Sir Richard Hotham (born October 5th 1722 - died March 13th 1799) rose to prominence as a renowned property developer and politician during the eighteenth century. He developed a love for the south coast, in particular Bognor Regis, where the favourable climate and proximity to the sea attracted and inspired him. Subsequently, he began purchasing and developing land in the local area, culminating in the construction of Aldwick Manor, known locally today as Hotham Park.
Glyn-Jones are therefore delighted to present an opportunity to acquire a slice of local history, by virtue of this converted split-level apartment now presented to the market.
