The Location: Maze Hill is lined with striking 19th-century Gothic villas and is named after the maze that once occupied the top end of St Leonards Gardens. This area was created by the well-known London builder James Burton and later his son, Decimus Burton. Conceived as a brand-new seaside resort for the wealthy, it became instantly popular with royalty and aristocracy. Maze Hill is only moments from the seafront and Town Centre with its large selection of independent shops, creative outlets, restaurants and amenities. Within easy reach of transport links including bus routes and mainline train stations connecting to Ashford, Brighton & London. Opposite the property is the fantastic St. Leonards Gardens perfect for an afternoon walk to take in the amazing architecture of Burton St Leonards.
The Property: A Grade II listed, five Bedroom, double Fronted Tudor Gothic Style property designed in 1832 by James Burton. The architectural features include parapets, central enclosed porch with cornice, pointed Gothic doorway with drip mould and carved heads. Set over three storeys with a paved garden to the front and large enclosed hard standing to the rear. The property has recently had extensive renovations both internally and externally, most of the original features remain throughout the five double bedrooms, living room and kitchen/dining room. In every room, the floorboards are present and can be easily stripped back or carpet laid on top of the boarding. The current owners have taken a lot of time to return the property from prior conversion into flats back into this stunning family home.Front Garden (Ground Floor)
