Sir Paul McCartney has lived at the same old farmhouse in East Sussex for more than 35 years.It's in the middle of nowhere,up an overgrown, narrow lane not far from the village Peasmarsh,10 minutes from Rye. This is where he sent his kids to the local school and spends most of his time. Only 6 houses share the same postcode and Macca owns 3 of them.
It's rare that houses in this area come up for sale as it's one of the prettiest,most desirable ,untouched parts of the county. The views are stunning and it's very,very private. What's more,there's no chance of any ugly buildings blotting the landscape cos Macca owns pretty much every field and forest. Rumour has it he owns over 2000 acres.
If you want to live next to Macca now you have the chance. A stunning,single storey Modernist masterpiece has just come on to the market. Style wise,this sensational architectural statement looks like it'd be more at home in Long Island ! Nearly 4000 sq ft of polished concrete floors surrounded by massive windows the flat roofed house is clad from top to toe in beautifully faded Siberian larch.
Surrounded by woods,the easy to manage grounds extend to more than 2 acres and feature a vintage Airstream trailer, a 1000 sq ft studio building with wetroom and kitchen,the UK's only "Venice Beach" style paddle tennis court ,a hot tub that cost the price of a nice car and an uber-cool heated swimming pool.
Featured in myraid style magazines,newspapers and TV programmes in the UK and overseas the owners are selling up to move to Malibu. At £1.95M the house is ideal for the those who want a base in the country near the sea but don't like thatched cottages with small dark rooms.
Local agents Phillips and Stubbs are handling the sale.
