Tavistock Hall in Heathfield is a magnificent property of some size, believed to be a former private school, dating back to 1897.

The spacious six bedroom accommodation has been systematically refurbished yet still retaining all its character with many architectural features worthy of note, including polished timber floors, picture rails and the original grand oak staircase.

The accommodation provides six very good size bedrooms and two bathrooms on the upper two floors.

There are two large reception rooms and a beautiful kitchen/breakfast room with attractive fitted units with hard wood work surfaces and a Stanley gas-fired range cooker, providing some 3,000 sq ft of accommodation.

The entrance porch is quarry tiled and the reception hallway is large and inviting, with polished wooden floors and a fireplace.

A grand oak split staircase with shaped newel posts and finals leads to the first floor galleried landing.

Block parquet floor, an attractive open fire, a large bay window with aspect over garden and an attractive cornice feature in the dining room.

The sitting room has a feature open fire, bay window with double aspect views and an attractive cornice.

The kitchen/breakfast room is described as a ‘room full of natural charm’, with high ceilings and double aspect views over landscaped gardens.

Upstairs, on the first floor, are four bedrooms with features including access onto a roof terrace, fireplaces, built in wardrobes and polished wooden floors.

There are also two bathrooms, one with a roll top bath and the other a jacuzzi bath.

The remaining two bedrooms are on the second floor, with far reaching views towards the South Downs.
