By: Sands Property Search & Relocation Agents
June 25, 2010 - PRLog -- The Warren is a handsome, and highly unusual, country house between Maresfield and Buxted in East Sussex. Built by local master builder Stanley Durrant on the site of a sandstone quarry in 1939, the house was almost immediately requisitioned by the MoD and the large, flat roof was reinforced to support an anti-aircraft gun for the duration of WWII.

Inside, the property has lots of character including exposed oak joinery, metal casement windows and stone flagging. Accommodation is arranged over three floors, including a double aspect drawing room with wooden floor and stone fireplace, and French doors opening out to the garden, plus a double aspect study with wooden flooring and built-in bookshelves.

The family room also has a wonderful fireplace with an inset woodburner while the four bedrooms upstairs are well-proportioned and light.

Accommodation comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, family room, study, garden room, kitchen, conservatory, master bedroom and three further bedrooms plus family bathrooms

Outside the gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property: immediately to the rear of the house is a paved terrace with steps down to the swimming pool and the ornamental pond. There are three pathways from the top of the drive offering various ways to explore. To the front is a beautiful area of sunken garden, the floor of the original quarry.This area is mainly laid to lawn with a number of trees (one of which houses a fun tree house) and exposed rock faces. Within the sunken garden sits the recording studio.

A small secret garden is also accessible from the driveway and is filed with wild roses, a bridged pond and a love seat beneath a magnolia tree. The remainder of the grounds are wooded with an abundance of native trees; the total plot comes to around 3.7 acres.

The Warren is situated on the outskirts of the market town of Uckfield (which has a mainline rail station) and equidistant between Maresfield and Buxted. There are good local schools and amenities in the nearby villages and towns.

The guide price is £1.25million
