Price £1,350,000 6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Maresfield 6 5 An exceptional energy conscious rural residence set in the rolling landscape of the East Sussex countryside. Situated in a convenient but private location on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, we are pleased to offer to the market 'The Old Oast'. An exceptional energy conscious and versatile rural residence set in the rolling landscape of the East Sussex countryside. Situated in a convenient but private location on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, we are pleased to offer to the market 'The Old Oast'. This wonderful family home has been occupied by the current owners for nearly seventeen years; a testament of the potential suitability to a growing multi-generational family. Not only does the property offer all the space inside and out you would need but its proximity to train stations, bus routes & schools sets it apart from similar period properties. In addition the Ashdown Forest plus approximately two and a half acres of private land are sure to satisfy your personal interests. It is also worth noting that the property has previously been used as a Bed & Breakfast and there is great holiday let potential. Tucked behind Maresfield Village is a little known tree lined lane called Underhill. As you pass by Underhill Lake to your right the driveway for the oast arrives on your left. Wending up away from the lane the property rises into view ahead. There is plenty of parking options either to the left before you reach the house or at the driveways end which finishes at the triple garage and wood store. We believe the old oast has its origins set in the 18th Century with the square barn being added in the 19th Century, further extensions in the 1920's, 60's and finally the two storey extension in 2000 which is where we begin. The rear door which is most regularly used opens up into the kitchen; a light, bright and spacious room offering dual aspects. There is a range of wall and base units with an integrated induction hob and oven, plus space for a fridge, freezer and dishwasher. A separate utility area has an extra sink and offers lots of additional space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Alarm systems and the boiler can also be found here. Passing through the kitchen you reach the heart of the home. A substantial split level family day room centred around a large log burner from which you can gain access to every other part of the house including the garden, pool area and annexe. There is ample space for a large dining table, perhaps a music area and a very comfortable snug; all of which benefit from sunlight pouring in from the south east elevation to the north west throughout the day. The exposed brickwork coupled with the oak flooring leave a crisp modern finish to this part of the home. Stepping up and past the snug area you will find the guest quarters where two well proportioned double bedrooms have sole use of the downstairs shower room. Nicely independent from the three first floor bedrooms suitable for visiting relatives or maybe as a study or home office. Back though the family room a door leads into an inner hallway with an additional cloakroom before reaching the original entrance hallway situated between the roundel and the barn. The roundel has been utilised as the formal dining room whilst the barn is the main sitting room, a peaceful and charming lounge in which to unwind at the end of a long day. A beautiful inglenook fireplace with log burner is the focus of the room and is complimented by high ceiling timbers and plenty of windows overlooking the gardens beyond. The first floor briefly comprises of three bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en-suite. As you reach the landing and take your first left you step in to what is, despite not being the largest, the master suite. A bright dual aspect bedroom directly above the sitting room below which benefits from a proper walk in wardrobe/dressing room and en-suite shower room with bidet. Across the landing passing by a further bathroom and separate wc is the roundel bedroom which has access to a massive conical loft; whilst this additional storage is useful it could be opened up to create a vast vaulted ceiling or even converted into another room! The largest bedroom is saved until last, spanning over thirty square metres with plenty of eaves access and a further walk in warbrobe it also has sole use of the largest bathroom too. A final point worth mentioned is the big airing cupboard which is a small room in itself located back just off the landing. Across from the oast is the sympathetically refurbished barn which has been tastefully converted into a self-contained annexe offering in excess of 1000 sq.ft if you include the office. Whilst the current owners have used the barn for relatives its easy to imagine a thriving Bed & Breakfast or 'Airbnb' holiday let here. The front door leads into the expansive open-plan kitchen/living room which has retained a wealth of original features with its exposed light beams and vaulted ceiling before a hallway leads on to the bedroom, utility room and bathroom. It is feasible to extend this hallway and incorporate the office (which currently can only be accessed externally) into the annexe to create a second bedroom. Great care was taken when rebuilding the barn to ensure its efficiency was high and carbon footprint low. Dual function solar panels not only power the underfloor heating in the barn but is connected to the pool too. The attached plant room is conveniently located for ease of maintenance. Externally you find yourself in an elevated position right in the middle of just under two and a half acres of the most beautiful gardens and grounds. The whole property is surrounded by wonderfully mature trees and open paddocks and fields which gives the illusion of you garden going on forever. The low maintenance gardens surround the oast and barn which centre around the swimming pool and terrace areas which benefit from sunshine through into the evening. As you can imagine there have been plenty of long summer evenings spent in the company of good friends and family. Just away from the house is a large pond within a beautiful wooded copse and for maintenance a number of sheds and a workshop. It is also possible to walk directly from your garden onto neighbouring fields towards the Weald way and the Ashdown Forest making this the perfect spot to begin a circular walk with a variety of pubs nearby offering refreshment. The nearby towns of Uckfield & Crowborough offer a comprehensive range of shopping facilities whilst further afield Tunbridge Wells, Lewes & Haywards Heath are better known for their bars, restaurants and leisure pursuits. The Ashdown Forest provides unlimited riding and walking routes plus a number of golf courses including the Royal Ashdown at Forest Row. There are a variety of both private and state schools also within easy reach. Property Features Detached Oast House with 18th Century Origins One/Two Bedroom Detached Barn Annexe Solar Heated Swimming Pool & Terraces Over Two Acres of Open lawns plus a Wildlife Pond Peace, Privacy & Seclusion in a Non-Isolated Position Triple Garage, Office & Workshop Five Sociable Reception Rooms Walking Distance from Maresfield Village & Post Office Approximately Two Miles from Buxted Mainline Railway Station Eco-Friendly Solar Panels Media
