Why you’ll like it:
This new terrace leads up to a former turreted Benedictine convent and the architect has been careful not to destroy the character of the historic grounds by creating peaceful inner courtyards, which as well as providing parking and cycle stores are also attractive as they are planted with trees. A wild life pond adds to the relaxed atmosphere and this smart house is found on the right hand side beyond the remote controlled entrance gates, decorated with fruit and badgers and secured by a video entry system.
Inside, the broad hallway has smooth wooden effect flooring and a high ceiling. To the left is a chic guest cloakroom and opposite is a big cupboard for coats, boots and bags. Ahead, the glamorous zig zag shaped living room has two walls of glass, the spacious living area looking over the patio whilst the east wall by the dining area folds completely open into the stylish outside space which has a characterful, listed wall and lighting already in place for al fresco suppers. Behind you, the kitchen has its own window and is tucked away in its own space, so that although it is sociable, it doesn’t dominate the living area and with two levels of lighting, you can set the mood. The gas hob and electric oven are integrated for you as are the dishwasher and washing machine and there are plenty of chic cream units, chosen for their reflective qualities with ample dark work surfaces.
Up past a tall, slim window, the expert quality of finish continues in the luxurious bathroom which is soothingly decorated in natural colours and has a shower above the bath. To the right, the fourth bedroom looks over the peaceful courtyard. At the end of the hallway, morning sunshine and stunning views across Kemp Town to the Downs and the sea pour into the master bedroom through the east wall which is all glass so that you can enjoy the views even from bed. Sliding open onto a glass Juliette balcony, you can just imagine resting your elbows here to breathe in the morning air or relax after a busy, hot day in the city, and the en suite shower room has luxurious underfloor heating. On the top floor, two vaulted bedrooms enjoy west facing windows and, like the other rooms, are light and airy and ready to move into.
Bear in mind:
All the houses are built to an exacting standard achieving a SH code level 4. The energy efficient features include high specification acoustic/heat insulation, under floor heating on the ground floor & in the bathrooms & sophisticated LED lighting which uses a quarter of the electricity of a standard lightbulb. They have photovoltaic tubes, and each home is eligible to claim the feed in tariff available from the government.
