The style and size of this fabulous Victorian period home must be seen to begin to be appreciated. As its name belies, 'The Royal Oak' is the former Village pub, now this considerately converted and beautifully refurbished property, affords the most capacious accommodation in the very heart of Piddinghoe. Offered for sale for the first time in three decades, the present owners have been wholly responsible for crafting a family home for the ages, this by the way in which they have adapted the bountiful accommodation with a carbon friendly footprint. The works have included: Replacement windows and doors throughout and solar panels to the roof in 2012 with harvesting mechanism that provides an annual FIT of circa £1,1000. In 2017 the oil fired central heating was replaced by an Air Sourced Heat Pump which provides the present owners with a valuable annual FIT rebate of circa £2,600 per annum. The gardens have been extensively landscaped and comprise a broad shingle driveway, providing extensive off road parking along with access to the detached Double Garage. The garage has a pair of electrically operated 'sensor' security doors, with electric light and power with courtesy door to garden. Flanking the the driveway is a broad expanse of lawn that is most private and screened by mature Hornbeam hedging and a period stone and flint retaining wall, with a feature garden well that has been capped off for security yet still retaining water with electric pump. To the south eastern elevation of the property is a secluded spacious walled courtyard garden laid to broad flagstones, that affords a bright southerly aspect and an area of tranquility.
Mains water electricity and drainage are appointed to the property, which has accommodation over three levels as detailed in the accompanying floor plan.

The village of Piddinghoe lies south of Lewes between the River Ouse and the sea. Piddinghoe lies approximately four miles distant from Seaford and just two miles to the north of Newhaven. The village itself has an active social calendar, village hall, tennis court, recreation space, and fishing and sailing on the pond nearby. The county town of Lewes is approximately seven miles distant and offers more comprehensive amenities along with individual specialist boutique shops. Mainline railway station at Lewes offers connections to London Victoria (just over the hour), and the ferry port at Newhaven offers services to Dieppe. The city of Brighton and the Universities of Sussex and Brighton are both about 10 miles distant, and the famous Glyndebourne Opera House is located on the outskirts of Ringmer.
