Art Deco-Inspired Saltdean Development Scoops Prestigious Award

A development in Saltdean, East Sussex scooped a Silver prize for Best Interior Design at the WhatHouse? Awards 2021 due to its “inspired” vision which combines modern living with the 1930s Art Deco movement.

Seaview Meadows boasts an array of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes built in a crescent around a central landscaped communal garden. Hyde New Homes put forward the three-bedroom ‘Fairlight’ property, interior designed by boutique studio Suna Interior Design, to represent the vintage-yet-contemporary aesthetic found throughout the striking development.

Working alongside Hyde New Homes with their innovative design strategy, the studio took inspiration from Seaview Meadow’s south coast location, local architecture, and its connection with the historic Saltdean Lido – itself an Art Deco masterpiece which is the only Grade II coastal Lido in the UK.

Awards judges said: “This house makes your heart sing for many reasons. The homes are different, the quality is magnificent and the sales team professional.”

Seaview MeadowsMinnie Dando, head of marketing and communications at Hyde New Homes, said: “Through our work with Suna, we have been able to showcase a spacious, yet functional home, that is adaptable to the needs of contemporary family life. The interior design has encapsulated all our ideas and we are thrilled with the result. To win this coveted award is the icing on the cake and we would like to extend our gratitude to the incredible design team at Suna for translating our vision into a reality.”

The ‘Fairlight’ has since proved such a hit with buyers that all homes of this design have completely sold out.

The handful of remaining house types available at Seaview Meadows include the three-bedroom ‘Wittering’ and the four-bedroom ‘Winchelsea’. These homes are available for outright sale with prices starting from £565,000.

There is also one Shared Ownership home available, the two-bedroom ‘Newhaven’, which has a full market value of £380,000. Buyers can purchase this home at £133,000 for a 30% share with the chance to staircase to buy more shares in the property – and own it outright at their convenience.
