5 Bedroom, House | Ocklynge Road, Old Town, Eastbourne

An exceptionally fine period house with beautifully appointed and spacious family accommodation in the heart of historic Old Town.

Believed to date from the early 19th century and listed Grade II some of the features of the house suggest an earlier date. The elegant and tastefully improved accommodation retains a particularly fine Georgian style staircase rising from a magnificent entrance hall with flagstone floor to a large galleried landing. There is a charming and large courtyard garden to the rear and principal rooms command a view to the picturesque Parish Church of St Marys, the Old Parsonage and toward scenic downland to the west. We are advised that this impressive property is available with no onward chain.
