Why you’ll like it
In a quiet cul de sac with a foot path onto the Downs behind Brighton College, this sociably designed house is brighter than most as its corner plot on the terrace means that it has windows on three sides – and you will be pleased to hear that they are all already energy efficient. Inside, the welcoming hallway has a high ceiling and introduces you to the restful use of natural materials throughout the space with the wooden floor, stairs and solid window sill on your right.
As is often the case in these period homes, to the left is the first of the spacious bedrooms, currently set up as a private office, which has an attractive fireplace with shelving to each side. Sunshine pours in through the south facing windows, and the room is particularly quiet within the terrace as it is opposite a bike store, and no cars can park beneath the window either. Next door, a luxury bathroom has a whirlpool bath and a wet room style shower and continuing the natural theme, the floor is slate and the contemporary hand basin rests on gleaming wood.
Downstairs is a fabulous family room with plenty of space for dining and relaxing and a hard to find open fireplace adds character as well as warmth to the space. Soft light filters through the light wells and to the right, the space is not dark as the room opens into the kitchen area which has a deliciously broad and tall pair of windows bringing the garden straight into the space, with a door close by for easy access. The kitchen is surprisingly large and is family friendly with plenty of honey coloured units and practical work surfaces, and there is plumbing for machines in place. A deep under stair cupboard means that you don’t have to clutter the space up and there is space in the garden for a shed for the bbq etc. The garden was designed to be easy to maintain and has stepping stones over pebbles to a raised decking area big enough for al fresco dining. Way above your head is a side gate leading to the street, although the stairs have gone, but you may be able to reinstate them with a small platform for bikes, subject to the usual consents.
The first floor has a wide landing with access to the loft, and most unusually for this central but quiet location, has three light and airy double bedrooms as the house is bigger than most in the terrace.
Bear in mind
This quiet cul de sac is in a popular area tucked behind Brighton College.
