Originally the coach house to Amberstone Grange, the property has been extended and totally refurbished by the current owners who have lived at the property for over twenty years. The Coach House now presents a substantial detached five bedroom family home with outbuildings, stabling and manège, together with paddocks, and extends in all to about 6.5 acres with a lovely rural outlook.
The property provides 3,433sq ft of well balanced accommodation arranged over two floors with the rooms being of generous proportions. On the ground floor there is a large centrally located reception hall with an attractive three-quarter turn timber staircase leading to the first floor landing.
The reception hall gives access to all the principle rooms - which in turn open onto a lovely south-facing terrace which overlooks the garden and the land. There is a large sitting room with working fireplace, a formal dining room and an impressive open-plan kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen is in part of the original coach house - as evidenced by the high ceiling - and is equipped with an extensive range of fitted units together with a central island unit.
On the first floor a spacious galleried landing with attractive brick arched window gives access to a very good size master bedroom suite, four further bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom.
To the front of the house is a block paved driveway providing ample parking and access to the garage. There is a south-facing terrace with pretty, well-stocked borders & a small area of garden together with a further terrace to the side of the house with a greenhouse. A separate brick pillared entrance with double timber gates opens directly into the stable yard.
Outbuildings, Equestrian & Land
The attractive traditional style courtyard stable is of brick construction with timber cladding under a pitched slate tile roof and comprises six loose boxes. Adjacent is a timber framed workshop/store. Located away from the yard in the far paddock is a small timber hay/machinery store barn. The manège is accessed off the yard and set to the side of the house, measuring approx. 20m x 37.5m (max).
Beyond the stable yard is the land extending southwards in an 'L' shape incorporating a large pond and divided, into a number of fence enclosed grazing paddocks with gates throughout for access. The paddocks themselves total just over 5.5 acres. Much of the land is bordered by an attractive combination of mature hedging and trees.
The Coach House is within a small hamlet of properties that historically formed part of Amberstone Grange. It enjoys a rural position with a wonderful southerly outlook over open countryside with the South Downs in sight yet is conveniently located for access to local centres and services. The market town of Hailsham is about 2.5 miles and offers a wide range of amenities and a good selection of shops and supermarkets. The coast at Eastbourne is about 11 miles.
Polegate mainline station is just over 5 miles with regular services to the City (London Victoria). The main A27 coast road and A22 London Road are just a few minutes' drive from the property and provide excellent transport links to the wider national road network.
There is an excellent choice of schooling in the area catering for both state and private sectors. Hailsham has a number of primary schools and a Community College offering secondary education and sixth form. Private schools include Bede's Prep, St Andrews Prep, Eastbourne College and Roedean Moira House at Eastbourne and Bede's senior school at Upper Dicker.
