For renovation or redevelopment and with acreage, who could ask for more?
Richard Bingham of estate agents and chartered surveyors Batcheller Monkhouse reports that despite the delay in spring weather this has not prevented a number of interesting houses coming to the market, and unusually there are two in particular with acreage and requiring refurbishment.
Meadow Brae, with 5.8 acres and situated down a country lane on the outskirts of Herstmonceux is a spacious older style house which requires substantial renovation.
The accommodation comprises two reception rooms, garden room, breakfast room and kitchen with covered passage to the log store and garage, upstairs are five bedrooms, bathroom and separate w.c.
There is however, planning permission under reference WD/2012/1577/F which allows for its demolition, together with the outbuildings and replacement with a six bedroom house with annexe and garaging/ outbuilding.
There are mature south west facing gardens, with a fine selection of trees and shrubs. Beyond the garden are two paddocks with hay store and brick stable.
Heading towards Rye, in the small tucked away hamlet of Three Oaks is Three Oaks House.
Situated down a little used country lane, this detached chalet style house has been a much loved family home, but the time has now come for the owner to find something more manageable.
Three Oaks House has in the past been run as a smallholding/horticultural business.
The house provides three reception rooms, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside are numerous outbuildings including four large dilapidated glass-houses, paddocks, solar heated swimming pool and about 3.4 acres.
The guide prices are region £675,000 for Meadow Brae and £450-500,000 for Three Oaks House.
