A unique opportunity to acquire this outstanding Grade II Listed house with stunning views over the the South Downs. This important Grade II Listed Sussex house has an interesting history with various castles and houses having stood on the site since the 13th century. The Henderson family transformed the neglected house and garden in the late 19th century into what is seen today. Still privately owned, the current proprietors have also made their mark, with extensive renovation and redecorating. The West Wing remains an exciting project for the next owner. The house is arranged over three floors and exudes Edwardian...elegance and grace with refined formal south-facing reception rooms on the ground floor and 15 bedrooms on the upper floors. The house has been used occasionally for weddings, open days for the local community and also as a residential wellness centre at weekends, and would lend itself very well to a boutique hotel, retreat or similar, subject to the necessary planning permissions. The gardens and grounds at Sedgwick Park House are simply stunning and were the brainchild of the mistress of the house, Mrs Emma Henderson, who enlisted the help of Harold Peto, during the family’s tenure. Parkland, meadows and woodland surround the house, extending to approximately 27.5 acres. The formal gardens are worthy of special mention and include a south terrace, formal and informal lawns and a spectacular Italian-inspired garden featuring 20 interlinking ponds, an impressive ship themed water garden known a the White Sea. Within the grounds there is also a swimming pool and a turf labyrinth with superb views over the South Downs.
