Situated within the sought after area of the Old Town in Bexhill-On-Sea is this delightful 5/6 bedroom attached town house, perfect for a second home by the sea, or as a permanent residence in this popular conservation area. Being a short walk to the centre of town and close to the seafront, Bexhill is nestled between Eastbourne and Hastings on the south coast.

Built circa 1742, the house is rich with history and was once joined with Trafalgar House to form one building. The whole was previously used as a general store and was once described as selling 'lotions, cordials and drops', then having a change of use to a tailor and a draper before being split into 2 homes in the 1970's. Since then it has been home to Louis Dodds, a local famous artist from Hastings.

Approached by the driveway from the High Street, there is a fabulous Doric Porch to shelter under as you pull the bell to enter. Once inside, the home is surprisingly spacious and full of character, with each room having it's own theme and story to tell. The drawing room has a fantastic Turner mural to one wall and original wooden flooring with diamond pattern detailing, a period fireplace with wood burner stove, and French doors leading out to the walled garden. The dining room is grand with panelled walls and shuttered windows, and leads to the principal staircase. One of the most used rooms of this house is the kitchen, and it certainly has the wow factor being hand crafted and full of cream units with wood and granite worksurfaces. Downstairs you also have a useful rear lobby leading to the cloakroom and utility room.

Upstairs you have dual landings with a second staircase at the far end. The master bedroom has an interconnecting door to the library/bedroom 3, bedroom 2 is a perfect guest room and bedroom 4 is used as a dressing room by the current owners, plus you have a wonderful modern luxury bathroom. Up on the second floor are 2 good size bedrooms with built in wardrobes and a modern fitted shower room.

Outside there is a delightful walled courtyard style garden with a terrace just made for al fresco dining. A gate leads to the side storage area and walkway to the front. In addition you have off street parking for two cars to the side of the property on the driveway.
