An exciting property from any point of view, Old Place is a spacious and luxurious family house set within delightful gardens and offering generous accommodation infused with old world character and featuring an impressive inglenook fireplace and oak beams some of which have curious carvings.
Old Place was originally the farmhouse of one of several farms within the extensive Ratton Estate owned by Lord Willingdon who lived at Ratton Manor.
He carved a glittering political career which took him to India where he was the viceroy for some years.
It is also believed that it was at his insistence that the newly laid London to Eastbourne rail track should have a halt for his convenience on his land where Hampden Park is today. Only an inspection will convey the enormous appeal and true character of this exceptionally fine period house. Offers in the region of £695,000 are invited by the sole agents Rager & Roberts.
