soothing surroundings


This immaculate three bedroom house is full of charm and character, and it is far bigger inside than you think from its sweet exterior. It is peacefully tucked away within the Towergate development; set well back from the road surrounded by mature trees and lawns. The house has been lovingly maintained and the rooms are generously proportioned, with a soothing palette and quality materials used throughout. It also boasts a pretty, west facing garden, off street parking, and Preston Park commuter Station is a five minute walk away, as are several popular parks and schools making this a fantastic home for families, commuters and professionals alike.


In brief:


Style: 1991 terraced mews house


Bedrooms: 3 double; 1 en suite


Living rooms: 2 spacious


Area: 1074 sq ft


Outside: West facing garden to the rear


Location: Preston Park


Parking: Allocated parking space


Why you’ll like it:


Tower house is the substantial Victorian mansion house which stands at the centre of this leafy development, and while the surrounding buildings are younger by decades, they are have been sympathetically designed to blend in. These mews houses were built in 1991, but their facades share the architectural detailing of the archetypal Brighton Victorian terraces with gabled roofs, hung tiles and deep bay windows. This house is central in the terrace, and has a neat brick drive to the front, and steps lead you to the sage front door.


Once inside, the scale of the house becomes apparent. It has great depth, and you have a line of sight right through to the garden at the rear. Firstly however, you enter into the bright kitchen and dining room, which faces east so you get a lovely light pouring in through the wide square bay in the morning. This is a generous room which can easily seat eight for formal dining, and it is open to the kitchen which is recessed. This has modern units in light wood, and has freestanding appliances to include a washing machine, dishwasher, and a tall fridge freezer. The electric oven and hob are integrated however, and the tiled splashbacks add a welcome splash of colour in violet blue. 


A short corridor leads to a half staircase taking you  into the living room, where the white walls and wooden floors continue from the lower floor. There is ample space in here for comfortable pieces of furniture, and a dining space if need be, and double doors can be flung open in the summer where the decked patio area becomes an extension of the room. The pretty garden is manicured with raised sleeper beds as well as mature shrubs on the lawn borders, and the lawn is a fine size for children to play or for social gatherings.


Returning to the house, an open staircase takes you up to the master bedroom suite, which is found on the next half landing. This room has a square bay to mirror the one in the dining room below, and is of gracious proportions where even with a king size bed, and several pieces of bedroom furniture, the floor space is not compromised. There’s also a double wardrobe built in, and the en-suite has a contemporary finish with dove grey tiles on the walls, and a walk in shower with a rainfall showerhead and a fixed glass door.  The bedrooms all share the same soothing decor for continuity, with bedrooms two and three on the upper level along with the family bathroom. The rooms are fairly equal size, and although they are set up for children, one would certainly fit a small double bed, and the other could be transformed into a tranquil home office. 


This is a wonderfully versatile house which is both beautifully presented and in a favourable location, so it would suit many, and is sure to be snapped up.


Bear in mind:


You can occasionally hear the rumble of trains, but the residents here find it a comforting sound rather than a nuisance, and the benefits of being close to the station override the noise issue.
