Montagu House forms the substantial portion of an important Arts & Crafts style Manor House which is believed to have been built in 1904 by Lord Montagu as a wedding gift for his daughter.
The impressive and spaciously proportioned accommodation retains much of its glorious period character with the principal reception rooms featuring oak timbered ceilings of good height, large windows admitting a generous amount of natural light and a luxuriously equipped kitchen/breakfast room. There are fine south westerly views over the scenic Cuckmere Valley to the downland horizon. The communal facilities in respect of the park like grounds and tennis courts create a unique and wonderful setting. Only an internal inspection will convey the high merit of this very special property.
Montagu House forms part of the intriguing development of this important Arts & Crafts style house which is set within communally maintained grounds extending to about two acres and adjacent to scenic downland countryside. Alfriston village centre is easily accessible and offers excellent local shopping facilities. The picturesque parish church and the ancient Tiger Inn with equally important period village houses combine to make Alfriston one of the loveliest of the downland villages. The surrounding downland protected by the South Down National Park provides outstanding recreational opportunity. There are rail services from nearby Berwick Station to Gatwick and London Victoria. The coastal town of Eastbourne offers a further range of amenities as does the county town of Lewes. There are channel ferries from Newhaven and world class opera nearby at Glyndebourne.
