    About this property

    • Leydene House was originally built in 1914 for the local MP Lord Peel and his wife, whose seat it remained until 1941, when it was taken over by the Royal Navy to later become an important communications training base until 1994. A substantial, imposing house located almost on the ridge of the Downs, this fabulous property enjoys some spectacular views across the valley beneath. The property was converted into a number of important wings arranged off a magnificent domed and galleried hall with a central feature ‘helix' staircase.

      No.8 has been superbly presented and the property boasts well-proportioned reception rooms that are ideal for entertaining and everyday living. The drawing room has fabulous ceiling heights and detailing providing an impressive feel, this is carried through into all the principal reception areas. The kitchen/breakfast/dining room is a spectacular living space and opens on to a substantial and private south facing terrace with its own balustrade, beyond which lies the formal knot garden. This property enjoys the finest views from its terrace. There are three principal bedroom suites, two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The overall feel of this impressive property is one of great proportions and a quite spectacular location.

      Outside the property there are communal grounds surrounding No. 8 Leydene Park and these have been divided into a number of principal areas, including the formal knot garden which provides a wonderful backdrop from the private terrace. There is a large level lawn section for outdoor recreation, with an additional large general purpose field and to the fr ont of the property there is the front lawn section with pond and woodland, beyond which lie the tennis courts providing further recreational facilities.
