DESCRIPTION Set in the grounds of the ruined medieval church of St Helens and the site of former Victorian Manor House of Ore Place (which served in its time as a Jesuit Seminary where Teilhard de Chardin, scientist and theologian, was its most famous student, then later as an Army Record Office before being demolished). The property is approached by a tree lined avenue and is set on a beautiful spot well back from the road, with amazing distant sea views towards Beachy Head at the rear. The exclusive development was built by well known local builder Steed Developments and is well laid out and was sold as Hastings premier address!

The house itself is decorated throughout to a high standard and is amazingly spacious with a wide bright hallway and lovely oak staircase leading up to the large galleried landing on the first floor. For formal dining, the dining room is of a good size with space big enough for a family sized table and chairs and has a pleasant front facing aspect. The sitting room is light and bright with sliding patio doors leading out onto the terrace and with far reaching sea views to the rear. In the kitchen, a functional kitchen island and new work surfaces have been added recently and provide a modern contrast to the more traditional light oak units. There is also an arch to the large open plan breakfast room with sliding patio doors & views out to the distant sea, which in turn leads to the utility room. For flexible use you have a downstairs shower room and study/ bedroom 6 which could be utilised as an annexe wing for a family member. Upstairs, both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have ensuites, and there are another two double bedrooms and a large single bedroom plus family bathroom with freestanding shower. All of the bedrooms come with built in storage and the rear facing rooms have the beautiful views over to the Channel and Beachy Head.

For parking there is a large sweeping driveway with parking for several cars and this leads to the double detached garage complete with personnel door to the side and power. A weaving path leads to the front door and covered loggia effect porch extending over the front and to the left of the house. You have side access to the rear garden. To the rear are carefully laid terraces incorporating flagstones from the cellar at Ore Place itself, and beautifully kept flower and shrub borders leading to a tiered rockery and down to a piazza, perfect for an evening drink. There is a gate at the end of the garden which leads out to the open plan meadow, where you own the section immediately in front of the garden.

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with over 100 acres of conservation woodland and parkland to the rear, the development was built to be one of the most sought after locations within Hastings. The seaside and coastal attractions are close by, along with the Old Town and the main town, supermarkets, schools and the hospital are all within reach. Close by are the towns of Historic Battle and St Leonards, as well as Bexhill-On-Sea. For sports you have Sailing at Bewl Water, Golf at Cooden Valley, local horse riding facilities and both Rye Harbour and Eastbourne Marina are within a short drive away.

Transport links are accessible by road or rail, with the ring road to the A21 to London and Sevenoaks close by and train links from Hastings or Battle take you into central London for commuting.
