Known sweetly as ‘The Cottage’, this detached Victorian house is much like many of the terraces in Poets Corner in pretty pastel shades with delicate architectural details. The current owners clearly have a keen eye for colour and design, and have blended the period features of the house with contemporary styling. Not only is the interior immaculate, but below the aesthetics, the house has been rewired, re plumbed and re rendered in many places, so the house, with its charm and character will last for many, many more years to come. The walk to the beach, Hove Station, several popular schools and parks, and the shops and amenities of Portland Road is easy, so this house is sure to be coveted by many.

Bedrooms: 3 double

Living rooms: 2; 1 living, 1 dining

Why you’ll like it:

This house sits on a quiet street in Poets Corner, and is unusual, as it is detached unlike its neighbours. The exterior is fresh in dove grey with the architectural detailing picked out in white, and the smart blue front door opens up to a long bright hallway. The ceilings are high and superior quality timber laminate floors flow throughout this floor for unity and into the living room on the right. This has a wide bay window facing east, and well maintained Deco fireplace with ‘like new’ tiles in rust, and a decorative white mantle. There are alcoves in which to put shelves or hang paintings, and there’s ample space for comfortable sofas and chairs.

Further along the hallway is the kitchen which was fitted only a month ago, and comes with a new Smeg range cooker, and integrated dishwasher and washing machine. The units are on trend with a matt finish and in the palest grey tone, as are the white metro tiles as splashbacks. The south westerly wall is fully glazed with charcoal framed bi-folding doors, and these open up to a surprisingly spacious walled garden. This is paved with brick walls, and these are topped with delicate bamboo fencing for added privacy. There’s a bed ripe for planting on the westerly corner, and being open to the south means it gets the sun all day in the summer.

The dining room is accessed from the kitchen, but backs onto the living room, and a generous space for a dining table to seat at least eight. There is also a breakfast bar for less formal dining, or so that friend can chat to you as you cook.

The original wooden stairs take you up to the first floor where bedroom three is ahead. This room is often used as a study as the rear rooms are so peaceful and look out over the gardens, but this would also be perfect for guests of a child’s bedroom too.

The bathroom is next door, and was extended to use some of bedroom three making it a great size for families. The ceramic wall tiles echo the wood of the ground floor, and lighter marble effect floor tiles brighten the room. The modern bath suite is angular, and wider at one end for extra elbow room, and a monsoon shower head and chrome heated towel rail complete the polished look.

Bedrooms one and two are found up a couple more steps on the upper landing, and both have decorative period fireplaces. The master bedroom is the larger of the two spanning the width of the house and has a bay window above the living room’s. As with the room below, there are alcoves for your bedroom furniture so the floor space is not compromised.

This is a beautifully maintained home, in a hugely popular area, so it is sure to be snapped up.

Bear in mind:

The loft is yet to be developed, but subject to the relevant planning permissions, it could be converted into a spacious fourth bedroom.

Owner’s secret

“We have loved transforming this house; bringing it back to it’s former glory, but as our family grows further we need more space so we won’t be moving far. This is such a fantastic area to raise the children, with great schools and parks, and the beach is only 10 minutes down the road.”
