Why you’ll like it: 

On a quiet road, the extended house would still be approached past front gardens, and you could put a secure gate to the back gardens on the left, which would be great for muddy paws. A broad entrance hall with a guest cloakroom and hidden utility would open into an elegant living room designed for luxury living. Glass doors in the south wall would maximise the enjoyment of the astounding views and would fold discreetly open to include the front viewing terrace into the entertaining space and at the far end of the room would be a private office. The whole of the rest of this substantial house would be transformed into a glamorous open plan family room, discreetly zoned into dining room kitchen area and snug, which would open into the Italianate curved terrace, bringing the outside in and allowing for free movement between the two and there would also be stairs up to the more formal, tiered gardens.

Up on the first floor, two peaceful double bedrooms would look over the gardens at the back and would share a spacious bathroom, large enough for both a shower and a bath, and there are lists and costings to help you choose your level of luxury! The fabulous master bedroom at the front of the house would have access to the south facing terrace, which, as you can see from the current one, has spectacular views reaching from the Downs across the green park at the heart of Saltdean and on to the sparkling sea. You can select the en suite of your dreams, and there are even plans for a dressing room. The deluxe guest bedroom across the hall would also have access to the terrace, which would be an ideal spot for breakfast or a romantic nightcap and the en suite shower room could be to die for.

The consents provided to us together with conditions are available for perusal, and we understand that the full scaffolding with roof, which is already present on site, is also part of the deal.

Bear in mind:

This inspiring project is in the quiet, sought after area of Saltdean, well served for parks and schools, whilst being within easy reach of Kemp Town, the Marina, Hospitals and award winning Brighton College.
