Why you’ll like it:
The area of Stoneham and Poets Corner is known as having a wonderful community spirit, with lots of local parks, gastro pubs and shops, and even its own festival. Here, you are also only a short walk to the beach, and Aldrington and Hove Station are in walking distance , making it ever popular with families and professionals alike. This house is tucked away on a quiet residential street on the westerly outskirts of the area, and it has a freshly painted facade in apple white, adorned with the architectural features of the period. A glossy charcoal grey door opens up to a long hallway, where it is immediately apparent that this is a beautifully designed home. High ceilings, warm wooden floors and white walls flow ahead, where you have a clear line of sight through the kitchen to the garden, and the living room is first on the right.
This is a spacious room, with solid wooden shelving built into the alcoves with cupboards below. The fireplace opening now houses the entertainment systems below the wall mounted TV. Natural light pours in from the east through two tall sash windows; frosted on the lower sash with a decorative leaf print cutout, but it is also a cosy room with space for comfortable sofas.
Further along the hallway, you drop down a couple of steps to the chic kitchen diner which has an impressive extension into the side return with a vaulted ceiling complete with veluxes. The kitchen has cream wood units in a shaker style, and these are topped with solid oak worksurfaces. The dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and oven and gas hob are all integrated within these, and the splashbacks are on trend in dove grey metro brick tiling. There’s ample space in here for a sizable dining table and chairs, and double doors open up to the garden making it an extension of the room during the warmer months.
Following the side return back, you come to a family snug room, which gets natural light through two tall frosted panels in the wall joining the living room, plus from the plethora of glazing in the kitchen. It is the perfect space to snuggle up and watch a film, but, being such a versatile space it could easily be a formal dining room too.
The garden has a mediterranean feel with white rendered walls, and it has practical, but high quality astro turf, so no need for mowing. The shed/summer house has electricity to house a spare freezer or wine fridge, but also means you could build a larger home office in its place if need be.
Returning to the house, and passing bounteous under stair storage, you climb the striped stair runner to the first floor. Directly ahead is bedroom three which is currently set up as a tranquil home office with garden views, but could instead fit a double bed, and conveniently next door is the family bathroom which has underfloor heating below the granite floor tiles, and a unique wall motif in circular mosaic tiles. These are blue to complement the classic white suite, and a ceiling hung rainfall showerhead and heated towel rail complete the sophisticated look.
There are two further double bedrooms on this floor, with the master at the front of the house, and this has a secret en suite shower room nestled in between two built in wardrobes. This also has underfloor heating, and a sleek, modern decor much like the rest of the house.
A further flight of stairs takes you to the loft conversion which has bedrooms four and five, with views to the east and the west over the tree and rooftops of the city. While they could both fit a small double bed, the smaller of the two is a large single, and works really well as a child’s bedroom, or again as a home office.
This is a stylish and versatile family home with an abundance of character, which you could move straight into with ease.
Bear in mind:
There is still the potential to make the top two bedrooms into one master ensuite if you choose.
“This is a wonderful area for families, and you are in the catchment for the highly sought after West Hove Primary School too which is a real bonus. We love how social it is here, and we often bump into neighbours at the family friendly local pubs, or at the beach which is a couple of blocks down the road.”
