With period charm and character in spades, The Hall on The Green in Southwick offers a slice of history with not just one, but two blue plaque's! It is a beautiful Grade II* listed flint-stone building, built in two halves, namely the The Hall and The Nether Hall. The former is believed to be the original building, with the latter added at a later stage. The architecture would seem to support this theory, with The Hall having a more cottage-like feel whilst The Nether Hall's high ceilings and somewhat larger rooms have the atmosphere more of Regency period buildings. The blue plaques commemorate firstly the artist Douglas Stannus Gray, a well-known painter of portraits, figure subjects and landscapes, who lived at the house from 1939, remaining there throughout the latter part of his life. The second plaque pertains to novelist and travel writer SPB Mais.

In terms purely of accommodation, the Hall and Nether Hall offer eight bedrooms, five bathrooms and four reception rooms. However, there is huge scope to combine a number of the rooms together to create larger, more open-plan reception spaces, more suited to preferences of modern family living. Suffice to say, this lovely house offers all one could want in terms of making something your own, as well as the space in which to do this without compromise. There is here, a real opportunity to preserve the history of the building whilst also making it relevant to contemporary tastes.

At the front of the house the pretty front garden is bordered by wrought-iron railings and a gate which leads up to the attractive, portico'd front door


the rear garden is west aspect mainly lawned with low brick/flint walls with a matter of a couple of hundred yards is a garage which is included in the sale.
