Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
This stunning timber barn conversion dates back to the 17th century and forms part of the Great Thorndean Farm estate, now separated into separate dwellings and situated down a private shared driveway a short distance from the village of Cuckfield. The views look out over the surrounding Wealden farmland, woodland and pastures, which is part of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Grade II*-listed barn was skillfully converted in 2020 and marries period features, such as exposed beams and weather-boarded elevations, with modern comforts including a stunning contemporary kitchen, underfloor heating throughout and premium bath and shower rooms. The substantial accommodation extends to 3800 sq ft across two floors, with the highlight being the 60ft reception room at the heart of the property which provides an ideal space for entertaining.

On the ground floor, the home is entered onto the great room, which has space for both dining and sitting areas and two oak staircases leading up to a mezzanine study and a bedroom with en suite shower room. This generous space leads to a fabulous 42ft kitchen/dining room, a utility room and cloakroom. In addition to the first-floor bedroom, there are two further accommodation wings on the ground floor including two double bedrooms with a jack and jill bathroom and two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Agents note: Please ask Hamptons for the Title plan and register.


The property is situated off Slough Green Lane and accessed via a private driveway shared by the other properties on the Great Thorndean Farm estate. To the front of the barn there is a generous gravel driveway with off-street parking for several vehicles. Surrounding the property are grounds of about 8 acres including gardens, paddocks and hardstanding, which offers excellent scope for further landscaping.
