Art Deco Landmark Seafront Apartment
from £43 /night help
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Enjoy a relaxing long-weekend, short break or seaside holiday in this self-contained serviced apartment in the iconic seafront landmark Art Deco block Marine Court in St Leoanrds on Sea in East Sussex - once the largest residential block in the country.
Designed by architects Kenneth Dalgleish and Roger K Pullen, with overt references to the Cunard White-Star Liner Queen Mary, Marine Court was completed in 1938 and was an early pioneer of steel-frame construction, like the other nearby modernist masterpiece the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, and was awarded Grade-II listing status in 1999.
Available all-year-round, the accommodation located on the first floor comprises of:
Comfortably furnished living room/bedroom with easy-to-use double sofa bed, dressing table, TV and leather reclining chair
Refurbished fully fitted kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, slow cooker, toaster, grill and washing machine
Separate dining and study room with round glass dining table and desk
Refurbished bathroom with original large 1930's cast iron bath, modern shower and low-level WC
The block benefits from a 24 hour concierge service, original passenger lift, and constant hot water. The ground floor shops include a variety of restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. The apartment is also available for business trips, foreign language school teachers and leaders or other professionals wanting privacy and quiet.
Located on St Leonards seafront a short walk from St Leonards town centre and St Leonards Warrior Square mainline railway station. National coach services serve Warrior Square and local bus services stop outside. There is free on-street car parking directly behind the block and in surrounding streets, and time-limited parking on the main seafront road (A259).

The East Sussex region
St Leonards on Sea
The Victorian seaside town of St Leonards on Sea was conceived and built as an exclusive seaside resort by famous father and son architects Decimus Burton - a protegé of John Nash, and particularly associated with projects in the classical style in London parks, including buildings at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and London Zoo, and the spa town Tunbridge Wells - and James Burton, a builder and developer, responsible for large areas of Bloomsbury and the houses around Regent's Park in London.
Later additions include the fine Warrior Square and gardens, the iconic Modernist block Marine Court - the largest residential block in England at the time it was built - and the unique work of long-term Borough architect Sidney Little (known as The Concrete King) who built the unique two-level promenade and many associated seafront buildings.
Over recent years the area has become a centre for artists and creatives of all kinds who have relocated to St Leonards from all over the UK and have helped established a range of vibrant independent galleries, restuarants, cafes and an all-year-round programme of cultural events.
