7 Bedroom, House | Whiteway, Alfriston

A beautifully refurbished and spacious family house of great character with 2 annexe units currently generating a substantial income and set within the scenic Cuckmere Valley.

Forming the Arts and Crafts wing of the attached Grade II listed period manor house and commanding fine views over the valley to the South Downs the remarkably generous accommodation has been tastefully refurbished. There is scope for the accommodation of elderly relatives or for the commercial letting of the 2 annexe units, both of which generate a substantial income. The property forms the 1920's Arts and Crafts style southerly wing of Frog Firle Manor which is listed Grade II and believed to possibly date back to the 1600's. Only an inspection of the property will convey its exceptionally high appeal. Offered with early vacant possession if required.
