Royal Parade, Eastbourne


Guide price

Nearing the end of a comprehensive modernisation programme this exceptional seafront property is arranged as 15 letting rooms and a spacious owners flat. The ground floor reception/dining room runs full width at the front of the building and benefits from two seafront facing bays and a bar.

All the guest rooms have en-suite facilities and one has a superb balcony. One of the last projects to be undertaken is the amalgamation of Room 6 with an unused room to create generously proportioned accommodation with a private balcony. The owners have the use of the whole of the lower ground floor.

Prominently positioned in Royal Parade with a Council maintained flower bed to the front. The property enjoys close proximity to a range of attractions including the beach and promenade. To the west are bowling greens, The Redoubt Fortress and museum, tea rooms and pier. To the east are sailing, and angling clubs, Treasure Island Childrens playground with crazy golf, The Beach deck restaurant, Fort Fun and Prince's Park with childrens play area, boating lake and restaurant. Further afield are the Sovereign Centre Leisure Pool and Sovereign Harbour.

Eastbourne is undergoing a radical transformation with about £220m being invested right now. At the Devonshire Park complex about £55m has been invested in a new conference building, the refurbishment of two theatres & the Winter Garden, plus improved facilities for the International Tennis tournament.

On the Western Lawns a new iconic restaurant is being constructed at the Wish Tower, and within about five minutes' walk the town centre is being revamped with about 27 new shops, 7 new restaurants and a new cinema extension to the Beacon Centre nearing completion.

The public realm is also being re-invigorated with about £8.5m of new street works.
