Why you’ll like it:


This beautiful house is on a sought after Victorian terrace with elegant, cared for homes displaying window boxes and plant pots and which, although close to the cafes and shops of the Village, is protected from traffic noise. The smart front door opens into a hallway with delicate period features and to your right the ground floor has been opened up to create an impressive, light reception with a big bay, an open fireplace and central doors to keep your options open. Gleaming wood is underfoot, the ceiling is high above your head and behind you generous French doors open to bring a spacious sun terrace into this stylish entertaining area, bringing in south facing sunny views, surprisingly difficult to find in this city where most homes are built obliquely to the sea.


Along the hallway which has lights inset into the floor, the designers’ eye of the owner comes to the fore in this dramatic black and white kitchen where a penchant for natural light means that you can cook under the sky and part of the west wall is also floor to ceiling glass bringing in lots of afternoon sun. The touch induction hob, electric cooker and extractor are all integrated for you as are the dishwasher and washing machine and there is ample room for a tall fridge freezer.


Heading down the stairs, the lower floor is light and airy with a private entrance to the street and a cavern for bikes beneath the pavement. Currently a self- contained apartment, the generous double bedroom  has a big sash window at the front whilst the characterful living room, which has retained the original Range, opens into a delightful flint walled patio. The kitchen is practical and bright, with plumbing for a machine and the shower room at the end is tiled from floor to ceiling.


This house just keeps on giving with a glamorous sun terrace on the first landing which is a real sun trap with lovely roof top views although take care as the railing needs replacing. Next to it is a chic cloakroom and a few steps deliver you to a broad landing with access to the big attic. A peaceful double bedroom on your left looks over the garden and is relatively private for this location as the houses behind are lower. At the front of the house a wonderfully atmospheric bathroom has a claw footed bath where you can bathe beneath the stars and next door, the restful master bedroom has a lofty ceiling and attractive fireplace. Up at the very top of the house, the attic has a wooden ladder you can pull down and has good head height, under eave storage and stunning sea views through the large south facing velux windows.



Bear in mind:


A little attention will go a long way in this spacious house which has interesting possibilities.
