In More Detail -

Ground Floor - The rich tones of an original wood floor stretch throughout a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room instantly creating an inviting feel.

Beautifully lit from dual aspect windows, the open plan area offers ample space for a large dining table, ideal for family meals or entertaining. Fully fitted with gloss white cabinets and integrated Neff appliances, the modern kitchen opens onto a generously proportioned paved patio, perfectly extending this versatile and sociable ground floor.

Continuing the clean line design of white walls and wood floors, natural light flows into two double bedrooms on this floor. While both of these elegant rooms benefit from plenty of dual space potential and ample space for freestanding furniture, the master bedroom also offers the chance to enjoy sea views from the comfort of your own bed.

White wood floorboards and glass mosaics allow the morning sunlight to bounce around a large family bathroom where an inset bath sits beneath a large opaque window and a separate walk-in shower is encompassed by crisp white tiles.

A separate utility room with a butler sink and WC completes the ground floor.

First Floor - An open tread staircase leads up to the first floor where a dual aspect living room adds an instant wow factor to this stylish home.

South-facing patio doors open onto a classic black iron balcony offering panoramic views stretching down to the sea and across to the South Downs, creating a beautiful space for enjoying warm summer evenings.

The adjacent bedroom continues the feeling of light and space and benefits from views of the expansive rear garden. Currently configured as a home office/study, there is plenty of potential to convert a large walk-in cupboard into an en suite bathroom (subject to the correct consents).

Outside - Providing the master bedroom with a wonderful amount of natural privacy, mature palm trees and an ivy clad hedge combine to create a classic coastal garden at the front of this detached home.

The French doors of the kitchen open onto a breath-taking rear garden which offers something for everyone. A well-kept lawn is bordered by an established array of anemones, roses and shrubs, providing plenty of colour and interest throughout the seasons. Curved stone benches encircle a garden table ideally positioned for outdoor meals and relaxing with the weekends papers, while the immense outdoor space leads onto a secluded second lawn, easily accommodating a stable and paddock for ponies. Benefiting from yet more fantastic views of the Downs and the sea, a path leads you through an amazing amount of land within the South Downs National Park with access to bridleways and footpaths, allowing you to chase the sun to your hearts content.

Along with a private driveway, a brick built garage offers ample, secure off-road parking and storage.

What The Owner Says - "When we first saw this house in 2004, we knew as soon as we got out of the car that this house was perfect.

On a sunny day there's nothing better than being out in the field or upstairs for the view of the sea. It's wonderful to be able to watch a full moon reflecting on the sea or sitting in the rear garden with a glass of chardonnay watching the sun set.

This house has all the charm of a beach house without the noise of being right on the seafront.

Apart from the beautiful views, we'll definitely miss the open plan kitchen and dining room. It's a great entertaining room, allowing you to cook and chat to guests and we've seated over twenty guests there.

It's so easy to commute and living here means you can enjoy nights out in London and get the train home. We chose this home over a place in the Cotswolds as it gives you access to the rest of the world."

In The Local Area - With the South Downs right on your doorstep, Wivelsfield Road is also within easy reach of the seafront and the iconic Saltdean Lido.

Sitting beneath the distinctive white cliffs, a shingle beach features an undercliff walk along the sea wall stretching all the way to Brighton Marina. Local shops on Longridge Avenue offer plenty of convenience while nearby Rottingdean has a wide variety of classic tea shops, restaurants and bars.

Local schools include Saltdean Primary School, St Margaret's C of E Primary School, Our Lady of Lourdes RC School and St Aubyn's School, while the ever popular independent Roedean School for girls is only a short distance away.

Regular bus services travel along the A259 into the centre of Brighton and Hove and also eastwards to Newhaven with its ferry terminal. Brighton train station offers convenient mainline commuter links to London, while nearby Southease station is on the Seaford Branch of the East Coastway Line.

We wish to inform prospective purchasers that we have prepared these sales particulars as a general guide. We have not carried out a detailed survey, nor tested the services, appliances and specific fittings.
