----- Virtual Tour Available on Request ----- Spring Mead is a substantial and beautifully presented, architect designed house. The house offers exceptionally spacious and well-arranged accommodation over two floors, which is flooded with natural light and has been designed so that the principal rooms take advantage of the wonderful views towards the sea. The property offers the added flexibility of being able to utilise the south-eastern end of the house as a two storey interconnecting annexe, with its own separate entrance from the entrance courtyard.

Features of note within the house include the superb 40' drawing room which has breath-taking views over the town to the sea.

The drawing room has a feature central fireplace and access to both a wide balcony and terrace, giving a seamless connection between the house and views.

Other features include a well-fitted kitchen, again with exceptional views, and a terracotta tile floor. Two wide arches lead through from the kitchen to the spacious breakfast room which has a matching terracotta tile floor. In addition, there is a lovely sitting room also with a fireplace, a generous dining room and a large study. The reception rooms are ideally arranged for modern family living and entertaining.

The reception rooms are complemented and well-balanced by a principal suite, guest suite, three further bedroom – all with either ensuite bathrooms or shower rooms – and a play room/bedroom 6. Attached to one end of the house and approached from either the garden or the principal suite is a beautiful heated indoor swimming pool. Adjacent to the pool is a shower/cloakroom and plant room.

Planning Outline planning permission was granted for the demolition of the existing house and the construction of a new building housing 17 one and two bedroom apartments. This consent was granted by Eastbourne Borough Council under application ref PC181058, dated 29th October 2018. Prospective purchasers are advised that they should make their own enquiries of Eastbourne Borough Council.

Outside

Spring Mead is approached from the no-through road via an electrically operated wooden entrance gate set within a brick garden wall. The gate opens onto the property's private entrance drive which is bordered on one side by a lawn and leads down to the house with a double garage to one side. Adjacent to the entrance drive is a sheltered entrance courtyard from which the front door leads into the house.

The principal garden lies to the rear of the house and is a particular feature of the property having been beautifully planted and landscaped over the years. Immediately to the rear of the house is a wide paved terrace providing the ideal vantage point from which to overlook the garden and admire the glorious views. Beyond the terrace, the garden is laid to lawn, is bordered by various well-stocked borders and includes a box parterre. The garden provides a lovely setting for this outstanding edge of town property. About 0.75 acre.

Situation

Spring Mead lies in a superb elevated position on the south-western edge of Eastbourne, just a few moments from the South Downs National Park and a stones throw from the Meads 'village area' with its selection of shops for everyday needs. The town centre is within easy reach. The Victorian seafront promenade with theatre complex, Towner Art Gallery and International Lawn Tennis Centre at Devonshire Park are also close by.

The town has an excellent range of shopping, entertainment and sporting facilities, including three golf courses, one of the largest marinas in Europe and a David Lloyd Sports Centre. The historic county town of Lewes is about 16 miles to the west and the colourful city of Brighton & Hove is 28 miles distant.
