Set within almost 3 acres amidst scenic Sussex countryside - a detached country house which is the result of a tasteful conversion of a period barn.

Believed by our client to have been in the ownership of Wilmington Priory the building retains intriguing period detail with flint faced elevations and oak joinery. The accommodation has attractive modern styling with large open plan living areas on the ground floor which secure delightful countryside views. We understand the property has the advantage of not being listed and is of a much sought after type of property so rarely available.<br /><br />Monken Pyn Barn is enviably situated within picturesque Sussex countryside. About 8 miles from Eastbourne and a similar distance from Lewes the property is approached by a little used country lane and is surrounded by farmland. Eastbourne and Lewes afford the principal shopping centres. There are more local shops at Alfriston. There are rail services to London Victoria and to Gatwick from Berwick Station or Polegate. Sporting facilities in the area include several golf courses at Eastbourne as well as one of the largest sailing marinas on the south coast. The nearby scenic downland of the South Downs National Park is easily accessible just to the south. There is world class opera at nearby Glyndebourne and channel ferries are from Newhaven.
