The Barn Complex
Situated to the north of the house is a substantial single storey barn extending to 4,109 square feet. This comprises an annexe with kitchen/living room, bedroom, shower room. Further selection of rooms including large workshops, studio, storerooms and games room.
Planning Note: Informal advice has been sought from Rother District Council in regard to the replacement of Shortridge Farm and the barn with a two-storey detached dwelling. The response to this is: Due to being a replacement dwelling this would comply with RA3 of the Core Strategy and would be acceptable in principle.
Shortridge Farm is approached and set back from the lane down a shared driveway and then onto its own private driveway where there are several areas of hardstanding for the parking and turning of vehicles. Adjacent to the house is an open-fronted garage with three storerooms.
The grounds are principally laid to grass and have wonderful southerly views.
Gardens and grounds - in all about 1.2 acres.
