SITUATION: Willows is most favourably located lying off of this highly sought after country lane location. Although the property
enjoys this idyllic location with the comfort of neighbours nearby it is considered far from isolated being only approximately 1.2
miles distance from the pretty Sussex village of Broad Oak which in general provides a community hall, recreational park and
general shopping facilities for day to day needs in addition to a well regarded Primary School and Heathfield Community College
both being easily accessible to this property. The market town of Heathfield is approximately 5 minutes drive away. In general
the market town of Heathfield provides a range of shopping facilities some of an interesting independent nature with the backing of
supermarkets of a national network. The area is well served with schooling (both private and state) for all age groups. The Spa town
of Royal Tunbridge Wells with its excellent shopping, leisure and grammar schools is only approx 16 miles distance with the larger
coastal towns of both Brighton and Eastbourne being reached within approximately 35 minutes drive. A mainline station can be
found at the nearby village of Stonegate (approx 3.5 miles).
