Surrounded by typical Wealden countryside and woodland, the village is much photographed for is inherent beauty. The property is a good example of the vernacular architecture of the Weald with traditional white weatherboarding on the principal elevations. Set back from the road, the house is approached by a wide drive leading to a spacious double garage.The more commonly used entrance is to the side of the house and leads directly into the farmhouse kitchen, with a good range of fitted cupboards and a long peninsular unit. A door from the rear of the kitchen leads into a short hallway with a cloakroom. Beyond is a large family/play room.   A further door from the kitchen leads into the dining room at the front of the house. Off here is a small entrance vestibule with the front door. The double length reception room forms the remainder of the ground floor. This is a lovely room with masses of character, with a beamed ceiling and a huge inglenook fireplace, and the room is flooded with light from windows on three sides. Stairs from the reception room lead to the central first floor landing. There are two large bedrooms to the front (one with an en-suite shower room). Two further bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom make up the remaining accommodation on this floor. A further staircase leads up to two further bedrooms.The gardens are an unfailing delight. Set around two large, interconnecting ponds, pathways meander around the perimeter of the ponds over small bridges and traversing small brooks. There are also large areas of open lawn. The garden has been sensitively planted with many and unusual varieties of specimen trees, giving the whole a feeling of maturity, tranquillity and splendour. At one end of the garden and approached over a track from a secondary entrance is a range of adjoining garages.
