Substantial and beautifully presented first floor apartment in an impressive country house.
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 of the apartments. Number 4 is situated on the first floor, accessed via a lift or by the handsome turned staircase rising to the upper floors.
Number 4 is one of the finest of the nine apartments, extending to 1,570 square feet and featuring a magnificent panelled open plan kitchen, dining and living room at its heart. The rooms lie off a spacious private entrance hall, with double utility cupboard and fully tiled cloakroom. Double doors open to the impressive dual aspect living room, which offers a versatile living and entertaining space, with beautiful panelled walls, ornamental plasterwork frieze and ceiling, and a carved stone open fireplace with tiled insert. Three sets of full-height, arched windows fitted with plantation blinds overlook the communal grounds and French doors open to a large, private rooftop terrace.
The kitchen is situated to one end of the room, fitted with a range of white shaker-style units, with granite worksurfaces, and wood-topped central island and integrated appliances.
There are two generous bedrooms, both with square bay windows and superbly appointed en suite bath or shower rooms; one of the bedrooms also benefits from fitted wardrobes and a separate built in closet.
Slaugham Manor is situated at the end of a long private driveway, surrounded by manicured communal grounds.
