A detached period cottage built in the mid-19th Century and in need of updating set in just under 8 acres of gardens and pasture enjoying superb views towards the south coast.
It offers the potential to extend or develop further (subject to all necessary consents), constructed of brick with part-tiled elevations and a clay tile roof. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the four bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor; two reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor together with a cellar. An outhouse to the rear of the house is linked via a covered walkway and provides a utility area, WC and small workshop.
There are attractive and well-maintained gardens with, to the east side of the house, small wrought-iron gates giving access to a garage, parking area and the gardens. There are well stocked flower beds, a vegetable garden and two greenhouses. There are two further, small outhouses and a below-ground rainwater reservoir. Beyond the gardens is an orchard.
The holding extends in total to some 7.73 acres with, to the eastern boundary of the house and gardens, three paddocks and an acre of regenerated woodland which includes an overgrown pond. There is a secondary gated access from the Brightling Road leading into the land on the north side of the property.
On the opposite side of the road and directly in front of the house, there is a small separate parcel of land in ownership providing potential parking space and importantly, helping to maintain unrestricted views over the countryside, south to the coast.
Prospect House is located within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the rural village of Woods Corner, set on the north side of the B2096/Battle Road, adjoining the local recreation ground, and near to the historic village of Dallington with its large number of listed houses and cottages including the Swan Inn public house which is within a short walk of the property.

The larger towns of Bexhill and Hastings on the south coast are 11.6 and 14 miles respectively. Both Heathfield and Battle have an excellent range of local amenities with a good number of supermarkets and shops and Battle having a main line train station with regular services to London (Charing Cross).
