Full descriptionBeautiful 4 Bedroom Detached House with Sea Views and South-Facing Garden.
Set back from the road in a highly sought after Hove area, this immensely elegant house was originally designed by the architect Philip Keating in 1937 and features Arts & Crafts detailing with its leaded windows, solid oak doors and distinctive oak panelling.
Conveniently located for all that Brighton and Hove has to offer, behind the classic brick facade a tastefully presented home comes complete with the original line drawn plans and offers the potential to extend.
In More Detail - Arranged over two floors, solid oak floors, exposed beams and period fireplaces combine with modern interior design features to create a beautiful example of contemporary living in a period property.
Ground Floor - A distinguished solid oak front door opens onto a generous hallway where light, flooding in though leaded windows, creates an instantly warm and inviting feel against the rich tones of the refined oak wall panels and original floorboards.
Natural light tumbles into the main reception room from wide leaded French doors opening onto the terrace, highlighting the exposed oak beams and an impressive open brick fireplace. Additional stained glass windows sit either side of the fireplace adding to the elegant feel and the amply-sized room has a distinguished yet relaxed air.
The generous proportions of a well-appointed bespoke kitchen, with its solid oak cabinets and granite countertops, easily accommodates a kitchen island. Sitting in and amongst the classically-styled cabinets, integrated appliances offer the conveniences of a modern lifestyle, while the large island benefits from a feature oak countertop and additional sink. A second set of leaded French doors open onto to the terrace perfectly extending this sociable space that lends itself perfectly to incorporate a large family dining table. A discreet utility room provides plenty of space for laundry appliances.
At the front of this attractive property, two further reception rooms offer the versatility to be used as a study, formal dining room or snug, combining a heritage colour scheme with their exposed beams, dado rails and leaded windows.
A stylish guest WC/cloakroom completes the ground floor.
First Floor - Curving up to the first floor, the solid oak staircase sweeps past a tall window, beautifully lighting the first floor where four double bedrooms provide ideal family and guest accommodation.
A master bedroom looks out over the south-facing rear garden and down to the coast and while a wall of fitted wardrobes provides ample storage, under-eaves cupboards remind you of the charm and character of this 1930s home.
Two further bedrooms enjoy sea views whilst a third offers ideal dual space potential.
A family shower room features a Heritage suite arranged in a distinguished blue tile setting with feature peacock trim, while across the hallway a separate bathroom offers the chance to relax in an inset bath complete with period-style telephone taps.
Accessed from the hallway, a large loft with window provides the potential to extend this family home still further (subject to the correct consents).
Outside - To the front of the property, a mature laburnum tree surrounded by the vivid colours of fuchsias, hydrangeas and Japanese anemones creates an inviting and picture-perfect first impression. A brick driveway offers convenient off-road parking.
The French doors of the main reception room and the kitchen open onto an impressively sized south-facing paved terrace which wraps itself across the full width of the house. Ideal for entertaining with its vine covered pergola, a raised pond adds an idyllic finishing touch. This incredibly private and peaceful outdoor space leads down to a wide well-kept lawn providing the additional opportunity to sit and enjoy sunny afternoons and warm summer evenings in a classic English garden.
