Grand Ocean is an exceptional collection of high specification one and two-bedroom apartments, located on the doorstep of the rolling picturesque Sussex Downs, with breathtaking views of the South Coast. Explore Living have completed the restoration of the original 1930’s Art Deco hotel building, as well as the construction of four brand new wings providing an ideal coastal retreat, perfect for couples, downsizers and first time buyers alike.

At Grand Ocean, you can escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and enjoy the unique combination of tranquillity, stunning views, classical surroundings and
high quality living. You’re on the doorstep of the Sussex Downs with breathtaking views of rolling hills, quintessentially English villages and walks for all abilities. In the other direction, the iconic white cliffs stand guard over the waves lapping on the beach, making for some excellent coastal walks. It’s hard to believe, then, that Brighton Marina with its fabulous shopping, eating out and leisure facilities is just 2 and a ½ miles down the road. And beyond that, Brighton itself, the cosmopolitan capital of the south coast.

The last few apartments located in the original Hotel building are now available with the Caspian Heights collection now released for sale with apartments offering outstanding views and spacious private balconies and terraces.

Grand Ocean also offers residents gymnasium, secure underground parking and lifts to all levels.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

As if you needed confirmation that Grand Ocean is one of the finest seaside developments on the market, less than 3 miles to the west is Brighton Marina, one of Europe’s largest with over 1,600 berths. But Brighton Marina offers much more than just somewhere to moor your boat. It’s one of the south coast’s most lively lifestyle destinations with a fabulous choice of bars, cafés, restaurants and entertainment facilities including an eight-screen cinema and bowling complex. It’s also a shopper’s paradise, with a huge range of top high street brands and some more exclusive names.

Local Shopping

Just under 3 miles further along the coast from the marina is Brighton itself. It’s no wonder that so many people fall for Brighton: its famous residents have included Sir Laurence Olivier and DJ Fatboy slim. Brighton has long been the place to visit outside London. With a mix of historic architecture, beautiful open spaces, the elegant esplanade and the narrow passageways of The Lanes, there’s something to cater for every taste. And it’s equally as famous for its vibrant nightlife, cosmopolitan choice of bars, pubs and eating places. Oh, and did we mention retail therapy? Brighton is just what the doctor ordered! No wonder Brighton has acquired the nickname ‘London-by-the-Sea’…


For the more energetic, there’s a David Lloyd Club with great views of the beach and pier. Or you can just wile away a couple of hours watching the world go by to the sound of the masts clinking in the breeze.

Transport Links

The development is near to the famous Saltdean Lido and is the perfect location for buyers as it is offers high-quality housing within close proximity to local amenities and the beach. There is also a regular bus service connecting Saltdean to Brighton and various other local destinations.
