room.

The adjacent bathroom is in a 14’ roundel and has a pine floor, roll-top bath, two basins, bidet, WC and separate shower cubicle. There is a useful mezzanine storage area.

OUTSIDE
The drive approach, over part of which one other property has a right of access, is flanked by white and pink cherry trees and leads past the three and a half bay open-fronted cart lodge garaging to ample parking in front of the house.

The established garden forms a very appropriate setting, with brick terrace adjacent to the house, areas of lawn, established trees and shrubs, and a pergola. There is a large natural pond.

The wall-enclosed swimming pool has a heat exchange unit and is set in a paved surround.
Adjacent are two timber stables and a tack room. There is a greenhouse and former vegetable garden.


FARMLAND AND BUILDINGS
The land lies in a single block, having a separate access from the A265 road east of Burwash Weald via a made up length of green lane known as Holton Lane, and also on its south-west boundary, onto Goodsole Lane connecting to the Burwash Common to Stonegate road. The land is bounded to the north-west by a stream known as Furnace Gill and is typical of the area, being undulating and with far-reaching views.

The soil type at the southern end is described on a geological survey plan of Great Britain as Ashdown Beds over clay.

The farmland is principally pasture interspersed by broadleaf woodland, with bluebells, chestnut coppice and amenity shaws. These provide the basis for a small reared pheasant shoot which has developed in recent years.

The farm buildings comprise an old 7-bay monopitch Implement Shed 60’ x 20’ and a general purpose timber and corrugated sheet Field Store 18’ x 18’ - in need of repair.
General Remarks
Single Payment Entitlements are to be included in the sale of the property insofar as they are owned. The vendor will use their best endeavours to transfer the entitlements to the purchaser.
Sporting Rights The land is currently let to a syndicate who have established an excellent small reared pheasant shoot and have an agreement in place with the vendor until February 2019. The purchasers should be aware that the syndicate would very much like to continue to shoot over the farm in the future. The sporting rights are included in the sale.

The vendor has laid out a 240 yard golf driving range with mat and tee.

Rights of Way There is a single public footpath that crosses the land.
