Outside there is a spacious parking and turning area to the front as well as a side driveway giving access to the rear secluded grounds which include a lovely sun terrace flanked by manicured lawns with adjoining well maintained paddock plus shed and summerhouse. N.B. There is scope within the plot to add a small stable block with turnout area (subject to permissions).

The property occupies a convenient position on the semi-rural fringes of a village offering local amenities as well as a recommended primary school. For rail links Etchingham Station is walkable or a short drive and gives an excellent access to London in little over an hour.
SITUATION & LOCATION
The property is set back from the road in a protected enclave of just three properties of which the barn is one. The drive gives access to the front of the property and continues around to one side of the property giving access to the garden and paddock beyond if required. Unusually the front and rear views enjoy provisions of protection, as do the three properties as part of an historic farmstead. N.B. This is not the same as being listed but does have a level of protection not normally given to properties.
