Why you’ll like it
These pretty terraced streets which climb the hill between Preston and Hove Park are wonderfully peaceful, and this house has pride of place being raised up on the western side, so from almost every room, the windows are framing stunning far reaching views, and being so open to the city maximises the light and feeling of space throughout.
You approach the smart red brick exterior up a few steps to the raised pavement, and past colorful and scented blooms to the slate grey front door. This opens directly into the beautifully bright open plan ground floor, and the quality of this property is immediately clear. The floors are solid oak, and the walls are pristine in white, as is the woodwork on the multi pane sash windows. The kitchen forms an L shape to the rear of the room, where the units gleam in white gloss and the fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and hob are all integrated. There’s further seamless storage under the stairs, so this space can remain sleek and clutter free. The dining table is central to the room, and lit from above by a pendant light, and the front of the room is cosy with comfortable sofas and chairs.
The garden is accessed from here, and being built into the hillside means it is raised up, and is decked almost level with the first floor. This is a real suntrap in the summer when the sun is high in the sky, and has ample space for a table and chairs for dining al fresco. There’s also space for a shed, and there are raised beds for your plants. The walled gardens surrounding make for an attractive outlook, and you don’t feel overlooked at all.
The stairs to the first floor have a stylish striped carpet, but this floor and the one above also has new solid oak boards, this time in ashy tones to lift and brighten the rooms further. The master bedroom is generous, and has space in the alcoves for freestanding wardrobes, and the views only get better to the front as you climb higher - a joy to wake up to in the morning. The single bedroom is perfect as a child’s bedroom or as a home office, and there’s a deep storage cupboard in here which goes right under the stairs to the second floor. The bathroom is also on this floor, and is on trend with white metro bricks around the bath, and mineralised slate tiles on the floor. The suite is modern with a shower over the bath, and there’s handy shelving for fluffy towels and toiletries.
This floor has a slightly ‘cottage’ feel to it with a quaint turning staircase leading to the bedroom in the loft conversion. This house has benefitted from an early front dormer, so not only does it allow for the extra headroom to make this a good size double bedroom, but it is from here that the views truly come into their own, and this is definitely the place to be on bonfire night when these vast skyscapes are lit up across the city.
Bear in Mind:
There’s a small utility space at the bottom of the stairs - tucked away, and this fits an upright washer with shelves above for your laundry.
‘This has been a great house to start raising our family. With two parks nearby and the the city so easily accessible by car, bus and train, means getting around with the kids is easy. If our family wasn’t growing further we would stay!’
