Why you’ll like it:

This large house is impressive with its strong Art Deco lines and it is good to see that the energy efficient windows are in keeping with the style of the house. There are steps up from the driveway but there is also a welcoming pedestrian entrance stepping up through gardens to the south facing balcony and the imposing front door. Inside is a sensibly tiled lobby where the original double doors are waiting to sweep you through into a wide and welcoming hallway with a gleaming herringbone floor, decorative ceiling and walls painted to look like stone.

The Hollywood, baronial feel continues in the imposing reception on your right which shimmers in gold and has a carved stone fireplace. Running the full breadth of this substantial building, windows at each end ensure this space is light all day long and the broad door in the far wall opens on to the sun terrace which leads to the most wonderful garden. Across the hall, the beautiful wood floor continues into the dining room with a magnificent deco fireplace, open views of the front garden and a discreet hatch through to the kitchen next door. Bright and cheerful, the kitchen is decorated in Jane Churchill paper and has plenty of space with a wall of fitted cupboards with a shelf beneath the hatch and there is also a larder with a window. The original bell box is above the door to the hall and opposite is a door to the garden and the garage, and you can see that it would be easy to make this airy room which looks over the garden very glamorous.

A cloakroom-cum boot room is tucked away at the foot of the staircase and heading up past a glorious leaded window, the house really spreads its wings with a long hallway heading off in two directions and access to the large attic. The spacious master bedroom, like the living room beneath it, spans the depth of the house and has a period fireplace. Wonderful sea views pour in through the front and restful views of the garden come in at the back. Next door, the single room would be ideal for a nursery and shares with the third bedroom magnificent views which sweep along the coast and over the city to the Blatchington Mill and the green of the Downs which encircle the city. Nicely discreet a separate w.c is at the end of the hall and just by it is a bathroom, resplendent in Deco tiles with a sunny suite to match and big enough for both a bath and a shower, which is wet room in style.

Bear in mind:
