The Priest House is an East Sussex village house dating from the 14th century constructed of mainly clay tile hung upper elevations under a pitched clay tile roof. The property has undergone sympathetic refurbishment recently and is now very well presented, blending period charm with contemporary interior design.

Am impressive vaulted entrance hall and a tripe aspect drawing room make the house very light while the inglenook fireplace in the drawing room and the oak floorboards and oak studded doors throughout the property also give it character; the dining room has exposed beams and a fascinating stained glass panelled window.
