A Savills spokesperson said: “The farmhouse, which is in a private setting with no near neighbours and a beautiful and unspoilt outlook, dates back in part to the 17th century and formed part of the impressive Buckhurst Estate. Within the grounds is the footprint and remains of a single roundel oast, which is also Grade II listed, as well as several derelict outbuildings. In addition, there is a modern concrete portal frame barn and area of hardstanding with potential, subject to the necessary consents, for alternative uses.”

The land includes 88.5 acres of mixed Wealden farmland, with 28.1 acres of deciduous woodland.

Hannah Riches of Savills rural agency team in the South East, said: “This is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a mixed Wealden farm with significant potential to improve, enhance and redevelop, on the edge of the Ashdown Forest.”
