Streele Farm is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the villages of Rotherfield and Mayfield in East Sussex, with wonderful views over the Weald. Located down a long private driveway, the south-facing farmhouse forms the centerpiece of the estate, with a spacious kitchen, dining and family room, two formal reception rooms and five en suite bedrooms off a part-galleried landing. A glazed double garage designed for top-end collectable cars, shower room and large first floor gym adjoin the house via a modern glass link.
The formal gardens are beautifully landscaped, with expanses of York stone terrace, ponds and water features, and areas of well-maintained lawn. A parterre garden with box hedging, rose beds and a central terrace creates a wonderful space for al fresco entertaining.
There are three further cottages including Streele Barn, a Grade II Listed thatched property with three bedrooms and a south-facing terrace; The Old Dairy, a single storey, timber framed thatched property with three bedrooms; and The Oast, a one bedroom self-contained cottage, which is currently used as the estate office. Streele Barn and The Old Dairy face onto an attractive courtyard and beyond this, partially screened by hedging, is a swimming pool, tennis court, games room and pool house, creating an excellent leisure complex.
The equestrian facilities include a stable yard with eight loose boxes and a feed room, outdoor school and a fully enclosed barn. There are two further barns suitable for hay and machinery storage or alternative uses, subject to necessary planning consents.
The farmland is predominantly well maintained pasture with parcels of deciduous woodland and shaws. The main block of woodland extends to more than 30 acres and there are several ponds and streams on the estate, offering the opportunity to create a small but interesting shoot.
Chris Spofforth, Savills farm agency team in the south east, says: “Streele Farm is an archetypical lifestyle farm, with cottages providing income potential, equestrian and leisure facilities. It’s in a very peaceful and secluded spot, surrounded by its own land in the beautiful Sussex countryside, yet still easily commutable to London.”
Streele Farm is being marketed by Savills for a guide price of £4,950,000.
