A detached country house set in beguiling landscaped gardens with views of the neighbouring South Downs, that are truly something to behold. Built circa 1967 of mellow brick and stone elevations, upper parts tile hung, this all under a pitched clay tiled roof, thus creating a striking family home that is set at the very heart of this thriving East Sussex village. The property is most conveniently situated within level walking distance of the village bus stop, Church, Village Hall and the Public House (Abergavenny Arms). Field House was constructed on the site of a small holding with dilapidated period barns, where it is rumoured that the roof tiles from the aforementioned barns were used in the construction of this property.
As it is today, Field House has evolved to become a truly inspiring lifestyle home. Central heating and hot water are provided by an Air Source Heat Pump. Solar photovoltaic panels boost the electricity supply to the house. This highly energy efficient home is fused with the charm and character that one would associate with a property of the 1930's era with Parquet wood block flooring appointed throughout the majority of the ground floor, along with double glazed picture windows that afford a light and airy aspect throughout the property. Polished quarry tiled window sills are again a throwback to 30's design.
The well balanced accommodation that is found throughout the ground and first floors, is enhanced by a roof void of extensive proportions, that could conceivably provide further accommodation. This all subject to attaining the appropriate planning consents and building certification.
The gardens and grounds that extend just under an acre are simply charming. The front garden affords an array of colour throughout the spring and summer via an array of specimen plants, hardy annuals and an established Wisteria to the front elevation amongst many others. The rear garden affords a high level of privacy with well screened terrace leading to a gently sloping lawn and beyond to a small orchard. All enclosed by post and rail fencing that is interspersed with mature hedging that then meets with a stone retaining garden wall. Extensive vegetable garden and fruit cage. Attached double garage with electric up and over door. Mains water, electricity and drainage are appointed to the property.
