Land With Holiday Home

Brightling Road, Robertsbridge TN32

£1,000,000

20 acres of beautiful land in an area of outstanding beauty with a cottage which is deemed for holiday use at present, existing equestrian buildings and the opportunity to extend an existing small vineyard on south facing slopes.  This area of Sussex is now designated as a UK Geographical Indication (GI) having protected wine producing status on a par with Burgundy and Champagne.  It is also designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  

Unique Property Company are bringing to the market a small country estate situated close to Robertsbridge in East Sussex.  The package of land comprises 20 acres of mixed land – some presented as open south facing fields formerly farmed, some as a vineyard, parts as woodland and large areas of potential garden attached to the cottage.  There is potential for the holiday cottage to be demolished and a new home built (subject to planning permission).  There are also two equestrian buildings on the land.  The land would need organic certification but has been tended as organic land for the past few years.  

The land is totally unspoilt and largely uncultivated with the exception of the area of vineyard which has been planted by the current owner using heritage vines unavailable elsewhere.  There is a real opportunity for the new owner to extend and cultivate this vineyard – a particularly inviting opportunity given the areas recent designation as a UK Geographic Indication (GI).  Significant wine growers are now investing into this area and there are some respected names from the wine industry represented.  

The holiday cottage has wonderful uninterrupted views across the entire estate and beyond to woodland.  Unusually there are no power lines or pylons interrupting the views.  Nor are there any signs of habitation visible from the land or the cottage.  The layout of the holiday cottage is simple with one large living spaces with integrated kitchen to one end, shower room and toilet on the ground floor.  Upstairs there’s a spacious bedroom with dormer windows and magnificent views.  Wooden beams and wooden floors give the cottage character.  There is gas fired central heating powered from propane gas and a wood burning stove in the living area.  The toilet is serviced by a septic tank.  

The property is completely private with no other habitation overlooking it and beautiful distant views to Sussex woodland and a quiet situation.  There is huge potential to develop parts of the site for glamping or similar temporary hospitality purposes.  The property is around three miles from Robertsbridge which has a train station with direct link to London Charing Cross and London Bridge and also to London Victoria.  Robertsbridge is a picturesque village with independent shops and a number of lovely country pubs.  Access to larger scale shopping and amenities are close by in Battle and Tunbridge Wells and even Hastings which is just 30 minutes away.
