Quarry Lodge Sold Off market
A handsome 5/6 bedroom home with sea views, private garden and utterly secluded position. The history of Quarry Lodge is very much linked to the story of how St Leonards came into existence as a fashionable seaside town – this house was built by Decimus Burton for the Quarry Master who was overseeing the quarrying of the stones which built much of St Leonards. The quarry is now an elegant public park and Quarry Lodge is an example of the very best of the early Victorian spirit combined with a lingering regard for Georgian proportions and scale.
