  • Stylish Victorian townhouse opposite the sea, perfect for family holidays
  • Great base for exploring the south coast
  • Private courtyard garden for quiet relaxation
Property code: BT055

This Victorian townhouse blends period charm with contemporary features, all in an unbeatable location overlooking Hastings beach. The enclosed decked area makes a great spot to relax after a day at the beach, and it's the perfect base to explore the Kent and Sussex coastlines.

This imposing five-storey Victorian townhouse is situated right on the seafront in St Leonards on Sea. St Leonard’s is the twin town to next door Hastings, but has a distinctly different atmosphere, with its independent shops and small cafes and tearooms. Hastings is a more thriving town, with high street shops and a bustling sea front, as well as its Norman castle, built of course by William the Conqueror.

On entering the property, arriving into the impressive hallway, you immediately get a sense of the classic grandeur of this house. To the right of the front door is a spacious bedroom, with double bed and small TV. Next door, the stunning bathroom, featuring luxurious roll-top bath and separate walk-in shower. From the ground floor, there are steep concrete stairs leading to the lower ground floor kitchen. More than just a kitchen it is a relaxing space in its own right, with a glossy black island with seating for three, large TV and a large dining table. The kitchen has everything you could want and more, with America-style fridge dispensing cold water, ice and crushed iced and two sinks built into a stone work surface. There is a huge Aga-style oven, along with microwave, juicer, dishwasher and washing machine. Returning to the hallway, take the stairs up to the first floor and the grand lounge, with two large sofas (one of which can be used as a sofa bed), woodburner, TV and DVD player. This room has beautiful sea views. At the top of the next flight of stairs is a bedroom with bunk beds and a further room with zip-and-link beds which can be made up as either a king-size or twin. The bathroom on this floor is simply gorgeous, with bath and separate shower, and two sinks. The bathroom enjoys views over the sea. Steep steps lead to the master bedroom suite, with its king-size bed, built-in wardrobes, en-suite WC and stunning balcony with glass balustrade, offering spectacular sea views.

Outside the property benefits from a decked area, with relaxing seating, making it an ideal space for further entertaining.

Old Chelsea We had a fantastic stay at Old Chelsea, the house is well furnished and comfortable. The weather was great which helped, but there was enough space that poor weather wouldn't ha e been a problem. Hopefully we will return at some point...

Absolutely lovely house with almost everything you need (a few basic cooking/kitchen things were missing). Fab location for local beaches and Hastings town. Very comfy beds and lovely bedrooms. Only disappointment was that the property wasnt particularly clean on arrival and we ended up cleaning the kitchen surfaces and dining table ourselves. OutdRead moreoor space was also too dirty to use. The inside of some of the bedroom furniture also needed a wipe before putting clothes in due to hairs and dust. Hide

I booked the house for a family get-together and everyone agreed that it had been an inspired choice. The ground floor bedroom and bathroom in particular were brilliant for the grandparents as the house has 5 levels. My wife and I were in the top floor bedroom with it's brilliant views over the Channel (being January, it was a bit nippy to benefit Read morefrom the balcony). The kitchen on the basement level is very well equipped and had everything we needed. I'd write more if there was space. 10/10 Hide

This house was very clean and warm and comfortable. It was quite a way from Hastings (40 minute walk to the Old Town), the view of the sea was lovely.

Wonderful views and a great location on the sea front. Old Chelsea is a spacious period property that has been well refurbished with a fabulous kitchen-diner and living room, along with spacious bedrooms and all across multiple floors.
