An Eastbourne property once owned by Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant has been completely refurbished and extended in to a contemporary and state-of-the art home and is on the market with a £1million price tag.

The sale of Ilex End in Upper Carlisle Road marks the end of a two year project by the current owner who has worked alongside renowned architect and designer Martin Swatton, who was behind transforming a once ordinary 1980s bungalow in to a new home for Rathfinny’s Vineyard manager and his family in Alfriston.

Ilex End started life in the 1950s as a double garage with a flat above and served as the chauffeur’s accommodation for the large house next door.

In the mid 1970s it was extended to provide a family home.

Led Zep manager Peter Grant owned the property for many years and it remained in the family after his death until 2013.

It now has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a large open plan L-shaped kitchen, dining and sitting room, a studio annexe, utility room, a large south facing terrace and landscaped garden.

Other features include a bespoke wooden hand carved circular staircase, a self contained studio, bespoke entertainment centre, wide board oak flooring, full length floor to ceiling glass sliding doors, blackened larch cladding, wooden electrically operated gates, a granite gravel drive, a car port and parking for several cars, and meadow garden.

The house has been featured in housing design magazines and will be shown on Channel 4’s Build your Dream Home later this year.

The property is being marketed by Emslie and Tarrant in Eastbourne on 01323 727527 and Strutt and Parker in Lewes on 01273 475411.

Thanks for posting Sam.

"completely refurbished"  It would have been neat to see what it looked like at the height of Led Zeppelin's popularity. Maybe there are some pictures online, I really don't know, but up close and personal is always better.

Led Zeppelin disbanded about a decade before Peter moved there. His primary Led Zeppelin-era residence was Horselunges Manor, as depicted in The Song Remains The Same.
