5 Bedroom, House | St Johns Road, Meads, Eastbourne

SOLD SUBJECT TO CONTRACT - SIMILAR PROPERTIES URGENTLY REQUIRED FOR DISAPPOINTED BUYERS - An unusually spacious and extremely elegant detached house of great character in the heart of Meads.

Reputed to have been originally built in about 1939 for Louis G Ford, an eminent local business family, the property has been substantially refurbished by our clients in recent years. Retaining much of its delightful character and enhanced by further improvements the property retains fine features such as handsome oak herringbone parquet flooring. The remarkably spacious and boarded loft space has been used in the past as an art studio and games room and offers potential, subject to consent, for further accommodation. The garden, extending to a depth of about 100', is walled and provides an ideal setting for family use. The property is available for early vacant possession with no onward chain.
