Ornate plaster details and stunning floors set the stage for a sophisticated mix of mid century, traditional and contemporary pieces in this Valencia home by Estudio María Santos.

A historic Tudor manor in Sussex

Posted on Sun, 24 Sep 2023 by KiM

Wings Place, sometimes referred to as ”Anne of Cleves House’, is one of the very few Grade I listed houses in private ownership in Sussex. The property is steeped in history and has been described as one of the best timber framed Tudor houses in the county. Wings Place is architecturally typical of the Tudor era, being timber framed with handsome characteristics including a striking gable to the northern aspect with oversailing to the first floor, ornamental timbers and carved bargeboards, together with tall brick chimneys and leaded light casement windows. Internally, the characterful yet spacious accommodation benefits from excellent ceiling heights and is arranged over three floors, with wonderful oak joinery, two oak staircases and several 16th Century inglenook fireplaces. The property is superbly appointed; sympathetically blending a wealth of original period features with quality, modern fixtures and fittings. (Photos: Adam Firman)
This gorgeous and historic 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 4 reception room home is for sale via Jackson-Stops for £2,250,000. I used to think Tudor homes were very dark and….harsh is I guess a reasonable word to use. Now I think all those wood beams and angles make this style so full of character.
