A Reverend’s Residence

Part vacant Grade II* listed Queen Anne former vicarage in East Sussex to be auctioned online (due to the coronavirus outbreak)

With social distancing becoming increasingly common due to coronavirus, sellers are resorting to different ways of marketing their properties. Whilst estate agents report that some vendors will not allow viewings by Chinese and Italian applicants, in the case of a Grade II* listed former vicarage in the heart of the Sussex market town of Hailsham, it will be sold at auction online later this month.

 

Built between 1701 and 1705 and adjacent to the parish church, Hailsham Grange (also known as ‘The Old Vicarage’) was used to house clergy until the mid-1950s and extends to 4,644 square foot. Over three floors in total, there are amongst other things 3 reception rooms, a conservatory and 4 bedrooms in the main house. The self-contained second floor is currently used as a 3 bedroomed flat that is let for £11,000 per year.

 

Standing in 0.74 acres of gardens that have previously been opened as part of the National Gardens Scheme, Hailsham Grange has previously been used as a B&B and events venue and featured in Country Life, the FT and the Wealden Times magazine.

 

Savills will offer the property on 26th March 2020 via remote bidding with a guide price of £975,000+. To register, contact them via bidding@savills.com

 

The adjoining 1,605 square foot coach house to the property, which is currently divided into four one-bedroom flats, is available separately at a price of £500,000, but not included in the auction listing.

  1. I doubt that this property will go for anything like the guide price, though it may well still be something of a bargain from it’s value six months ago. As in times of recession, the current situation will do little more than allow Landlords to increase the size of their property portfolio at a knock down price. As a (very) wealthy acquaintance of mine said to me in 2008, “I love a recession, when recession comes, that’s when I go shopping”…
