Live At Laughton Lodge

Stunning 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Detached House For Sale

If you’re searching for the unique combination of secure private luxury eco living, surrounded by shared woods, meadows and amenities alongside wonderful neighbours, then grab a cool glass of Chardonnay and read on.


Within Laughton Lodge, there are just four detached houses, and this is one of them. They rarely come onto the market. In fact, the last time was this house 13 years ago. Two of the other houses were built by their current owners.

This stunning, spacious cedar home has been completely renovated to a high spec with contemporary bespoke fittings throughout. The spectacular glass front of the house is glazed to the roof, offering an abundance of light and stunning views to the open countryside and the South Downs in the distance.

The property has a large front deck area with shade making it the perfect place for sunbathing, entertaining, working outside and relaxing.

You’ll have no shortage of storage space, with the hall containing floor to ceiling units along the whole length.

This well thought out home has an extremely spacious and flexible modern kitchen and dining area.

The lounge has a gorgeous double height ceiling, rotating woodburning stove and an all glass front.

There’s a double bedroom on the ground floor, with its own en suite shower/steam room. This room also has access via the large back deck and could easily be a guest room or granny annexe.

There are three further double bedrooms upstairs, one en suite, a stunning mezzanine area and a family bathroom.

You’ll find a large loft at the back of the house. Both the loft and the lounge ceiling void offer you the possibility to extend within the property should you desire.


Set in 23 acres of beautiful gardens, woods and meadows, Laughton Lodge is a thriving co-housing organisation of over 20 homes.

All houses at Laughton Lodge are self contained private homes bought on a 9,999 year lease and all homeowners are directors in the company that holds the freehold.

It benefits from shared buildings. The 11,000 square foot community building contains a dance hall, yoga studio, dining room, kid’s playroom, guest rooms, shower areas, office and studio spaces and a large commercial kitchen.

The water is drawn from a bore hole and not chemically treated.

The community comes together for monthly work days, parties and other seasonal celebrations (all encouraged but optional).

The Internet in all houses, offices and communal areas is 1000MBPS leased line.

Want to live here?

If you are interested in buying a home here please contact us.

Our intentional co-housing space has a diverse group of individuals who want space, nature, neighbours and a connected lifestyle for ourselves and our children.

We aim to balance our private family lives with our chosen responsibilities.

Each month we attend a short meeting where we make decisions about budgets and expenditure.

Most people choose to belong to a subgroup that they enjoy, such as maintenance, land or lettings. This means they get the benefit of 23 acres of land and other spaces, without having to maintain it alone.

One Sunday a month, we like to do the big jobs together, which gives us chance to bond with those me night not see.

Every Friday evening there is a pot luck supper for anyone who feels like eating with others.

But the real glue of Laughton Lodge is when we when we help each other out with babysitting, lifts, animals, shopping, parties, advice and friendship.

With around 70 residents, as a home owner at Laughton Lodge you get instant neighbours, more land than when buying alone, and there’s usually someone to lend a hand or a glass of wine. Learning how to get along with different people gives you new skills and a broader outlook on life.

Properties range in size from the four detached wooden houses to some extensive properties in the three former hospital villas, to smaller single storey and 2 bedroomed flats.

When properties come up for sale, the vendor gains the support of an internal sales team so you have several points of contact, should you wish to get to know your neighbours first.

Prices tend to be in line with other similar types of properties in the area and slightly cheaper than those in neighbouring Lewes.


While we do not have long term homes to rent some individuals do share their homes with people who rent rooms from them through private arrangements.

We welcome people lodging in this way to take an active part in the community as a non-director.

Our experience

Living in a co-housing space is a unique and rewarding experience.

We hold a collective vision about neighbourliness and what it is to share some resources and space. Thanks to the mix of people and the beautiful place in which we live, serendipitous things happen which are fun and funny and memorable, and which enrich our lives in ways we could never have imagined.

The children develop social and democratic skills and are exposed to a wide variety of events and people.

Our total is far greater than the sum of our parts.

Our Vision

I want to live in a community that provides a safe, welcoming, creative and precious environment to its residents, children and those from outside.

One where everyone has a role and willingly contributes to the care of our children, each other, land, buildings and process

A community that runs its business efficiently, wisely and responsibly, but above all knowing that there is a greater good in being and working together in community.
