Description

Doctors Barn is a wonderful Grade II Listed period barn with attractive gardens and a detached garage with adjoining studio/workroom with open loft storage above. This classic Sussex barn was very sympathetically converted in about 2003/4 retaining many original features including the mellow stone walls and weather boarded elevations under a clay tile roof.



Situation

Set in lovely countryside within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property is situated just under a mile from the village of Netherfield which has a cafe, shop and post office as well as two public houses.  The historic town of Battle, famous for its connection to 1066, is about 4 miles away with its beautiful Abbey and High Street with a good range of shops and amenities.  The market town of Heathfield is about 8 miles in the opposite direction and provides a good range of shops, services and supermarkets, including a Waitrose.



The coastal towns of Hastings and Eastbourne are 10 miles and 17 miles respectively.  The royal spa town of Tunbridge Wells is 20 miles to the north, all providing comprehensive shopping, social and cultural amenities.



Battle, Robertsbridge (5.3 miles) and Etchingham (6.6 miles) have main line stations with regular services to London.  The nearby A21 gives access to the M25 and wider national motorway network. 



There is a good choice of schooling in the area, in both the private and state sectors, including Netherfield and Dallington C of E Primary Schools, Claverham Community College at Battle, Battle Abbey School, Vinehall at Robertsbridge, St Bede's at Upper Dicker, St Andrew's at Eastbourne, Eastbourne College, Claremont Senior School at Bodiam and Marlborough House at Hawkhurst.

 



Accommodation

The impressive interior is light and well designed with magnificent timbers and tall windows replacing the original cart doors. The open-plan, vaulted sitting room which links with the kitchen and dining area is a spectacular feature; enhanced by the equally impressive open, steel and glass stairway which leads up to the master bedroom suite.



The double-height vaulted drawing room has a wood burning stove and wood flooring runs all the way through to the kitchen and dining areas; the contemporary kitchen comprises a range of fitted floor units with integrated appliances.



Double glass doors lead out to the garden on the east side of the barn and steps on the other side of the room lead down to two bedrooms and a bathroom and the main entrance to the property.



The first floor/galleried master bedroom suite incorporates a glass and steel landing; the good-size bedroom has a fitted wardrobe and skylight window and an en suite shower room.



Outside



The gardens are a lovely feature, extending to both the south and the east of the property with two areas of lawn interspersed with distinctive borders and flower beds displaying an excellent variety of plants and shrubs. Closer to the house is a large kitchen garden with raised beds.



The detached garage was a more recent addition to the property and incorporates a large garage to one side and to the other, a studio/work room with open loft storage area above. The driveway provides ample parking for a good number of cars.
