8 Admiralty Mews forms the principal central section of a very fine Georgian building. The entire building is steeped in history. It was originally built as a naval hospital in the early 19th century, and then became home to The Royal Marines School of Music. This elegant and spacious home incorporates not only the oldest surviving andldquo;operating theatre” in England but some of the former offices and tutorial rooms of the music school. History is never far away! Standing sentinel in the centre, No. 8 dominates the parade, with a large Tuscan pillared entrance portico and a handsome pediment surmounted by a clock and an elegant domed cupola. The grand front door leads into a wide and welcoming andldquo;T” shaped entrance hall. To the left is the former Director of Music room, now a gracious reception room with tall ceilings with egg and dart cornicing. Opposite is a good-size bedroom and ensuite bathroom. At the end of the hall a wide staircase leads up the first floor. There is a secondary door to the outside and rear garden. At the head of the andldquo;T” is the former operating theatre. It is semicircular in shape and has the original preparation and storage shelfs still intact. It would make a wonderful entertaining and party room. Windows on all flanks flood the room with light. The wide staircase leads up to the bright first floor landing. Across the width of the building and facing the sea is the double width Drawing Room with gracious and elegant archways. This is a fabulous room. Beautifully proportioned and light-filled, it is the perfect place for formal or informal entertaining with lovely sea views. Across the landing is the double aspect dining room which adjoins the well-fitted kitchen. The stairs lead up to the top floor where the bedroom accommodation is situated. The main bedroom is spacious and grand, with a large dressing room adjoining. Both the bedroom and dressing room have ensuite bathrooms. From the bedroom there are great views of the Channel. The remaining accommodation is made up of two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.To the rear of the house is an attractive enclosed garden with lawns and shrub beds. Hedges on three sides gives good levels of privacy, and there is plenty of space for table and chairs for alfresco entertaining. There are four parking spaces.
