**Guide Price 2,000,000-2,250,000**
An impressive country house of 8,103 sq ft, creatively converted from a substantial barn complex, together with separate pool house/party room, heated swimming pool, garaging, two barns (approx 6,770 sq ft), gardens and grounds - in all about 6.6 acres, in a wonderful rural stretch of East Sussex countryside.

Clarklye Barn is an impressive country house, creatively converted from a substantial former barn complex, the elevations being part brick and weather-boarded. The property was converted around 2000 and the use of high quality materials is evident throughout including extensive use of solid oak, travertine tiles throughout much of the ground floor, timber-framed sealed unit double glazed windows, and an excellent oil-fired central heating system.
The creative design sympathetically combines traditional and contemporary with the central galleried reception hall with glass-roofed atrium providing a focal point for this wonderful family home, which is ideal for parties and entertaining.
The main features include:
Wide oak front door to entrance hall with large cloakroom and excellent coat/boot room with glazed sink and underfloor heating. The entrance hall opens through to the impressive 900 sq ft galleried reception hall with glass-roofed atrium and broad central staircase rising to the first floor galleried landing.
The 52-ft long drawing room and dining area engage with the galleried hall which together make an excellent entertaining space with full height and width windows as well as doors opening onto the south-facing terrace with farmland views beyond. The drawing room section has ceiling heights rising to full height, exposed brick walls, and an impressive brick inglenook-style fireplace.
The excellent and well-fitted double aspect kitchen with large central island and timber flooring opens into the breakfast/family room and has doors onto the west-facing terrace.
There is a separate utility room with adjoining cloakroom and a good sized study.
The billiard room has a fitted bar and further doors to the garden, and there are two ground floor bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms.
The first floor has a galleried landing. The principal suite comprises bedroom with door to a west-facing balcony overlooking the gardens and land; walk-in dressing area; and large bathroom with bath, two wash basins, WC and separate shower.
There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, two dressing rooms, shower room, and family bathroom with both a bath and shower.

This comprises a recently built detached party room, the elevations being weather-boarded beneath a pitched slate roof, comprising: cinema area; kitchen; changing room; shower room and WC. This adjoins the excellent swimming pool 46' x 23' with electric cover set in a wide paved surround - all of which creates a wonderful opportunity for entertaining in the Summer months.

Clarklye Barn is approached over a gravelled driveway, some 450 yards in length, culminating in a very large parking area to the front of the property. There is a broad terrace to the south which adjoins the swimming pool and leads to the rear terrace.
The gardens form an easily maintained setting with level lawns and a central pathway which leads to an attractive ornamental pond with fountain; greenhouse. There are glorious unspoilt views over open farmland to the South Downs.
Excellent range of outbuildings which include:
an open-fronted three-car garage with log store
two excellent portal-framed barns with concrete flooring; Barn 1 approximately 60' x 30'; Barn 2 this is divided into two sections of 59' x 46' and 49' x 46'. There is comprehensive parking available for agricultural machinery.   One of these has been used for housing classic cars and for indoor football.
In addition, there is a smaller area of orchard and either side of the drive are two areas of paddock, one of which has a large pond with summer house.
In all about 6.6 acres.
