Early 19th century; recast and converted by Ian Lindsay & Partners, circa 1970. 3-storey, 4-bay rectangular-plan tenement forming part of terrace. Harled and limewashed; projecting string course; raised and painted concrete surrounds to openings.
S (ENTRANCE) ELEVATION: timber boarded door to entry in bay to left of centre; 3-light fanlight above. Single windows in remaining bays to ground floor. Regularly fenestrated to 1st and 2nd floors.
N (REAR) ELEVATION: regularly fenestrated to all floors.

Former Marine Hotel with the adjacent No 62. Previously stuccoed with timber architraves (rough ashlar at ground, rubble above in 1970). Formerly in use as a school, at least in part. Single storey additions to the rear of both No 62 and 60, shown on the 1876 Ordnance Survey map, were demolished by Ian Lindsay & Partners. One of many Newhaven properties refurbished by the practice during the 1970s, the building displays characteristics typical to the whole scheme - harling and limewash and timber sash and case windows. Despite harsh detailing and standardisation, work here must be acknowledged as a pioneering attempt to conserve and improve an entire fishing village. A substantial project with a clear philosophy, it contrasts with more recent restoration attempts and thus, illustrates the differing and developing attitudes towards conservation. Previously listed as 3-5 Main Street.
