West Hill Villa is considered to occupy one of the most commanding and elevated positions within Hastings historic Old Town, enjoying extensive far-reaching views over the Old Town itself and across the English Channel.
This detached and secluded property was built into the sandstone bedrock of the West Hill in the mid 19th century, and is ideally situated within walking distance of the Old Town with its restaurants, shops and sea front as well as Hastings town centre with its amenities and mainline railway station connecting to London, Brighton and Ashford.
There is versatile accommodation arranged over five floors, with each level providing individual character with both period and contemporary features and with all the principal rooms enjoying inspirational views across the town and the sea. In the lower part of the house the open plan sitting room/kitchen and dining area is situated where the old Hastings Pottery used to be and opens up into a sandstone archway and into vaulted caves, which have to be seen to be appreciated. Another spectacular feature is the 90ft glass house vinery, which houses a variety of exotic plants, grapevines, and banana trees, as well as a fish pool.
The gardens extend across the width of the rear elevation with terrace, formal lawned areas and an established terraced vegetable garden, with a raised seating area looking out to sea. In addition there is a garage accessed from Exmouth Place. Viewing strictly by prior appointment with the sole agents, Just Property.
