The east and west walls of this two bedroom open plan house are almost all glass making the interior of this house extraordinarily light and airy.

Living rooms: 1 spacious

Area:  1051 sq ft; 97.7 sq m

Outside: West facing patio

Location: Hanover

Parking: Free on the street

Why you’ll like it:

Hanover provides attractive, spacious homes within walking distance of the City, shops, parks and the beach, and this unusually wide Victorian house on a quiet street is painted a soft cream in keeping with the area’s tradition of individual, painted terraces and has unexpectedly tall (and energy efficient) windows in place on both floors. 

You step through the front door into a beautifully light and fluid space which has been almost completely opened up and you can see straight through the angled wall ahead into the patio garden which glimmers with gold mosaic and looks like an exotic extension to the room.

The broad entrance steps up into the stylish dining area, where the practical, continental style tiling continues. The current owners have placed their dining table between the broad bay window and the west wall, the central door of which slides open to include the patio into the entertaining space. To your right, the kitchen is discreetly set to one side and is angled so that although it is social it doesn’t dominate the room, and it has cheerful daisy tiles and Paula Rosa buttercup gingham units. The Neff gas hob and electric oven are integrated as is the dishwasher beneath the window (more light!) and there is space for a tall fridge freezer.

At the end of the dining room a door leads through an inner lobby to a peaceful bedroom suite, ideal for guests or even B&B, with the double room on the left and an airy bathroom on the right.

Up a sculptural staircase, you emerge into a stunning living room, full of sunshine thanks to the floor to ceiling windows on your left, and the wall of glass, frosted for shade and privacy, to your right. A stately pillar shares the mosaic design of the garden below, tying the spaces together and the thick cream carpet beneath your feet continues through into the elegant master bedroom. You will sleep comfortably in this spacious room which has a graceful floor to ceiling bay window a fitted wardrobe and large airing cupboard and to complete the very grown up feel of this house, there is also a chic en suite shower room.

Bear in mind:

There is scope to extend out over the flat roof or up into the roof space, should you so wish.

Owner’s secret:

“I can walk to the centre of things in minutes, but it is a lovely house to entertain in and the street is nice and quiet at night.”

Where it is:

Shops: North Laines 15-20 minute walk, Churchill Square 6 minutes by bus

Train Station: Brighton mainline 10 minutes by bus

Seafront or Park: Queen’s Park 4 minutes, seafront is about a 10-15 minute walk

Closest Schools:

Primary: Carlton Hill, Queen’s Park Primary, St Luke’s

Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College

Like Rome, Brighton is built on hills, and Hanover is a lively incline from the City which stretches up from the revamped Level to the Queen’s Park, favoured by young professionals and families due to its accessibility to the City, the sea and popular schools. Its proximity to the mainline station and the A23/27 also make this exceptional home a viable proposition for those needing fast links to the Airports and London on a daily or weekly basis, and makes it suitable as a rental property as well.
