Full description

Stylish 3 Bedroom House with South-Facing Garden.

Conveniently located in the popular Tivoli area, within easy reach of the bustling cafes and shops of Seven Dials, a classic tiled path leads up to an elegant bay fronted Victorian home.

Offering an easy flowing layout and plenty of scope for extension, period features and a wealth of natural light combine to create a beautiful example of contemporary family living in a period property. EPC Rating D.

Inside - Behind the late Victorian red brick facade an expansive ground floor offers a large main reception room where period cornicing highlights the tall ceiling. Beautifully lit from sash bay windows complete with on-trend colonial style shutters, a black iron fireplace adds a distinguished finishing touch and instantly reminds you of the character of this family home. The period features continue in the adjacent formal dining room where a deep blue wall offers a rich sultry splash of colour.

The extended kitchen/breakfast room is the real heart of this spacious home. A well-appointed modern kitchen offers a wealth of integrated Hotpoint appliances and ample storage in its Shaker style cabinets, while the etched grooves of the sleek black countertops flow into an under-mounted sink. The perfectly proportioned space includes a breakfast/sitting room where French doors open onto a decked terrace, making this an incredibly versatile and sociable space.

Upstairs, three equally well-presented double bedrooms continue the tasteful interior design scheme of the ground floor. A wide sash bay window and additional full height sash window allow plenty of natural light to tumble into the master bedroom creating a calm and relaxing feel. Highlighting yet another beautiful period fireplace, complete with elegant tiled insert, the sash window opens onto a north-facing balcony adding to the sense of space. Two further double bedrooms offer ideal family accommodation.

Arranged in a pale stone tile setting, a freestanding roll-top bath with iconic claw feet creates an instant focal point in the family bathroom, while a corner walk-in shower comes complete with a period style rose head.

Two separate loft spaces provide this late Victorian/early Edwardian home with plenty of scope and potential for expansion and sea views.

Outside - A south-facing landscaped garden offers something for everyone with its decked terrace, well-kept lawn and colourful array of established lavender, Hebe and roses, whilst at the front of the property an easy to maintain white pebble garden creates plenty of kerb appeal.

Seller Insight - "As soon as we walked into this house it felt very homely. It's got such a nice feeling in terms of light and space.

We wanted somewhere with character and with the period features and high ceilings this house has kept its original features yet it's contemporary as well.

Our favourite place to spend time in the summer is in the kitchen, it's a lovely space to entertain guests, while in the winter the living room with its open fire is the place to be.

We love the amount of period fireplaces that this house has, especially the one in our bedroom. We'd love to stay here, it's been perfect for us. It is such a safe family environment in a lovely community.

We'll miss that feeling you have when you come back from your holidays, open the front door and feel that real sense of being home."

In The Local Area - Offering easy access to Dyke Road and the A27, Matlock Road with its convenient local shops, restaurant and amenities has a lovely village-type feel.

Preston Park station with its convenient mainline links is only a short walk away making it ideal for commuters and trips into the heart of Brighton. Regular bus services allow easy access to Brighton and Hove and also the green open space of Devils Dyke.

When it comes to independent shops, bars and restaurants there's no shortage at nearby Seven Dials and a large Waitrose sits just behind the well-kept outdoor space of Hove Park.
