**Guide Price 1,150,000-1,300,000**
A handsome period house ideal for an equestrian/farming lifestyle with about 25.7 acres. In a rural but not isolated location and with farmland views. Useful range of outbuildings, hard tennis court, mature garden with large pond and surrounding pasture land.   EPC.D.

Lewhurst Farm is a handsome detached period house, not listed, dating from around 1650 with later additions in about 1850, the elevations being red brick with grey headers, part tile hung beneath a tiled roof. The present owners have undertaken a number of improvements over the last few years to form the property into a very comfortable and well-presented home.

The property is ideal for those buyers seeking a family home for an equestrian/farming lifestyle to enjoy the useful range of outbuildings and 25.7 acres.

The main features are:

- Front door to hall with original quarry tiled floor and handsome staircase to first floor. The drawing room has an open fire place with wood burner in a marble surround, and good views.

- The dining room also has a marble surround fireplace, hatch to kitchen, and good views.

- The sitting room has an inglenook fireplace with wood burner, exposed timbering and links through to a study/playroom.

- The farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room has an oil fired 2-oven Aga, walk-in larder, door to utility room with integral log store and cloakroom. Leading through to the boot room and conservatory which was built in 2012 and has underfloor heating.

- The principal bedroom has a large en suite shower room and there are three further bedrooms plus a recently updated large family bathroom which also has a shower.

- There is an oil fired central heating system, several of the windows are upvc sealed unit double glazed and there are 22 photovoltaic panels on the barn roof providing up to 4kwh of electricity giving an income of about 500 per quarter on the FIT tariff.

These are slightly removed from the house and grouped around a yard with a separate vehicular access extending through to the newly created extensive hardstanding/farmyard area.

Excellent timber and weatherboard clad barn 47'6 x 26' with additional two bays at one end open to provide covered storage. Two new timber loose boxes. Large newly built timber machinery store.

Traditional brick and tile building 49'6 x 12'8 currently former stalls and storeroom. Open fronted car port 30'4 x 10'6.

SPECIAL NOTE: The traditional outbuilding shown on the floorplan has extant planning permission for conversion to a holiday let. Pre-application advice has been sought from Wealden District Council as to the possibility of converting the extant holiday let permission to full residential as well as demolishing outbuilding 1 to create two separate additional dwellings. Initial advice given in February 2017 was positive but this will now be subject to meeting the Council's requirements relating to vehicle movements and impacts upon the Ashdown Forest.

These provide a delightful established setting with separate five bar gate giving access to a gravel drive with large areas of lawn, gravelled paths, flowering shrub borders and two established oak trees. Brick wall and fence enclosed courtyard garden and fence enclosed kitchen garden with raised beds and adjacent soft fruit cage.

Greenhouse and garden shed. Hard tennis court.
In addition, to the rear of the house is an extensive area of lawn with shrub borders and studded with a number of specimen trees and shrubs, daffodils in the Spring, young orchard and a summer house with at the far end, a large natural pond.

This is divided into 6 hedge-enclosed pasture fields, one of which has 2 timber stables, and surrounds the property providing privacy and seclusion. In all about 25.7 acres.
