A beautifully refurbished and spacious family house of great character with 2 annexe units currently generating a substantial income and set within the scenic Cuckmere Valley.

Forming the Arts and Crafts wing of the attached Grade II listed period manor house and commanding fine views over the valley to the South Downs the remarkably generous accommodation has been tastefully refurbished. There is scope for the accommodation of elderly relatives or for the commercial letting of the 2 annexe units, both of which generate a substantial income. The property forms the 1920's Arts and Crafts style southerly wing of Frog Firle Manor which is listed Grade II and believed to possibly date back to the 1600's. Only an inspection of the property will convey its exceptionally high appeal. Offered with early vacant possession if required.<br /><br />Frog Firle House is enviably located just to the south of the picturesque village of Alfriston and is surrounded by the scenic countryside of the South Downs National Park which offers wonderful recrecational opportunity with direct access from the property. Alfriston affords a wide range of amenities and the major coastal town of Eastbourne is also within easy reach. Rail services to London Victoria and to Gatwick are available from nearby Berwick Station and from Eastbourne. There are 3 principal golf courses as well as one of the largest sailing marinas on the south coast at Eastbourne. Opera is at nearby Glyndebourne and channel ferries are from Newhaven.
