This spacious family home enjoys a beautiful setting in the attractive semi-rural hamlet of Barcombe Mills. The property is believed to date back to the 17th century and has been sympathetically extended with later Victorian-era additions to improve the living space. The accommodation is traditionally appointed with a variety of character features including tiled floors, an inglenook brick fireplace and vast beams, with many exposed wooden joists and lintels throughout the interiors.

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall leading to a 22ft sitting room, a family/dining room and separate kitchen with Stanley cooker. There are a number of ancillary spaces, including a boot room, utility room, store, wc, ground floor shower room and larder.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and one single which would make an ideal dressing room for bedroom two or study with its interconnecting door. There is also a family bathroom and wc. On the second floor there is a large double bedroom with period fireplace.

Planning permission has been granted for a single storey rear extension (reference LW/18/0830).


The village of Barcombe is a traditional East Sussex village with a number of desirable amenities including a store/Post Office, primary school and village hall hosting community events. Lewes is 4.6 miles south and offers a wider selection of shops and leisure services, including supermarkets, independent boutiques and bars. Train services can be accessed from Cooksbridge station (3.7 miles) which connects to London stations in just over an hour. In addition, there are regular services via Haywards Heath (12 miles). The surrounding area is popular for its pleasant country walks, the opera at Glyndebourne and country pubs such as The Anchor, set on the banks of the idyllic river Ouse. The neighbouring property to Lawn Cottage is run as a livery yard, making it an ideal setting for those that require stabling and equestrian facilities.


The outdoor space is what sets this property apart, including 1.208 acres of gardens. The property is approached by a wooden electronic gate which provides access to a private driveway where there is space for several vehicles. The gardens are divided by traditional brick and flint walling and comprise an established vegetable plot with raised beds, a greenhouse, polytunnel, wooden sheds, chicken coop, a stone-paved terrace and an expansive lawn with ornamental hedging and mature borders. The garden also features frontage along the river Ouse and a stunning willow tree. The property benefits from an outbuilding with one part divided into 4 areas and the other used as single garage with photovoltaics on the roof, providing a source of income as well as generating electricity.
