This remarkable Grade II Listed residence, built in 1835, boasts a wealth of period features that contribute to its timeless charm. Notable among these are fabulous stone mullion windows with leaded lights, an imposing stone entrance porch, and the presence of exposed beams throughout. The bedrooms, with their high vaulted ceilings and exposed joinery, exude a sense of historical character.

The well-appointed kitchen/dining room is equipped with a lovely cream AGA, complemented by sleek granite work surfaces, ample cupboards, drawers, and a charming butler’s sink. Adjacent to this space, there is a convenient fitted utility room for added functionality and cloakroom.
The triple aspect drawing room is a fantastic space, adorned with an attractive bay window that opens through French doors directly to the gardens and there is a separate sitting room/snug providing a cosy, less formal area with welcoming wood-burning stove.

The first floor of the house features four elegant bedrooms, all easily accessible from the landing and well served by a family bathroom and en suite shower room.

The gardens predominantly lie the southern side with an attractive terrace adjoining the house providing a wonderful place to sit, dine and entertain whilst enjoying the fine outlooks, featuring a Hartley Botanic greenhouse. A large area of lawn is interspersed with flowering shrub borders and established trees – some of which are fruit bearing amongst excellent raised beds. The gardens adjoin farmland with post-and-rail fencing defining boundaries and allowing some fabulous rural outlooks.

At the front, the drive from the road is shared initially with the neighbour and then divides to this property and continues through private five bar gates to a good parking and turning area with a detached open-fronted garage.

Occupying a privileged position just off the High Street, Stairs Farmhouse finds its idyllic location in the picturesque village of Hartfield, which holds a special place in literary history as the beloved home of the renowned A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin.

The village itself offers a vibrant community atmosphere, complete with thriving local shop, welcoming pubs, a charming church, primary school and delightful village cricket green. Additionally, Ashdown Forest is close-by, featuring endless stretches of beautiful open heathland, interlaced with enchanting footpaths and bridal paths, beckoning exploration and leisurely strolls.
