Lovely 4 storey house - Hastings Old Town home swap
We live in a fantastic 4 storey terraced house which commands superb views over Hastings Old Town out across the fishing beach towards the English Channel.
We have a small, secluded rear garden which is ideal for al fresco eating. To the front there is a beautifully sunny terrace with amazing views out to sea, which is perfect for relaxing with a drink.
There are 3 double bedrooms all with double beds - two of which have incredible views across the fishing beach and out to the English Channel. The lounge is furnished with high quality retro style pieces and the feature window makes the most of the incredible views. The lounge has a wood burning stove and you are welcome to use the logs stored in the cave in the back garden. It also has Sky TV including Sky Sports and BT Sports subscription for in-house entertainment!
The bathroom has a large walk-in shower as well as a roll-top bath - and there is a utility room housing a washing machine and tumble drier.
The kitchen has handcrafted units, a red Smeg fridge freezer and a large kitchen table facing the veranda. Additionally there is a freezer in the back passage leading to the amazing garden which is up against a sandstone cliff. The cliff face contains original Victorian graffiti including a large depiction of London's Tower Bridge!
The house is conveniently located for exploring the many attractions in the area. It is a short drive or train journey to other local resorts such as Rye, Eastbourne and Brighton. There is also a regular train service to London which takes about an hour.
From the house itself a short walk leads you to the heart of Hastings Old Town with its many shops, galleries, antique yards and restaurants, and the beach with its unique fishing fleet. The beach itself is a great play area...lots of hunting for stones with holes in and making amazing sandcastles when the tide is out.
This is a fantastic, quirky family home, full of light and love, in a unique location with an individual style. A feature of the house are the colourful original paintings and prints that we have enjoyed collecting over the course of our lives - we hope you are as inspired by them as we are!
Please be aware we are up a steep hill - and you can't park directly outside the house as we are in one of the many Old Town 'twittens' - but we think that all adds to its distinctive nature!
