An enchanting quintessentially English beachside residence with magnificent sea views located on one of Sussex’s most prestigious private estates within 90 minutes of Central London. Originally constructed as a signalling station and owned by the Navy during the Napoleonic Wars, this exquisite brick and flint semi-detached residence has been meticulously renovated and retains a magnitude of period features. Boasting expansive sea views from the first floor and being located within metres of the beach, this distinguished property offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms including a statement kitchen/dining area which is ideal for entertaining. Located in a tranquil coastal setting on the exclusive Kingston Gorse Private Estate, this property is perfectly appointed and is within walking distance of the many amenities, shops, eateries, wine bars and pubs in the villages of East Preston and Ferring. This spectacular property proficiently integrates its imposing eighteenth century period features with the contemporary imperatives of luxury living. The formal sitting room occupies an enviable western aspect and, with a commanding open brick fireplace and exposed wall and ceiling timbers, accentuates the property’s immense cultural heritage. The adjacent family room enjoys a dual aspect and benefits from attractive views to the garden. The resplendent open plan kitchen/dining room provides an exceptional area for entertaining with a statement island, superlative appliances, a large central roof lantern and fully retractable corner bifolding doors to the south-facing courtyard. There is also a chic cloakroom, a study, and a large bedroom suite with two sets of French doors to the garden and an indulgent ensuite shower room, on the ground floor. The principal suite is accessed from its own private staircase and boasts magnificent views to the sea, a triple aspect, a vaulted ceiling, and a stylish ensuite-shower room. There are two further bedrooms, one with a brick fireplace, exposed timbers and a dual aspect offering direct sea views, and a lavish family bathroom, on the first floor. The landscaped garden with an array of mature shrubs/planting offers complete seclusion and benefits from a large terrace which is ideal for alfresco living. A gate in the striking flint wall leads to a short lane directly to the beach from where a host of water sports can be enjoyed.
