This very attractive detached Grade II listed home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three reception rooms. It is in the village of Northiam which lies in the High Weald on the Kent-Sussex border adjacent to the Domesday village of Newenden. At the time of Domesday in the late 11th Century the area was owned by the then Archbishop of Canterbury before passing into the ownership of Battle Abbey. During the 16th century the puritan John Frewen made Northiam his home when he became rector of the parish in 1589. His son Accepted Frewen went on to become canon of Canterbury Cathedral and the Archbishop of York. The Frewen family still reside in Northiam.

Northiam is well provisioned with small businesses and services including doctors, dentists, vets, optician, primary & nursery schools, two general stores. Sitting in gardens and grounds of approximately one acre the property also enjoys a paddock of five acres and various outbuildings; along with planning permission for a separate three bedroom detached house.
