6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Little London, Heathfield

6 3

An impressive and substantial family home set in the hamlet of Little London near Heathfield & Horam. Offering gardens and grounds of nearly two acres and internal accommodation of over 4500sq.ft this house must be viewed to appreciate its suitability for a growing and potentially multi generational family.

We are pleased to offer to the market 'Old Cannon House' at Little London; a reminder of the importance of the iron industry - and the manufacturing of weaponry - to this area of the Sussex Weald. Unfortunately 'The Cannon House' as it was formerly known was gutted by fire in the 1940's but then sympathetically rebuilt into the home you see today with various extensions added in more recent years.

The hamlet of Little London is situated on the A267 about 1.25 miles south of Cross In hand/Heathfield and about 1.5 miles North of Horam, within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Horam is a quaint little village offering a good range of shops, a public house, petrol station, bowling green, tennis courts and a primary school (in the adjacent hamlet of Maynards Green).

Old Cannon House is an expansive family house suitable for the ever evolving family, with over 4500sq.ft of accomodation arranged over two floors. In brief the ground floor comprises of a substantial Kitchen/Breakfast/Utility Room (fully redecorated over the past two years) with adjoining Living Room opening out onto the rear garden; a formal Dining Room and Sitting Room with fireplace and log burner; a stunning split level reception area which has been an ideal games room but could equally be utilised as a self contained annexe if you incorporated the adjacent ground floor bedroom. Due to the nature of the property the current owners access the house from the rear by way of a lovely garden room which overlooks the stunning rear lawn.

The first floor benefits from Five Double Bedrooms; the principal master suite boasts a plethora of exposed beams within the vaulted ceiling, has a decent dressing/lounge area in addition to the new en-suite wet room. Three further bedrooms follow, all overlooking the rear garden, with the final bedroom being a fantastic guest suite. There are two further bathrooms available from the landing both with baths and one with an additional shower cubicle. A great feature of the first floor is the south facing balcony which every bedroom has direct access on to; the ability to enjoy a morning coffee overlooking your own land surrounded by woodland and perhaps on a clear day views of the South Downs beyond.

Externally i have already mentioned the large rear garden and swimming pool. Additionally you will find a variety of interesting outbuildings including a luxury octagonal summer house, three sheds and a greenhouse. There are two natural ponds as well as a Koi pond. As it is the garden is predominantly laid to lawn following the rear terraces and in the summer months has been an absolute haven for children and adults alike. It is worth noting that there is separate access from the lane to the rear of the garden which could pave the way for development opportunity or the creation of a pony paddock depending on your needs.

Locally, Cross In Hand provides some specialist shops, bakers, garage with store, public house, primary school and doctors surgery. It is also the base for Heathfield Tennis Club, Rugby Club & Isenhurst Gymnasium. The market town of Heathfield offers a comprehensive range of shops, two supermarkets, banks, library, primary school, secondary school and a leisure centre with swimming pool.
The nearest rail stations are at Buxted (about 5.5 miles) with services to London Bridge and Victoria or at Stonegate (about 8 miles) for services to Cannon Street and Charing Cross. Tunbridge Wells is about 15 miles to the north with the coastal town of Eastbourne about 14 miles to the south. The County Town of Lewes is about 15 miles and Brighton about 26 miles away.
The area is well served by a variety of state and private schools and there are a number of golf courses and other leisure facilities in the vicinity whether its riding in the Ashdown Forest, sailing at Bewl Water or taking in an Opera at Glyndebourne.
