The light and open plan kitchen/dining room features a large central island, Aga with pretty tiled splashback and range of storage units with space for further appliances. A raised area of wooden parquet flooring surrounding an open fire with a decorative mantel lends a sense of elegance to the living room which opens to a bright and sizeable conservatory currently serving as an artist’s studio but also ideal for relaxing, entertaining or simply admiring the gardens.

The property is situated on the edge of Forest Row village, desirable for its location close to the 6,400 acres and extensive walking routes of Ashdown Forest and the Royal Ashdown Golf Course.
