A home in East Sussex comes with Paul McCartney as a neighbour
One of East Sussex's most stylish properties, which also comes with Paul McCartney as a neighbour, is for sale. Listed with Jackson-Stops & Staff's Cranbrook office for £1.5million, it is surrounded by fields in which Stella and Mary McCartney played as children.

Tucked away in a peaceful woodland setting near the singer's 1,500-acre estate, Starvecrow Cottage is no ordinary bungalow.

Indeed, it is more like a Shoreditch loft than a country pile, with Hoxton-based architects HÛT responsible for the design.

Quirky additions to the five-bedroom retreat include an Airstream caravan, an American paddle tennis court, a zip wire through the wood and a sunken trampoline. Even after a hard day's night, this pad is definitely worth the commute.
