Wine-lovers, assemble. Your dream home is on the market.
A modern farmhouse in Ewhurst Green, East Sussex, is up for sale for £2million.
Sure, the house itself is nice, but it’s what’s in the garden that makes this property opportunity so exciting: a six-acre vineyard, packed with pinot noir, pinot meunier, and chardonnay varieties.
That means that right outside your door sit enough grapes to produce around 16,000 bottles of wine a year.
At the moment the grapes are managed on a contract, but it would be possible for the new owner to set up their own wine business and brand at the vineyard.
Or you could just keep the booze for yourself and become everyone’s favourite dinner party host.
Along with the vineyard, the property includes a four-bedroom house, a barn (which could be converted into a winery or used as additional accommodation), outbuildings, and 22 acres of land.
It’s all surrounded by lush countryside, so the views from the home are spectacular.
And if you want even more space, there is a further 12.7 acres of south facing banks that could be used to expand the vineyard.
The farmhouse itself was built in the 1980s and has since received a more modern renovation.
Inside is 4,835 sq ft of space, spread over three floors.
There’s a large kitchen and dining room, a drawing room, a study, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and even a games room.
Outside, there are landscaped gardens to wander around, complete with a lovely pond, and fenced grass paddocks for livestock, horses, or chickens.
So you could escape to the country to make your own wine and raise animals. Dreamy, right?
Alex Cornwallis, from BTF Partnership which is handling the sale, said: ‘There are a variety of opportunities here to expand the existing vineyard operation, run an equestrian yard as has been done before or even to continue as it is currently using the grapes as a cash crop.
‘There is the possibility of creating a brand and business with the vineyard already established in what is a fantastic and tranquil setting of the Sussex countryside.
‘The house is large and modern, and the buildings are primed and ready for an alternative use.
‘This really is a unique property, which simply rarely find their way to the market.’
