Harlings forms a wonderful un-listed ‘Country Estate’ on the outskirts of Mayfield, complete with around 7,000 sq.ft of accommodation, to include the main Farm House, the separate cottage, garages, games rooms and outbuildings, plus the tennis court, swimming pool and 21 acres of paddocks and woodland.

The property has ample charm and character throughout, to include oak beams, exposed stone and brick, fireplaces and leaded light windows, some of which are double glazed. That said, the ceiling heights are very good throughout the house, a testament to its grandeur. The owners have been in residence for 47 years, and it is beautifully presented and very well maintained throughout, including a brand new private sewage treatment plant, installed in early 2024.

Via the large oak front door, one enters into a reception hall, complete with a fireplace and modern wood burner, wide stairs to the first floor, and a vista through to the rear door and lobby.

The sitting room is a fabulous room, complete with a large inglenook fireplace and attractive dual aspect to front and rear.

The dining room is opposite with a window to front and doors to the side garden, with a charming, flower bed enclosed brick paved patio, forming a wonderful and private alfresco dining area.

Accessed from the hall and the dining room is the kitchen/breakfast room, with an array of bespoke, hand-crafted fitted base and wall cupboards and drawers with corian worktops, and integrated sink, drainer, Aga, electric cooker, and space for further appliances within the walk-in larder/utility.

On the ground floor is also a cloakroom/shower room, and a comfortable snug/family room, which has views over the garden and pond.

The first floor comprises a charming, oak-panelled open landing with sensational views over the fields and countryside beyond. The main bedroom is accessed up a further step, and, combined with the bathroom and a further bedroom, it is considered that the whole of this side of the house could form a fabulous master bedroom, dressing room and en-suite.

The main bedroom enjoys a dual aspect to front and side, the second bedroom has a fitted wardrobe, sink unit and window to side, whilst the recently modernised shower room comprises a large walk-in shower, basin, WC, panelled walls, fitted cupboard and window.

Across the front of the house are two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, with a fifth bedroom facing the rear with the views and an adjacent bathroom, comprising a bath, basin and WC, plus a window to rear. There is a further small bedroom/office with a window to front, which could easily form a third bathroom, if required.

Accessed via a modern oak staircase is a top floor landing with a door to the large attic space, suitable for further accommodation, subject to any necessary consents, with ample storage and a properly converted office/bedroom with windows to side and rear, built in around 2002.

Harlings and Harlings Cottage are both accessed via Lake Street, a much sought after Country Lane to the North of Mayfield, approximately 1 mile from the village itself.

The drive to the main house enjoys electric gates, and provides access to the garage, with an up and over door, and further access to a workshop. There is ample parking, with the tarmac drive also sweeping around to another garage with a store room to one side.

Beyond the driveway is a fabulous pond, with a large oak tree, water fall and flower bed surrounds. A paved path leads from the drive to the rear door.

Attached to the workshop is a Pool House, with the adjacent pool area, being partly wall enclosed with glass panelled fences to enable anyone in the pool and pool area to enjoy the view. The Pool House enjoys a vaulted ceiling, with glass doors facing the pool, and windows to side and front. There is also a very useful cloakroom and changing room area. There is ample space for a shower, too, if one wanted.

The pool is heated via a Calorex heat pump and enjoys a wonderful paved around, with ample spaces for tables, chairs and loungers. There is a small area of lawn and a further outbuilding providing a vaulted games/party room/gym, depending on one’s requirements. The pool, pool house and games barn were restored in the mid-80s by the current owners.

Beyond the games barn is a stable block, now adapted to form garden and machinery stores, plus the pool plant room. Beyond which is the area housing the tennis court, which is hedge enclosed with lawns immediately around the court.

The front garden enjoys a path form a pedestrian gate to the front door, with flower bed borders and climbing plants across the façade of the house. This path leads around to the brick terrace by the dining room, with the mature flower beds, shrubs and trees forming a wonderful natural boundary.

The rear garden is mainly set to lawn, with mature trees, shrubs and formal landscaping in the form of stone steps leading to the paddocks, and a man-made flat area, which has housed marquees for family weddings and parties through the years. This is where one gets the best of the views out across the paddocks and countryside beyond.

The land has various access gates, with the main one directly accessing the fields, plus a further gate to the woodland, and a further gate accessing the outbuildings near the party barn. In total, there are paddocks and woodland amounting to approximately 21 acres, with a natural pond, with flowering shrubs, mature trees and a haven for ducks and geese which make it their home each year.

The accommodation comprises an entrance lobby and hall, with a dining room to one side, with windows to side and rear and double doors to the kitchen, with a further window to side and an array of cupboards and drawers, integrated sink, cooker and space for further appliances.

On the opposite side of the hallway is a good sized sitting room, again, with a dual aspect and a fireplace.
