The Admiral Benbow is a distinctive and individual property with direct sea views and situated in the heart of the Mercatoria area of St Leonards on Sea and with an interesting history as it used to be a public house, a staging post for coaches on their way to Folkestone and formally known as Saxon Shades. Built in circa 1831, the property has been renovated over recent years and now provides an excellent opportunity for both home and income.
There is a sales/entertaining area on the ground floor, which has commercial license usage and would suit a variety of uses. The accommodation is very versatile and is currently arranged over four floors to include three/four bedrooms and a fabulous function room where the first person to play snooker was the world champion at the time and a unique Victorian bar in the corner. There is a fitted kitchen and other rooms of unique design. There is lapsed planning permission (HS/FA/14/00317/EC) for alternations to the roof to create a spacious roof terrace.
Situated just off the sea front in a vibrant conservation area being close to amenities, bus routes, shops, restaurants and Warrior Square mainline railway station. Further benefits include parquet flooring, a new gas heating system, rewired, fire detection system, thermal & acoustic insulation, basement workshops, panelling and window shutters.
