Also to the front is a detached outbuilding which has been converted to provide a studio with large glazed panes, skylight windows, oak flooring, light and power and a wash basin. The house sits fairly centrally within its plot having extensive sweeping terraced lawns and a former tennis court surrounding the property, interspersed with mature trees and shrubs with well established boundaries. Immediately to the rear is an area of York stone terracing enjoying an outlook over the garden towards Chick Hill and across Pett Level with sea views over Rye Bay. There is also a kitchen garden, original restored oak greenhouse, timber shed and a log store. The whole is estimated to extend to in excess of one acre. From the rear garden, a private path leads down the cliff side providing a short cut and giving access to Pett Level Road and the beach beyond.

Directions: Entering Pett Level from an easterly direction (Rye), go past the Smugglers pub on your left hand side. After a short distance, beyond where the road bends around to the right, you will see a turning on the right and a signpost to Pett.

Turn up this private road where Dower House will be found after a short distance being the second house on the left hand side.
