  • Enjoy your own cinema experience with 6ft projector screen, Apple TV and sound system
  • Dine alfresco in the courtyard or snuggle up next to the wood burner
Property code: 49955

Located in the heart of the popular Hastings Old Town, the restaurants, antique shops, and cafes of the High Street are just a short walk away. The award-winning Hastings Contemporary Gallery and iconic fishing huts, from where you can buy the latest catch, are a five-minute stroll. Take a trip on the East Hill funicular railway which takes you up to the spectacular views from Hastings County Park, and a visit to Smugglers Adventure, nestled just behind the house, gives a flavour of Hastings' past. Slightly further afield are many historic castles and gardens to enjoy such as Bodiam Castle, Great Dixter House and Gardens, or Herstmonceux Castle.

From the entrance gate, take the steps up to the front garden terrace, through the front door, which guides you through the elegant reception hall to the lounge of this lavish house. A fun and spacious place for entertaining, boasting a fireplace with flame-effect gas fire, comfortable sofas and a 6ft projector screen with Apple TV, and a Sonos sound system. On this floor is also a handy separate WC. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where there is a dining room which is light and bright with an elegant mid-century table and chairs that comfortably seat 12 guests. You'll also find a wood burner here for chillier days. Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen with a butler sink, range style oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. An archway leads into a further storage area beyond with a second sink area and ample storage space for supplies. A door from the kitchen leads out into the courtyard area. There is also a separate WC. Stairs from the main hallway lead up to the first floor where there is the master bedroom with a sumptuous super-king-size bed, armchairs for relaxing where you can admire the sea view and a decadent en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath, large walk-in shower, WC and chaise longue. Stairs wind their way up to the second floor where there is a second super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made into a twin on request). This room also has a beautiful roll-top bath positioned in the bedroom below the window where you can watch the world go by whilst having a long hot soak; there is also an en-suite WC. On this floor, there is a further king-size bedroom and a shower room with a shower and WC. A final climb to the third floor takes you to a further super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom, (which can be made into a twin on request), a bunk bedroom and a separate shower room with shower and WC.

Outside, the garden has two different areas to enjoy. There is a terraced area outside the front of the property which is a sun trap for most of the day, and, at the rear of the property, is a cosy cooling courtyard garden with fernery, a water feature, and a large table and chairs with overhead lighting providing the perfect retreat on a hot summer's day for dining outside.

A very beautiful house which is extremely well equipped. The only downside is the lack of parking outside. The position within Hastings was excellent and the comfort of the beds etc was very good.

The house is beautiful, the detail that has gone into the design is so apparent and runs through every floor. It pretty much has everything for 10 people which was great for us as a family holiday and the location is excellent. Fair warning to any of those that struggle with steps and hills, we walked the surrounding hills every day to the main towRead moren and then lots of steps in the house, especially to the top floor!

What a great house for a social gathering. It's so quirky and colourful that you can't help but have a good time. We even had some sunshine despite the appauling forecast. It is well kitted out in terms of comfy beds and great showers and all mod cons in the kitchen too. It's a long way up that top floor but the views are amazing from the first floRead moreor and up. I can recommend Bells bike hire in Hastings and we had the most amazing meal at Farmyard in St Leonards. Thanks for a great stay! Hide

I stayed here with my family and friends for my 30th birthday and it was a true delight. The pictures you see online are amazing but it doesnt truly capture the essence of the home. It was truly stunning, very grand and cozy at the same time. The kitchen is fully equipped and was lovely to cook in. The secret garden in the back was lovely to hang oRead moreut it. So many wonderful quirks everywhere, I honestly dont have a bad word to say. Hide
