Devonshire Mansions, Eastbourne
A unique opportunity to purchase a seventh floor luxury apartment located in a key position on the seafront. The building has magnificent panoramic views and easy access to the wealth of cultural and social activities that exist within Eastbourne town and surrounding area.
There can be few places in Eastbourne, located on the 'sunshine coast', that offers more stunning views than the exclusive homes occupying the highest levels of Devonshire Mansions. From the seventh floor, this outstanding apartment commands a breath-taking 180-degree vista, embracing the elegant promenade and pier, manicured gardens, The Wish Tower, the beach and the glistening sea.
Set on the Grand Parade, Devonshire Mansions is an impressive landmark on Eastbourne's skyline. Many of the nearby buildings are Victorian in origin, built when the town first emerged as a fashionable seaside resort. The apartment was built by Berkeley Homes in 2005; a developer renowned for creating sound and stylish properties.
The apartments in this luxury development stand on the site of the Devonshire Baths, which were constructed around the same time as the Devonshire Park, The Winter Gardens and the Devonshire Park Theatre all dating back to mid eightieth century. Located in a key position on the seafront, the building offers easy access to the wealth of cultural, educational and social facilities. Eastbourne has seen substantial investment in the last few years. Within the town centre, a multi million pound extension to the covered Arndale shopping centre, now re-named "The Beacon". The build was completed with twenty-two additional retail units, seven restaurants, an eight-screen cinema plus further pedestrianisation of surrounding streets. Another investment recently completed in Eastbourne is "The Devonshire Quarter" another multi million pound project to enhance culture, conferencing and sporting facilities. This includes the refurbishment and extension of the Congress Theatre, now the largest theatre on the south coast.
The two bedroom/two-bathroom property benefits from being one of the homes in the structures eye-catching "turret" feature. This gives added dimension, shape and character to the apartment's spacious living room. This area has a multi-angled south facing wall which is virtually all windows, providing a marvellous and varied outlook on the seafront. A door at one end opens onto a similarly south-facing balcony.
Bright and appealing, the reception room is approached through double doors from a sizeable hall with deep cloak cupboards and guest cloakroom. Leading from the hall, too, is a beautifully equipped kitchen with windows looking across the balcony to the sea. In the kitchen, fittings include light wood units and a range of Siemens appliances including an oven, microwave and ceramic hob. The splashbacks, extractor hood and electric switches are in matching stainless steel. There is room in the kitchen as well as the living room for a dining table and chairs.
The Master bedroom is a triple aspect room with sea and beach views and a door to the south facing balcony. It has a range of full height wardrobes with sliding doors, TV and Telephone point and an en suite bathroom. The en suite has twin wall mounted sinks with single lever mixer taps plus mirror fronted cabinets with light and internal shaver point, a separate bath and shower unit and a chrome towel warmer. The second bedroom is larger then the master bedroom, still offering lovely views and an en suite bathroom with all ceramic ware by Villeroy & Boch, and with chrome taps by Hansgrohe, as in the Master bedroom.
This high specification apartment, which can be accessed via a passenger lift has been built with safety, security and ease-of-maintenance in mind. There is a video entry phone system, mains powered smoke detectors and double-glazed windows with 'tilt and turn' mechanisms for trouble-free cleaning.
