Little Bucksteep dates from the late 1600s, though it was remodelled in 1717 in an early Georgian style, offering a gorgeous blend of historic styles across its aged interiors. The house itself is built from Ashburnham brick with a solid timber frame – beams and columns of which can be seen inside.
Rooms extend over 6,300 sq ft, with a treasure trove of period features packed into the interior, starting with the winding wooden staircase in the hallway, and a large open-hearth fireplace in the living room. Linenfold panelling, wooden lintels and leaded casements are also present, adding to the rich texture of materials in the country property where there are discoveries in every room.

The nearest village is Dallington, which sits within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. And while Little Bucksteep is far from the hustle of city life, there’s plenty to discover nearby including a twice-weekly farmers market, independent local stores and a smattering of auction houses for antiques lovers.
