Elegant 4 Bedroom Detached mock-Tudor House with Beautiful South-Facing Garden and Garage.

Dating back to the 1920's when Tudor Revival architecture evolved from the Arts and Crafts era, the peacefulness and privacy of this detached home combines the tranquillity of a classic English garden with easy access to the bustling café culture of Hove.

Behind a mock-Tudor facade of distinctive Pigeon blue timbers an easy flowing layout offers the opportunity for improvement and the chance to transform this house into a contemporary well-appointed family home. No Onward Chain. EPC: E.

In More Detail - Set back from the wide road, an elegant rose garden creates a welcoming first impression to a double fronted home that was known for many years as 'Holmdene'. Tastefully presented, natural light flows throughout this two storey home highlighting the generous amount of space on offer.

Ground Floor - Looking out onto the mature roses of the front garden from a square bay window, a well-proportioned main reception room engenders a clam and peaceful feel. Beautifully light and offering ample space for family seating and entertaining, a feature brick fireplace offers a traditional focal point.

The adjacent dining room echoes the presentation of the main reception room with its tall ceiling, dado rail and soft neutral tones. South-facing French doors open directly onto a large paved patio perfectly extending this versatile space whilst also ensuring that a maximum amount of natural daylight continues to flow into this Hove home.

An open plan kitchen/breakfast room offers further access to the patio and beautiful views of the extensive rear garden. The generous floor space easily accommodates a breakfast table and a high recessed fireplace creates the perfect spot for a wine store. A breakfast bar delineates the space offering further seating and dark wood cabinets house a variety of integrated appliances. A deep walk-in pantry offers a wealth of storage while a door leads onto the integral garage.

First Floor - The soft colourful hues of a stained glass window light a wide staircase with carved spindles which curves up to a gallery hallway where a second set of French doors open onto a wide north-facing balcony.

Four well-proportioned bedrooms offer ideal family accommodation and ample dual space potential, each enjoying views of the lovingly tended front or rear gardens.

The family bathroom features a traditional suite arranged in a white tongue and groove setting, while pastel blue walls add a refined splash of colour.

Outside - This family sized home is set back from the quiet road behind well kept lawns punctuated with established roses and bordered with eye-catching dahlias and Hebe. A brick driveway and integral garage offer plenty of private off-road parking.

The original first floor balcony offers an ideal space to sit and enjoy the weekends papers with an early morning cup of coffee.

To the rear of the property, the stunning array of tall mature flowers and shrubs in raised brick beds which encompass an expansive and well-kept lawn creates an instant wow factor thats hard to ignore. Stepping out from the kitchen and dining room, a wide paved patio stretches across the full width of this family home effortlessly extending the wonderfully versatile and sociable ground floor space still further.

Offering a slice of country living and a classic English garden feel, the graceful south-facing outdoor space is bordered with the rich statuesque blooms of dahlias, Echinacea, verbena, Hebe and cosmos to name but a few, while fruit bearing apple and pear trees create central focal points and dappled shade.

With ample room to incorporate a vegetable patch without encroaching on the lawn, the idyllic tranquil space comes complete with a timber shed discreetly hidden by the greenery of a tall weigela plant and separate brick storage cupboards.

Seller Insight - "This is such a nice family home. It's a really sunny house so it always seems so cheerful and it's always been a happy home.

The garden is perfect for children and over the years we've spent many afternoons there playing cricket and other sports.

As a family our favourite place to spend time is sitting on the patio beneath a large parasol or lying on the grass in the shade. It's so peaceful and quiet and the apples you get from the trees are great for cooking."

In The Local Area - Sitting near to the green open spaces of Hove Park and Hove Recreation Ground, there is an abundance of outdoor facilities close at hand ranging from tennis courts, children's playground and bowling green to a caf, picnic area and working model railway.

A Waitrose superstore is within walking distance and the shops and amenities of Seven Dials, Church Road and Goldstone Villas are all easily accessible.

Nearby Hove and Preston Park train stations offer convenient mainline links for commuters and local schools include Lancing College Preparatory, Cottesmore St Mary's Catholic Primary School and Hove Park School and Sixth Form Centre, along with the recently opened Bilingual Primary School.
