A light filled mid-century two-bedroom flat with remarkable uninterrupted views of the sea
This spacious purpose-built flat has been thoughtfully refurbished to the highest standard by a local designer. The flat now has a completely new kitchen, a new bathroom and has been re-wired with a new fuse board. The flat is on the fourth floor of a small mid-century block directly overlooking the sea on Marina in St Leonards and serviced with a newly refurbished lift. The property now offers a new owner a perfect trouble-free seaside home close to the increasingly popular cafes and independent shops of St Leonards and near to good transport links and the historic Hastings Old Town. Being purpose built the flat benefits from particularly good sound insultation and excellent heat insulation – a good point to think about with rising utility bills. The rooms are well-proportioned throughout and a well thought through floor plan leads to an easy flow within the flat.
The hallway has original parquet flooring and good storage. The hallway leads to a newly fitted kitchen with quartz marble worktops and new German appliances: dishwasher, fan assisted oven, gas hob and larder fridge with separate freezer. The washing machine has been housed in the storage area in the bathroom to keep the kitchen looking sleek and integrated and to reduce noise while cooking and eating in the kitchen. The colourway and tiles have been chosen to highlight the mid- century design. There are views from the kitchen of green space with trees and wildlife.
The bathroom is also newly fitted with built in storage. There’s a separate WC. The living area is flooded with light from its south facing aspect with incredible sea views down the coast towards Eastbourne and Beachy Head. This space is further enhanced by a good-sized covered balcony giving year-round access to outdoor space and a constant connection to the changing light of the sea and the sky. The sea views are uninterrupted and a perfect place to sit and watch sunrises and sunsets year-round.
The south facing double bedroom has the same sea views and good built-in storage. The second bedroom is also a good size and would make an ideal bedroom or workspace for those working from home.
The block is in good repair with attractive and well-maintained common parts. The management company has an attentive and responsive approach. The flat has a share of Freehold and a long lease. Maintenance costs are approximately £2100 per annum. Ground rent is £36 per annum. There’s free car parking on adjacent streets and an electric car charging point opposite in the car park which also provides very reasonably priced parking for guests.
Properties with views of the sea are at a premium in this increasingly popular town. A re-evaluation of this fascinating and historical seaside town in recent years has seen several artists, film makers, designers and style leaders moving to the town. There’s a tangible shift in the style and quality of the bars, restaurants and independent retailers opening their doors in both St Leonards and nearby Hastings.
Close by Norman Road houses art galleries, an independent cinema, cafes, a high-end seafood restaurant, artists’ workshops, an internationally acclaimed photographic gallery and some top-notch antiques stores.
Hastings Old Town can be reached via a walk along the seafront. In around 15 minutes.
St Leonards Warrior Square train station is a ten-minute walk from the property with trains to London Charing X, Waterloo, London Bridge, Cannon Street or Victoria. Journey time around one hour 40 minutes with some faster trains during the day. There are also trains to Eastbourne, Brighton and Rye.
