Why you’ll like it: 


With its leafy location and peaceful gardens, this beautiful home balances the convenience of the city with a quieter friendly community together with easy access to the Downs and the sea. Set back from the broad residential street by a neat front garden and hardstanding for two cars, this smart 1970’s house with an integral double garage has been totally transformed inside to create a sociable family home with a two storey glass extension and an emphasis on the flow of natural light.


The main door is privately tucked away to one side and opens into an inviting hallway which is double height by the front door and ahead, a sculptural staircase leads up past three tall Mackintosh inspired stain glass windows which fill the whole space with gently coloured light. To your left, sunshine streams into the elegant living room through a graceful, floor to ceiling bay window which looks across front gardens to glimpses of the sea. A stylish beech parquet floor with delicate inlaid detail works well with the shimmering designer paper to keep the space light and there is ample room for sofas where you can curl up on cooler evenings in front of the flame effect fireplace and with dimmer switches, you can choose your mood. As all main rooms in the house, there is cabling in place for television as well as the internet.


Across the hallway, past a discreet guest cloakroom, the parquet floor is also a feature in the spacious dining room, giving a seamless feeling of flow and the wall opposite is all glass, looking through the fabulous media room into the verdant garden. Bringing the outside in, the glamorous media room has an industrial chic look with exposed brick and steels and has two glass walls, one of which folds open to the garden in the summer, whilst in winter it transforms into a warm and cosy haven when you close the energy efficient doors, switch on the contemporary fire and snuggle up to watch a movie. Next door, the bright and cheerful kitchen also enjoys views of the sun terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and raised lawn and has plenty of cherry wood units topped by family friendly work surfaces. The fabulous Rangemaster Professional will stay and there is space for a tall fridge freezer and plumbing for a machine. As you would expect of a house of this quality of finish, there is a separate utility room, designed with as much care as the main kitchen and which leads to a heated lobby with a door to the side gate as well as the internal door to the double garage with remote controlled rolling doors and ample room for bikes and boards. 


Upstairs, the master bedroom is in prime position on the south west corner and has a chic en suite large enough for a shaped double ended bath with a shower at one end and a heated rail is close to hand. Large French doors in the west wall open to a spacious roof terrace with spectacular views which reach from the sparkling sea to the rolling green of the Downs, the perfect place for morning tea or private nightcaps when the children are in bed. Next door, the guest room shares sea views and has fitted wardrobes already in place and there is a third peaceful bedroom at the back of the house, currently used as a study and next to the airy family shower room. Also at the back, the fourth double room is a generous size and leads into an amazing, vaulted art studio/study where the glass walls reach right up to the apex and bring in more fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. The tilt and turn door allows you to bring in the birdsong and scents of the garden whilst resting your elbows on the glass Juliette balcony and, designed for all year use, the steel shutters give shade in summer and keep the warmth of the trench floor heating in during  the cooler months.
