In a superb tucked away location that few will know exists, offering great seclusion, peace and privacy away from the bustling modern world. This six bedroom, four bathroom converted Oast house offers exceptional space with good room sizes and flexibility to cope with changing family needs. Within the grounds is a large detached studio which could be a great place to work from or provide annex/guest accommodation, the options here are considerable. There is also a below ground swimming pool and a lovely circa two thirds plot.

THE LOCATION Glaziers Forge is a small rural enclave of just six properties set about 1.3 miles off the main road down a lane that takes you through lovely natural woodland including beautiful bluebell woods. Few will know that this ancient community exists but it has historic connections to the iron industry that dominated the area in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is situated in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you are looking for an out of the way rural location offering unrivalled peace, seclusion and privacy, then this could be your next home.

The village of Dallington is about two miles away and has a Post Office/Store, primary school, church and public house. Nearby Rushlake Green also has a village store/post office and a public house. Both Heathfield (about 5.5miles) and Battle ( about 7 miles) provide more comprehensive facilities including supermarkets, banks, leisure centres and secondary schools.

The nearest rail stations are at Battle, Robertsbridge, Etchingham, or Stonegate (all within about 7.5 miles) on the Charing Cross Cannon Street Line. Alternatively Buxted (about 12 miles) provides services to London Victoria and London Bridge. The coast at Eastbourne and Hastings is about 18 and 15 miles respectively, with Tunbridge Wells about 18 miles to the north.



THE PROPERTY An imposing converted Oast House, believed to be of mid-19th century origins, renovated and much improved by the current owners and now a super individual home of great character, seamlessly blending the rustic charm of the period with modern facilities. The property has oil fired central heating with cast iron radiators, all the bathrooms have been upgraded in recent years and most of the house redecorated in the last year.

With over 3,500 sq,ft of floor space the property has very generous accommodation currently arranged as six bedrooms and an office, four bathrooms and three receptions rooms but flexible enough to cope with changing family needs.

Within the grounds is a significant two bedroom detached studio (about 1022 sq,ft) which makes a fantastic home workspace, pool room/games room, annex or overflow guest accommodation. The plot extends to over two-thirds of an acre with an attractive 32' x 15' swimming pool set up above the garden level in a extensive paved area. There are two large gravelled parking areas for numerous vehicles. The Willingford Stream forms one boundary.
