Stunning first floor two bedroom apartment in a quiet location with elevated sea views in the distance.
Situated at the top of Kenilworth Road and in close proximity to Pevensey Road, The Mount, and St Leonards on Sea gardens, this property is in an ideal location to allow one to walk to St Leonards and the seafront, whilst being in a sought after residential location. Both externally and internally, the building and apartment have been renovated with faithfully restored original features, including cornicing, high ceilings, sash windows, and wood stained flooring. There is a 999 year lease and share of the freehold. It is being sold Chain Free. Viewings strictly by appointment.
St Leonards on Sea, dubbed Shoreditch by the Sea by some, has a rapidly gentrifying centre with not least the fabulous Kino cinema and restaurant, The Shop on the Corner, and Bella Vista, along with a great selection of cafes and restaurants along Kings Road, London Road, and the Marina, making this 'the place to be on the south coast'. Marine Court, the iconic art deco building, trendy shops and eateries to choose from, and the expansive beach and coastline on the other, this area is a fantastic all year round location.

A magnificent, light sitting room with Victorian original features, including high ceilings, cornicing, and a feature bay window.

Decorative Balcony - It is part of the freehold and so it is not sold as an intrinsic legal part of the apartment. The current owner may use it, but it is not structurally tested for load bearing. Should you wish to own the balcony within the title deed, you may request to do so in writing via solicitors, for an additional annual fee. This is so that the maintenance of the balcony is incorporated within the building rather than the owner of the specific first floor flat.
