Why you’ll like it:

Nestled into a leafy hillside, this smart house is in a small cul de sac in the popular Mile Oak area of Portslade close to the historic Village centre and within moments of the primary school, senior school and sixth form college! Nicely symmetrical, stairs lead up on each side of the driveway and garage, one to the side gate and the other stepping up past the front garden with a handrail and light to guide your way, and it is good to see energy efficient windows already in place.

Inside, the welcoming hallway glistens in silver, the delicate choice of paper introducing you to the deft, light touch of the current owners and to your left the wooden floor continues into the sophisticated living room which is full of sunshine and refreshing leafy views of the garden, echoed in the sensitive choice of designer paper. For intimate evenings, there is both an open fireplace and a dimmer switch (which feature throughout this carefully thought through home), and to your right double doors sweep open into the fabulous kitchen diner, also reached from the hallway.

Beautifully designed with the dining area by broad doors which slide open to the sun terrace and garden, the L shaped kitchen/diner has streamlined white units warmed by wood surfaces and plenty of chic shelving. The splendid multi fuel range could stay, subject to circumstance and negotiation and above it, a magnificent Sandstrom extractor responds to your touch and provides a second level of lighting. There is no need to clutter the space as there is a deep under stair cupboard and the dishwasher, fridge and freezer are integrated, and as plumbing is there for the washing machine of your choice, this is a kitchen all ready for the housewarming.

At the top of the thickly carpeted stairs, the landing has a family friendly airing cupboard with a discrete w.c. to one side and a luxury bathroom on the other which has a contemporary white suite has a double headed shower as well as a practical airing cupboard and window frosted for privacy. Next door, the first double bedroom shimmers in blue and silver and has restful views across the gardens of the lower houses opposite to the encircling Downs. Also at the front of the house and sharing the open views, which make the room very private as well, the peaceful master bedroom is also beautifully decorated and ready to move into and the third bedroom, which looks over the garden, is full of birdsong.

Outside, the sun terrace is big enough for informal lunches and the surprisingly large south facing garden steps up to follow the sun and has a charming paved level, partially shaded by the scented boughs of a mature apple tree, perfect for entertaining or for romantic suppers when the children are in bed.

Bear in mind:

This is a peaceful location well served for schools, parks and transport where it is easy to forget that everything you need is within easy reach.

 Owner’s secret:

“This is a light house, easy to live in, which is close to the no 1 bus route along the coast and into central Brighton so the older children have a degree of independence”

Where it is:

Shops: Local 3 minutes, historic High Street with restaurants etc about 4 minutes by cab

Station: Portslade Station 10 minute drive

Seafront or park: Hove Lagoon is about a 10 minute drive, South Downs 5 minute walk

Closest schools:

Primary: Mile Oak Primary, Peter Galdwin

Secondary: Portslade Aldridge Community Academy and Portslade 6th Form Centre

Private: Brighton College, Lancing

This quiet house is in a great location close to local schools and amenities including parks and the bustling Village High Street which also has a bistro pub. Between the City of Brighton and Hove and the thriving coastal town of Shoreham by Sea, the beach and Hove Lagoon with its water sports facilities are within easy reach. If that is not enough, Portslade railway station is nearby, making this home an attractive investment for those wanting a stylish but quiet life with regular access to Gatwick and London.
