The Heritage Collection comprises an exclusive range of two-bedroom apartments crafted within the north-west wing of the historic Grade II* listed building and is perfect for full-time country living or for use as a weekend retreat.

Built in 1901 and officially opened by King Edward VII in 1906, the estate sits in the heart of the South Downs National Park and remains an outstanding example of Edwardian architecture and design. Its buildings offer a wealth of features that celebrate layout, design and decoration by celebrated architects Charles Holden and Percy Adams.

Internally, the apartments have been designed to capitalise on natural light, with feature windows that maximise beautiful views of the courtyard and wider estate gardens. A palette of muted tones and natural materials have helped to create a sense of understated style and luxury. The collection also includes several properties which feature unique original spaces, ideal for use as a home office or study. These spaces, when combined with fibre optic broadband, are ideal for those working from home.

New residents will benefit from access to the estate’s extensive amenities and facilities, which include a concierge, spa-style swimming pool and gym, as well as the unique communal rooms in the sanatorium building including the former Ladies’ Reading Room and Dining Hall, which provide elegant spaces for relaxing, socialising or working. The nationally significant Gertrude Jekyll-designed grounds have been reinstated, as much as possible to her original plans, and the beautiful gardens have now fully matured, offering acres of idyllic outside space to residents and their visitors.

Apartments within The Heritage Collection are priced from £450,000 – take a look through the then and now photos below, as well as some interior shots of the properties...
