High Beeches auction 1966 Lots 1 to 5

Lots 1 to 5 in the particulars of the sale by auction of the High Beeches estate can be viewed by selecting Open Document.
The prices fetched have been inserted against each lot by hand. The High Beeches Nursery was withdrawn from the sale, presumably because it did not reach the reserve price.
It will be surprising to many local residents that the estate stretched all the way from Balcombe Lane, Handcross to Upper Common, Staplefield.
Included in this section of the auction particulars are the site and gardens of the ruined High Beeches house, High Beeches Nursery, and Rocks Farm, Staplefield.
The map enclosed with the auction particulars can be viewed on picture #1359, and details of lots 6 to 16 on picture #1361.

Thanks you for posting this. Is there more to the document than you posted?
I am interested in details about Grassland Cottages which I don't see in the lots posted.
Thank you very much.

Andy, sorry, I failed miserably by not adding two links to the other two documents in this set of three!
I have added links above which will take you to the map and to the remaining lots included in the auction. This includes three cottages for you to choose from if you are looking for Grasslands Cottages. Lot 11 is now called The Dower House and has either been converted from the old residence or is a new house, with probably the old cottage being demolished.
Lots 13 and 14 are a pair of roadside semi-detached cottages called 1, Grasslands (North) and 2, Grasslands.
