Marine Court, St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex

Sold STC £69,950

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This one-bedroom flat is positioned on the first floor of the remarkable Grade II-listed Marine Court. Designed by Kenneth Dalgleish and Roger K Pullen, the building was completed in 1938.

The apartment is situated on the quiet north-facing side of the block which receives a lovely reflected morning and afternoon light, and benefits from its proximity to parking at the rear of the building. Arranged as a living room, separate kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom, the property retains a number of original features such as doors, door handles and windows, and represents an exciting opportunity for refurbishment. The block is serviced by 24-hour porterage.

The building itself is undergoing a major external refurbishment now that its management has been taken over by the residents.

The first foundations of Marine Court were laid in 1936 and construction was completed in 1938. An early pioneer of steel-frame construction, the building is 14 storeys high and sits broadside to the seafront. Its form was overtly based on the Queen Mary, a transatlantic cruise ship which entered commercial service in 1936. The east end of Marine Court is shaped to imitate the curved, stacked bridge front of the Queen Mary, whilst the eastern restaurant imitates the fo'c'sle deck of the ship.

St. Leonards-on-Sea, and neighbouring Hastings, is fast becoming a popular seaside town, partly due to its proximity to London, but also because of its beautiful Regency architecture. Developer-architect James Burton, and his son Decimus, developed the resort in the early 19th century, with echoes of London’s Marylebone and Belgravia where the Burtons had previously practised.

St. Leonards has a growing number of delicatessens, bars, pubs and restaurants, and has been a popular spot for 20th-century furniture shops and galleries for some years. The newly renovated Hastings Pier can be seen from the flat.

Direct train services from St. Leonards and Hastings reach London’s Charing Cross in approximately an hour and a half.
