Double wooden gates lead to a charming gravel courtyard providing parking for several cars. To one side of the courtyard is the detached double garage. The garden to the front of the house includes a seating area, lawn, a picturesque pond, a timber garden store and log store. Immediately to the rear of the house there is a wide paved seating area, from which steps lead up to a wide path bordered by beautifully planted white flower borders. To one end of the path there is a greenhouse, from which a vine clad walkway leads around the garden to the lawn. From the lawn there is a lovely view over the property to the unspoilt valley beyond.

Located on the opposite side of the lane are the property's four deer fenced paddocks, within which there is a stable block with two loose boxes, a small barn providing a tack room and store, a mobile field shelter, small orchard and a fruit cage. A small stream forms part of the south-western boundary. About 3.75 acres.


Pounsley Mill Barn lies in a rural position well away from roads in the small hamlet of Pounsley, about a mile to the north of the village of Blackboys, which has a primary school and a popular public house.

Uckfield is about 4.5 miles, offering an excellent range of shops and amenities including Waitrose, together with a mainline train station to London. The historic and county town of Lewes is about 11 miles and provides a good range of amenities and shops, together with a mainline train service to London (Victoria about 68 minutes). Tunbridge Wells is about 13 miles to the north, and has a mainline station with services to London Bridge (about 43 minutes). There is a good selection of both state and private schools in the area.

Follow Chapel Lane to the bottom of the hill and take the first turning on the right into Sharlands Lane. Proceed up the lane and the entrance to Pounsley Mill Barn will be found on the left, shortly after passing an oast house.
