Why you’ll like it: 


With its residential location and peaceful gardens, this lovingly refurbished home balances the convenience of the city with easy access to the Downs and the sea. Finished to exacting standards, this streamlined detached house has sophisticated use of differing materials gives a hint as to the thought taken inside, where the striking impression continues in a galleried hallway which stretches high above your head.



The Living Room:


Ahead, double doors open into an elegantly proportioned living room where the expert eye behind the design is immediately evident. The generous windows to the east and west fill this generous space with light and bring in glorious views of the rolling Downs and the sparkling sea beyond. For winter evenings, a wood burner brings warmth as well as character to the space, which is calmly decorated in the subtle tones of Farrow and Ball.



The Family Room and Kitchen:


This room is a dream come true, the interior design talent of the current owner really coming to the fore in this eminently practical, and comfortably uncluttered space. The stone floor is hardy and both child and pet friendly as are the smooth Corian work surfaces. The scale of the room means that there are ample units to waist level, so no need to over- do it, and as you would expect of house of this quality, all of the appliances are high spec, such as the Neff touch induction hob, and are integrated. Different levels of lighting in the space means you can choose your mood if you are entertaining informally in the evening, but the whole house is driven by a love of light, so this family room broadens into a dining and seating area beneath a vaulted sky light and a big window, and the far wall has broad, double doors sweeping open to the landscaped garden which is level with the inside, so perfect for friends and family to flow freely between. 



The dining room:


Every family home should have a grown up dining room, and this is nicely private, too. It has a fireplace and charming wooden panelling which conceals the door to the discreet utility space which has its own access to the garden. There is access to a utility room via a cleverly concealed doorway, complete with a washing machine, tumble dryer, boiler and storage space. Next door, convenient for guests, is a chic cloakroom.



The Master Bedroom:


With wonderfully romantic views over the green of the countryside and down to the sparkling sea, the master bedroom is private within the house and reaches over an impressive 7 metres. All ready for you to move into with beautiful decoration, stylish wardrobes already in place and an en suite shower room, this room is both luxurious and peaceful.



The Bedrooms and Family bathroom:


Two quiet rooms are at the back of this substantial house, each looking over the spacious gardens. One is currently set up as a private office but both are good sizes and the third room, which is above the garage, has yet more of those exceptional sea views. All are served by a family bathroom, large enough for a magnificent claw footed bath, a separate shower and which has a tall and heated towel rail.



The Gardens:


At the front of the house, the hard standing gives way to a gravelled driveway to the garage with a lawn on the right. The gardens surround the house, with gates to secure it on each side. At the back, stone paths from the gates – good for muddy paws-join the patio which is level with a spacious lawn and surrounding flower beds stocked with scented shrubs and mature trees.



Bear in mind:


This is a beautifully designed home with spectacular views in an exclusive and quiet location but which is still within easy distance of Brighton, the A23/A27 and the Coast Road.
