The tranquil location close to Eastbourne’s historic Old Town offers easy access to the South Downs National Park, with trails up to Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters for exhilarating cliff-top walks, while the attractions and facilities of Eastbourne are also within easy reach.
This unique holiday home has an ‘upside-down’ design, with the living space on the top floor (which is also the entry floor as the house is set on a slope) and the bedrooms downstairs.
The entrance from street level opens into a wide, welcoming hallway which leads to a wonderfully spacious dining lounge, with captivating views over the countryside through huge floor-to-ceiling windows.
The dining table comfortably seats eight, and there’s a large L-shaped sofa and additional comfy seating with the perfect vantage point to enjoy the scenery and relax – or step out on to the balcony, which overlooks the swimming pool and garden. A TV and DVD player are available if you can tear yourself away from the view.
The separate kitchen is well equipped with fridge-freezer, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and a breakfast table for informal snacks or to catch up on your emails. A utility room houses a washing machine and there’s a toilet/cloakroom on this level for easy access.
Step downstairs and there is a second sitting room, with an additional TV and games provided – ideal if the children want their own space or you can’t agree what to watch!
The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and an entire wall of fitted wardrobes – so no need to skimp on your packing! There is another large double room and a large twin, while the smaller fourth twin bedroom is reserved for children – so the house can accommodate up to six adults and two children.
The main family bathroom has an air of grandeur, with a corner bath and a separate walk in shower, plus there is a second shower room.
Outside the garden is attractive and well maintained, with patio furniture and sun loungers available for your enjoyment. Parents are asked to supervise children at all times – while the pool is fenced off for safety, there is also a laburnum tree in the grounds, which must not be touched as the plant and fruit are poisonous.
There is driveway parking for several cars, plus unrestricted parking in the street. WiFi is provided, along with towels and linen, and a travel cot and/or high chair is available on request. Parties are not permitted at this property.
Eastbourne Old Town offers atmospheric history, with a 12th century church with Norman elements offering food for the soul, whilst The Lamb pub (also dating from the 12th century) provides more practical sustenance and conviviality.
Waitrose supermarket is close by for any necessary supplies or perhaps delights for a picnic you could enjoy in Gildredge Park or Motcombe Gardens.
Parents with children should please be aware of the potential hazards before booking – as well as the swimming pool and the laburnum tree in the garden, the staircase within the property is an original 1970s ‘ranch style’ design, with horizontal planks that could be tempting to climb (see photos in gallery). Parents are able to close doors to the hallway to prevent small children reaching this stairway without them knowing.
