Description

A unique detached country and equestrian property extending to just under 4000sqft set in 7.6 acres (*TBV) and offering multi-generational family living as well as Airbnb options. The versatile interior is currently divided to provide 4 self-contained living spaces, in total 5/6 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 4 kitchens, and 4 shower/bathrooms. The property has been the subject of complete refurbishment and re-modelling to a high standard by the current vendors incorporating many eco-friendly aspects. The four independent living spaces within the house can remain separated or be easily re-integrated to suit the needs of the incoming occupants.
The well-equipped equestrian facilities at the location include a large American barn with 5 foaling boxes/stables, kitchen, tack room and wash down point, further 4 large ancillary garages/workshops/outbuildings which could be converted for more stabling or multiple other uses, a professionally installed 40m x 30m riding arena and well drained paddocks divided by electric fencing. For riding out there is direct, easy access onto an extensive network of bridle paths stretching to nearby Ashdown Forest to the south and Dry Hill to the north.
Outside a private driveway to the front leads to an expansive parking area and garaging with picturesque gardens offering a burst of springtime colour with mature banks of rhododendron and camellia and woodland.
The property occupies a picturesque countryside location in the High Weald AONB on the East Sussex, Kent and Surrey borders, directly facing Holtye Golf Course and with spectacular views to the rear over its own grounds and beyond.

WHAT THE AGENT SAYS: More than one generation living under the same roof is a growing trend, but whilst elderly relatives moving in with family might not be a new phenomenon, adult children staying at home for longer, or moving back home with their parents after university, is on the rise.
For many, multigenerational living provides a solution to a shortage in affordable housing and high rental costs and according to the Office for National Statistics, the number of young adults aged 20 to 34 in the UK sharing a home with their parents remains at its highest for over 20 years.

SITUATION & AREA AWARENESS: The property is set in countryside location in the High Weald AONB with the Ashdown Forest less than 4 miles to the south. For the rider, Felbridge showground is 9 miles to the west, Hickstead is 26 miles to the south, and Lockskinners, Felcourt and East Bysshe cross country courses are all less than 8 miles away. The pretty village of Cowden is about 1 mile distant with St Mary's Church, village hall, and 'The Fountain' public house. Hartfield is 4 miles and Forest Row is 6 miles away, offering local amenities including shops and restaurants. More comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities are available in East Grinstead, 5 miles to the west, or Royal Tunbridge Wells, 8 miles to the east. The M25 junction 6 is about 13 miles to the north, central London is only 35 miles and for the international traveller Gatwick Airport is about 15 miles distant. For the commuter there are rail stations connecting to London at Cowden, Dormans and Lingfield within convenient driving distance. There are several highly regarded state and private schools in the area including Lingfield College, Brambletye School (East Grinstead), Michael Hall School (Forest Row), Worth School (Turners Hill), Cumnor House (Turners Hill), Ardingly College (Haywards Heath), Tonbridge School and the Kent grammar schools. The nearest primary schools are in Hartfield, Withyham and Hever.
