About this property

  • The Toft is a delightful and unique property, for 50 years the home of the internationally known playwright Christopher Fry. Situated in the peaceful and much sought after village of East Dean, it lies in the heart of the South Downs National Park and is close to the Goodwood Estate. From a vantage point, the property enjoys wonderful views of the surrounding countryside yet is itself sheltered from general view by trees and hedgerows.
    Upon entering the property, a hallway leads to a sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors on to the rear garden, with an adjacent kitchen. To the other side of the hallway is an elegant dining room with views over the garden from a large bay window. There is a further room off the sitting room which could be used as a bedroom as it has an en suite bathroom, or alternatively an extra reception room. The ground floor accommodation also includes a study, shower room and a useful store room.

    On the first floor are three double bedrooms, all enjoying spectacular views over both the village of East Dean and the downland behind it. There is also a family bathroom and ample eaves storage.
    Externally, the grounds and gardens of The Toft are delightful and have been very well stocked and maintained. Features include a rotating summer house, pond and a verandah with views over the garden. A driveway leads to an area of parking with a detached double garage.
