A fabulous, four bedroom Sussex-style Period house, complete with a substantial detached barn, with one half forming a two bedroom annex, and the other half as a vaulted entertaining/games room/gym/garage, plus an adjacent substantial outbuilding, a further double garage and stables, approximately 8.79 acres of beautiful gardens and paddocks, swimming pool and a bank of photo-voltaic panels all in a wonderful rural setting within an Area of Outstanding natural Beauty, with views to front and rear. EPC Rating: D.

Haymakers Farm is a charming Period cottage, cleverly extended by the current owners, comprising formal entrance hall with an oak door, stairs leading to the first floor, and door to the attractive dual aspect sitting room, complete with white washed beams, inglenook fireplace with an oak bressumer and cupboards to either side, two windows to front and a further window to side.

The dining room is good sized room to the rear of the property, complete with a tiled floor, window to rear and side and a door to the kitchen/breakfast room, enjoying a matching tiled floor and an array of hand-built painted cupboards and drawers with a two oven Aga, integrated sink, space for further appliances and French doors out to the garden.

Adjacent is a utility room, housing the oil fired boiler, washing machine, a window to rear, plus a rear lobby with the back door to the garden and area for coats and wellies, and a door to a cloakroom.

There is also a charming family room behind the kitchen, with windows to rear and side, plus one wall comprising an array of cupboards and shelving.

Upstairs, there is an open landing with a large window to rear. Bedroom one enjoys some of the best views across the fields to the front, plus an arch to the en-suite, comprising a bath, tiled shower, WC and basin, window to side and a line of fitted wardrobes to one wall, whilst on the opposite side of the room is a dressing room.

There are three further bedrooms, all rather charming and characterful, two with the views to the front, one with the outlook to the rear. The bathroom is to one end of the landing, comprising a panelled bath, basin atop a cupboard and a window to side. There is a separate cloakroom off the landing with a pull chain WC.

Outside, the house is approached via a private, sweeping gravel drive that leads past the main house and on to a large, hedge enclosed gravel parking and turning area with access to the detached double garage and the adjacent stable yard.

A path leads from the drive back towards the house, with a brick paved seating area, steps down to the back door, and direct access to the detached Barn.

The Barn is a substantial building, with one half converted to form a spacious two bedroom annex. As one enters via the French doors, the open plan sitting/dining room enjoys a dual aspect, including a wonderful vista over a private Italian-style lavender garden at the rear, wooden flooring and open stairs rising to the first floor. A few steps drop down to a private kitchen, comprising a range of cupboards and drawers, integrated sink, window to front and space for appliances.

A door from the kitchen leads into a ground floor cloakroom and lobby. To the front of the barn is a covered external 'loggia'; an ideal space for alfresco entertaining, with a beautiful outlook over the garden at the front.

The first floor comprises two large double bedrooms and a shower room. This Annex has currently been used B&B income.

The remainder of the barn is un-converted, and currently provides a double-height vaulted open games room, with a bar and is suitable for a variety of uses, such as formal garaging, gymnasium, office space or a games room, as per its current configuration. There is also considerable scope for further accommodation, if required.

The adjoining store/workshop is accessed separately, and the adjacent outbuilding provides three enclosed store rooms/stables, and an open store. This also offers considerable scope for further uses, as required and any necessary consents.

These two main outbuildings could have a separate access via a part walled frontage and gate to the lane. There is an area of garden and lawn by these two outbuildings, and they access the house garden via a rose arch. The front garden is mainly level, with stunning flower bed borders, mature blue Cedar tree at one end, and an oak at the other, with a thick hedge in between, with an expanse of lawn and paved seating area by the French doors to the kitchen.

On the other side of the drive is the main area of lawn, stretching out towards the paddocks, with a seating area, collection of fruit trees, circular rose beds and formal silver birch plantation with wild flowers and a hedging rose border.

Behind the Barn is the very private swimming pool area, hedge and fence enclosed with paving around the pool and a lawned seating area, a gate to the driveway, access to the barn and access to the lavender garden.

The paddocks are accessed via the main garden and the aforementioned stable yard. The stables comprise two boxes and a tack room, with access to the fence enclosed stable yard, with a vegetable patch to one side and access to the paddocks beyond. The smaller paddock provides a bank of solar panels for income.

The larger of the two fields enjoys views to the South Downs and the surrounding countryside. It can be accessed from the smaller paddock, the garden and also a further gate in the corner, from which the incoming owners will be granted a right of way from the lane over a paddock our Vendors wish to retain.

The house is located in a rural spot between the villages of Cross in Hand and Waldron, but not remote. Waldron is the nearest village, approximately 1.4 miles away, complete with Public House, The Star Inn, and a Saxon church. Cross in Hand provides the nearest local shop at the Esso petrol station. Cross in Hand also provides a gym, pub, bespoke furniture store, bakery, tennis club and rugby club.

The nearby market town of Heathfield provides much more extensive facilities, including supermarkets, banks, post office, library, vets, doctors, cafes, restaurants, ironmongers, greengrocer, florists, jewellers to name but a few, plus other commercial and professional services.

Royal Tunbridge Wells and the coast at Eastbourne are both approximately half an hours drive. The nearest mainline station is at Buxted (7miles), with services to London Victoria in around 90 minutes. Services to London Bridge can be found at Stonegate (9 miles). Gatwick is approximately 45 minutes drive away across the Ashdown Forest.

There are excellent and outstanding local primary schools in the nearby villages, and Heathfield Community Collage for secondary education, as well as a choice of private preparatory schools and secondary schools, many of which have mini-busses for rural pupils.

There is excellent access to local footpaths, numerous golf clubs, Bewl Reservoir, Glyndebourne opera House, Buxted Park Hotel, Bedgebury Pinetum, Ashdown Forest and several National Trust properties.

Services: Mains water and electricity, offset by income from the privately owned Solar Panels in one paddock, mains drainage and oil-fired central heating and Aga.
