Property description

A stunning estate set in beautiful rolling countryside on the Kent/Sussex border. The estate includes an historic Grade II* listed house, converted timber barn, 3 cottages and extensive equestrian and farm buildings. Set in glorious gardens with pool and tennis court and adjoining farmland. About 203 acres.

Sussex House Farm nestles in picturesque rolling countryside to the south east of Cowden, a charming and unspoilt village on the edge of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex borders. The house is steeped in history with the original two and a half storey timber framed house dating back to 1580 and forming the core. More recently, after the Second World War, the house was owned by the actor Sir John Mills, and later by Roger Hargreaves, who wrote some of his Mr Men and Little Miss books there in the 1970s and 1980s. More recently the Grade II* listed Sussex House Farm has been beautifully renovated by its current owners over the last 15 years and also includes a stunning timber barn as guest accommodation set in glorious gardens and grounds with a swimming pool and tennis court. There are 3 further cottages and extensive equestrian facilities including an indoor and outdoor menage with further extensive farm buildings including an old Oast house. The house and buildings sit centrally within a large block of land which extends in all to about 203 acres and includes about 172 acres of farmland and 19 acres of traditional woodland.
