Star property over £500,000

This country house is not one you will forget in a hurry, with glorious design and 32 acres of grounds to enjoy.

Eastwood Farm began life as a late Victorian farmhouse but has since been transformed into an Anglo-Baroque neoclassical home by renowned architect Robert Adam of Adam Architecture.

The property is for sale with a guide price of £1,900,000 and is marketed by Batcheller Monkhouse, Battle at OnTheMarket.

Adam completed his renovation project on the house in 1997. The property is situated near the village of Herstmonceux in East Sussex.

Features include a Corinthian colonnaded entrance, square domed topped turrets and a clock tower.

As you enter the house, there is a double height reception hall with columns supporting the galleried landing, decorative cornicing, a fireplace with marble and wooden surround and gold leaf, plus a stone flagged floor.

The luxury continues throughout the dining room, library, inner hall, study, sitting room, music room and kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor.

The first floor is approached by three staircases, including one rising to the wonderful galleried landing.

The house has eight bedrooms, including a principal suite with a private landing, wardrobe cupboards and secondary staircase.
