Woodlands View, Hastings

First time buyers looking to make a home in what was recently named as one of the “coolest seaside towns in the UK” will be pleased to hear that Millwood Designer Homes has just launched Woodlands View, an exciting new development of one and two bedroom contemporary apartments in the historical town of Hastings, East Sussex.

Following a recent report on stating house prices have increased, on average, by a third across British seaside towns over the past decade, Woodlands View could attract canny investors too, especially as states that Hastings is one of the “buzzing areas set to take off in 2015”.

The apartments which start from £129,950 will offer first time buyers the opportunity to get their foot on the property ladder with the added advantage of being able to use the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

“We are pleased to be bringing an exciting new collection of homes to Hastings,” says Sales Director at Millwood, Philip Brown, “especially as we can now say we are building in one of the coolest seaside towns in the UK! Millwood is recognised for its quality of design and expert craftsmanship which we will be bringing to Woodlands View. We expect it to be highly sought after by both first time buyers and investors alike.”

Each of the well proportioned apartments will offer classic exteriors with attractive weatherboarding but with contemporary interiors benefiting from modern, airy, open plan kitchen/dining room/living room and one or two good sized bedrooms. Kitchens will be equipped with a range of wall and floor cabinets with laminate worktops, upstands and stainless steel splash backs.

Integrated appliances will include a 4 ring gas hob, electric oven with grill, extractor hood and washer/dryer and apartments will benefit from recessed down lighters remove include gas fired central heating and vinyl cushion flooring to kitchen. The contemporary theme will be carried through to the bathrooms with their modern white suites and chrome fittings and ceramic splash back tiling to basin and bath and vinyl cushion flooring. Externally, there will be parking available, some of which will be undercover.

Woodlands View will also offer an eclectic mix of two to five bedroom terrace, semi and semi detached homes. The development is set in a superb location close to schools and a range of local amenities as well as lying less than three miles away from quaint Hastings Old Town with its collection of coffee shops, independent retailers and restaurants. Hastings is conveniently situated on the south coast with major cities such as Brighton & Hove only an hour away. Woodlands View is just over a mile from three stations, with trains to the centre of London taking 75 minutes from Hastings Station with access to Charing Cross, Cannon Street, Waterloo East and Victoria via Gatwick Airport.

Hastings is also served by the A21 with direct access to the M25 and through to London and also on the A27 coast road giving straight routes all the way to Eastbourne, Brighton and Portsmouth. Hastings is also getting a new bypass (scheduled for completion by 2017) which will save time travelling to places such as Eastbourne and Brighton. Other nearby motorways include the M20 in Kent with direct route to Dover for ferry connections to France.

One and two bedroom apartments are from £129,950. For more information on the development, visit
