OUTSIDE the village of Burwash, there is a beautiful family home that has enough space for a family who love arts and crafts.

Built at the turn of the last century, the house in Burwash Common possesses stunning views over woodland.

The house has pretty much everything you could ask for in a home. There is a drawing room, kitchen, sitting room, family room, two studies, pantry, cloakroom, utility room and a cellar.

All this before adding in the eight bedrooms, en suite bathroom and three standard bathrooms.

Outside of the main building, there is a cottage which has two bedrooms of its own. The cottage also has a pottery workshop and a Victorian glasshouse.

The gardens are also noteworthy with semi-formal lawns; a garden kitchen, potting sheds and greenhouses.

For exercise, sport-minded people can make use of the all-weather tennis court.

If you want to leave the property for a walk or a bike ride, there is a footpath network in the surrounding area. You can also explore the National Trust Property Batemans, the former home of author Rudyard Kipling.

Will Peppitt, head of residential sales for Savills in the south east, said: "Buckles is the perfect house for a growing family who love to entertain.

"Enjoying a popular and pretty village location, the home provides extensive living accommodation and has an array of excellent educational opportunities in the area at both primary and secondary levels, in the private and state sectors."

The house may appear to be deep in the countryside, but it is still close enough to a general store, post office, butchers, florist, several public houses and a primary school rated by Ofsted as "outstanding".

The house does come with a hefty price tag; the guide price is an eye-watering £3.95 million.
