Why you’ll like it:

Step up past a delightful front garden and into a tranquil family home with lots of appeal. Looking very traditional from the outside with bay windows, a smart front door and garden with a productive olive tree, the inside has been beautifully refurbished over the past few years to create a bright home perfect for modern living, and walking into a traditionally tiled lobby with fabulous Cole and Son Moby Dick wallpaper, you immediately get a sense of the expert blend of old and new that you will find inside.

The welcoming hallway has refreshingly high ceilings and underfoot, the oak flooring continues into the elegant living room of triple depth which allows the room to be discreetly zoned into living, reading, dining and cooking areas. Light and airy, the large bay window at the front faces east for the morning and at the back, twin sky lights and a wall of glass bring in the afternoon sunshine as well as connecting these spaces to the garden, so guests can flow seamlessly between the two. Light and airy in the summer with all the windows and doors open, in winter, the doors close, the fire is lit and the dimmer switches ensure a warm and cosy atmosphere. At the back of the house, the current owners have placed their dining table beneath the roof lights so you can dine under the stars and the stylish kitchen is tucked away behind a smart peninsular island topped by smooth, family hardy silestone. The magnificent multi fuel Italian range will stay as will the fridge and freezer and as the dishwasher is integrated, you can just slide the west wall across and start the party.

Outside, steps lead up to a delightful, flint walled garden with a built in bbq and plenty of room for al fresco dining. With attractive climbing plants and lined with easy care astro turf, this space is sunny and secure, ideal for children and pets.

Returning inside, there is a guest cloakroom with fired earth tiles and plumbing for the washing machine and going upstairs beneath a sky light, you emerge into a glamorous bathroom where you can enjoy your Cleopatra moment as you step into the deep, claw footed bath, open the door to the scents of the garden and watch the clouds scudding overhead. Large enough for a separate walk in shower with a rainfall head, there is also a marble enclosed hand basin, very contemporary underfloor heating for cosy toes and a copper rail warms your towels, too.

On the first floor, the first of the quiet double bedrooms looks over the garden and spanning the whole of the width of the house, the master bedroom has a restful, high ceiling, fitted wardrobes and a romantic wood burning stove. Up at the top of the house, two more peaceful bedrooms await, one with open, verdant views of gardens and the other with fantastic views across the city with a window so big you can enjoy them even from bed, which is why the current owners often stay in it!

Bear in mind:

Houses in this great location do not come onto the market very often, and this one also has a large boarded attic space with good head room and broad windows in the east roof for natural light and which also happens to bring in stunning sea views. 

Owner’s secret:

“We love being able to access all of the different parts of this eclectic city so easily. The commute is a dream, but best of all is when we return home to our little oasis of calm and lie in bed, watching for the moment when the moon is reflected in the sea” 

Where it is:

Shops: 7 Dials and North Laines both about 4 minute walk, local 2 mins

Train Station: Brighton under a 5 minute walk

Seafront or Park: Seafront 15 mins on the bus, St Nicholas’ Rest Garden 7 minutes walk

Closest Schools:

Primary: St Paul’s C of E

Secondary: Varndean, Sringer, Cardinal Newman, BHASVIC

Private: Brighton College, Brighton and Hove High

Within minutes of the seafront and the fashionable Western Road, this elegant home offers easy access to all that this vibrant coastal city has to offer but is on a quiet residential street. This exceptional house is also conveniently located for schools and recreation facilities, including parks and churches which host events in the festivals, and its proximity to Brighton Station, with its excellent links to Gatwick and London make this a viable possibility for those who need to travel.
