About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Believed to date back to the 1600s is this striking period property, once a former mansion now converted to three separate dwellings. Little Beeches is the well-positioned south-facing wing of this attractive building, enjoying a sought-after situation on the edge of the village with the open countryside of the High Weald within easy reach. Arranged over three floors there are many original features, including wooden floors and doors, character fireplaces and windows, with the stone fireplace in the living room of particular note having charming carvings including the initials of a previous owner, Thomas Dansgate, and his wife. Completing the ground floor is a further beamed reception room currently used as a dining room, a very spacious kitchen and a large utility room, entrance hall with lovely wood flooring and a wc. It is thought that the property would benefit from updating.

The bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors, with two bedrooms on the first floor having access to a large dressing room. There are two bathrooms and a shower room also on this floor. On the second floor there are the three additional bedrooms.

Little Beeches is situated in the pretty and popular village of Ashurstwood approx. 2 miles southeast of East Grinstead. The village enjoys a delightful setting within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the heart of the attractive Mid-Sussex countryside. Within the village there is a Post Office and the well-regarded independent school, Brambletye. Further amenities and a wealth of independent shops and eateries can be found in the nearby village of Forest Row and town of East Grinstead where there is high street shopping. The renowned Michael Hall Steiner School can also be found locally with Cumnor House further afield. Nearby is Ashdown Forest and the Royal Ashdown Golf Course. East Grinstead has trains to Croydon and London from its mainline train station. Road links are excellent via the M25/M23 motorways, with easy access to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports via the A22.

The gardens extend from the front elevation, with a large lawn area enclosed by high hedges and trees offering a good degree of privacy. The tree-lined gravel driveway culminates in a turning circle in front of the house, with parking for several cars on the drive and within two separate garages. Further features include a paved patio, large pond and brick built shed.
