LINDENS, HOLTYE ROAD, RH19
Sadly, £750,000 won’t buy you the whole of this Grade II-listed country house built for the Cunard family at the start of the 20th century, but it will buy you the south-west wing. The interior needs updating but it has four bedrooms and there is potential to enlarge the kitchen/breakfast room and turn the attic rooms in to further living accommodation. East Grinstead is just under an hour by train from London Bridge. Contact: Hamptons on 01892 516611,
