TIME is running out to buy a beautiful, converted property at Berkeley’s prestigious All Saints development in Meads Village, Eastbourne.
There are a limited number of unique two-bedroom apartments, perfectly combining traditional architecture with modern design.
Anyone wishing to own a historic home combining the best of traditional architecture with modern living, in beautifully landscaped grounds, will need to act fast.
All Saints recently saw the completion of a four year labour of love, combining the grandeur of Victorian architecture with the very best in modern living.
Built in 1869 and originally designed by architect Henry Woodyer, this significant landmark building had fallen into disrepair until it was sensitively converted into a unique collection of homes unrivalled in the area.
It has now been restored to its original Victorian glory by Berkeley (Southern) Ltd, working closely with English Heritage and a team of highly skilled craftsmen, including local company Priest Restoration, which have previously worked on historic buildings such as Kensington Palace and Somerset House.
Each home at All Saints is individually designed to blend authentic period features with the best of stylish modern interiors, offering a variety of layouts that take advantage of the building’s heritage while providing living space that is practical.
Architectural features, such as turrets, have been integrated into homes as modern functional spaces, such as shower and laundry rooms.
The exterior cloisters have also been used effectively, acting as covered terraces and balconies for selected homes and offering sensational views over the South Downs or towards the sea.
Kevin Redmond, head of sales at All Saints, said, “There has been incredibly strong demand at All Saints. There are only a handful of homes left so anybody who wishes to live in a unique, converted home and own a slice of history needs to move quickly to avoid disappointment.
“This really is the last chance to buy, and there are simply no other developments anywhere near the calibre of All Saints in the area.”
Within each unique home are all the modern comforts one would expect, from integrated kitchen appliances to underfloor heating. The bathrooms are finished to Berkeley’s signature high specification and many of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and en suite facilities. Berkeley’s attention to detail extends to the impressive communal areas.
One of the magnificent entrance halls has been returned to its Victorian splendour, a process that took hundreds of man-hours to complete, and the original geometric tiled floor design was painstakingly recreated from historic photographic records.
There is also a library where residents can meet each other or greet guests, and an on-site gym. The private chapel has also been completely restored and will now be used as an exciting venue for an ongoing programme of cultural events.
The splendour of the building is complemented by beautifully landscaped grounds which include communal courtyards, designed to encourage wildlife and biodiversity, while creating a tranquil environment for its residents. All outside space is professionally maintained by the estate management service, so residents can enjoy the gardens without having to do anything to maintain them. It all adds up to some of the finest restored properties available on the South Coast.
