2 bedroom penthouse for sale

Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN20

Sold STC £595,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This penthouse apartment sits on top of a striking 1960s tower designed by the architects Benz & Williams and has sea views that must surely rival those from any residence on the South Coast.

Accommodation includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room and a wonderful, light-filled double-aspect living room (with a library area). It has substantial terraces on two sides of the apartment which are suitable for outdoor dining. It has been sympathetically refurbished in recent years by the current owner, an architect.

Notable features – aside from the panoramic views that extend over fifty miles from the white cliffs of Beachy Head – are the Kashmir granite and Carrara marble finishes and the floor to ceiling glazing.

South Cliff Tower, which is among the tallest residential buildings on the South Coast, is an elegant late ‘60s building with a subtle convex façade that has long attracted discerning buyers seeking an outstanding coastal apartment (indeed the James Bond actor Roger Moore is widely rumoured to have resided at South Cliff Tower). Today much of the attractive Mid Century Modern detailing remains including the signage and natural stone detailing in the lobby.

The building features extensive landscaped gardens and terraces with secure underground parking. The Penthouse has an allocated space within the secure residents garage.

The building has three house managers which serve the residents, and the penthouse can only be reached by the lift with a dedicated key, making it a particularly secure and private property.

South Cliff Tower and its lawns immediately overlook the sea front in the sought after Meads area of Eastbourne, on the edge of the South Downs National Park.

Meads has a range of shops and restaurants, with further facilities available in central Eastbourne, just one mile away. Eastbourne is also home to four theatres, as well as a train station that runs direct services to London Victoria (86 minutes) Gatwick Airport (53 mins) and Brighton (33 mins.).

A service charge (currently £4,174 per annum) covers the costs of the Tower’s staff and regular maintenance. We have been advised that the apartment is on a 199 year lease commencing in 1965.
