A beautiful Neo-Gothic former convent converted into a luxury development of eight unique townhouses, all with private gardens and period features, and five individually designed detached houses.
Grosvenor Hall is situated on the western side of Haywards Heath, a town which has long been a favourite of commuters owing to its easy links to London and the coast. The station is located within one mile and offers train services to London Bridge, Victoria and Blackfriars, with journey times of between 45 minutes to 1 hour. In addition, Haywards Heath station is on the Gatwick Express route, giving even faster journey times to London and Brighton in peak hours. The A23 and M23 are on the doorstep, leading north to Gatwick and the M25, and south to Brighton and the coast. For frequent travellers a home at Grosvenor Hall could be an ideal UK base for a ‘lock up and leave' lifestyle.
Haywards Heath town offers a range of high street shops and several supermarkets including a shortly to be opened Waitrose, a variety of restaurants on the Broadway and swimming and sports facilities at the Dolphin Leisure Centre. The town's history can be seen in the Conservation Area around Muster Green, where there are many listed buildings including a 16th century pub, The Sergison Arms, and the historic church of St Wilfrid's another landmark. For quieter moments, Haywards Heath is surrounded by the scenic countryside of the High Weald, Ashdown Forest and the glorious South Downs as well as number of picturesque villages such as Cuckfield and Lindfield.
Outdoor pursuits on offer include a highly active equestrian scene with riding in Ashdown Forest, show jumping at Hickstead and racing at Plumpton. There are also the famous gardens of Nymans, Wakehurst Place and Sheffield Park to stroll through. The agricultural showground at Ardingly hosts the famous South of England Show and country fairs throughout the year.
There is a superb cultural scene, with world-class opera at Glyndebourne near Lewes, and the annual Brighton Festival presenting a huge programme of theatre, dance, classical music and literature events.

Located on the edge of Haywards Heath and set in nine acres of landscaped gardens adjoining ancient bluebell woodland, Grosvenor Hall is a beautiful Neo-Gothic building skilfully converted into eight individual Victorian townhouses all with private gardens, together with five further detached homes.
These eight elegant homes combine period features with comfortable modern living designed to the highest specification: built in 1886, the building was used as a convent for the Community of The Holy Cross, an Anglican Benedictine order, then as an orphanage. It was designed by Ninian Comper, one of the last great Gothic Revival architects and retains many gothic period features. The main chapel (now Chapel Height apartments) was designed by Max Gill and added shortly afterwards, with the foundation stone being laid in June 1902 by Viscount Halifax.
