4 Bedroom, House | Vicarage Drive, Eastbourne

A remarkably spacious 4/5 bedroom family house of Edwardian character with a glorious 100' south westerly walled garden and outstanding views toward the downs.

The property has been in the present family ownership for many years and has been substantially and sensitively improved retaining much of its original elegant and delightful period character. The unusually large second floor bedroom will easily be returned to its original two bedroom format if required and the generous proportions of the rest of the accommodation are ideal for a large active family. The garden is one of the loveliest we have seen for some time. Only an internal inspection will convey the individual charm and appeal of this impressive property.
