East Sussex Estate and Letting Agents
East Sussex is in South East England bordering Kent, West Sussex, Surrey and the English Channel. Parts of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty mean woodland, fields, rivers, and sites of historic interest are all here, as well as the impressive Seven Sisters chalk cliffs. Many people flock to the county in the warmer months to hike across the peaks to Birling Gap and Beachy Head.
For city lovers, Brighton attracts young couples and families as well as eclectic types and lovers of the arts. Literary fans visit for Ashdown Forest, fondly dubbed ‘Christopher Robin country’. Here you can find a wide variety of properties, and those sought-after coastal locations you’ve been dreaming of.
What is East Sussex like to live in?
Popular with those who want the best of coastal living, East Sussex is a picturesque county, with plenty to offer people from all walks of life. Students at Brighton University, East Sussex College, or indeed any of the county’s fine schools, keep the rental market active.
In terms of transport, East Sussex is served entirely by A roads, but the M20, M23, M25 and M26 are all within easy reach, offering connections with London and the rest of the country. Trains run regularly from Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings direct to London. It takes about an hour to two depending on your starting point, but Brighton is especially popular with London commuters. For travel with a vintage twist, East Sussex is home to the Bluebell Railway, where you can take a classic steam train ride through the countryside.
Some of East Sussex’s property hotspots
Coastal cities Brighton and Hove, the historic towns of Lewes and Rye, and the picturesque village of Ditchling are just some hotspots in East Sussex. Brighton is known for its Regency-era properties, which offer opportunity for renters as many are split into flats or smaller properties. It’s a little less affordable here for terrace or semi-detached homes.
Modern homes with sea views can be found in Eastbourne, especially at Sovereign Harbour. For the newest flats and penthouses, this is where many head, because you also benefit from waterside shopping and restaurants. St Leonards-on-Sea and the Old Town in Hastings are sought-after for the views and history behind them. Property values are a little more affordable here, too.
A little inland from the coast, Rye offers medieval homes and independent shops along cobbled streets, as well as a boutique cinema and excellent coffee shops. And for the best of the beaches, nearby Camber Sands is simply stunning.
Lewes is a popular historic market town just an hour-long train journey from London. Lewes offers good schools and excellent access to those East Sussex landscapes, as it sits within the South Downs National Park, only 10 miles from the coast.
