Downton followers can buy their own piece of Victorian history

Homebuyers missing their Sunday fix of British drama following the recent season finale of Downton Abbey can now buy their own piece of Gothic Victorian architecture characterising the show at Weston Homes development Mayfield Grange, East Sussex.

Buyers can live in their own home steeped in distinguished history at Mayfield Grange, a luxurious country estate on the manicured rolling lawns of a site which dates back to 1868. Perfect for buyers seeking a luxurious home in an exemplary English countryside location, the former site of Mayfield College has been transformed into a prestigious residential estate.

Comprising of 16 three, four and five bedroom houses and 39 new-build apartments the development offers a manor lifestyle like no other. Mayfield Grange, set within 20 acres of grounds, is offering buyers the last chance to get their hands on the only remaining unique conversion with a dramatic staircase, arched stained glass windows and high-ceilings.

Built in the Gothic style by Edward Welby Pugin for the Duchess of Leeds in 1865, the buildings on-site were originally erected as an orphanage under the Xavierian brothers. Pugin was the eldest son of famous architect and designer of Neo-Gothic architecture Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin and followed in his fathers’ footsteps designing the renowned Alton Towers, Scarisbrick Hall, and Shrewsbury Cathedrals – among many other British churches and cathedrals primarily in the Isles.

Bob Weston, Weston Homes Chairman and Chief Executive, comments: “Mayfield Grange is without doubt one of my favourite buildings, and demonstrates the skill of the entire team in creating such high quality homes. It offers the best of both worlds with a selection of timeless new-builds and spacious conversions alongside the most architecturally dramatic buildings in the area, all set in picturesque landscape.”

The new-build homes, St Anthony’s House and St James’ House, and high-specification apartments have been carefully designed to complement the surroundings and seamlessly fit alongside the historic original architecture of Mayfield College.

Mayfield Grange is located close to the beautiful historic village of Mayfield, nestled amongst gently rolling hills, and just 15 minutes from Royal Tunbridge Wells, with its world famous Pantiles shopping precinct and a wealth of exclusive shops, stores and restaurants.

The A22 and the A26 are close by providing quick connections to the M25, while excellent rail links provide journey times from Tunbridge Wells to Charing Cross in around 55 minutes.

Prices start from £325,000. For more information, please contact Mayfield Grange’s Sales and Marketing Suite on 01435 874 837
