It’s the latest, of these mega villas that have been offered for sale at this time of economic crisis. The famous star of “Gone with the Wind” lived in this wonderful house, from 1961, which is located in the outskirts of the village of Framfield in the Wealden District, East Sussex.
Today the house is on the market for 3.5 million pounds (about 4.25 million Euros). It is located in an area where you can enjoy absolute privacy and is only accessible by a private road. As well as Vivien Leigh, the villa has hosted important personalities such as Princess Margaret, Churchill and Robert Helpman, who designed the garden.
