Unique 6 Bedroom Detached Art Deco House with Guest Suite

Set back from a wide tree-lined road in a highly sought after area of Hove, this elegant home dates back to circa 1936. The distinctive curves of its white facade, rich tones of the oak panelling and colourful hues of stained glass windows all combine to create a stunning example of art deco architecture at its very best.

Conveniently located for all that Brighton and Hove has to offer and only a short walk to the seafront, a tastefully presented home has been lovingly restored and extended to seamlessly incorporate modern interior design themes alongside 1930s features.

From the geometric patterned oak doors to the bespoke staircase, every aspect of this home is finished with a beautiful attention to detail. EPC Rating D.

In More Detail - Arranged over two floors, en suite bathrooms, a guest suite and a separate garden room combine with curved bay windows, column radiators and a classic English country garden to create a classic example of contemporary living in a period property.

Ground Floor - A breath-taking wall of leaded windows and double doors opens onto a generous oak panelled hallway where soft colours of original stained glass create an instantly warm and inviting feel.

Natural light tumbles into the dual aspect main reception room from a wide bay window highlighting the graceful art deco fireplace. Crisp white walls add to the feeling of elegance, whilst a 1930s style ceiling fan adds to the sense of style.

Multi-paned double doors open from the entrance hall onto a well-proportioned second reception room where a wall of windows and double doors open onto a conservatory and offer views of the attractive rear garden.

Sitting beneath modern LED spotlights in the flowing open plan space, a sitting room area is perfectly proportioned for relaxing with the weekends papers. The well-appointed kitchen, with its sympathetically chosen green quartz countertops, easily accommodates a convenient breakfast bar. Sitting in sleek white cabinets, an American style fridge-freezer and Stoves induction range cooker offer the conveniences of a modern lifestyle, whilst the ample proportions leave room for a family breakfast table.

Wide double doors allow the open plan space to flow into a large conservatory, complete with tall apex ceiling. Currently configured as a formal dining room, French doors open directly onto a spacious patio effortlessly extending this wonderfully versatile and sociable ground floor space still further.

Recently renovated, a separate guest suite runs along the side of the house offering two bedrooms, a contemporary wet-room and its own fitted kitchen.

A separate WC completes the ground floor.

First Floor - Curving up to the first floor, the bespoke oak staircase sweeps past a stunning stained glass arched window, which instantly creates an eye-catching wow factor and reminds you of the charm and character of this renovated home.

Offering views of the sea from its wide bay window, the large master bedroom engenders an instant feeling of peacefulness. A wall of fitted wardrobes provides ample storage and an en suite combines a classic Savoy basin with a modern rain head shower in an art deco style tiled setting.

A second suite is equally well-proportioned and presented with a contemporary en suite encompassed in tasteful stone mosaics, while a third double bedroom opens onto a wide east-facing balcony with views down to the sea.

The ample hallway offers access to the loft and curves round to a fourth bedroom which overlooks the rear garden and offers ideal dual space potential.

The monochrome design of the family bathroom echoes that of the master suite and features a modern L-shaped bath with rectangular overhead shower and a side-mounted Churchmans' telephone-style mixer tap.

Outside - To the front of the property, easy to maintain mature flowerbeds offer an established array of plants and shrubs creating an inviting and picture-perfect first impression. A wide in and out driveway provides off-road parking.

To the rear, an impressively sized patio stretches across the full width of the house. Ideal for entertaining and outdoor meals, an electric awning is on hand to provide a gentle shade when the midday sun is overhead. The large walled garden provides a calm and tranquil oasis with its fruit-bearing apple trees, roses, hebe and hydrangeas, while a detached garden room is wi-fi enabled, providing an ideal space for a separate studio or study.

What The Owner Says - "Some say it's the prettiest house in Hove. Our detached deco residence is known as "that white house with the green roof".

When I first saw the house, although it was very much in the deco style it hadn't been touched since the 1970s and I saw it as a wonderful project to take on.

Having only changed hands once in forty years means it's a home that has been loved. We spend so much time in the kitchen and the garden and it's perfect for dinner parties with friends who come to stay.

We'll really miss the lovely families on the road and being so close to the shops, the beach and the centre of town. Plus we have two wonderful gastropubs just around the corner.

I'll miss everything about it especially the way the tiny specks of bling in the kitchen countertops reflect little rainbows on the ceiling when the sun shines."

In The Local Area - Sitting between the seafront and the bustling caf culture of Church Road, there is an abundance of outdoor facilities close at hand ranging from the beach and promenade to the King Alfred leisure centre and Hove lagoon.

Only minutes away from a Tesco superstore, the shops, bars and restaurants of Church Road and George Street are also close at hand, while a Waitrose supermarket is only a short drive away.

Nearby Hove train station offers convenient mainline links for commuters and regular bus services travel into the centre of Brighton and Hove and up onto The Dyke.

Local schools include St Christopher's School, St Andrew's C of E (Aided) Primary School, West Hove Junior School, along with the recently opened Bilingual Primary School next to Hove Park.
