Full description

Lynwood House was built by well known quality local builders, Messrs Lovell, in 1956 in the Sussex style. The design is believed to have been featured in the Ideal Home Exhibition at about that time. The house offers generous accommodation and entertaining space with good size rooms set within mature and established landscaped gardens. Lynwood House retains much original character including exposed joinery and beams, extensive leaded light windows, African Sapele parquet floors to reception areas and an impressive Canadian pitch pine staircase. The principal rooms are southerly to take advantage of not only the aspect but the views. Improvements have been carried out over the years and benefits include gas heating, rewiring and cavity wall insulation. There is scope for enlargement or remodelling and the creation of further bedrooms and en-suite facilities should this be desired. Garnet Drive is an exclusive close convenient for Downland walks and Willingdon Golf Club. There are local facilities in the village with further amenities in Eastbourne town centre. Eastbourne benefits from comprehensive shopping facilities, mainline railway station, theatres, marina and seafront promenades.
