Welcome to Hortsley, Seaford

Tucked away in the heart of Seaford, Hortsley is a charming collection of 38 one- and two-bedroom apartments, just moments from the sea. Architects RCKa have designed the building to complement the local architecture and to make the most of the lovely coastal views.

Accessible from each apartment, a winter gallery overlooks the gardens. With its ornamental pool and herb garden, the walled garden is a delightful place to wander through. You can also enjoy time spent on the well-maintained landscaped courtyard, flanked by a terrace and containing a sheltered pergola, which lies at the heart of the development.

All of our homes are now reserved.
