Beautiful south facing non interrupted views of the valley encompass this first floor apartment, situated within this Grade II Manor House.
The beautiful Grade II Listed manor house was built as a country mansion known as South Park for John Bruce, a descendant of Robert the Bruce, in 1885. Designed by Adolphus Croft, architect for Gillow and Co the house was built in the Domestic Revival and Queen Anne style, half-timbered with ornamental red brick facings and carvings.
The main rooms are in the Renaissance or Adam style, including oak joinery, ornate plastered ceilings and stained glass windows. The 1885 directory entry states The residence has an interior which is admirably appointed, and no expense whatever has been spared' The second owner Arthur Croft (the architects brother) was a notable artist who specialized in painting mountain scenery in Britain and the Alps. He exhibited at the
Royal Academy from 1868.
In about 1930 South Park became a boarding school for girls, opened by Miss Mulliner and was named Wadhurst College. Its numbers grew and other large houses were acquired to house the girls. The Legat Ballet School joined it in the 1980s and the building remained a College until its closure in 2001.
Between 2001 and 2015 the buildings and the attached grounds sadly fell into disrepair, until Newcourt Residential Ltd purchased the site and began the extensive restoration project to bring the manor back to its former glory.
The Manor now houses 13 individual apartments, each having been restored back to the admirable
interior and exterior of 1885 providing luxurious accommodation, many with spectacular far reaching views.
