The Property

This end-terrace Victorian property is in the heart of Hastings' Old Town, close to all the activities and only a two minute walk from the beach. This Hastings cottage is set in a cul-de-sac of period cottages around a communal lawn, with stone steps directly into the High Street where shops, restaurants and lively pubs can be found. This Hastings cottage is just a five minute walk from the funfair and amusement parks, crazy golf courses, the Jerwood Gallery, through the streets where Foyle's War was filmed. Completely renovated, this cottage in Hastings offers a large sitting room with huge cream leather sofa and wall-mounted plasma TV, and a fully fitted, well-equipped kitchen to the rear of the room, with stylish worktops separating these two areas beautifully. Behind the kitchen is a dining room, with patio doors which fold back, opening up the entire wall so visitors to this Hastings cottage can step straight out onto the patio balcony. Views from here are down over a Memorial garden and into the high street, where many of the annual parades pass through. From the dining room a staircase leads down to two king-size double bedrooms, both with feature windows in the style of the Victorian stables which used to be here. There is also a family shower room on this lower ground floor. On the first floor is the large master bedroom, and a twin bedroom with views over East Hill and the Old Town. There is a family bathroom on this floor, with freestanding double-ended bath. The cottage has solid wood flooring throughout, including on both staircases, which also have wood handrails and toughened glass side panels, allowing lots of light to flow through into the other rooms. With underfloor heating in the ground floor rooms and gas central heating on the first floor, ethernet points in each bedroom for visitors' own laptops, and use of an iMac and printer, this Hastings cottage offers modern comforts with wonderful period surroundings. This Hastings cottage is sure to appeal to families and couples who want to be at the very centre of this historic coastal town.

About the location

HASTINGS

Battle 6 miles; Rye 12 miles.

The large historic town of Hastings offers a great mix of interesting places to visit, and is comprised of three parts, joined by the promenade. On one side is the Old Town, with narrow streets or 'twittens', attractive houses, Shipwreck and Fisherman's museums, wonderful tall black net huts, a fresh fish market, seafood restaurants and cafés. In the middle there is a contemporary shopping centre and on the other side is St Leonards on Sea with its fashionable Norman Road with antique and vintage shops, art galleries, examples of Burton's architecture (of Kew Gardens and London Zoo fame), Marine Court Art Deco flats designed in the shape of the HMS Queen Mary, and the remains of the Amsterdam, which is visible at low tide at Bulverhythe. West Hill in Hastings is home to the Smugglers Adventure and Pelham Beach, and East Hill offers the Hastings Country Park, 660 acres of ancient woodlands, grasslands and heathlands crossing five miles over cliffs and rugged terrain, plus East Hill can also be reached by taking the 'lift', the steepest funicular railway in Britain. Whilst exploring Hastings, visit The Stade and watch fishermen land their catch, plus why not take a trip to Blue Reef Aquarium and the remains of Hastings Castle? Pevensey Castle, dating from the 4th century, and the first Norman Church are twelve miles away. Further afield enjoy the NT properties of Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst and Scotney Castle, the cinque port of Rye, the abbey at Battle or the beach and dunes at Camber Sands.
