Agents Note 
Please note that these details have been prepared as a general guide and do not form part of a contract. We have not carried out a detailed survey, nor tested the services, appliances and specific fittings. Room sizes are approximate and should not be relied upon. Any verbal statements or information given about this property, again, should not be relied on and should not form part of a contract or agreement to purchase.

From Heathfield proceed towards Eastbourne and entering the village of Horam. Going through the village in a southerly direction you will reach a mini roundabout. Turn left here into Horebeech Lane. Continue along this lane until reaching a very sharp left hand bend on which is a small unmade track going off to the right. Take this track and the house will be found after about 200 yards on the right.

Rear Garden 
The gardens extend to approximately a quarter of an acre and are really delightful. The lawns are all level and the garden has been well tended and cared for. A large shaped border is full of mature shrubs and there are other areas of shrub filled beds around the outer edges of the garden. A substantial SUMMERHOUSE has been newly erected with a balcony alongside and a log store behind. There is also a large wooden GLASS HOUSE with a small patio along side it. Behind the glass house is an area designated for use as a vegetable garden with raised beds. There is a garden compost area which is fenced and a row of conifers with a "gateway" through to the patio at the side of the house. The patio then extends to the rear of the house where there is an ornate pond and a slightly raised terrace with a pergola, growing on which is a mature wysteria. A small outbuilding is at the back of the house which houses the oil fired boiler and the door has a dog flap.
