Highlands Farmhouse is a striking family home built in the 1920s with much of the oak used in its construction being sourced from the nearby Highlands Wood and having an abundance of traditional features and an extensive garden situated in a highly sought-after and convenient location.
Access via the porchway leads to the substantial and grand reception hall, which is currently being used as a formal dining space. The room is a magnificent area in which to receive guests, having a large inglenook feature fireplace with wood-burning stove, handsome wooden panelling and floorboards and tall leaded windows, with a full-height view of the beamed, pitched roof and mezzanine above. Adjoining on either side are the welcoming sitting and drawing rooms, both featuring charming fireplaces of their own and offering plentiful living and entertaining spaces with views of the pretty garden. A useful study sits alongside the drawing room.
There is a smaller and more intimate dining room beside the kitchen, ideal for family mealtimes. The kitchen itself benefits from a range of in-keeping wall and base units as well as an AGA and flows naturally through to a handy separate utility space, cloakroom and laundry room with access onto the garden. From the central reception hall, wide oak turned stairs lead up to the u-shaped mezzanine overlooking the tasteful ground floor accommodation. There are four wellproportioned and characterful bedrooms, all with feature fireplaces, beamed ceilings and diamond leaded windows, offering views of the tranquil garden, paddock and distant views. The principal bedroom shares the family bathroom in a Jack and Jill configuration, while two of the bedrooms enjoy the use of considerable areas of storage within the eaves.
This property has 3.39 acres of land.
Highlands Farmhouse is approacked via a long driveway leading to a large parking area and detached garage. Attractive climbing plants, mature trees, hedges and decorative lawned areas enhance the charm of the handsome façade of the property. A side brick-walled section with arched doorway leads to a decorative pond and beyond to a covered seating area with terrace, offerering a beautiful spot to admire the surrounding landscape. A well-kept privet hedges and fences separate the garden from the paddock, the gardens being largely laid to level lawn and provide ample space to relax and enjoy the sunny aspects.
Highlands Farmhouse sits in a peaceful rural lane whilst also enjoying convenient access to the old market town of Hailsham, with its wide range of day-to-day amenities. Polegate offers more extensive range of facilities and a mainline train station with frequent services to London Victoria and links to Brighton and Ashford International. The property is also well-placed the scenic south coast including thriving Eastbourne and bustling Brighton.
