A Grade II listed Elizabethan manor house believed to be the oldest in a Sussex town is up for sale.

Hammonds Place, in Burgess Hill, dates back to the late 1400s and is on the market for £1.75m.

The property, which Queen Elizabeth I is believed to have stayed at, still has some original features such as the original hall of the house.

The Argus: The property also comes with a self-contained annexe

As well as the amount of accommodation it has to offer, the property has a range of other notable features including the reception hall, "original library" and a games room.

There is also a 27ft drawing room with stained glass bay windows that overlook the rose garden, as well as a central staircase which estate agents say gives the property a "real sense of grandeur".

The 28ft kitchen is also described as "a superb space for entertaining", with a large central island and a "rustic feel" thanks to the exposed brickwork and beams, along with the stable door that leads to the garden.

A formal dining room, which has an open fire place, is also described as being one of the central parts of the home.

As well as plenty of indoor space, the property also has a number of outside areas for future homeowners to enjoy, including a balcony, paved terrace areas, a "formal rose garden" and a water feature.

The property, believed to be the oldest in the town, is currently on the market for £1.75m.
