Flat 7 The Hoo is a well-arranged, 2/3 bedroom, 1/2 reception room, second floor apartment forming part of this magnificent Grade I listed village house. There is understood to have been a house of Georgian origin on the site, which was extensively remodelled and enlarged having been designed by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. The Hoo features in a book titled 'Houses and Gardens by Lutyens'.

The drawing room is an elegant room with an attractive open fireplace with an ornate oak surround, built-in book shelving and a door leading out to a small balcony, from which there is a lovely outlook over the communal garden and scenic Downland beyond. The kitchen has an oak floor and is fitted with an attractive range of cream units with solid oak work surfaces and includes an integrated dishwasher and a steel-fronted oven. The dining room/bedroom 3 is again a generous room, and two further bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom complete the accommodation.

Flat 7 The Hoo is situated close to the St Mary's Church, in the centre of the picturesque village of Willingdon, which is flanked by scenic Downland countryside. The village includes a public house, a post office, Thai Village restaurant and there is an M&S Simply Food store about 0.3 mile away.

Eastbourne town centre is about 2.5 miles distant providing a train station with services to London Victoria, Brighton and Ashford International, together with an excellent range of shopping, recreational and entertainment facilities. There is an alternative station at Polegate, about 1.8 miles distant, with services to London Victoria. Lewes and Brighton are about 13 and 21 miles away respectively.

The communal gardens at The Hoo are a particular feature of the property and lie on the southern side of the house. The gardens are understood to be in the design of Gertrude Jekyll who worked extensively with Lutyens. The gardens are enclosed by lovely old flint and brick walls and have been beautifully planted and landscaped over the years with numerous well stocked borders. There is a large lawn with two flint and tile pavillions, beyond which two wide stone paved flights of steps lead down to a lower garden with a pretty ornamental pond and wide gravel path. To the far end of the path there is a kitchen garden area and a gate gives access to the property's single garage which is approached from Hoo Gardens.
