An exceptional and substantial double fronted detached home located in a highly sought-after residential enclave, and close to the Hastings Historic Old Town. This five-bedroom house enjoys a tranquil setting at the end of an unadopted road and has wonderful gardens sweeping around the property.

As you approach the property there is a large paved parking area providing off road parking for several vehicles, which then leads to an attractive walled courtyard and lawn. You enter the property into a spacious entrance hall and to one side you will find the family living room with wood flooring, fireplace and patio doors which open out to the courtyard. The living room also leads into the study.

On the other side of the entrance hall is the dining room, again with patio doors leading to the lawn area of the garden. To the rear is a stunning and naturally lit fitted kitchen/breakfast room with dual aspect windows and patio doors leading to the rear garden.

Upstairs you will find the master bedroom which has impressive views out to the front and rear garden and benefits from a contemporary fitted en-suite shower room. To the front are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with wonderful roll top bath and walk in shower cubicle. On the rear side of the first floor are another two double bedrooms and a separate contemporary show room.

To the exterior of the property is a mature landscaped garden sweeping around the house. The stunning gardens are a delight with a wonderful lawn area bordered with well stocked shrubbery and plants giving bursts of colour throughout the year. The separate paved sun terraces are perfect for entertaining and there is a raised secluded wooded area surrounding the garden with pathways interconnecting each area of the garden.

The Old Town is a short walk away and is a unique place with artist open houses running throughout Hastings in the spring months along with summer fairs and street parties. Looking for an evening out? Old Town and St Leonards have great local pubs serving good food (try The Crown, Dragon Bar, Wine Shed, St Clements, St Leonard and Half Man Half Burger). Excellent local shops including Penbuckles and Judges serve the best coffee and scrumptious food. 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.

Seven years after opening on the Hastings seafront, Jerwood Gallery will relaunch in the Summer 2019 as Hastings Contemporary - a new, independent, modern and contemporary art gallery for the South East.

There are many other attractions in Hastings and St Leonards On Sea, both architectural and cultural. The fantastic Hastings pier (recently awarded pier of the year) hosts numerous live gigs and shows and is a wonderful place to visit. 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.
