A rare opportunity to acquire five residential dwellings situated within the Ashdown Forest at Duddleswell. Originally forming part of the grounds of a larger estate the group of properties, now known as Crows Nest, have most recently been used for letting.

Accessed via a shared driveway the main building comprises four independent residential units over three floors. The first, known as ‘The Crowcote’, has undergone refurbishment work and now provides first floor living accommodation with ground floor entrance and bathroom. The remaining units within this block now require some modernisation and repair. Also in need of some refurbishment work is the fifth unit, which is separate to the main building, and known as ‘The Dovecote’.

Surrounded by established gardens and with direct access into Ashdown Forest the Crows Nest has an original stone pond, miniature maze and viewing platform/sun terrace, which is in need of repair. There is also a well room that is designed to take water from the well to irrigate the surrounding garden.

Once all refurbishment work has been carried out the site would be an ideal investment opportunity for holiday lets, AirBnB or longer term rentals.

It is also considered that the property holds great potential for future conversion to reduce the overall number of residential units to create a larger single residential dwelling with associated annexe, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

Duddleswell is located 4.5 miles west of Crowborough and 5.5 miles north of Uckfield and forms one of the many villages surrounded by the forest.
