Description Built on the site of the former seaside home of Sir Ian Colquhoun of Luss, this lovely development called St John's Ridge was built by Gladedale Homes and consists of only 16 detached properties. The location has become extremely sought after because of the far reaching views and tranquil setting interspersed with mature trees and established Rhododendrons, all on the edge of St Helens Woods. Most of the land around the development was designated as a local nature reserve. The property itself is set at the end of the cul-de-sac, on a beautiful private spot well back from the road, with amazing distant sea views towards Beachy Head at the rear.
The house itself is decorated throughout to a high standard and is amazingly spacious with a wide bright hallway and lovely staircase leading up to the galleried landing on the first floor. For formal entertaining, the dining room is of a good size with space big enough for a family sized table and chairs and has a pleasant garden facing aspect. The sitting room is light and bright with opening patio doors leading into the large conservatory which has far reaching sea views to the rear. In the kitchen, new Trend Black Star stone work surfaces and kicker boards have been added recently and provide a modern contrast to the replaced white shaker style door and drawer front units. There are integrated Neff appliances all remaining. A useful utility room provides access to both the rear and to the garage. For flexible use you have a study/snug which could be an additional bedroom for a family member.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has an ensuite, and there are another four double bedrooms one of which is currently used as the second study, plus the family bathroom. All of the bedrooms except bedroom 5 come with built in storage and the rear facing rooms have the beautiful views over to the Channel and Beachy Head.
For parking there is a large driveway to the front with parking for several cars and this leads to the double garage complete with one electric and one fixed door to the front. A path leads to the front door and covered porch. You have side access to the garden. To the rear are carefully landscaped gardens with a large raised, decked terrace, established mature trees, and beautifully kept flower and shrub borders leading to a lawn, perfect for an evening drink.
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with over 100 acres of conservation woodland and parkland to the rear, the development was built to be one of the most sought after locations within Hastings. The seaside and coastal attractions are close by, along with the Old Town and the main town, supermarkets, schools and the hospital are all within reach. Close by are the towns of Historic Battle and St Leonards, as well as Bexhill-On-Sea. For sports you have Sailing at Bewl Water, Golf at Cooden Valley, local horse riding facilities and both Rye Harbour and Eastbourne Marina are within a short drive away.
Transport links are accessible by road or rail, with the ring road to the A21 to London and Sevenoaks close by and train links from Hastings or Battle take you into central London for commuting.
