CAMELOT FOR SALE
"Camelot" East Grinstead, West Sussex, England
My home of 25 years is now for sale as I am returning to Australia.
With 25 years of continued creation, the house and garden have acquired a lovely healing energy. This house would suit anyone wanting to relocate to this beautiful part of England near the South Downs and who would appreciate living in this unique healing space. People coming here can tangibly feel the peaceful energy.
I have created a safe space for wildlife over many years. This will remain unless you prefer it otherwise. Several wild Mallard ducks fly in each summer to spend time sitting on the lawn and paddling in the stream. Many birds nest in the garden including doves, finches, blackbirds, robin and blue tits. A family of squirrels live in the healing oak tree and regularly play in the garden. None of the animals cause any problems or damage. They get on well together.
The town of East Grinstead is a town and Parish in the northeastern corner of Mid Sussex District of West Sussex in the south of England near the East Sussex, Surrey and Kent borders. The town has a special spiritual significance and has become the headquarters for many religious and philosophical organizations.
I would be grateful to be contacted by people for whom this is a viable proposition and who have a genuine interest. This property is definitely worth a proper viewing to see how spacious it is, both internally and externally.

"Camelot" East Grinstead, West Sussex
The house is located in East Grinstead, a lovely rural town, but with easy access to London, motorways and airport. It has a mainline train station with a half hour peak train service to London (hourly off peak). It is 15 minutes drive to Gatwick airport and both M23 and M25 motorways. It is only 30 minutes drive to the ocean at Brighton.
East Grinstead has always been a rather special and quietly spiritual town. It has attracted various philosophical groups and religions including the Rudolph Steiner schools, European Morman Temple and Church of Scientology headquarters. The Buddhist, Sufi's and others are nearby. (To get an idea of the town see: http://www.egnet.co.uk )
The house is situated in a valley on the southern fringe of town, with a recreation ground and lovely countryside and reservoir within easy reach. It is conveniently accessible to the town centre with its excellent shopping facilities and main line railway station. Although the house is within walking distance of the town centre, it is not close enough to attract fringe town centre parking. It is on a local bus route to town and nearby villages. This non estate property is ideally suited for a family who wish to enjoy the peace of rural England and yet be close to city amenities.
It is near Dunnings Mill Squash Club and Leisure facility with an indoor swimming pool and a Carpet Bowling club. Within a 5 minutes walk are the local Infants & Primary school, the Peredur Rudolph Steiner schools and a well stocked local shop with post office, news agency, fresh organic bread, video hire, etc.
The lovely village of Forest Row with The Steiner Michael Hall and Emerson College are about 6 minutes drive. For students attending Michael Hall, there is a back route to Michael Hall that avoids the town centres. Forest Row offers a complete range of organic products and fresh produce, an organic bakery, organic meat, medicinal herb shop and various therapies.
