Nethercote is an attractive, detached period house, built around the period of a Spanish Armada and originally a hall house which has been sympathetically enlarged, refurbished and updated. The elevations are brick with part black and white Tudor features beneath a tiled roof. The house has many historic features. It is highly versatile as the front and back look totally different. In places the original walls have been opened up (although keeping the beams) allowing filming from one room to the next. It is also possible to film the entrance hall from upstairs. The property can be accessed from all sides. There are four external doors on three sides of the property.
The kitchen is huge and has a vaulted ceiling and is flooded with natural light and has sky lights on three sides – ideal for filming (see here: http://levickjorgensen.com/portfolio/rustic-reclaimed-craftsman-kitchen/)
There is ample parking on the gravel drive for several cars. There are also no restrictions on the lane for vehicles. The local village hall, which is 3 minutes away, has lots of space for additional vehicles.
The garden forms a delightful feature with a paved terrace with pergola adjoining the house and overlooking a good expanse of level lawn. To one side is a heated swimming pool 6m x 5m with a water slide, here there is also a paved sitting out area with further pergola and a charming summer house. There is a small orchard with country views on the top lawn and a small copse at the other end of the property.
There is a separate annex, a potting shed an old dilapidated shed and s double garage, which is used as an art studio / workshop.
There are dramatic skies, incredible views and the house is within easy reach of the coast. The White Hart Inn in the village, which has a large car park, has views over rolling hills to the sea (made famous in Turner’s landscapes).
The nearest station is Battle or Robertsbridge, both of which are on the Hastings line. Journey time from Clapham is 1 1/2 hours.
