A superb opportunity has arisen to purchase East Lodge and The Duckery - two adjacent properties set in around four private acres (TBV).

East Lodge, a substantial family home, is laid out over three floors and comprises entrance hall, cloakroom/wc, double aspect drawing room with large stone fireplace, sitting room, kitchen with dining area, utility room, master bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, five further bedrooms and two en-suite shower rooms, plus a family bathroom.

The Duckery, a modernised and very spacious annexe, has been adapted to be mobility friendly. This offers entrance hall, dining kitchen, living room, conservatory, ground floor bedroom and wet room, first floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom, plus additional bedroom.

The properties are conveniently situated within close proximity to each other, sited in attractive grounds that incorporate extensive lawns, formal gardens with a large Indian stone patio, a pretty and well stocked fishing lake and grass walkways with raised seating area.

The driveway, approached via electric gates with intercom, leads to a turning area providing ample parking. This leads on to a block of four timber garages with power and lighting.

This mini estate is located in Glyndley Road, Hankham, a small and attractive rural hamlet located between Hailsham and Eastbourne, only a short drive from the mainline railway station at Polegate.

Dating back to Victorian times, east and west lodges were built as gate lodges within the parkland of Glyndley Manor, East Lodge has since been extended to the become the large house that you see today.

The property is offered for sale at £1,295,000. For an appointment to view contact Taylor Engley on 01323 440000 or visit www.taylorengley.co.uk. EPC = D & D
