About this property

  • Believed to date from the late 1890s, Hollingbury Lodge was the former lodge house for Hollingbury Court – a country house which was converted into a number of private properties in the early 1980s. This attractive period house has stone, part timbered elevations with steep gables typical of Victorian architecture, and internally offers spacious and neutrally decorated accommodation extending to nearly 1,400 square feet with points of note including some replacement double glazing with lead panes, a number of both working and feature fireplaces, some exposed wood floors, modern bathroom suites and a striking staircase with bespoke iron balustrade. The floor plan gives a comprehensive overview of the full extent and layout of the house.

    Outside, there is a private, part-walled courtyard to the west of the house offering a spacious outdoor seating area; the remainder of the garden extends away from the house to the south east, partially laid to lawn and part wooded. The property benefits from a right of way over the main driveway to Hollingbury Court, which provides ample parking. In all, about 0.31 of an acre.

    The part-walled plot lies across the driveway to the west, about 0.06 of an acre.
