360 DEGREE VIRTUAL VIEWING AVAILABLE! Set within 4 acres (TBV) of gardens amidst the wonderful Sussex countryside, Iwood Lane Barn is a Grade II listed property located in an idyllic semi-rural position near the picturesque village of Rushlake Green. A stunning converted barn, dated circa 1502, with an abundance of character; in our opinion this is a rare opportunity to acquire an outstanding example of a Sussex Barn, finished to an incredibly high standard throughout, complete with garage and office complex as well as a self-contained 1 bedroom annex, totalling approximately 5877 sq ft (TBV). The main residence boasts an array of architectural features synonymous with these increasingly rarely available Sussex barns. Of considerable charm and character yet contemporary in style, this impressive 5/6 bedroom family residence offers truly flexible accommodation of generous proportions. The stunning internal spaces have been sympathetically restored, feature a wealth of exposed beams and vaulted ceilings and the addition of some exciting modern luxury home comforts. You enter the barn through glazed double doors, framed by the original 16th Century barn doors, into the light and bright entrance vestibule with oak staircase leading to the first floor. From here you can immediately appreciate the stone tiled floor to the ground floor complete with underfloor heating and oak framed doors used throughout the property. The open plan 31 ft kitchen day room is the heart of the home with picture windows framing views of the surrounding countryside, a wood burning stove and double doors opening to the veranda; a perfect space for al fresco entertaining. A bespoke, elegant, handcrafted oak kitchen is arranged around a central island with granite worktops, integral dishwashers, fridge freezer and an electronically operated Aga. To the rear of the kitchen is a larder cupboard and utility room with plumbing for a washing machine. A particular feature of the property is the impressive 38 ft drawing room with its 16.8 ft vaulted ceiling and stunning exposed beams perfectly framing the centre of the room with triple aspect windows offering far reaching views across the countryside. The room centres around a stone and brick built Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove creating a cosy atmosphere within this vast space. To the front of the drawing room is a bar area with a brick and timber built bar and wine store.
There is a further 23 ft reception room and/or bedroom towards the rear lobby of the property featuring an en-suite bathroom and airing cupboard. The rear lobby also provides an entrance to the self contained annex which is comprised of an open plan kitchen and living room and double bedroom with en-suite. The 19 ft master bedroom suite has magnificent elevated views and a luxurious en-suite with a free standing roll top, claw foot bath, walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall style shower head, his and her sinks and heated towel rail. The rest of the first floor accommodation is made up of three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The L-shaped outbuildings consist of two double garages, one single garage and a workshop including a cloakroom and power supply for commercial tools. Above is a home office/studio with full power supply and internet access. The stunning surrounding gardens comprise an enclosed paddock with post and rail fencing and recently planted orchard with views to a nearby Oast house. A formal garden with mature flowerbeds enclosed by a dry stone wall is located adjacent to rear of the main house. The remainder of the 2 acres of gardens are mainly laid to lawn and encompass a beautiful small lake with a jetty featuring a seating area perfect for a glass of wine enjoying the sun set over the English countryside.
