Kb-eye property – formerly home to writer Roger Hargeaves, this estate is steeped in history 

Formerly the home of famous actor Sir John Mills, shortly after the Second World War, and later owned by writer of the Mr Men and Little Miss books, Roger Hargeaves, the Sussex House Farm boasts a rich history.

Crafted of several different sectors, the original two and a half storey timber-framed house, which the entire estate orbits, dates back to 1580. While the more recently built Grade II listed estate is also comprised of a converted timber barn, a trio of cottages, an extensive equestrian area and several farm buildings, and sits among beautiful rolling countryside on the Kent/Sussex border. Owners can also enjoy the garden’s capacious pool, tennis court and adjoining farmland, which totals to around 203 acres.

The owners have successfully refurbished the property over the past 15 years and crafted an interior scheme which employs elegant contemporary designs while still paying homage to the home’s history. The kitchen, in particular, exudes a warm, welcoming vibe, with a capacious central island that provides plentiful space for food preparation and space for casual dining, alongside a bank of modern appliances and sleek matt grey cabinetry that cleverly offsets the honey-toned wood of the ceiling beams.
