Why you’ll like it:
This is a sought after location in a thriving, friendly community by Queen’s Park with great transport links to central Brighton and the Universities. This attractive period property is on a quiet tree lined street and is set privately behind a pebbled front garden and already has large energy efficient windows in place so you know that it’s going to be light inside, particularly as it is at the end of the terrace so will have windows on the side too.
The smart front door opens into a practical lobby leading into an elegant living room where the sun streams through the two big south facing windows and the unusually large window in the far wall brings the sights and scents of the garden inside so this room, with its high ceiling, generous floor space and beautiful leaded doors feels lovely and airy. For cooler evenings there is an attractive gas fire within a sandstone surround which has a child safety catch already in place and the door in the far wall takes you through into another sunny room to enjoy – the contemporary kitchen. With windows in two walls you can imagine how light this room is and the white units were carefully chosen for their reflective qualities as was the gleaming black granite underfoot. There are plenty of bamboo work surfaces and there is no need to clutter the space as there is a deep under stair cupboard and a conservatory next door which has plumbing for a machine and space for an under counter freezer. Used as an artists’ studio, the conservatory still has about 6 years on the guarantee for the glazing and it has both a door to the garden as well as to a rare to find side gate, ideal for bikes and paws.
The largest garden of the terrace, it has been skillfully landscaped with the herbs, fruits and vegetables nearest to the kitchen and the other beds around a central lawn and gravelled pathway have magnificent statement planting. There is a raised seating area to catch the last of the sun as it sets over the Downs – which you can see- and it is worth having a look at the breadth and depth of the side return between this house and the neighbouring wall which should provide food for thought.
Returning inside, the modern bathroom at the top of the stairs is decorated in the colours of the sea and is big enough for a bath, an airing cupboard and a separate shower. A few steps take you up to a broad landing with access to the attic and on the right, the first of the peaceful double bedrooms has a lofty ceiling and looks over the garden. The master bedroom spans the full width of the house and with trees outside and, unique to this row, a garden opposite, the views are leafy and there is even a glimpse of the sea!
Bear in mind:
Houses in this popular location within easy reach of the sea and the city whilst being close to a park bursting with leisure facilities and a highly rated primary school do not come onto the market often and this one has potential to extend out and up.
“The light streams through the whole ground floor so it is lovely and light even in winter and we spend the summers outside in the garden”
