Believed to date from the 1800s, Darp Farm has recently been the subject of extension and extensive refurbishment and modernisation, resulting in a superbly-appointed home, well adapted for family life and entertaining alike.
The property also benefits from a large leisure complex with heated swimming pool, gym and a 2 bedroom self-contained flat over, and is situated in a wonderful rural location on the outskirts of the village of Ripe, with panoramic views of the South Downs.
Points of note include oak joinery throughout, inglenook-style brick fireplaces, oak-framed double glazing, Villeroy & Boch bathroom suites and a bespoke kitchen with maple units.
The accommodation in the main house is arranged over two floors, briefly comprising, entrance and inner halls, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, family room, study, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, library area/snug, master bedroom suite with 2 dressing areas and en suite bathroom, guest bedroom suite, 2 further bedrooms (1 en suite) and a family bathroom.
Outside there is garaging, a detached barn, landscaped gardens, paddocks and a sand school; in all, about 7.6 acres.
