ST LEONARDS ON SEA

St Leonards on Sea was created by the well-known London builder James Burton between 1827 and 1837, his son, the architect Decimus Burton, added further buildings in the 1850's and 60's. James Burton conceived the town as a brand new seaside resort for the wealthy and it became instantly popular with royalty and aristocracy. The town prospered and expanded until it merged with Hastings.

The property location, not far from the seafront, is suggested to be 'central' 'historic' and 'beautiful', in the heart of Burton St Leonards. Maze Hill which connects with Upper Maze Hill is lined with striking 19th century Gothic villas and is named after the maze that once occupied the top end of St Leonards Gardens. The well-maintained private garden of Markwick Terrace are just around the corner and membership can be granted for a small charge.
Upper Maze Hill is well known for larger properties, the road which offers good driving routes through the town can provide access to the A21 to London.
