These have been blended with a contemporary colour palette, and with generous room proportions this is an extremely impressive property. It also has a tranquil, south facing rear garden, and is within easy walking distance of both Hove and Brighton Stations, and several popular schools, so it really is the perfect home for a growing family.

Why you’ll like it
Like many houses built in the 1930s, this terrace has an attractive facade of red brick, white render, hung tiles, and a gabled roof, and this one in particular has been very well maintained. The wide bay windows are efficiently double glazed, but with a leaded effect so popular for the period, and new, traditional chequerboard path leads you to the original front door. This opens to welcome you into a broad hallway, where polished oak floors flow into the living and dining room on the right. The hallway also has an ample under stair storage cupboard which houses the washing machine, and there’s a further door to a downstairs WC, plus a recessed area for hanging coats and organising shoes- both essential in any shared/family space.
The through living and dining room stretches the depth of the house, and is wonderfully light due to the double doors opening out to the south. Both chimney breasts have the potential to have open fires, but they are currently just fireplace openings with exposed brick - on trend, and perfect for a wood burning stove.
The kitchen is to the left of the dining area; open for convenience, but very much in it’s own space. The units are plenty in white gloss, and the slate grey floor tiles complement the work surfaces. The dishwasher and oven are integrated below, and the fridge and freezer are integrated in a tower alongside the Hotpoint oven. There’s a five ring gas hob, and behind this a ruby glass splashback adds colour and interest. The garden can also be accessed from here, and this has been completely refurbished creating a raised, decked sun terrace with storage below, with steps leading down to the easy maintenance and top quality astroturf lawn. A further decked seating area lines the back wall where there’s yet more storage, and some welcome shade is provided by planting above. Wooden sleepers provide raised beds for colourful planting, and you are barely overlooked due to the position of the house within the terrace.
The stairs to the first floor come to a long landing, and the family bathroom is directly ahead. This is a contemporary space with porcelain tiles in urban concrete; gloss on the walls and matt around the bath and on the floor. The suite is white with a rainfall shower above, and a tall heated towel rail completes the polished look.
The double bedrooms on this floor are both very generous, and have wool oatmeal carpets for added comfort. The doors are original, but have been stripped and varnished, and the bedroom to the front has the original wardrobe built into the alcove. A further flight of stairs takes you to the master bedroom in the loft conversion. This doesn’t have a dormer, but headroom is not compromised at all. There’s a seamless wall of sliding doors to reveal several different storage solutions for hanging clothes, drawers for folding, and space for shoes, and there’s further eaves storage too. Again the light is maximised through two south facing Velux windows, and it really does feel very tranquil here, tucked away from the rest of the house.
Bear in Mind:
There is a wood burning stove in place in the living room, but the chimney liner has not been fitted, so it is for decorative purpose only, and would need professional investigation to ensure its safe use.
‘This has been a fantastic family home, and the perfect place to raise the children. The neighbours are fantastic, and there’s a real community feel where we often hold street parties, and the children often play in the gardens together.”
