Why you’ll like it:
Step back in time with this spacious house on a well preserved Regency street with a characterful mix of fisherman cottages, artisan and middle class dwellings. The original decorative fan light is above the front door which opens into a gracious reception hall with a broad bay window and period style fireplace which is large enough to be a living room, behind which is a central staircase indicating the size and status of this house as well as allowing some degree of privacy for the occupants. Beyond the staircase is a bathroom put in in the 1970’s with a cheerful apricot suite and generous storage. Next door, a sunny conservatory looks down to the patio and a guest cloakroom is tucked away at the far end. This house just keeps on going back, this time to steps to a fabulous, vaulted kitchen, with light pouring through the sky light and which is far bigger than you expect as it runs along the back of the house next door. Useable as it is, there is plenty of space here to play with when you want to change it and you can see that there is gas to the room and plumbing for a machine. French doors open to the patio, which is partly covered and sociably connected to the conservatory, and the current owner has happy memories of delicious cream teas here after school.
To the left of the doors, stairs lead down to an atmospheric dining room with a floor to ceiling window in the side wall. The room at the front has been used as a theatre costume design room, hence the style of storage but would make a private office or peaceful bedroom with an attractive fireplace. Up the central stairs there are two double bedrooms on the first floor. The front room has an open fire within a marble surround and at the back, the bedroom has a basin and the remains of a west facing balcony, the only one along this terrace so open to the south, which would be a great place for teenagers to spill out onto whilst getting ready to go out. Up a floor, past a window in the south wall, the other two light and airy bedrooms each have basins, raising interesting possibilities and the room at the front has lovely views across this charming street.
Bear in mind:
There is no parking on this one way street making it nice and quiet, but there is ample residents parking nearby with no waiting list.
“Walk down to the beach in the morning with a picnic full of freshly baked goodies from the local shops, then hide away on the patio with friends when it gets too hot”
