5 Bedroom, House | Torfield Road, Eastbourne

A truly magnificent detached five bedroom house of impressive character reputed to have been designed by Eastbourne's most famous architect Peter Stonham.

Commanding southerly views over Eastbourne towards the Downs the accommodation retains much of its wonderful Arts & Crafts period character and has been substantially and tastefully improved in recent years with a new roof and is luxuriously equipped throughout. This is a rare opportunity and an inspection is highly recommended.
