Fabulous property set on 3 acres in rural surroundings yet within 6 miles of GATWICK airport (but NOT on flightpath), 30 mins train to London (OLYMPICS in September 2012), and 10 mins drive to major motorway network (M25/M23). Sweeping views/walled garden, large inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove, aga in kitchen and beamed ceilings. Loads of character. Three bedrooms in main house; bedroom/bathroom/large attic in annex (could sleep more). Fresh free range eggs every day (in return for throwing a little grain at the hens!).
