Full description

Substantial south-facing family home with a rural ambience in the heart of the city.

In brief

On a short avenue that leads directly into the local park, this style of expansive home is more commonly found in the city's outlying suburbs. There's an almost rural feel to its established south-facing garden providing an intense backdrop of varying shades of green. Solidly built in the late 1920s the majority of rooms are south-facing for a home thats both light-filled and naturally warm with interior decor of simple white contrasting with natural wood flooring. Wide bay windows and patio doors allow the sunlight to stream in with superb flow between ground floor rooms opening out to a raised terrace running alongside.
EPC rating C.

In More Detail -

Ground Floor - The large kitchen/diner is fitted by Second Nature with solid wood units towards the cooler north side of the room, topped by Corian work surfaces with aqua glass splash back. Integral are Miele 5-hob, microwave, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and fridge/freezer while heating is concealed beneath the tiled flooring. Patio doors open from the dining area straight out to the extensive terrace.

Ground floor rooms connect effortlessly through double glass doors which can be closed for a more intimate feel. Directly from the kitchen the dining room has a wide box bay window. This room then connects through a further set of doors to the comfortable lounge with a fireplace and with direct access out to the terrace.

There's a ground floor cloakroom off the hallway next to the kitchen and the entrance to the integral garage is by the front door.

First Floor - From the spacious entrance hall a central staircase leads to the first floor where there's a beautiful stained glass panel on the half turn in unison with the circular window by the doorway. An original oak banister follows the neutrally carpeted stairs opening out to the landing.

Three spacious double bedrooms each face south over the garden. French doors with side windows make up most of the south wall of the large master bedroom. In May the balcony becomes a profusion of purple from the flowering wisteria and a beautiful spot to relax whatever the time of day. The adjoining en-suite shower room comes tiled in white. With a wide box bay window the second double follows and is fitted with wardrobe storage while the third double has a distinctive oriel window. Two ample single bedrooms sit at either end of the landing and look onto the front of the property. White tiled, the generously-sized family bathroom has a power shower above the bath and flooring of hard-wearing wood-style Karndean.

Second Floor - Continuing the style of the main staircase, stairs lead up to the converted loft space. Two rooms offer flexibility for guests, home working or studio being one large and one smaller room with lots of natural light from the velux windows and loads of storage in the eaves. There's also an en-suite shower room with borrowed light from glass blocks.

Cellar - The cellar runs under most of the home's footprint and is above ground with a low ceiling providing an area for storage.

Outside - The wide decked terrace is perfect for dining outdoors and summer entertaining with steps leading down to the large secluded garden. Backing onto school playing fields the garden is bordered by mostly evergreen trees as well as eucalyptus and bay. Two apple trees stand towards the back of the lawn flowering with pink and white blossom in the spring. Side access leads around to the front driveway paved for easy off-road parking for two cars with the remainder landscaped with tall palms and plentiful greenery. Solar panels on the roof provide sufficient energy in the summer for all hot water requirements.

What The Owners Say - Being equidistant from Brighton and Hove stations and with a choice of buses running nearby its so easy to get around. Though having such a conveniently central location walking tends to be our preferred option as the seafront, schools and shopping are all so close by. It's a family friendly area with the park's cafe, tennis, bowling and scented garden a mere 30 second stroll away.

We wish to inform prospective purchasers that we have prepared these sales particulars as a general guide. We have not carried out a detailed survey, nor tested the services, appliances and specific fittings.

Room sizes are approximate and rounded: they are taken between internal wall surfaces and therefore include cupboards/shelves etc. Accordingly, they should not be relied upon for carpets and furnishings. Formal notice is also given that all fixtures and fittings, carpeting, curtains/blinds and kitchen equipment, whether fitted or not, are deemed removable by the vendor unless specifically itemised within these particulars.
