White Magpies is a charming small Country Estate, nestled away in a very quiet corner of the East Sussex and Kent border within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are stunning views over its own land and beyond, with a four bedroom main house, a double garage with a self-contained annex above, a separate office/studio building, outbuildings and stores, plus a detached one bedroom cottage, all set within just over ten acres of gardens and grounds, including a formal, wall enclosed garden, park-like open gardens with ponds, woodland and paddocks beyond.
White Magpie forms a charming, characterful and beautiful main house, with eye-brow roof line, exposed timbers and both beehive and inglenook fireplaces, leaded light windows to a number of rooms and fabulous views from the conservatory. You have a substantial, detached double garage with a self-contained annex above and ample parking on a brick block circular drive in front. Behind both the main house and garage is a walled formal garden, with open panels from which to enjoy the views, a former swimming pool, now forming an ornamental fish pond, and an attractive studio/office building beyond. This studio is then attached to car-ports, workshops, a tractor shed and storage outbuilding. Beyond these outbuildings and stores is a detached one bedroom cottage, which has planning permission for a holiday let, or could form useful extra living space, again enjoying the views and private access.
The Garage and Annex was built by previous owners and matches the style of the main house, forming a large open double garage, with sliding front doors and a window to side. There is ample space for the fitted workbench and cupboards at the back. Above the garage is a self-contained annex.
The Studio is on the opposite side of the walled garden, and has a characterful look about it, with weather boarding and leaded light windows. There is a good sized outer office, with windows overlooking the walled garden and an angled wall to one side. There is obvious potential to convert this into further accommodation, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents. It could also form a wonderful gymnasium, if that were more suitable.
This lovely home is found on the very rural fringes of Lamberhurst, along a single track, quiet country lane.
