Villa Angeletto

Situated in a superb, elevated position within the Conservation Area and in close proximity to The Royal Hotel, this is a quiet and sought after area with easy access to the beach and coastal path. The town’s amenities are just a short level walk away with a good range of bars, restaurants and shops. The Esplanade that runs along the Blue Flag sandy beach has further eateries and a fish market whilst the nearby Botanic Gardens thrive in the area’s great micro-climate. The surrounding area has superb walks amongst a rugged coastline with numerous sandy bays and downland views.

Constructed in the 1830’s as a private house, the property has an entry in Pevsner’s Buildings of England series. The top floor was added around 1900 and for much of the 20th century, it was a doctor’s surgery and home before becoming a hotel/guest house. The accommodation extends over four floors with the current owners having sensitively and comprehensively refurbished the ground floor and first floors, transforming it from a guest house into a stunning home. These floors have been reconfigured to provide particularly light and spacious accommodation to make the most of the views whilst retaining original features and high ceilings. New hot water and central heating systems have been installed, (except at the lower ground floor level) and the majority of the property has been rewired.

The ground floor now provides a superb drawing room and panelled sitting room, both benefitting from the views, along with a large kitchen/breakfast room, south facing conservatory and utility room. The first floor comprises a luxurious principal bedroom suite with dressing room and two separate shower rooms along with two studies. The top floor, whilst unmodernised, provides four bedroom suites, three of which benefit from the southerly sea views.

The lower ground floor remains unconverted but, when used as the guest house, provided the kitchen and owner’s living accommodation. It offers great potential for a self-contained apartment with its own access to the front. The current owners have also discreetly installed a lift shaft leading to all floors ready to take a lift if a future owner requires it. The property is not listed, has UPVC double glazing throughout and provides a great opportunity to complete the renovation to suit a future owner’s requirements.

OUTSIDE
To the front of the property is a driveway providing parking for three cars in addition to which is a block-paved area of parking running along the front of the property. In all, the property extends to approximately quarter of an acre with the principal gardens being to the south of the house and forming a stunning feature. Immediately adjacent to the conservatory is a level lawned garden providing a superb outdoor seating area in which truly panoramic views of the Channel can be enjoyed as well as views towards the beach itself. The gardens slope down the hill and are planted with a superb variety of flowering shrubs and specimen trees with various paths meandering towards stone steps to a gated entrance at the bottom of the garden. This leads onto the public footpath to provide easy access to the seafront and coastal path.
