An outstanding 5 bedroom, semi-detached family home in south Portslade.
Occupying a prime position in a pretty terrace of architecturally congruous properties, this striking, three storey Victorian house benefits from a good sized south facing rear garden and an impressive internal layout.
The neutral décor throughout is thoughtfully balanced by the solidity of natural and organic elements such as woods, exposed brick and slate, presenting an ideal backdrop for inspired family living. Its convenient location for good schools, easy access to local shops, parks, transport links and the city of Brighton and Hove, make it a sought-after investment.
Externally the property presents as an attractive Victorian semi, sitting behind a lush green hedge, enclosed within a low rise white wall. The front garden is paved with planters housing shrubs and easy to maintain foliage.
Internally the main hallway stretches the length of the ground floor with the reception room off to the right and the kitchen at its southerly aspect. Stripped wood flooring gives a real warmth to the entrance hall and the white décor reflects the light, providing a natural welcoming energy.
In More Detail - Externally the property presents as an attractive Victorian semi, sitting behind a lush green hedge, enclosed within a low rise white wall. The front garden is paved with planters housing shrubs and easy to maintain foliage.
Internally the main hallway stretches the length of the ground floor with the reception room off to the right and the kitchen at its southerly aspect. Stripped wood flooring gives a real warmth to the entrance hall and the white dcor reflects the light, providing a natural welcoming energy.
Ground Floor - The light-filled, double aspect reception room configures as either an extensive living area or a living/dining space. The warm wood flooring adds soul to the room with the white dcor contemporising it and reflecting the abundance of light flowing in. A stunning square bay window overlooks the front garden with a sizeable rear window overlooking the patio. A fireplace sits within each living zone; the reception area enjoys a wood burning stove placed within a brick lined fireplace with grey slate hearth and the rear dining/living area a brick lined fireplace with original hearth tiles. Storage cupboards and shelving add a functional aspect to this relaxing, illuminated space.
The contemporary theme flows through to the kitchen furnished with off-white wall and base units, white tiled splash backs, integrated hob, oven and dishwasher and space for an American fridge freezer. Grey slate floor tiles add a texture that compliments the white walls and the wood work surfaces continue the organic, raw material fabrication. The far end of the kitchen feeds through to a separate cloakroom and utility area with a glass enclosed area leading through to the rear garden. The kitchen is flooded with light from the bank of windows on its westerly wall, below which a natural space lends itself to a perfect dining/breakfast area.
First Floor - Neutrally carpeted stairs lead up from the ground floor to the upper floors of the home. A mezzanine level landing accommodates a bright double bedroom overlooking the rear garden. Its white dcor reflects the light and the room is made aesthetically inviting by a curved wall at its entrance.
Adjacent the family bathroom offers a cool white environment with touches of sea blue. A pretty vanity unit with mosaic tiling, shower over bath and fresh white tiles all add to the functionality whilst a large mirror provides unexpected depth.
Off the main first floor hallway a further double bedroom overlooks the rear garden and is a bright perfectly proportioned room.
The stunning master bedroom is at the end of the first floor hallway. This beautifully appointed room is awash with light from both its square bay and a floor to ceiling window and glass door combination that leads out onto a small balcony overlooking the front garden. The proportions of the room are generous and the layout perfect. A striking feature wall adds a touch of glamour to this soothing retreat, contrasting wonderfully with the rest of the white space whilst complimenting the darker wood flooring.
Second Floor - The top floor of this wonderful family home has two further good sized double bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a study. Both rooms are quiet and bright benefiting from double glazing and neutral light reflecting dcor. If five bedrooms were not all required these two delightful rooms would be perfect as studies, music rooms or chill out area for teenagers.
Outside - The pretty, south-facing, rear walled garden is a perfect haven for all the family. A newly laid patio offers the perfect stage for al fresco dining, entertaining and relaxing whilst beyond, a sizeable lawned area is ideal for family fun. A well-established tree towards the back of the garden gives it real personality, its branches currently being used to hang a swing - perfect for all family members young and old! There is plenty of room for trampolines paddling pools and anything else a young family may desire, a timber shed offering storage when not in use.
This amazing home is just perfect, harmonious and simplistic in its design, affording many exciting opportunities for creative styling. A wise investment!
What The Owner Says - "We will really miss this house, it has been the perfect family home. The bright, spacious kitchen has seen us all gathered around the table enjoying family meals and social time together. The garden has also been a wonderful entertaining space, having the patio for BBQs and the lawn a fun space for the children to enjoy. Yet, There is so much potential still to release for the next lucky owners.
St. Andrews road has fantastic community. It is a friendly and safe environment to bring up young children, made even better by its location - excellent public transport links, local shops within walking distance, Vale Park is on the road and noteworthy schools in the vicinity."
