Unique parkland development with spectacular views of the Weald


Wadhurst Place in East Sussex is a unique parkland development by Newcourt Residential set in stunning surrounds, with spectacular views of the Weald.

The development is in Mayfield Lane, about one mile from the village of Wadhurst, which has a mainline station with services to Charing Cross and Canon Street in about one hour.

The Grade II listed manor house, formerly known as South Park, is being fully restored back to its former glory while being sympathetically converted into a collection of desirable apartments and mews houses.

The manor house has a rich history and in the 1930s it became a boarding school for girls, called Wadhurst College. The Legat Ballet School joined it in the 1980s and the building remained a college until its closure in 2001.

The grounds extend to over 18 acres of parkland, and will accommodate 26 detached luxury family homes, built to be in keeping with the local Sussex architectural style and history, while providing all the amenities expected for modern day luxury living.

The thriving village of Wadhurst is popular with all ages and there are a range of leisure attractions nearby – in a nine mile radius there are eight golf courses, and Bewl Water, the largest stretch of open water in the south east offers a fantastic range of leisure and recreational activities.

A range of properties are available, from one or two bedroom apartments to five bedroom homes, with prices from £450,000 to £1,595,000.

Rupert Cochrane, Savills head of residential development sales in the South East, said: “Wadhurst Place is primarily attracting local downsizers, who want to have a good sized property with less land to manage, on a secure and private development, and families moving out of London, who are looking to benefit from the schools and all that the area has to offer, as well as being able to commute to London.”
