Property Description

A Grade 2 listed Georgian seaside villa, dating back to late 18th century. With many original period features, including its elegant, continuous cast-iron railings at the front and its symmetrical central stair-hall with original stick balustrades, this guesthouse is possibly the earliest of the hotels built in Watersmeet Road, and retains more original details than most.
