Why you'll like it...
A four double bedroom modernist-style house giving outstanding southfacing views over Hove and towards the sea. The tiled porch leads to the entrance hall where the video intercom system is situated which operates the front pedestrian gate and shows views of the street in front. The solid wood electric gate hides any vehicles on the drive and is operated remotely, creating a safe haven for all the family.
Everything in this house has been especially made to the exacting standards of the current owners creating a unique and contemporary home. The main reception room is a huge 26ft x 18ft with full length windows leading onto a glass fronted balcony decked with oiled hardwood. All the interior doors are stained oak to match the polished black oak flooring. A feature fireplace and trench heating ensure the continuity of line isn't broken.
Against the monochrome of the ground floor a brightly coloured stair carpet and contemporary cascading light form a fun and welcome contrast. The two double bedrooms on the south side give spectacular sunsets and sea views; it's even possible to see the Isle of Wight on a clear day. The other two double bedrooms feel light and spacious and have peaceful views over the garden. The black tiled family bathroom provides the backdrop for a magnificent 7ft white quartz & acrylic bath.
The bold monochrome scheme, punctuated with bright accents continues through the house into the dining room at the rear. From here patio doors lead out onto the triple-levelled landscaped style garden. The lawned and decked areas are perfect for playhouses and garden furniture. The central landscaped area has been planted with low maintenance plants for easy care. The glass enclosed upper level of the garden has views out towards the sea with a fantastic swimming pool heated by an environmentally friendly air source heat pump. There is also an outdoor fireplace for when the evening draws in. This is a beautiful and well-crafted family home.
Bear in mind....
The house has an air source heat pump to heat the swimming pool, making it very economical to run. Also the house is insulated to a very high standard making it cosy in winter with low running costs.
Planning has been previously approved for the conversion of the Garage to form an additional 40 square metres of internal space.
"We will miss the far reaching views to the Isle of Wight from both first floor balconies and the garden. The accommodation is secure and well-proportioned for a growing family and also very easy to maintain."
