Why you’ll like it
Waldegrave Road is lined with silver birch trees, and is central to the area known locally as ‘The Golden Triangle’, due to the abundance of attractive Victorian properties, the catchments of several excellent schools, and its proximity to the city, the stations, and two of Brighton’s best parks. This double fronted house is set back from the street, and you approach this property down the original tiled path to your own, grand front door. Your door opens into a small vestibule - perfect for hanging coats and organising shoes, and then you are into the impressive central entrance hall from which the other rooms reside. Wooden floors in warm honey tones flow throughout many of the rooms for continuity, and the doors have been stripped to complement them. Looking up, the original finials and decorative cornicing remain, and you get a real sense of the grandeur and scale that this period affords.
To the front on the left is the gloriously bright living room, with beige colour walls and the wood and plasterwork picked out in white. Either side of the chimney breast, useful shelving has been built in for books and for ornaments, and the graciously wide bay window adorned with plantation shutters frames leafy views to the east. Opposite this room is the master bedroom, which mirrors the living room in size and orientation. This too has a wide bay window with shutters, yet it feels even more private due to the evergreen to the front. It has ample space for a king size bed, as well as for large pieces of bedroom furniture tucked into the alcoves, without compromising on floor space.
Returning to the hall, a door to the left opens to the striking kitchen and dining room. The units are plenty in white gloss providing an abundance of storage, and the fridge freezer, separate fridge, washer dryer, dishwasher, wine fridge and oven are all integrated within them. The induction hob is seamlessly cut into the glistening quartz worktop in the central island, and above this is an industrial style, cylindrical ceiling mounted extractor fan. Large, slate grey floor tiles run the length of the room to the dining and family area which can be opened fully to the garden through the bi-folding doors. These open to an attractive and generous garden which has easy maintenance astroturf, and a bed, planted with tropical palms and bamboo. Looking to the left, the garden is open to the south where you have distant views of the sea; pierced by Brighton’s newest landmark - the i360. This is a real suntrap during the warmer months and an extension of the living space, and it is not overlooked at all. The whole space works perfectly for both family life and for entertaining throughout the year.
You can access the parking space from the garden through a secure gate, and another set of solid timber gates separates the space from the road. This area has been well tended by the neighbours above who also share the ample space to park, so it is a welcoming place to return home to.
Bedroom two is across the hall, and while it is a slightly smaller double, it is well presented with peaceful garden views, and it has an incredible amount of storage including a bounteous under stairs cupboard. There is even more storage in the hallway for your household items - a real godsend in apartment living.
The family bathroom is at the end of the hall, and is fresh in white with a shower over the bath which is shaped at one end for extra elbow room! This flat has charm and space in abundance, and being in such a favourable location is it sure to attract the attentions of many.
Bear in Mind:
The kitchen/dining room has underfloor heating, but the rest of the flat is heated by a new combination gas boiler, and new radiators in the traditional ‘school’ style, in keeping with the character of the building.
‘We have loved living here with our young family as there’s so much space, and the neighbours are all very friendly. There is a real sense of community here, and you can walk to the shops and cafes at Fiveways with ease - we will miss it.’
