FANTASTIC BUILDING IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA WITH LINKED FOUR STOREY BLOCK IN PEVENSEY ROAD - POTENTIAL FOR A NUMBER OF USES
Capel-ne-Ferne is a fantastic Grade II Listed building, with an interlinking four-storey block in Pevensey Road. The buildings are set in 1.35 acres and offer potential for a number of alternative uses. The main house retains many original features, including ornate ceilings, with some parts of the building dating back to the 18th Century. The property is linked to 40 Pevensey Road via a rear corridor and has in excess of 90 rooms with scope for a multitude of uses, including wedding venue, hotel or conversion into flats, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable. Planning Permission has, however, been granted for the building to be split into two houses which would create very impressive dwellings.
It is considered that the site and buildings have potential for further development, or extension, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable. Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries regarding future use and development of the site with the Local Planning Authority, the Hastings Borough Council, Aquila House, Breeds Place, Hastings, East Sussex, TN34 3UY. Tel: 01424 451090.
There are extensive gardens surrounding the properties and the road frontages are secluded by trees. There are two driveways and ample parking to the front, together with ponds and courtyards. The accommodation in the main house include large open plan rooms on the ground floor (ideal for function room use), commercial kitchens and, on the top floor, there is an observation room which has a balcony providing far reaching views across the coastline.
n 40 Pevensey Road is a four storey unconverted block, with saunas on the lower ground floor and potential for conversion, or retention of the existing accommodation with, maybe, staff quarters for the main house.
