Spacious 3 Bedroom Detached House with Beautiful Rear Garden and Garage.

Dating back to the 1950s, 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 both Portslade and Hove.

Behind the classic red brick facade an easy flowing layout offers the opportunity for improvement and the chance to transform this house into a contemporary well-appointed family home. Its generously sized plot of land offers ideal development potential for full loft and ground floor extensions (subject to the correct consents). No Onward Chain. EPC rating D

In More Detail - Set back from the wide road, a tiered garden creates a welcoming first impression to a spacious home which has been in the same family since 1959. 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 Gazanias and Hebe of the front garden from a wide window, a well-proportioned main reception room engenders a calm and peaceful feel. Beautifully light and offering ample space for family seating and entertaining, a feature fireplace offers a traditional focal point.

Delineated by sliding doors, the adjacent dining room echoes the presentation of the main reception room with its tall ceiling and soft neutral tones. French doors open onto the expansive garden perfectly extending this versatile space, whilst also ensuring that a maximum amount of natural daylight continues to flow into this family home.

A well-proportioned kitchen offers further views of the rear garden and the generous floor space easily lends itself to become well-appointed with modern cabinets and integrated appliances. A deep walk-in pantry offers a wealth of storage while a door leads onto a utility area where there is access to the integral garage.

Hidden beneath the carpets of the entrance hallway the rich tones of the original parquet floor remind you of the charm and character of this home.

First Floor - Three 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 tile setting.

A beautifully light and bright gallery hallway offers access to the loft which has ample potential to be transformed into additional bedrooms or living space (subject to the correct consents).

Outside - This family sized home is set back from the quiet road behind an easy to maintain lawn bordered by tiered flowerbeds of mature Hebe and eye-catching Gazanias. A wide driveway and integral garage offer plenty of private off-road parking.

Offering a slice of country living and a classic English garden feel, to the rear of the property the wonderful array of tall mature flowers and shrubs which encompass an expansive and well-kept lawn creates an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. Stepping out from the dining room, a wide red tiled and stone patio stretches across the full width of this family home effortlessly extending the wonderfully versatile and sociable ground floor space still further.

With ample room to incorporate a vegetable patch without encroaching on the lawn, the idyllic tranquil space can easily also accommodate an outdoor swimming pool.

In The Local Area - Situated within walking distance from Portslade train station with its convenient mainline links to Gatwick Airport and London Victoria, Benfield Way offers a wealth of access to public transport for commuters.
