Beautiful 5 Bedroom Detached Turner-Style House with Sea Views and Solar Power.

Set back from the road in a highly sought after Hove area, this immensely elegant house was originally built by Harold Turner in the Sussex farmhouse vernacular and features Arts & Crafts detailing with its stained glass leaded windows, solid oak doors and distinctive chimney stacks.

Conveniently located for all that Brighton and Hove has to offer, behind the classic brick facade a tastefully presented home has been lovingly restored to seamlessly incorporate modern energy efficient technology alongside original 1930s features.
From the Crittall windows, which have been rebuilt with their original 1930s stained glass to the highest specification, to the photovoltaic solar panels, every aspect of this home is finished to a highly energy efficient specification. No onward chain. EPC Rating C.

In More Detail - Arranged over three floors, solid oak floors, exposed beams and period fireplaces combine with LED lighting, underfloor heating and luxury fittings to create a beautiful example of contemporary living in a period property.

Ground Floor - The original 85 year old solid oak door complete with black iron fittings and antique bell opens onto a generous hallway where the soft colours of stained glass leaded windows create an instantly warm and inviting feel.

Natural light tumbles into a main reception room from elegant dual aspect windows highlighting the exposed oak beams and the rich tones of the original oak floor. Crisp white walls add to the sense of elegance, whilst a carved wooden mantelpiece sits around an impressive period fireplace creating an instant focal point.

Sitting beneath additional exposed beams in a beautifully flowing open plan space, a formal dining area is perfectly proportioned for entertaining and large family meals. The ample floor space of a well-appointed kitchen, with its solid oak worktops and vaulted ceiling, easily accommodates a kitchen island. Sitting in and amongst sleek soft close cabinets, an integrated AEG dishwasher and an eye-catching Smeg range cooker offer the conveniences of a modern lifestyle, while the countertops with their etched drainer grooves encompass an under-mounted 1.5 sink with a separate filtered hot water tap.

Wide double doors allow the stunning open plan space to flow into a well-sized second reception room complete with working fireplace. Contemporary aluminium bi-fold doors open directly onto a spacious south-facing decked terrace which together with the French doors of the kitchen effortlessly extend this wonderfully versatile and sociable ground floor space still further.

A separate well-proportioned utility room with fitted charcoal grey cabinets offers plenty of discreet storage and space for laundry appliances.

A stylish guest WC/cloakroom completes the ground floor.

First Floor - Curving up to the first floor, the solid oak staircase sweeps past a tall Crittall stained glass window which instantly creates an eye-catching wow factor and reminds you of the charm and character of this renovated home.

The 'Dangerous Red' tones of a feature Opus Muras flock wall inject a sumptuous feel to the master suite. A stained glass window offers south-facing views over the landscaped rear garden and down to the coast while a wall of fitted wardrobes and under eaves cupboards provide ample storage.

Offering the opportunity to watch the sun set over the horizon while relaxing in a freestanding roll-top bath the luxurious en suite bathroom is beautifully appointed with an Albion Bath Company suite. A solid granite floor blends with a charcoal column radiator while a curved shower cubicle lends a modern finishing touch.

Three further bedrooms are equally well-proportioned and offer ideal family accommodation each with their own Crittall windows. Two double bedrooms look out onto the attractive front garden whilst a single bedroom offers ideal dual space potential.

A bespoke wood cabinet sits above the basin in the contemporary family bathroom. Underfloor heating lends a touch of comfort to the porcelain tiled floor and a walk-in shower comes complete with a rain shower head.

Second Floor - Fully insulated to achieve maximum energy efficient levels the top floor of this Turner-style home offers plenty of height and space. Two Velux windows offer the chance for further sea views and ensure that the bedroom continues the feeling of calm and peacefulness which flows throughout. A walk-in wardrobe leads onto a large under-eaves space which offers the opportunity to become an additional en suite bathroom (subject to the correct consents).

Outside - To the front of the property, easy to maintain mature flowerbeds offer an established array of plants and shrubs creating an inviting and picture-perfect first impression. A wide driveway and large garage, complete with mezzanine storage space, offer off-road parking for 4/5 cars.

The bi-fold and French doors of the open plan reception room and kitchen open onto an impressively sized decked terrace which wraps itself across the full width of the house. Ideal for entertaining with its sea views, pergola and blue LED lighting, a stainless steel water feature adds a contemporary finishing touch. This incredibly private and peaceful outdoor space also provides the opportunity to extend the ground floor (subject to the correct consents).

Steps lead down from the decked terrace to a wide well-kept lawn providing additional space to sit and enjoy sunny afternoons and warm summer evenings. Encompassed by a wonderful array of palm, fir and olive trees along with the heady scents of lavender and geraniums, a greenhouse, timber shed and playhouse complete this timeless English garden.

Photovoltaic solar panels provide Oak Lodge with a source of free hot water and electricity all year round and together with the modern insulation and the new lead and weather seals of the Crittall windows makes this property incredibly energy efficient.

What The Owners Say - "It was the character and feel of the house that made an instant impression on us. It has the unique quality of being a modern house full of character and the incredible sea views make it really special.

Our favourite place to spend time in is the living room. When you open up the bi-fold doors it's an amazing space to have barbeques and parties, it's so lovely, sunny and private there. Day or night it's a great house for entertaining, it's got everything.

We'll really miss the views and the sunsets, they're things that you just cant put a price on. To be able to sit and watch the sun melt into the sea is just incredible."

In The Local Area - Sitting near to Hove Park there is an abundance of outdoor facilities close at hand ranging from tennis courts, children's playground and bowling green to a caf, picnic area and working model railway.

A Waitrose superstore is within walking distance and the shops and amenities of Seven Dials and Church Road are all easily accessible.

Nearby Hove and Preston Park train stations offer convenient mainline links for commuters and local schools include Lancing Prep and Hove Park School and Sixth Form Centre, along with the recently opened Bilingual Primary School.
