Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive former hotel of period character with development/commercial potential set within substantial grounds adjacent to the downland village of Wilmington.

Crossways is Grade II and is situated within grounds approximately 1.5 acres. The property has planning permission for new access from Thornwell Road and could afford development or conversion opportunity subject to necessary consent. Planning permission has been granted previously (now lapsed) for 14 units as auxiliary accommodation to the hotel. We are informed by the seller that the co-operation of adjoining property and land may also be forthcoming should this be of interest to a potential purchaser.

Crossways is situated within close proximity of the downland village of Wilmington. The A27 provides easy access to Eastbourne to the east as well as the County town of Lewes to the west. Mainline rail services to Gatwick and London Victoria can be found at nearby Berwick and Polegate. The South Down National Park offers wonderful recreational opportunities including Friston Forest and the Cuckmere Haven.
