A substantial and beautifully situated Sussex barn conversion with lovely views over its own land. About 3.1 acres.

Morgans Barn is a substantial Sussex barn conversion providing flexible, interesting and well-arranged accommodation of some 3,536 sq ft. The welcoming entrance hall leads to the impressive, partly vaulted drawing room which is a lovely double aspect room with full-height windows, two sets of glazed doors to the garden and an attractive open fireplace. The dining room is very well-proportioned and has a wealth of exposed timbers. The superb kitchen/breakfast room/family room is a particular feature of the property. The kitchen area is fitted with an attractive range of white painted units and includes a two-oven Aga, electric hob, an integrated fridge and dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious breakfast area which is open plan to a large family room which includes a wood burning stove and has two glazed doors to the garden.

Approached via a staircase from the family room is a 29' attic room/games room. A study, utility room, boot room and cloakroom complete the living accommodation. The reception rooms are ideally arranged for modern family living and are complemented by a generous principal suite comprising bedroom, large dressing room and bathroom, a guest suite comprising bedroom and shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Other features include a polished oak turned staircase, a beautiful galleried landing, a wealth of exposed timbers and excellent ceiling heights.

This property has 3.1 acres of land.


Morgans Barn is approached via an impressive private entrance drive, which is bordered on either side by the property's paddocks and leads up to the front of the barn where there is a sweeping carriage drive with central lawn. Adjacent to the front and southern side of the house is a superb wide paved terrace which provides the ideal vantage point from which to overlook the gardens, grounds and paddocks beyond. The gardens have been attractively landscaped and planted over the years with sweeping expanses of lawn, well-stocked beds and specimen trees. The two paddocks are immediately adjacent to the southern side of the formal gardens. The gardens, grounds and land provide a lovely setting for this much loved Sussex barn conversion.


Morgans Barn lies in an elevated position in Piltdown, a short distance from the hamlet of Shortbridge with its popular public house. Uckfield, about 2 miles, has an extensive range of local shops, a Waitrose and schools together with a train service to London. Newick is about 2.5 miles and provides a shop, bakery, chemist, primary school and doctors’ surgery. Lewes is about 8.5 miles and has an excellent range of shopping and recreational amenities, together with a mainline train service to London. Haywards Heath, also with mainline services (Bridge/Victoria about 47 minutes), is about 9.5 miles.


Travelling east on the A272, having passed through the village of Newick, after about 1.5 miles turn right, just after the petrol station. Proceed for about 0.6 mile and having passed a turning on the left signposted Piltdown Golf Club, continue for about 180 yards and the shared un-marked entrance drive is the first on the left (immediately before a property known as The Nest). Proceed for a short distance and the private drive marked Morgans Barn is on the left.
