Stunning new homes for sale in sought-after Sussex from leading developers
The new homes market has never been better, never been more varied or more exciting. Gone are the days when new homes meant uniform blocks of apartments or homogenised estates of identical three-bed semis. Today new homes can mean anything from a streamlined apartment to a rustic-style cottage in a bespoke rural development. Add to this the increasing fashion for redevelopment of historic buildings, hotels, industrial sites and ancient buildings and you will see that new homes can be both ancient and modern.
There is also a trend for new homes to target first time buyers, so look out for those special deals, mortgage opportunities and other special offers. The idea of a new home is exciting and innovative too. It comes with guarantees, the latest technologies, green credentials and, of course, a bright and clean new start for every buyer.
Over the next few pages take a look at some of the stunning new home developments currently available in and around Sussex.

Martin Grant Homes
A popular collection of new homes blends into village life perfectly
The before and after photographs show just what a difference The Amberley Collection in Storrington has made blending the new with the old. Susanne Thomas of Martin Grant Homes adds that they were very aware of the importance of designing the homes to enhance the existing ones and is very pleased with the result.
Having sold all these houses the focus has moved to The Pines, which forms part of the same collection. This is an elegant building comprising three individual homes. Each has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen / dining rooms and a good size living room overlooking the garden. Outside you will find garaging and parking with access into the back gardens.
Marion Neden of Guy Leonard and Company describes selling the Amberley Collection as being extremely exciting with many of the properties being sold off-plan, thus enabling the satisfied purchasers a chance to personalise their own home. “It has been a pleasure to be associated with Martin Grant Homes and this delightful development.”
The Pines is due for completion at the end of November. For further details please contact Marion on 01403 248222. Hurry, only two properties remain!
Ever since the Prince Regent built his extravagant Pavilion, Brighton has been proud to be seen as out of the ordinary, as offering visitors and residents something special. Today, the transformation of an iconic Art Deco hotel at Saltdean into a collection of stunning luxury apartments is continuing the city’s association with the exceptional.
Grand Ocean is simply one of the finest coastal developments in the UK. The restored Art Deco landmark has been complemented by four new wings to form a collection of homes that are hard to match along the whole of the South Coast. The development offers a range of luxury one- and two-bedroom apartments along with a very few penthouse apartments which, with their huge wrap-around terraces and 29ft long living rooms offering wonderful sea views, simply take the breath away.
For much of its history the Grand Ocean site has been a landmark destination. Built in 1938 as one of the most spectacular hotels on the South Coast, the site was blessed with beautiful gardens, a magnificent ballroom and roof sundecks that attracted the ‘in-crowd’ for a weekend by the sea. Today the apartments have a similar appeal, with many being sold as weekend and holiday bolt holes for those yearning for that unique combination of the cleansing sea air and the vibrancy of a Brighton weekend.
Prices for an apartment at Grand Ocean often surprise; being just outside the city centre you get that much more for your money. Two-bedroom apartment prices begin at just £299,995 whilst the breathtaking penthouses are on the market for just a little over £500,000.
