Situated in the original part of St Leonards on Sea, we are delighted to present this stunning Victorian period house spread over four floors with three double bedrooms and its own large private courtyard. Beautifully restored original features including exposed wood floorboards, full height twin brick fireplaces, and many nooks and crannies throughout the property, the overall size and potential for creating a personalised space makes this a fantastic home.
Within a stone's throw to the thriving local St Leonards on Sea and seafront, as well as 0.3 mile to Warrior Square station with mainline services to London Charing Cross, Brighton, and Ashford, the location of this property is ideal for commuters and locals looking for a large characterful house. Mercatoria, once the Victorian shopping area and with a handful of National Schools since the 1830s; this nostalgic street lies atop the infamous Norman Road, with its eclectic range of art galleries, boutiques, and brocantes. A few doors along from this house is the Michelin awarded restaurant, St Clement's; landscaped St Leonards Gardens; and popular Mercatoria Antiques shop; which all encompass the overall dynamic buzz of St Leonards. St Leonards on Sea, dubbed Shoreditch by the Sea by some, has a rapidly gentrifying centre with not least the fabulous Kino cinema and restaurant, The Shop on the Corner, and Cafe Gratitude, along with a great selection of cafes and restaurants along Kings Road, London Road, and the Marina, making this 'the place to be on the south coast'. Under Marine Court, the iconic art deco building, with trendy shops and eateries on one side, and the expansive beach and coastline on the other, this area is a fantastic all year round location.
