Why you’ll like i
Victorian terraces are part of Brighton’s make up, with their bay windows, and ornate architectural features, and this one has been beautifully maintained over the years, with its fresh white exterior, and original tiled path leading you to the turquoise front door. Once inside you are welcomed into a long entrance hall where stipped floors and the original finials and cornicing remain.
It is immediately apparent that the current owners have a keen eye for colour and style, as many of the original features have been retained, such as the panelling on the walls below the dado rail, but these have been blended with contemporary design and materials to create a stunning family home.The living room and dining room are first on the right, and these have been knocked through to make one generous, double aspect room, with French windows to the rear, and a wide bay window to the front.
All the windows have been newly replaced with energy efficient double glazing, and these are on trend with white plantation shutters. There is an open fire with a decorative wooden mantle, and a cast iron fireplace flanked by picture tiles, so popular in the Victorian period. Clever wooden shelving has been built into the alcoves, and there is ample space for comfortable sofas to the front, and a dining table and chairs to seat eight at the rear.The kitchen is at the end of the hall, and this is also a sizeable room with space for a kitchen table. There are modern fixed units on either side, in an birch wood effect, and these are topped in pale marble.
There are also free standing units which complement the space well, and all appliances are free standing, including a tall fridge freezer, and a dishwasher below the counter. There is a chrome range cooker with a 5 ring gas hob, and behind this the splash back is made up of metro tiles in racing green - very current in the world of interiors. Bi-folding doors lead you out to the south facing garden, and here there are raised beds made from reclaimed railway sleepers, and also a shed which could also work as a bike store.Returning to the hall, you climb the light grey cord carpeted stairs to the landing, where the spacious bathroom is ahead.
There is a deep bath below the frosted window which has the tap in the corner, so you can bathe comfortably at either end, and there is still space for a large walk in shower with a curved glass door. A traditional style cupboard has been built in to store your fluffy towels and toiletries, and next door, which would have once been the WC, has been transformed to a utility room with a washing machine and dryer, plus space to hang your delicates.There are two double bedrooms on this floor.
The slightly smaller one has a big window overlooking the tranquil walled gardens, and this is painted a vibrant petrol blue. The master bedroom looks out over the neighbouring terraces, and this also has traditional wardrobes built into the alcoves. The third double bedroom is up a further flight of stairs, where the loft has been converted with a dormer to give plenty of extra head room. Up here there is also an en suite shower room, and French doors with a Juliette balcony can be opened in the summer months to let some of the ‘outside in’.
Bear in Mind:
The house to the rear of this one is only used occasionally as a holiday home, so it is very rare that you are ever directly overlooked by anyone.
There is such a great sense of community here, mainly because of the schools. The community even owns the hall in Exeter Street, and there are always events happening to bring us all together. We won’t be moving far.’
