IN A PEACEFUL SETTING, A MOST ATTRACTIVE GRADE II LISTED CONVERTED BARN PROVIDING OVER 3,000 SQ FT OF VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION AND VIEWS OVER ROLLING SUSSEX COUNTRYSIDE

DESCRIPTION
Yew Tree Barn is a striking period barn dating from the 18th century, sympathetically converted about twenty five years ago to provide versatile split level accommodation ideal for entertaining and family life. Set amid mature gardens with an all around attractive outlook, it is a charming and characterful country home.

Internally, original beams and timbers are complemented by a wealth of custom made solid oak joinery including traditional latch doors, floor boards and staircase with galleried landing. Some rooms are divided by open studwork, creating an open plan feel and taking advantage of high levels of natural light.   Décor is in a range of tasteful tones and underfoot there are natural stone and terracotta floor tiles along with neutral carpeting.   

The entrance to the property is set within the original wagon entry door which now house tall windows inset with smart plantation shutters. The drawing room is enhanced by a splendid inglenook fireplace housing a cosy wood-burning stove. The adjoining dining room gives access to a good sized study with gallery. There is also a welcoming sitting room with French doors to the terrace which leads directly onto the kitchen/breakfast room. Fitted with a range of cream cabinets providing generous levels of storage, there are natural stone floor tiles beneath and access to the utility room which provides further storage. The west wing comprises a ground floor bedroom and shower room with direct access to the side entrance and drive.

Upstairs the three double bedrooms are accessed via a bright and airy galleried landing. The double aspect master bedroom is particularly spacious and benefits from fitted wardrobes and a luxurious en suite shower room. Of the two remaining bedrooms, one has fitted wardrobes and the other a pretty vaulted storage area/children's play area. A substantial attic above provides potential for the creation of further accommodation with planning permission in perpetuity.

The established landscaped gardens are delightful, lavishly filled with flowering shrubs and herbaceous plants generating colour and interest throughout the year. There is a substantial sunken terrace at the rear of the house providing a secluded and sheltered spot. The terrace may be accessed directly from the sitting room and kitchen, perfect for summer parties. It is surrounded by established rockeries, beds and borders and flanked by a climber clad pergola. Further mature flowering shrubs border the lawn and lead down to the rear where the garden adjoins open farmland. Views over rolling Sussex countryside provide a wonderful backdrop to the gardens and grounds. The gardens amount to about a third of an acre in all.

Generous levels of parking are provided both on the in-and-out driveway at the front of the house and behind a secure gated area at the side of the property. A good sized timber outbuilding located here provides garden and log storage. Views from the gardens over rolling Sussex countryside provide a welcome backdrop.
