A rare Grade II Listed Victorian semi-detached villa designed by Decimus Burton and built for Lady Elphinstone in 1858. Located in the heart of the Burton St Leonard's conservation area, enjoying an enviable position overlooking communal gardens with views to the sea. This fine property is a two minute stroll to the shops on Norman Road and the picturesque St. Leonard's Gardens.
This spacious family home has accommodation over four floors, all in excellent condition and offering flexible living space to suit most needs. Currently the lower ground floor offers a double bedroom, family room, storage room, shower and utility room - this floor could easily be used as a self contained apartment if required. The top three floors of this light and airy home provide another five bedrooms, two reception rooms and two bathrooms - all offering great proportions and with sea views from each of these floors. The house is approached via a private road with its own front garden. It also has a rear garden which is landscaped with a good sized lawn. It has mature boundaries with a terrace, including a sunken garden in the back which also houses a fully insulated home office.
The property benefits from The Lawn communal garden which is overlooked from the front of the house and gives a great extra green space to enjoy. This is a property not to be missed and internal viewings are highly recommend to appreciate this piece of 19th Century history!
What the Owner says:
We have loved this house and location and it has worked really well with our family - it offers easy access to the heart of St Leonard's including Norman Road which has a number of antique shops, a kino cinema, restaurants and art galleries.
The mainline station, St Leonard's Warrior Square, is a five minute walk in one direction with the seafront a five minute walk in the other direction. The views are fabulous and having the extra garden space has been fantastic!
