A beautiful smallholding in a superb rural yet accessible location with a one acre lake and seven associated ponds set in woodland and pasture land with views to the South Downs. Ideally suited to amenity and leisure use.
A beautiful smallholding offering a delightful combination of pasture, woodland lake and ponds extending to about 10.44 acres in all. The property opens onto well maintained pasture land interspersed with young trees and enjoying views to the South Downs. The land slopes gently down to the northern parcel which is predominantly woodland hosting a wonderful variety of trees including mature oak standards, chestnut, beech, lime and willow. Within the woodland is the lake and ponds. The main lake is about 1.14 acres in size with an island at its centre and a sequence of seven smaller interconnecting ponds. There is easy access through the woodland and ponds with wide trackways suitable for 4×4 vehicles and the whole property is stock fenced with a single gated entrance on the eastern boundary.
The lake and ponds were established by a previous owner for course fishing. It is understood that the lake is stocked but has not been fished for a number of years. It is considered that there is excellent scope to re-establish course fishing with some commercial potential subject to all necessary consents. On the land itself, subject to the twenty-eight day rule, any other necessary consents and any covenants that the vendor might impose, a variety of other recreational activities might be enjoyed.
In a superb rural setting surrounded by open countryside with views to the South Downs, the property is located between the popular villages of Halland and East Hoathly just off the south side of the A22/Eastbourne Road conveniently located for access to surrounding towns, villages and the wider national road network. The nearby village of East Hoathly offers a range of local facilities including a village shop, two popular public inns and medical centre. The larger towns of Uckfield and Lewes are about 4.5 miles and 8 miles respectively both providing a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities as well as main line stations with regular services to London. The coastal resorts of Eastbourne and Brighton are also close by.
