Vamped up Victoriana

Built for fashionable visitors around 1900 when Bexhill became a hit among trendsetting Victorians, Newdigate House sits directly opposite the seafront less than 500 metres from the town’s destination landmark: the astonishing art deco masterpiece that is the De La Warr Pavilion.

And there lies an interesting parallel. The design of Newdigate House is effectively the template for the 1930s mansion blocks that are some of today’s most sought-after addresses, thus pioneering an enduring, timeless and enjoyable home lifestyle.

A plot to hatch

A surefire way of having a unique home that’s truly an expression of who you are and what you love, is to build your own. But sourcing the land, finding an architect and navigating the planning process can be a bit of a turn-off. So what if all that was out of the way?
