Why you’ll like it:

Painted in lilac, and complimenting its neighbours beautifully, this sweet Victorian terrace is very attractive. The smart indigo blue front door is reached up a couple of steps, and it leads you into a welcoming hallway, where the light steams in thought the stained glass panels in the door. The ceilings are high, and the hallway has a sage carpet which leads you to the living room on your left.

This was once two reception rooms, but is now a generous living room, which is bright and airy due to its east west orientation. There is a bay window to the front, and the back window looks out over the gardens. The floors are stripped and varnished in warming tones, and there is a cast iron gas fire with a wooden surround which makes this room feel very homely.

Further along the hall is the first peaceful double bedroom. This also has the original floorboards, and the view looks out to a lilac tree giving privacy. Returning to the hall, and down a wooden staircase you come to the kitchen dining room. There are terracotta floor tiles throughout the space, the work tops are solid oak, and there is a butler sink inlaid below the window.  This gives it a country feel, but the turquoise Shaker style units add a modern twist, and a lovely splash of colour too. The dishwasher is integrated, as is the electric oven; usefully placed in a tower to avoid awkward bending, and there is ample space for a kitchen table and chairs. To the right is the separate utility space, and the Worcester boiler is also neatly housed here, near the back door. Another door leads you to the family bathroom, which has a white suite and exquisite hand painted tiles around the bath. There are in rich blues and aquamarine, and each one is individual with a undersea design to remind you that you are just a short stroll from the beach.

The patio garden is accessed from here, and although it is modest in size, it has space for a table and chairs, and raised beds for planting. It has flint walls, and even space for a small shed for your gardening tools, which is neatly tucked away in one corner.

Returning to the upper hallway, you climb a further flight of stairs to two more tranquil double bedrooms. The one to the rear has lovely views towards the city, with the majestic St Bartholomew Church taking centre stage. The larger, master bedroom to the front again has varnished floor boards, and looks out to the colourful terraces ahead. There is plenty of space in here for large wardrobes and other bedroom furniture, and there is attic space above for storage.

Hanover is so quintessentially ‘Brighton’ as it is vibrant, colourful, and has a creative community. This house embodies that with its use of colour, and it has real character. It will make a wonderful family home.

Bear in mind:

There is still lots of scope to extend, either to expand the kitchen and utility area into the side return, or to create a further room in the loft. This is all subject to gaining the appropriate planning consents though.
