Full description

A substantial (3,460 Sq ft / 320.5 sq m excluding garage) period house of opulence and grandeur situated on a corner plot in this prime residential location in BN3. This house has a plethora of period features, driveway and garage, as well as a west facing garden.

Situation - Situated in a beautiful tree lined street, Pembroke Avenue is within a conservation area which preserves the period elegance and charm of this exceptional location with its wide range of houses built in the Victorian era. This area reflects the status of wealthier Victorians and the properties here are varied in design but all are opulent, grand homes with their ornate architecture, elegant proportions and intricate detailing; they were built to be admired with this property believed to have been one of the first constructed in the street occupying a corner plot on the junction of Pembroke Crescent.

The house is just 0.7 miles away from Hove station with two fast links to London each hour; the city centre of Brighton is fifteen minutes away by bus with approximately one bus leaving the area every three minutes. Hove Museum and Art Gallery is around the corner in New Church Road and less than half a mile to the South is Hove promenade and sea front. Church Road, Hoves main thoroughfare and Hove shopping district located in and around George Street and Church Road Blatchington Road is also less than a mile in distance.

Description - 'Wanstead' has been in the same ownership for a considerable amount of time, and has been very well maintained; it is understood to have been one of the first houses built in the street. The Pembroke district as a whole was built on land previously owned by the Vallance family around 1896 to 1900 with the name Pembroke being chosen to honour their descent from the Earls of Pembroke.

Externally the property is double fronted with beautiful bay, tile hung elevations under a tiled roof with a certain feature of note being the turret situated to the north east elevation. There is periphery gardens surrounding the property and from level ground the original tiled pathway leads to the original portico and front door.

Internally, the house is arranged over three floors boasting original fireplaces, archways, ceilings, doors, skirtings and windows throughout, including beautiful tiled floors that extend through the ground floor right to the outside steps of the sun room.

The entrance vestibule opens in to an incredible reception hallway with fireplace; there is a cloak room and great storage underneath the turning stair case, which rises to the first floor. An easterly aspect sitting room with stained glass windows and fireplace overlooks the front garden. Adjacent to this room, across the hallway is the study which also has a pleasant aspect and fireplace. Then, to the west end of the house, is the drawing room which again has a beautiful fireplace and this room gives access to the sun room. To the south east end of the house is the kitchen come dining room and utility room (boilers housed); offering ample space to dine the kitchen comprises a hand built range of base and eye level cupboards and drawers, a double sink unit with drainer, NEFF gas hob, and tower stacked matching double oven and grill. From the kitchen is the breakfast room, which can also be accessed via the side of the property.

On to the first floor and situated at half landing level is the most stunning stained glass window that is almost ecclesiastic in style, and proportion. The landing is vast, with airing cupboards and further stairs which rise to the second floor and all of the bedrooms can be access from here. Worthy of mention is that all of the bedrooms, on both floors have wash basins (plumbing). The master bedroom, known as best bedroom on the servants bell, has a double aspect and a bay window overlooking the crescent. Bedroom two has a west aspect and a large sash window; bedroom three is adjacent to this room, and in-between this room and bedroom four is a separate WC, a tiled shower room with bidet, wash hand basin and WC and a bathroom with WC and wash hand basin.

The second floor (addition made circa 1976) has two well-appointed bedrooms with Velux widows and a dormer window.

Outside - Periphery gardens surround the house that open in to the west facing garden. Heavily stocked boarders and established shrubs and trees offer seclusion, and the garden is enclosed by walls and fences. Furthermore, the property has a detached garage with up and over door and a further door leading to the garden. The garage is accessed via a gated, private driveway a valuable commodity in the location.
