Manor Road, East Grinstead, West Sussex RH19 1LR

Manor House is an individually traditionally built, carefully designed and well-appointed family home in a mature setting, in the heart of East Grinstead.

Down the high street, timber-beamed buildings dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries nestle amongst those built in Georgian and Regency times. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, the town is less than a ten minute drive away from Kingscote Valley, Weir Wood reservoir and the national trust site at Standen. Alternately, you can ride through this beautiful part of England on the Bluebell steam railway, the stations of which have been built in the traditional Queen Anne style and have featured on television and in films, including Downton Abbey, Muppets Most Wanted Movie and Churchill’s Secret. East Grinstead’s road and rail links connect it easily with London, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Brighton. In the heart of the town and approximately a mile away from the train station and the historic high street and its contemporary amenities, Manor House is ideal for growing families, first time buyers, commuters and those working from home.

Vesta Close map
In East Grinstead itself, there is plenty to be occupied with. Alongside the usual amenities you would expect from a town this size, a wander through the high street is taking a walk through English history. Visit Sackville House, a beautiful Landmark trust property built around 1520. Enter the yard to escape the bustle of 21st Century life to enjoy the tranquillity of the large peaceful garden through the yard.

Framed by extensive courtyards, the small passageways leading off the high street meander past old coaching inns and pubs with beer gardens. East Grinstead is a far cry from the cloned high street of many towns which are choked by modern malls and large chain shops. Here small independent retailers display their wares from within the walls of the Tudor-beamed buildings, allowing you to step back in time with every visit to town.

Alternately, you can while away a lazy Sunday exploring the house and grounds at nearby Hammerwood Park, located less than 4 miles from Manor House. Built and designed in 1792 by Benjamin Henry Latrobe, architect of the White House and US Capitol Building in Washington, the residence was owned for a while by rock band Led Zeppelin. Housing a collection of musical instruments, Hammerwood remains one of Britain’s best-kept secrets: an architectural gem, a family home and a venue for concerts and filming.
