Why you’ll like it:

Hanover is a central location popular with young professionals and families and this house is near the bottom of the hill, close to the revamped Level, in a street of elegant houses built from 1822. Through a front garden, the door opens into a welcoming open room with a working fireplace for cosy winter evenings. Wooden floorboards are underfoot and lots of light pours in through the big windows at each end of this sociable space. The front bay is especially broad and tall with a window seat which doubles as storage and there are stylish shelves and cupboards at each end as well, so the room isn’t cluttered. 

In the far wall, the door leads through to a bright and cheerful kitchen with hand -made units and shelving and family friendly work surfaces. The multi fuel cooker could stay subject to circumstance and negotiation and plumbing is already in place for a machine. Ahead, the door opens onto a small but perfectly formed roof terrace, the only one in sight and which has built in seating, shaded by the boughs of a conker tree where you can sit and enjoy the birdsong.

Returning inside, downstairs has a double bedroom at the front with a large window looking out onto a light well with room for plants and next door, the second bedroom is also a good size and has views of the walled courtyard and its back gate which is reached via a small lane behind. The door out to it is in what is currently a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, and at the far end is wet room style shower with a glass brick panel providing plenty of light whilst ensuring privacy.

Up on the first floor, the airy master bedroom spans the whole of the front of this house and built in around 1870 in an age dependant on natural light, the eastern wall has a lovely deep and broad bay window. Next door the fourth bedroom has leafy views of the trees in the lane behind and the gardens of Hanover Crescent and last but by no means least, the bright and cheerful bathroom has a vaulted roof, exposed beams and brick work and there is a modern shower above the bath.

Bear in mind:

People are realising that Hanover provides spacious homes close to the sea, shops and the station, and this one has interesting options for the lower floor as well as the attic.

Owner’s secret:

“Walk to the beach, the cinema and the shops, then enjoy returning to the quiet, friendly community here”
