Why you’ll like it: 


With its leafy location and peaceful gardens, this beautiful home balances the convenience of the city with easy access to the Downs and the sea. In a premier position allowing for stunning views over this verdant residential area, this striking house stands out even from its prosperous neighbours. Stepped up from the quiet road, the impressive entrance introduces you to a discreet theme running behind the expert design – the house is intended to be low maintenance, rendered in white, with energy efficient windows. PIR lighting guides you to the garage and up the glass and steel stairway to the smart front door – or side gate if a dog is with you, and inside, the broad hallway is inviting with oak underfoot and plenty of storage for coats and bags.


The Guest Room


Thoughtfully designed, a guest bedroom or quiet office is privately situated at the front of the house and at the foot of the stairs is a luxury bathroom with room for both a double ended bath and a wet room style shower which has a fashionable drench head. Sleek porcelain conceals underfloor heating and a sculptural rail warms your towels, whilst the wide hand basin rests on stylish storage for those all- important beauty products. 


The Living Room and Family Kitchen/Diner


Opposite, the freshly painted and newly carpeted living room is full of light thanks to the large window and open views and would be ideal as either a formal, grown up reception or family snug. The crowning jewel of this house, however, is at the end of the hallway, where glass and oak double doors sweep you through into the magnificent family kitchen. Big, beautiful and bright this is a real cooks’ kitchen, the streamlined units concealing sophisticated storage whilst the composite work surfaces are family friendly. A central island provides a base where the children or your partner can sit and work whilst you prepare the incentive to finish, although there is plenty of room for a dining table and even sofas as well. Underfloor heating keeps toes cosy in the mornings and all of the appliances, including the 5 ring gas hob, glamorous extractor, ovens, fridge, freezer and machines are of high specification and are integrated for you, so all you have to do is concertina open the south, glass wall to bring the garden in and start the party in the summer, or in winter, close the doors, light the wood burner and set the led lighting above the units to a warm glow.


The Garden


Outside, the garden has a paved terrace ideal for al fresco dining in the sunshine or beneath the shade of a gazebo hidden away to one side and there is lighting in place for suppers when the children are in bed. Wide steps lead up to the second level which has a lawn for sunbathing and grass steps lead around to a third level, made private by trees and shrubs. 


Two Double Bedrooms


At the top of the stairs, two peaceful double bedrooms are ready to move into with thick grey carpet, white walls and high ceilings, and the room at the back has French doors which open to a glass Juliette balcony so you can fully enjoy the scents of the garden. 


The Master Bedroom and En Suite


At the far end of the hallway the quiet, luxurious master bedroom of generous proportions also looks over the garden and with the French doors open, all you can hear is birdsong. There is a glamorous en suite bathroom with a separate shower and as you would expect of a house of this quality, there is underfloor heating as well as a heated rail.


Bear in mind:


This is effectively a newly built house with new roof, electricity and plumbing which is finished to a high standard.
