Vivien Leigh’s Former Sussex Home on Sale for £3.5 Million

The Sussex home once owned by the Hollywood actress Vivien Leigh has gone on the market for £3,5 million ($4,8 million). In 1961, the famous actress bought Tickerage Mill, for £20,000. She used it to get away from London, spending hours in the garden and receiving many famous guests including former husband Laurence Olivier, Princess Margaret, John Gielgud, John Merivale and Winston Churchill. After she died of tuberculosis in 1967, her ashes were scattered on the estate’s pond. The estate contains a five-bedroom mill house (which dates to the early 17th century and has not been a working mill for many years) and a separate two-bedroom cottage.
