Traditionally Eastbourne has had a reputation for being a quiet, sleepy town characterised by its stunning costal views and picturesque countryside of Sussex Downs. While those features remain prominent, the area has begun to change perceptions in recent years to become one of the most sought after places to live in the south-east of England.
During the Victorian era Eastbourne began to quickly grow and the majority of the late period architecture managed to survive the heavy bombing experienced during World War II. The town itself is quite compact and easy to move around which makes it easy for house hunters to get a good idea of the available properties on offer.
To the west of the centre of town you are welcomed by large stucco townhouses set along charming, traditional avenues. For more upmarket properties, the villas and detached homes in Old Town, Meads and Holywell are particularly delightful. From Redoubt to Roselands on the east side you’ll also find beautiful late-Victorian and Edwardian townhouses.
Down at Sovereign Harbour there are a selection of contemporary apartments that offer unforgettable water views. Macquarie Quay features a number of popular townhouses, while there are also modern waterside apartments that come complete with private balconies to add even more value.
Upperton has more of a village feel if you are looking for a somewhere slightly out of the way and in places like Upperton Gardens some of the properties have now been converted into attractive apartments. The village of Ratton is known for its period conversions, and prospective buyers are always drawn towards Willingdon and thanks to its traditional style of homes.
Elsewhere, Polegate is renowned for providing good value bungalows of various sizes, and over the next few years it will see the arrival of 78 new properties, with almost a third being bracketed as affordable. There is so much exciting property to choose from in Eastbourne today, it’s almost impossible to know where to start.
