Full description

Located in a prime residential area of West St Leonards, a beautiful five bedroom Victorian house over five storeys, including a successful holiday let apartment. With off road parking for two cars, a large suntrap garden to the rear, Victorian period features, and sea views, this would make an ideal large family home for those looking for character, space, and proximity to the seafront.

The Location - West St Leonards is an upmarket residential area with a rich architectural history and superb sea views. With its own mainline train station providing fast routes to London, Ashford, and Brighton, this is a great location for commuters and locals. St Leonards on Sea is regularly featured in the national press as the most rapidly up and coming areas along the south coast.

Just a short walk down West Hill Road, there’s West St Leonards landscaped gardens, and miles of open coastline to walk or cycle along the seafront. Along the Marina, there are many excellent cafes and restaurants, while Central St Leonards has an arthouse cinema, antiques, and art galleries to explore.

The Property - This property has plenty of charm and character, whilst offering scope for potential to add one’s own interior design and further enhance the uniqueness of the house.

There are two entrances to the house, depending on how one would wish to make the most of the accommodation. As a whole house, this would offer five bedrooms, three reception rooms, and three bathrooms, with a courtyard and garden. Alternatively, there is a superb additional income opportunity, with a two bedroom apartment, over two levels, which has its own entrance and courtyard. This also works very well as a granny flat for hosting friends and family.

Off Road Parking - To the front of the house is an area of hard-standing and room for two cars.

Sea views and lots of natural light makes this a splendid family room.

Kitchen - 3.58m x 3.24m (11'8" x 10'7") - Overlooking the attractive rear garden and prominent former Victorian garden boundary wall, is this bright kitchen. Currently utilised as a low maintenance, minimalist kitchen, there would be great potential for a contemporary handmade kitchen, and possibly creating an open plan living space in to the front reception room.

This outside space really benefits from the sun all day long.

Ground Floor Maisonette - Currently run as a successful holiday let, the two bedroom apartment on the basement and ground floor, provides a versatile additional accommodation to be either rented out for supplementary income, adapted for an extended family, or incorporated in to the whole house.

Owners’ Comments - "We adore this house and fell in love with it the moment we saw it. The size of the house works so well for us a family and we find the granny flat perfect for having friends and family here, as well as extra income from holiday lets. It’s so rare to find a Victorian house that still has all of its period features, sea views, and parking was a must for us. The area is fantastic for families to bring up children in a friendly neighbourhood, and so close to the sea."
