This exceptional detached 1930’s home occupies a commanding position within its expansive wrap around gardens spanning over three quarters of an acre, on one of St Leonards most desirable and sought after private roads.
The house itself offers over 1800 square feet of versatile space with each room overlooking the mature gardens. The ground floor comprises of a spacious sitting room with hard wood flooring and double doors out, also a fitted kitchen and dining room with skylights running over both bathing these rooms in light throughout the day. A large double bedroom, shower room and dual utility space that makes up the rest of the ground floor.
Ascending the staircase, you first arrive at a half landing study room with large picture window and snug/storage space. Upstairs there are three more double bedrooms, the master with en-suite, and a family bathroom. The house is finished to an immaculate standard inside and out and all three bedrooms benefit from views over the garden and down towards the stream.
The house is approached by and in-and-out gravel driveway which leads first to a double garage, which has planning approval to be converted into a annex and then on to another single garage. The garden wraps around the entire house and measures at just over three quarters of an acre surrounded by mature trees making this the perfect secluded spot. There are several seating areas including one that bridges over the stream which runs through the garden to the lower south side. The garden’s open spaces enjoy the sun throughout the day and the large lawned area to the rear is the perfect place for expansion.
The property is close to the open spaces of Alexandra park, which can even be accessed by Old Roar Gill, with its array of recreational facilities and café. The beach and promenade are within walking distance as is Hastings town. Artist open houses run throughout Hastings in the spring months along with summer fairs and street parties. Looking for an evening out? Old Town and St Leonards are a short walk/drive away and have great local pubs serving good food (try The Crown, Custom House, Dragon, Wine Shed, St Clements, St Leonard and Half Man Half Burger). Excellent local shops including Penbuckles and Judges serving the best coffee and scrumptious things. Hastings station is close with a direct link to Charing Cross, Kings Cross International and Brighton accessible within 1h:30 mins perfect for commuters.
Hastings has the largest fishing fleet in Europe that is launched from a beach, which is known as the Stade. The Castle built by William the Conqueror but now in ruins is at the top of West Hill and offers wonderful views of the area and Channel. The steepest funicular railway in Britain takes passengers from the Old Town up to the Castle.
Opened in March 2012, the award-winning Jerwood Gallery sits next to the fishing beach in Hastings’ historic Old Town. Open Tuesday to Sunday, the gallery is home to the Jerwood Collection of 20th and 21st century art and a varied temporary exhibition programme showcasing the best of modern and contemporary British art.
There are many other attractions in Hastings and St Leonards On Sea, both architectural and cultural.

The town hosts several events throughout the year, which include the Hastings Half Marathon, the Jack in the Green Festival, Hastings Beer Festival, Coastal Currents and the Old Town Carnival
