A beautifully presented Grade II listed detached family house situated in a lovely tucked away position that few will know about, yet within a few hundred yards of the town centre facilities. The property sits on a lightly wooded circa 1.2 acre plot that includes a large pond, and it comes with a rowing boat.

THE PROPERTY According to the listing register Bell Farmhouse is believed to be of 17th century origins with subsequent side and rear extensions in the mid-19th century and later. However according to the vendor local historians suggest that there may have been a house on the site dating back to around 1560.

The house was formerly called The Old Workhouse or The Poor House and is listed in the 1831 census as having over 40 residents, including the Beadle or Pilpole. However, this would probably have included residents of a large thatched cottage that stood within the grounds to the right of the main house but has long since been pulled down.

This is an imposing timber-framed building with some red brick elevations and some plaster infilling. It has tile hung upper elevations with a slight bellcast below, all under a hipped tiled roof. There is brick built double garage close to the house (on the site of the thatched cottage) and a wooden former garage in the grounds now used as a log store.

This delightful home has been modernised to a very high standard whilst keeping the key features of the period, including leaded glass windows, a large inglenook fireplace, a wealth of beautiful exposed timbers and polished oak floors. There is gas heating, some double glazing and the kitchen and bathrooms have been refurbished. On the ground floor there is a large hall, four reception rooms, a Poggenpohl fitted kitchen, laundry/utility room and cloakroom. At first floor level there are four bedrooms and two full bathrooms that also include showers, one of which is en suite. On the second floor are three further rooms; these rooms do have some low headroom issues and low access doors but they would be suitable for storage, office or studio purposes.

THE LOCATION Situated just to the west of the town centre in a no through road that provides access to the primary school and just a handful of houses, this property being towards the bottom of the lane in the narrow section that is not suitable for large vehicles. Whilst being really tucked away, it is within about 600 yards of the shopping centre, supermarkets, primary school, doctor’s surgery, bus station and rail station on foot.

Uckfield also offers numerous public houses, restaurants, cinema, library, several primary schools, Community College and Leisure Centre with swimming pool. The rail station provides services to London Victoria and London Bridge from about 75 minutes.

The A22 by-passes Uckfield, linking with the A26 and the A272 to provide access to many surrounding towns and the main road/motorway network, with Gatwick Airport about 26 miles. The town is surrounded by open countryside and just to the north is the Ashdown Forest; at about 6,500 acres it is the largest free public access open space in the South East and a venue for many leisure pursuits. It is also the home of Winnie the Pooh and friends, as immortalised in the books of A.A. Milne.
