Why you’ll like it:

A home since 1856 when W Faux Esq., an accountant moved in, this unusual semi- detached cottage is quietly tucked away on a one way street on the edge of the chic North Laines and now provides airy rooms ideal for a contemporary life style. Backing on to the grounds of the Regent Iron Foundry whose work features in the nearby station and which is now a post office, a unique feature of this home is that is not overlooked at the rear, rare in this super, central location.

Outside, this cream house with newly refurbished timber framed, energy efficient windows has lots of appeal and inside, a small lobby opens into a stylish living room with plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining. The big windows, generous ceiling height and gleaming floorboards keep the room light and French doors in the far wall open into a central courtyard with steps up to the fabulous west facing area which has room for al fresco dining. Open and airy in the summer, the cottage transforms into a warm and cosy refuge in the winter when you close the doors and light the multi fuel stove and the dimmer switches mean that you can choose your mood. 

Past under stair storage the glazed door leads through into a chic kitchen with both a big window looking over the central courtyard and a big skylight, so you can cook beneath the open sky and there are ample ivory units providing smooth, practical work surfaces. Fashionable grey, white and blue tiling give a polished finish and the mirrored five ring Zanussi hob is gas. Also integrated for you are the electric oven and extractor and plumbing is in place for a washing machine. At the far end to the left, the bright and cheerful bathroom is decorated in the colours of the sea, a gentle reminder that the beach is only a walk away, and there is a shower attachment as well as a shower head above the bath with a heated rail for towels to hand.

Upstairs, the first of the double rooms is private as it looks over the attractive roof area to the striking lines of the post office behind and across the hall is a second w.c., useful in a shared home. The master bedroom has restful proportions as it spans the full width of the house and the window faces east for the morning sun. Perfect!

Bear in mind:

You can walk within minutes to the shops, clubs, restaurants, theatres, beach and the station from this house.
