Full property description

The origins of Lark Rise date to the 17th Century, with the property having been extensively enlarged and remodelled by the current owners.

It now comprises a spacious sitting room, with Inglenook fireplace, study, country kitchen with oil-fired Rayburn range (supplying heating and hot water), a separate family room and two modern conservatories. Much of the ground floor has a replica York flagstone floor.

There is a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room to the ground floor, which could be re-configured to create an annexe, incorporating an adjacent utility room as a kitchenette.

A ground floor bathroom, with jacuzzi bath, completes the accommodation on this level.

The first floor includes 3 bedrooms, each with their own character, with the master bedroom offering an en-suite shower room and access to a roof terrace. There is also a separate, family shower room.

Adjoined to the property is a self-contained office suite, ideal for working from home or a small business.

There is a barn style double garage with electric up-and-over doors and parking for 5/6 cars to the front.

Lark Rise is located on the edge of Cowbeech, a sought after Wealden village, between the popular market towns of Hailsham and Heathfield and equidistant, Eastbourne and Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Cowbeech has a thriving village feel, with a 17th Century Pub (The Merrie Harriers) still supporting traditional events including an annual summer fayre.
