Exquisite Home, Location & Views

Built 100+ years ago for Eastbourne's first mayor, this gorgeous home offers sunshine, privacy and panoramic harbour views. With original features lovingly conserved, modern renovations blend to meet today's busy lifestyle. Unfolding over two floors, there are four living rooms downstairs and four bedrooms upstairs. The outlook from each is stunning and there is a bathroom on each level. Wraparound verandahs, a flat lawn and extensively landscaped gardens provide wonderful outside living options. High studs, panelled ceilings, matai floors and perfectly scaled rooms inspire awe in all who visit. An internal access garage and off-street parking add practical convenience. The nearby beach, bush walking tracks and a vibrant local community contribute to the privilege of owning this property. Work commitments call the present owners to relocate overseas, and leave with sadness what they hoped would be their forever home. Could it be yours? Call me asap to view.
