VIRTUAL VEWINGS AVAILABLE

Fine and Country are delighted to bring to market for the first time in 33 years this stunning eight-bedroom period home on a premier road in St. Leonards-On-Sea.

Located on the prestigious Albany Road, with its own entrance, and off-street parking, the property offers exceptionally light and spacious living accommodation of over 3940 square feet set over four floors, with high ceilings and a wealth of period features, and includes a two bedroom annex with its own entrance, and outside a large garden. The first thing that strikes you about the property is its enviable position, giving panoramic views over the sea, Beachy Head and the South Downs.

Once inside you find an unusually well preserved and dignified Victorian house of 1886, built by well-known local builders Eldridge and Cruttenden, who laid out much of the area in the nineteenth century with substantial villas in large gardens, intended for the well-to-do.

The current owners have respected the heritage of the house and have lovingly restored its interior over the 33 years they have lived at the property, while retaining the modern siting of the kitchen on the ground floor as being more adapted for contemporary living. The property also has fibre optic broadband.

This outstanding property, which has retained a plethora of wonderful original features throughout, consists of on the ground floor, an entrance hall, kitchen, dining room, cloak room and drawing room. On the first floor the property has three double bedrooms, dressing room and shower room. On the second floor the property consists of a large family bathroom and three double bedrooms. Also, on the lower ground floor with its own entrance, the property benefits from a two double bedroom annex with sitting room, bathroom, kitchen, conservatory and utility room.

Outside the property benefits from a large garden surrounded on one side by a high brick wall and on the other by a high wooden fence and also with a large shed to the rear.

The property, an imposing Victorian brick built house, is approached via a private entrance with room for parking for two cars to the front, and a tiled path leading to the front door. On entering the stunning stained glass front door, restored by well known stained glass artist Alan Wright using a careful blend of original floral medallions and new glass, you are led into a spacious entrance hall with original floorboards underfoot with a cloakroom and storage to your right and to your left a spacious and light drawing room with fireplace and square bay window. To the rear of the house on the ground floor is a large dining room, with bay window allowing for an abundance of light and spectacular sea views and a wonderful wooden feature fireplace, and an adjacent kitchen with wall and floor cabinets and modern appliances and a door leading to a balcony to the rear overlooking the garden.

Taking the stairs in the hallway to the lower ground floor you find two double bedrooms, a spacious sitting room with large bay window, a brick built conservatory, kitchen, family bathroom and boiler room. The lower ground floor annex also has its own entrance from the side of the property with an entrance lobby, formerly the butlers pantry, and due to the ground level at the rear of the property being substantially lower than the front the lower ground floor actually sits at ground level at the rear meaning that there is no compromise on the amount of light entering the property.

Taking the stairs to the first floor, the property has three large double bedrooms, two of which have bay windows and all of which have fireplaces, a shower room and a dressing room linked to the largest of the three bedrooms.

Up again to the second floor you find three more double bedrooms, each with their own vanity basins, and a large family bathroom.

Despite the beauty and dignity of much of the house it is first and foremost a family home, which provided plenty of room for the owners and their six children when they moved in and has since proved a magnet for grandchildren too! The lower ground floor has served as a "granny annex" for two sets of relatives over the past 30 years.

Now the children have all long ago flown the nest, and even the grandchildren are growing up, the time has come for the two remaining occupants to pass on this property to someone who would relish the space and charm of this wonderful example of Victorian building.

The property sits in a quiet and much sought after residential road near regency Burton's St Leonards, part of the historic seaside borough of Hastings and St Leonards, within easy walking distance of the sea and a vibrant collection of restaurants, pubs and cafes, primary and secondary schools, as well as two well served main line stations with direct trains to London, Eastbourne and Brighton.
