    About this property

    • History
      Completed in 1901, Slaugham Manor was designed in the Jacobean Revival style by Arts & Crafts architect Walter Ernest Tower. Originally built as a private home, it was later converted to a hotel and then spent some 40 years as a training and conference centre for Sussex Police.

      The building was converted into just nine generously-proportioned and individually designed apartments in 2020. During the conversion great care was taken to retain and replicate the original architectural features of the house to enhance the building's stately character, examples being the distinctive battlement rainwater hoppers to the striking Elizabethan-style chimney stacks, restored mullioned windows, a magnificent hallway and staircase, and imposing stone lions which keep watch over the front entrance.

      About the property
      The Manor's main front door opens to a communal reception hall, which has private boot rooms for all the apartments. A handsome turned staircase and a lift allow access to the upper floors.

      Apartment 5 is on the first floor and extends to 1,067 square feet. Of particular note is the generous and stylishly presented open plan sitting room and kitchen, which has plenty of space for both sofas and a dining table. The kitchen has a wooden floor and is fitted with a good range of cream shaker-style units, granite worksurfaces, and integrated appliances.

      There are two bedrooms: the large main bedroom benefitting from mirror-fronted fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, and bedroom two having an en suite shower room. There is a separate cloakroom with WC.

      Slaugham Manor is situated at the end of a long private driveway, surrounded by manicured communal grounds. Each apartment comes with two allocated parking spaces, with additional shared visitor parking.
