6 Bedroom, House | Compton Place Road, Eastbourne

One of Eastbourne’s finest and most important houses – a truly magnificent 6 bedroom Edwardian style residence of immense character and charm.

Compton House is believed to date from circa 1910, having been designed by one of Eastbourne’s most eminent architects of the era and affords an abundance of delightful Arts and Crafts period character throughout. The exceptionally spacious and elegant accommodation is arranged over two floors with features including a most impressive barrel-vaulted reception hall, a magnificent oak panelled drawing room with fine inglenook fireplace, a large dining room overlooking the rear garden and a remarkably spacious kitchen/breakfast room. The bright and spacious first floor accommodation is approached by a grand staircase and a large galleried landing and includes a master bedroom suite, five further bedrooms and two additional bath/shower rooms. There are fine views over the adjacent Gildredge Park and towards the South Downs. There is the added benefit of a side entrance to the property with a second staircase providing access to what was originally the chauffeur’s accommodation comprising 3 of the bedrooms, kitchenette and shower room affording potential to accommodate teenage or dependent relatives. The present owners have successfully operated a holiday letting program in this section of the house. There are beautifully landscaped gardens arranged at the front and rear of the property with the rear garden extending to a depth of approximately 100’ and by a similar width. They are principally laid to lawn for ease of maintenance with deep borders stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and trees which combine to provide a good degree of privacy. A wide flag stone terrace flanks the rear elevation and secures views over the park beyond, to which there is a gate at the end of the garden. The front garden features a sweeping carriage driveway which provides extensive parking space and is further complimented by a delightful and secluded seating area bordered by an attractive rockery. The driveway continues along the side of the house providing access to the large detached 4 car garage with studio above which might be used as a home office.
