DESCRIPTION The Grange is a fine example of a Victorian 'Arts & Crafts' House. Extensively upgraded and renovated by the current owners over the last eight years it offers ample space for the whole family (including elderly relatives) and the occasional guest. With the seafront and town centre just a short walk away and the Downs a quick drive away, one has access to the fabulous array of shops and restaurants as well as the best the Sussex countryside has to offer.

From the private driveway, with off street parking for multiple cars plus the garage, you are greeted by The Grange. A pretty walled front lawn with mature borders gives privacy to the house from the street. On entering through the front door you are exposed to an entrance hall of real grandeur which really takes your breath away, the proportions of which give you a sense of what is to come. Doors lead through into the formal lounge and dining rooms with their period features; such as the fireplaces, bay windows and picture rails. Also the large utility room plus cloakroom completes the rooms off the grand hall. The dog leg staircase leads upstairs where you will find 6 double bedrooms on the first floor, with one currently being used as a dressing room. The master bedroom has its own en-suite and two further shower rooms service the remaining bedrooms. On the top floor there is a surprising amount of space with two further bedrooms, however depending on your needs this could be used as a home office or child's den.
Back downstairs and through the hallway you step down to the spacious kitchen/diner which has been worked on by the current owners to provide the heart of the home, this was formerly broken up from a number of smaller impractical rooms but now provides a fantastic social space with doors leading out onto the garden. Beyond the kitchen you will find a lovely and cosy snug again with doors leading through to the garden. Attached but separate to the house is the ground floor annexe, a complete apartment with its own entrance and outside space, offering ancillary accommodation whether that be for elderly relatives or for an additional income. The private walled garden is predominantly laid to lawn and is not overlooked, it also benefits from views over the surrounding area.

The Grange sits on Prideaux Road within the popular Upperton area and is known for housing some of the finest character properties in the Eastbourne Area. Eastbourne Station is just under a mile away, offering services to London Victoria & Gatwick. In addition, the town centre has a fabulous array of restaurants and shops, one of the largest sailing marinas on the south coast and a number of golf courses.
