What the owner says: 'We loved this house from the moment we saw it and we have enjoyed doing all the things that have enhanced it and made it our happy and welcoming home. It has been a fun filled busy house with the top two bedrooms forming the teenage suite for our two children and their friends. Subsequently the same rooms have proved wonderful guest rooms - especially the top rear room with its view over Brighton to the sea; and finally a nursery for our grandchildren.
We have loved the quirkiness of the three very different outside areas - the tranquility of the cool shaded garden; the secure balcony off the breakfast room with its wooded aspect, accessibility and fun where we can have morning coffee whilst the birds visit the feeders, the cat basks in the sun and the grandchildren play safely; and finally the roof terrace with its amazing Brighton views especially when there are fireworks; and a brilliant space for drying washing; catching the sun and making a vegetable garden.
Our office has made working from home a pleasure although the views from the window can be somewhat distracting.
Our large downstairs lounge/dining room; kitchen and breakfast room has seen many a large family gathering and many bring a dish parties for 30 or more friends at a time.
The location of our home has been wonderful for feeling at the heart of Brighton life - walking into town; lots of buses; the train on our doorstep; and the proximity to Preston Park where so many iconinc Brighton events are focussed. Even the commute up to London is bearable when you only need 2 minutes to get to the train.
Now 20 years on, with the teenagers grown and flown the nest it is time for us to move on to less stairs and a smaller home. It is the sort of home that is sad to leave and we hope that future owners have as much pleasure here as we have done.'
