Piers Morgan’s quiet life at his second home in Sussex – average house prices are £600,000


Share post:


Piers Morgan, 57, is a British television broadcaster and journalist known for dividing opinions – some enjoying his brash style of no-nonsense news telling, while others would prefer him to be a little quieter. Since leaving ITV’s Good Morning Britain piers has taken the role of presenter of his new show ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’ on TalkTV since the end of April. While the TV host had a house in Kensington where he spends most of his time, he also has a property in Sussex that he can whisk away to when he gets bored of the city life.

Whilst Piers is often the centre of attention on screen, his life in Sussex is much less well known. He spent much of his childhood in the East Sussex village of Newick where the property is located.

Piers was born in Reigate on March 30, 1965, the son of an Irish dentist dad and an English mum. 

He has an older brother called Jeremy and, shortly after his birth, Piers and his family relocated to Newick where his mum later remarried.

Piers attended a comprehensive school in the Lewes district of Chailey before following this up with sixth form studies at Priory School in Lewes. 

Emma Tucker, another prominent journalist who is the current editor of the Sunday Times, also attended the Priory School.

Locals are only a short trip away from the ancient woodland of Bedgebury Forest, the magnificent Wadhurst Castle, and over 2,000 kilometres of nature trails. The South Downs aren’t too far away either, giving a whole new array of options for nature lovers.

Haywards Heath is just 10 kilometres away for any shopping that residents could want, and the city lights of Brighton are just half an hour down the road.

Bewl Water, the largest inland body of water in the south east, is another popular attraction that people will drive for miles to see.

The secluded village has the advantage of maintaining its privacy, while still only being a short drive away from major towns.

However, despite its rural setting, the village itself does still offer plenty, with plenty of pubs, independent shops, a greatly acclaimed restaurant, and a church dating back to the Norman era.

When it comes to houses in the village, properties in Newick had an overall average house price of £612,900 over the last year, according to Rightmove.

The majority of sales in Newick during the last year were detached properties, selling for an average price of £699,818. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £499,375, with flats fetching £565,000.

Overall, sold prices in Newick over the last year were eight percent up on the previous year and 11 percent up on the 2019 peak of £552,064.
