Located in one of St Leonards-on-Sea's most desirable and sought-after residential enclaves, the property is just minutes from Norman Road and Marina, which offer numerous restaurants and a vibrant foodie scene. The beach and promenade are moments away and Hastings town is a short stroll. Artist open houses run through the spring months, along with summer fairs, street parties and almost weekly festivals.
Looking for an evening out? Kino-Teatr, just five-minutes' walk from the apartment, houses an independent cinema, theatre, the Baker-Mamonova Gallery, bar and a Lebanese restaurant. It rubs shoulders with great local wine bars and award-winning pubs and restaurants (try the Wine Shed, The St Leonard and St Clements). Excellent local shops include Shop and Siren; there are many places specialising in vintage furniture/lighting and clothing on Kings Road and Norman Road. Superb cafés like Fika and Sea Kale serve great drinks and food, using locally sourced ingredients, including fish caught that day from the fishing beach and prize-winning world-class wines from the many vineyards nearby. St Leonards Warrior Square railway station is minutes away from the apartment, with direct links to London Charing Cross and Victoria (1hr, 30 mins) and Brighton (accessible within 50 mins), perfect for commuters.
Hastings has the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe, known as the Stade. The ruins of the castle built by William the Conqueror lie at the top of West Hill and offer wonderful views of the area and Channel. The steepest funicular railway in Britain takes passengers from the Old Town up to the castle. At the top of the East Hill funicular, situated near the fishing beach, is the Country Park, one of Hastings and St Leonards' many fine green spaces.
Opened in March 2012, the award-winning Jerwood Gallery sits next to the fishing beach in Hastings' historic Old Town. Home to a revolving selection of the Jerwood Collection's twentieth- and twenty-first century art, it also holds several major exhibitions a year, showcasing the best of modern art: recently Picasso's work from Lee Miller's nearby Farley Farm House and celebrated figurative artist Paula Rego's first major British exhibition in ten years were shown there. The Coastal Cultural Trail, which you can walk or bike, links the Jerwood to two acclaimed galleries, Bexhill's De La Warr Pavilion and Eastbourne's Towner Art Gallery.
There are many other attractions in Hastings and St Leonards-on-Sea, both architectural and cultural. The fantastic Hastings Pier (recently named Pier of the Year and winner of the highly prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize) hosts numerous live gigs and shows; it is an iconic place to visit, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and The Clash having played there. The town also hosts the Hastings Half Marathon, the Jack in the Green Festival, Hastings Beer Festival, Coastal Currents, the Old Town Carnival and three seafood festivals. This year it launches its first literary festival. All are within walking distance of the apartment.
A vibrant place to live, St Leonards-on-Sea has lovely architecture, historical and cultural resonance and boasts a beautiful open coastline.
