This 350 acre estate dates back to the 1870’s when Sir Henry Peek commissioned a Tudor style mansion, which is now Grade II* Listed, to be built on the land. The estate later became a school and more recently was sold and sympathetically redeveloped for residential use. The estate enjoys an active and social community with summer barbeques and Christmas carol services. The purchasers will have access to the surrounding estate and beach, owned and managed by the residents.
Eastgrove is approached off the private drive and onto a parking area for two or three cars with access to the house and the integral double garage. A level area of lawn lies to the front of the house with a path leading to the main entrance.
To the south facing rear of the house lies a private sun terrace which enjoys sea views, ideal for ‘alfresco’ entertaining, accessed from the main reception rooms and surrounded by flowering beds with a variety of pretty shrubs and palms. The level landscaped garden is mainly laid to lawn and features paths to the woodland and side of the house, where a wood store, potting shed and workshop are found.
The current owners purchased the private woodland behind the house with a neighbouring property. The woodland covers approximately two acres and is surrounded by fencing. The woodland is on a separate title and the half share will be sold with the house.
The purchasers will have access to the surrounding estate which covers 350 acres, owned by several of the 104 freehold properties, and includes the private Charton Beach and many wonderful walks.
