About the Property

This attractive bay fronted Edwardian house sits idyllically in the Blacklands area of Hastings within walking distance of local schools and directly on a bus route connecting to the surrounding locations as well as Hastings town centre with its mainline railway station with connections to London and Ashford International. Internally the property offers deceptive and comfortable living accommodation whilst retaining many of its original features such as fireplaces, cornices, ceiling rose as well well as matching mouldings to the ceilings of its principle rooms. The accommodation offers an entrance lobby, deep hallway affording access to a bay fronted lounge with feature wood burning stove, separate dining room, fitted kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility space and pantry as well as an underhouse cellar. To the first floor the landing is beautifully illuminated from the loft space above and affords access to three double bedrooms with the master enjoying a balcony terrace to the front and a family bathroom/wc. Externally to the rear there is a well landscape garden with a decked terrace to the immediate rear, a further area of decking with lawn and further raised decking to the far end. The property benefits from a wealth of character, beautiful townscape views onto the West Hill from the rear, double glazing, gas fired central heating and the roof was replaced approximately three years ago. Properties of this calibre within this location are rarely available to the open market and early internal viewings are considered essential.
