AN ATTRACTIVE 9 BEDROOM (5 EN-SUITE) GUEST HOUSE WITH MANY ORIGINAL FEATURES & VIEWS ACROSS DELIGHTFUL PUBLIC GARDENS AND OUT TO SEA, SET IN ST LEONARDS-ON-SEA.

It is just a few minutes by car from the town centre, a pleasant 30-minute beachfront stroll from the main tourist attractions of Hastings Old Town, and just a few minutes' walk from West St Leonards train station.

THE PROPERTY: The substantial semi-detached property offers versatile accommodation on three floors with a cellar. It is in good decorative order with some interesting features including some very attractive stained glass windows, high ceiling & ornate cornices.

THE TENURE: FREEHOLD

THE BUSINESS
The guest house has been successfully run by the current husband and wife team for many years and is now only being offered for sale due to ill health and final retirement. It is promoted on-line via various websites including the likes of booking.com, etc and is generally well regarded on Trip Advisor and has its own website and it has a 5 Food Hygiene Rating.

The current turnover is in excess of 70,000per annum and the business shows a healthy Net Profit that, in our opinion, could easily be increased. With current single room rates from 40 per night, standard double/twin rooms from 70 and double en-suite rooms from 75, considerable scope exist to increase the current room rates.

In our opinion the property appears very well maintained, it was re-wired and had a new roof in 2012 and is currently traditionally decorated, although with its many retained Victorian features and spacious rooms, it would also lend itself very well to being presented in a boutique guest house style, if preferred.

TOTAL FLOOR AREA: 3197 square (297 square metres) approx.
