4 Bedroom, House | The Street, Selmeston

An historic and exceptionally fine period house set within gardens and grounds of about 4 acres in this idyllic location.

This absolutely charming Grade II* listed house dates back to circa 1600. Originally a Wealden Hall House it was also used as a priest safe house at the time of the reformation. The property has been substantially and tastefully improved over the years and care has been taken to preserve the wealth of charm and period features including an outstanding inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. The property also benefits from a separate annexe/apartment above the triple garage which has planning permission for further accommodation if required. Most of the accommodation secures views over the delightful gardens which provide an outstanding private setting.
