The oldest parts of the house date back to the thirteenth century, while the present building as it stands was primarily built in 1738 under the instruction of the Lord of the Manor Thomas Western, and was renovated in 1905 by Charles Stanley Peach. This beautiful home eventually passed into the ownership of the Stanford family, who are thought to have been the richest family in Sussex, and who lived in Preston Manor for over 200 years.
Opened in 1874 by Edward Thomas Booth, a local naturalist and collector, the Booth Museum of Natural History contains over half a million specimens and artifacts extending from over three centuries. The museum also features the Discovery Laboratory, which offers interactive displays that allow visitors to explore the museum's collections.
From its exterior this 800 year-old church is simply constructed from flint rubble, but inside the church has been restored to an exquisite standard. The renovations the church received in previous decades painstakingly restored these paintings and the church's interior, which were damaged - and nearly lost forever - in a 1906 fire.
The largest urban park inside Brighton and Hove, Preston Park is the perfect place to enjoy a gorgeous summer's day, take a stroll or play some football. Whatever you like to do outside, you can find it at Preston Park - thanks to its large size the park is frequently used as a venue for concerts, fairs, Brighton and Hove Pride, family events and much more. A firm favourite with Brighton and Hove residents, Preston Park is the ideal place to spend any sunny day in the city.
Sophia Mackay 16/11/2018 ★★★★★ Just wanted to say how amazing Mishon Mackay where with finding my Mum a beautiful flat. They where so kind and helpful with every step of the process, Chris Cottrell was especially on the ball and made sure we had all the support we needed. My mums not very computer savvy and they ensured it was as easily as possible for her. I felt I could call at any time to ask questions and nothing was too much trouble for him, he even managed to get a better price than the original asking price for us!
I would use Mishon Mackay again, and highly recommend to anyone looking to rent or buy for a personal and thoughtful service. 5 star.
Sean Kember 15/12/2015 ★★★★★ A 5 Star Letting Agent!
Throughout my years as a landlord, I have never worked with a better agent than Mishon Mackay and have been extremely pleased with the service I have received from their fantastic team. They are bright, professional and personable people who apply a consultative approach. No matter who is looking after me, they always make me feel at ease. On a number of occasions they have found me good quality tenants and, more importantly, this was completed with speed so that the financial impact was kept to an absolute minimum. I am very comfortable with the levels of checks they carry out. Equally, I have been satisfied with the way they respond to day-to-day queries and issues, property visits and repairs during the tenancies they have managed for me - and continue to do so.
Rob Fell 16/01/2017 ★★★★★ Mishon Mackay (Maria Vrahnaki) let my flat for me as a fully managed service as I am currently overseas. The level of care and customer service I received was way above and beyond what I had expected and was completely effortless on my part; absolutely fantastic and I can't recommend highly enough - 5 star service.
