    Outside:

    The formal gardens are certainly a feature of this ‘property’ having been designed and landscaped by a Chelsea Garden Gold Winner, and therefore are one of the things that contribute to making Luckhurst Place the special property that it is.
    Imaginatively designed, creating separate and various areas, each with different aspects and views of the beautiful surroundings and backing onto the immaculate lawns behind. There are endless places for seating and entertaining and the gardens are forever changing with the continuous wealth of colour in the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter months.
    A track from the driveway leads you to the paddocks, (which are to remain for agricultural or horticultural use) accessed via a five-bar gate. At the rear of the plot there are two large paddocks and hay store/animal shelter. The paddocks are currently used as grazing land and have secure, post and rail fencing. Beyond the paddocks the boundary meets Wadhurst Park, renowned for its conservation efforts. Luckhurst Place also benefits from no public rights of way, ensuring utmost privacy within its plot.
