In a wonderful setting towards the edge of the village, enjoying lovely views over its own land and beyond over beautiful, rolling Sussex countryside, a charming, detached barn surrounded by approximately 4.88 acres (1.97 h) of gardens and paddocks together with a stocked lake.

In a marvellously natural setting, enjoying a lovely outlook over its own land and beyond, an attractive, detached, former threshing barn and dairy. With historic associations with the former Old Palace Estate, that now forms part of Mayfield School but was a summer residence for the Archbishops of Canterbury in medieval times, the property was skilfully converted by the present owner approximately ten years ago. Mindful of the natural beauty surrounding the property, the aim was to create an atmospheric home, which provided flexibly arranged accommodation from which the focus was the views. External elevations are of attractive red brick with some decorative weather boarding, under a tall, pitched tiled roof, with the conversion was carried out using fine English oak salvaged from the land itself, which can be seen in the handsome framing, exposed beams and internal doors. There is under floor heating throughout with a mix of flooring treatments including large flagstone flooring, engineered oak, porcelain tiles and carpeting, whilst large picture windows and French doors perfectly frame the views. The accommodation is laid out over two floors, extending to just over 2,380 square feet and is arranged to provide free flowing reception and entertaining space on the ground floor, together with additional bedrooms with the first level given over to two double bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. The central portion of the main barn has a vaulted ceiling, floor to ceiling windows to one side, an open-tread staircase leading to the first floor and a wood burning stove within a brick, inglenook style fireplace which acts as a room divider with the dining room. The garden room is so called as it is a magical place from which to take in the changing seasons but also the perfect spot to observe all the fascinating wildlife that visits the lake. Furnished with oak wall and floor cabinetry the kitchen/breakfast room has granite work surfaces and integrated appliances including a range style cooker. Elsewhere on the ground floor is a guest bedroom, a study/bedroom four and the laundry room. The staircase has wrought iron detailing and leads to the galleried landing, from which are the two primary bedrooms, bath and shower rooms.

Outside
The property is approached from the lane via a five-bar gate, opening on to a wide parking and tuning area in front of a large, detached outbuilding which currently provides covered parking, excellent storage space, lockable workshop and an expansive log store but which has the potential to convert to ancillary accommodation subject to any required building controls. To the front of the barn is a gravelled courtyard area a colourful herbaceous border as well as a kitchen garden with raised beds and espaliers fruit trees. The gardens and grounds have been specifically laid out to capture the natural surroundings and to create a wildlife rich environment. The lake is beautiful and is a haven for wild geese and ducks with fish such as roach, perch and carp and is surrounded by many insect encouraging flora and fauna. Grassland and lawns have spring flowering bulbs in spring, followed by wildflowers such as buttercups in early summer and are peppered with various shrubs and majestic, mature trees such as copper beech, oak, willow, firs, silver birch and fruit trees. The larger paddock has a gate on to the lane, whilst the former stable building has a small workshop attached and also has potential subject to planning constraints.

Situation
The house is very well located off a country lane about half a mile from the sought-after village of Mayfield with easy access to footpaths for walks into the countryside. The 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street includes a charming mix of small, local shops, cafes, a post office and the renowned Middle House hotel and restaurant.
