Spacious Early Edwardian 5 Bedroom Semi-Detached House.

An elegant two storey house with a wealth of wonderful period features and large, landscaped rear garden.

Dating back to 1904, stained glass leaded windows, exposed beams and working period fireplaces all combine to create a beautiful example of a picture-perfect period property. EPC rating E

In More Detail - Tastefully and sympathetically presented throughout, spacious rooms and high ceilings feature throughout this extensive family home with its easy flowing layout.

Ground Floor - Stained glass leaded windows light the large entrance hallway and instantly remind you of the charm and history that this elegant family home has to offer.

In the main reception room a wide, bay window overlooks the pretty front garden with its colourful fuchsias and aquilegia and allows ample natural light to tumble in. A tall ceiling, exposed beams and a dado rail add to the sense of space and elegance, whilst the grand period fireplace creates an instant focal point. A discreetly hidden trapdoor allows access to the underfloor space.

Offering a wealth of storage in the smoky grey dresser, the breakfast room is perfectly proportioned for family meals. Dark blue tones add a splash of rich colour, while a double glazed door opens directly onto a generously proportioned decked terrace.

Colourful tiles provide a tasteful backdrop to a wealth of tongue and groove cabinets in the kitchen. Benefiting from plenty of room for freestanding appliances, a white, square sink adds a stylish finishing touch.

Beautifully lit from a wide, bay window, the welcoming living room is the real heart of this home. Natural light bounces off the walls and together with two stained glass windows instantly creates an inviting and relaxing space. A truly versatile family room with period ceiling architraves. A Recessed fireplace sits beneath an eye-catching archway.

A bathroom/utility room comes complete with ample space for large household appliances and a walk-in shower. A deep under-stairs cupboard completes the ground floor.

First Floor - The wide bay windows of the main reception and living rooms are matched by those of the master bedroom. The rich tones of the original floorboards balance with deep grey walls which sit beneath period architraves and dado rails, while fitted wardrobes offer plenty of storage. Flooded by natural light the spacious room has a calm and relaxed feel while deep window seats offer plenty of discreet storage and a perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by.

Two further double bedrooms are equally well-presented. A fourth bay window in one of the bedrooms allows yet more natural light to flow into this family home, while the second bedroom is currently used as a multi-media room.

Currently configured as a home office, a fourth bedroom offers plenty of dual space potential. Tall ceilings highlight the amount of space on offer, while a glazed door opens directly onto a north facing balcony, perfect for sunny afternoons.

A single bedroom is ideally proportioned for a nursery or playroom.

Sleek black and grey mosaic tiles provide a stylish backdrop to a Heritage suite in the family bathroom. Period style taps and a white towel radiator add to the character, while two opaque windows continue the flow of natural light.

A tall double cupboard in the ample hallway offers access to the boarded loft space. Offering plenty of height and space across the full length and width of the house, there is plenty of potential to create a third floor (subject to obtaining to correct consents).

Outside - To the front of the property, easy to maintain mature flowerbeds offer an established array of fuchsias, aquilegia and tall green shrubs creating plenty of privacy and an inviting first impression.

An impressively sized rear garden offers something for everyone. South-facing, a decked terrace provides space for enjoying family meals on warm summer evenings and leads down to a paved patio which can easily accommodate a hot tub.

Echoing the timeless style of the front garden, camellias, roses and firs are just some of the colourful, mature plants which encompass this incredibly peaceful and private space. A variety of fruit trees add to the homely feel and a large timber outhouse comes complete with window shutters.

What The Owners Say - "We moved here in 2002 with three teenagers, so the size of this house was perfect for us. They've grown up and flown the nest now but if it wasn't for us wanting to be near our grandchildren we'd be staying. It's a house that we love.

It's flexible enough to accommodate everyone and spacious enough for everyone to spread out. It's great to be able to work from home, the house really works well for that side of our lives and if we need to commute to London the station is only a short walk from here.

We'll really miss the outside space, the patio is not overlooked and it's great to sit out there on a clear night and look at the stars.

This is the house we've lived in the longest and we'll be sad to leave."

In The Local Area - Situated in the popular Goldsmid area, to the south of the Old Shoreham Road, this house is conveniently located for easy access to both Brighton and Hove Stations.

Seven Dials offers a large variety of stylish independent shops, coffee bars and restaurants, while the high street stores of Church Road and Western Road are within easy reach.

With plenty of nearby green open spaces to choose from, including St. Ann's Well Gardens and Hove Green, the seafront is within walking distance. Nearby schools include Cardinal Newman, Windlesham Day School, BHASVIC and also Lancing Prep.
