For sale: 1970s-designed Eagle House in Uckfield, East Sussex

Eagle1

It's got a bird-like name and bizarrely, the Eagle House in Uckfield, East Sussex also has a bird-like shape.

The work of renowned British architect Ian Ritchie, the house was designed for a botanist in that 'bird in flight' shape back in 1979, positioned on a large conservation site that's rich in both plants and wildlife, with woodland, specimen plants, lawn and outcrops of rock positioned around it, which also means no-one overlooks you either.

In terms of the house, it is predominantly made of glass and steel, offering an entrance hall, living/dining room, kitchen, utility area, one en-suite bedroom with dressing room, four further bedrooms, a bathroom, family room, gallery and as you would expect from a botanist, a conservatory/plant room. Outside is a drive, double garage artist's studio and those gardens.

Obviously this doesn't come cheap, you'll need £925,000 to secure it. But if you want a look round first, there's an open day on Saturday 4th July.
