Situated in a sought after seafront location is this four storey bay fronted property just off the A259 Coast Road. The seafront with its recreational facilities, restaurants and bars are within close proximity with excellent road links to Brighton, Lewes and all surrounding areas.

The Seller advises that the property was purchased from Mick Jackson who wrote the song ‘Blame it on the Boogie’ a worldwide hit in 1978 for The Jacksons and has continued to be used successfully as a studio by Hollywood actor Patrick Bergin and others.

The building occupies a prominent position on the east side at the lower end of the street and is in need of modernisation. It provides spacious accommodation with direct sea views and a walled courtyard garden to the rear.

We understand from the seller that two of the ground floor rooms have been soundproofed and have recently been used as recording studios. There is potential for commercial usage, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
