6 Bedroom, House | Church Lane, Hellingly

An enchanting and spaciously proportioned 5/6 bedroom detached period house of historic importance set within extensive southerly gardens in the heart of picturesque Hellingly village.

The property has been researched by the Wealden Buildings Study Group and is believe to have origins dating from between 1575 and 1595 or the late Tudor period. More recently the property has been substantially extended to provide a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, a large Vinery, a double garage, roof terrace and stair tower. The generous accommodation comprises a number of versatile rooms, many of which retain rare and beautifully preserved period features. Opportunities to secure a period property of this stature are extremely rare and therefore, an early appointment to view is strongly recommended. NB - Listed Grade II
