Why you’ll like it:

Quietly situated in fashionable Hanover, this sky blue home has been lovingly restored since 2011. The result is a bright family home brimming with character and with rather glamorous touches.

Light streams through this house which has plentiful and large windows – energy efficient, naturally, - even the hallway is bright and inviting with high ceilings and designer carpet. On your left is the formal reception, currently used as a study which has two generous windows. There is an elegant open fireplace with attractive tiles, and the current owner has made subtle use of colour, making the room feel very sophisticated; inventive use of colour is a feature of this stylish home. 

As this first room is more usually used as a double bedroom in Hanoverian houses, next door is a luxurious bathroom big enough for both a double ended bath and separate shower with a rainfall head. Chicly decorated in shades of grey with water coloured glass border on the wall, the tall chrome radiator, where you can warm your towels, completes the spa like feel, and there is plenty of storage, vital in a busy house.

Stairs with a detachable bannister lead you down to a stunning open plan kitchen/dining/living room. With painted wooden floorboards throughout, the living space at the front of the room has a magnificent east facing window which is protected from the street above by a narrow strip of clear glass, which means this is very private, but when you sit beneath the window, you are gazing up at blue sky! There are fitted shelves on either side of the wood burning stove for books and a television, and the sleek SCHULLER kitchen is at the garden end of the room. Streamlined grey units topped with smooth corian work surfaces create a calm working cooks atmosphere and are complimented by a damson central island which doubles as a breakfast bar where friends can sit and chat as you cook on the touch induction hob opposite which has an AEG electric oven integrated beneath it. The sinks are placed beneath the window to the garden with an integrated dishwasher to the right of it- the washing machine is integrated into units ingeniously fitted under the stairs. Ahead, the door leads out into the west facing garden, which is on two levels and open on the south side, so that the garden has the sun for most of the day. The first wide decked level has lighting in place for al fresco dining and steps down into a level with clever storage under the dining decking and which is made private by scented climbers and established fig trees.

On the first floor, there is a second double bedroom at the back, looking over the garden and beyond to some of the most remarkable views of Brighton including the tree tops of Preston Park, and in the far distance toy sized trains glitter across John Raistrick’s Viaduct, with its 27 arches and over a million bricks. The master bedroom spans the whole of the front of the house, with two double wardrobes on either side of the period fireplace and a gracious sash window faces east to help you to wake up in the morning!

Bear in mind:

A rainbow of steps take you up into the attic with plenty of floor space and fair headroom, and which has velux windows to the east and west, making this a wonderfully light and airy space, which also has extra under eaves storage.

Owner’s secret:

With the fantastic open plan layout of the living space, the house lends itself perfectly for entertaining.

Where it is:

Shops: North Lanes 10 minute walk

Train Station: Brighton mainline 14 minutes walk

Seafront or Park: Queen’s Park 5 minute, seafront is about a 10 minute walk

Closest Schools:

Primary: Queen’s Park Primary, St Luke’s

Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College

Like Rome, Brighton is built on hills, and Hanover is a lively incline from the City which stretches up from Victoria Gardens to the Queen’s Park, popular with young professionals and families due to its accessibility to the City and popular schools. Its proximity to the mainline station and the A23/27 make this home a viable proposition for those needing fast links to the Airports and London on a daily, or weekly basis.
