Stylish first floor apartment in a converted country manor.
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.
