Description A rare opportunity to acquire an attractive, light apartment in Southover Place a substantial country house converted from a former seminary with accommodation comprising sitting / dining room, kitchen, and two bedrooms both of which have ensuite bathrooms.

Situation Glyndebourne is desirably located in a rural setting on the outskirts of the popular village of Burwash and enjoys delightful views over the formal gardens of Southover Place towards open countryside. At the same time the property is within only a few minutes drive of the picturesque village high street which offers a good range of shopping facilities providing for day to day needs as well as a primary school, doctors surgery, churches and several period inns. The spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells and the coast at Hastings are both approximately 15 miles, with Etchingham and Stonegate mainline railway stations each within only a few minutes drive and both providing excellent service of trains to London Bridge/Charing Cross and Cannon Street in just over the hour.

Outside Southover Place was originally built around 1887 as a seminary for the Selesian Order of Monks and was converted into 15 elegant apartments during the 1980s. The property offers superb communal facilities including swimming pool, fitness room, sauna, tennis courts and approximately 2 acres of grounds. The property is therefore considered ideal for the active retired, those wishing to cut out gardening and maintenance of properties or those requiring a weekend retreat in the grand manner offering a quiet way of life in the countryside. It is specifically for this reason that children under the age of 12 are not allowed to reside on the premises although they may visit and use the amenities.
