Our home

Our home was completely rebuilt in 2010 with a contemporary almost-Mediterranean design. There are a large number of living spaces downstairs, all principal areas with South-facing views over the beautiful gardens. We usually congregate with friends in the large open-plan kitchen-living-dining area, basking in the Aga range cooker that floods the room with winter warmth and in summer floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors open the whole room on to the terrace. Those wanting peace and quiet have lots of choice of places to sit and relax-the large Study with wide-screen TV and sound system, the light-filled glazed Conservatory or the formal dining room, all of which have wonderful views. All the furniture and fittings are modern with simple clean lines. There are four beautiful double bedrooms (two en-suite) and one twin-bedded room, so we can accommodate up to ten people with ease. The Master Suite has a separate dressing area, a "Juliet" balcony overlooking the gardens and the en-suite features twin marble sinks, an over-large triangular bath tub and walk-in shower. Four of the bedrooms have air-conditioning. The beautiful garden opens out the further down you go and extend to 1.8 acres including a woodland trail,trees,lawns, flower-beds,ponds and a stream.The detached heated indoor swimming pool with electrically operated roller cover and under-water lighting is an exceptional feature.We may also be able to include a visit/ stay at our award-winning contemporary 4-bedroom beach house ( just over an hour away, directly on Southern England's best beach and a few minutes away from the historic town of Rye with fabulous history, shopping, restaurants and a golf course rated in the top 20 in England.

Some of the UK's largest shopping malls are less than 30 minutes away.
