Neaves Farmhouse is a charming, three-bay hall house which is understood to date from the 16th Century, with a later circa 1850 addition. The house presents attractive mellow sandstone, brick, tile hung, timbered and infilled elevations under a pitched tile roof. Internally, the house has a wealth of period features and includes a bright double aspect sitting room with a wood burning stove, a spacious double aspect dining room with a magnificent inglenook fireplace and a lovely kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating and ample space for a breakfast table. Also located on the ground floor is a study/bedroom 4 with shower, utility room and cloakroom.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Features within the house include a wealth of exposed honey coloured timbers, traditional wooden doors and leaded-light windows throughout.
Neaves Farmhouse is approached via a wooden five-bar gate which leads to an extensive gravel drive bound on one side by the house and on the otherby the three-bay Heritage style garage. To the rear of the garage there is an area of woodland underplanted with a carpet of bluebells. To the front of the house there are two lawns bound in part by a lovely old sandstone wall. The principal garden lies to the south and south-east of the house. Immediately adjacent to the house is a wide paved seating area from which there is a lovely outlook over the beautifully landscaped garden which includes a feature well, ornamental pond with waterfall and various well stocked borders. To the rear of the house there is a further brick paved seating area, adjacent to which is the detached brick and tile outbuilding. From the far end of the garden there is a lovely view over the adjoining countryside towards Ashdown Forest.
