DESCRIPTION  

Tucked away from view is this beautiful Georgian era period conversion. Formerly used as a carpentry workshop, the property was designed and built in around 1830 by famous Architects- James and Decimus Burton, who were responsible for the development of the beautiful Georgian buildings that now make up the town of St Leonards-On-Sea. Over the years the building has had various uses, but was finally converted to this unusual residential home in around 2002. This lovely home really captures the essence of Georgian design, with elegant lines, tall casement windows, high ceilings and a super sweeping staircase, yet has had some stunning modern twists added such as a stainless steel kitchen, and feature wall to the lounge, that really complement the building and pay homage to its former use.

The home itself is full of surprises, and the sweeping staircase in the entrance hall is just the first of many. The lounge is a glorious open space with tall windows and doors that lead out to the private courtyard garden. Feature walls of brick and steel compete for your attention and then you notice the finer details such as period radiators and floor to ceiling doors that lead into the contemporary stainless steel kitchen. As you move up the stairs you will notice how light and bright the property is and the landing at the top leads to all 4 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a lovely view over the gardens, plus an en-suite shower room with rainfall shower. The family bathroom has a matching suite, and soothing colour changing lighting.

Outside, there is private off street parking on the gravel driveway at the front and a gated electronic entrance leads into the private garden which is fully enclosed with original stone walls and shrub borders. To the rear is a good size sunny enclosed courtyard specimen plants and shrubs, raised decking, and a storage shed with awning.

This wonderful home is located close to the popular Norman Road shopping area with art galleries and boutiques, please a short distance from the train station, Warrior Square and the seafront promenade of St Leonards-On-Sea.
