Outside there are sizable lawned gardens to the front and back, and running the full width of the house there is a glorious glass fronted south facing 460 square feet balcony. A spacious private driveway is located to the front of the property and leads up to a garage.

Surrounded by the South Downs in a highly desirable front row position, Olympia House boasts an appealing approach. A dreamy shade of light blue is tastefully framed by terracotta roof tiles with large windows in pristine white drawing attention to the eye. Set back from the road this expansive detached home is wonderfully peaceful; a centrally placed perron leads up to a glass panelled door, ornamented by a variety of mature potted flowers. The spacious driveway provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to a garage.

The space has been neutrally decorated in pale tones to carry the light through and provides access to all ground floor rooms. An under-stair cupboard space creates a handy hideaway spot for everyday household necessities. Leading directly off the entrance hallway, a series of reception rooms flow through the entire depth of the property, with glass panelled doors separating each individual space. A large central lounge centres on a homely fireplace with an impressive curved bay window making for a beautifully bright space to relax. An adjoining study offers an ideal addition for those continuing to work from home. To the front is a further family room/sun lounge with floor to ceiling windows to capture the very most of the incredible view. At the rear is a spacious kitchen, a range of wall and base mounted cabinets wrap around the room topped with contrasting black work surfaces providing ample space for food preparation and storage.

An additional home office and study room is situated to the front; the space is beautifully lit by a square fronted bay window and highly versatile and could be used as snug, formal dining room, play room.

Vendors comment:
As someone who was born and bred in Brighton, as a young girl I often dreamed of one day living in Roedean Way, as it seemed such an enchanted place to live. All those big beautiful houses perched majestically on top of a ridge with sweeping views down to the sea. Years later, that dream having been fulfilled, I still think of Roedean as an enchanted place to live. There aren't many places in the country that can offer you so much; where you are only walking distance away from the Sea, the South Downs and the bustling City. It has been a rare privilege to be the owner of Olympia House, raising our four children and several dogs here, it has proved to be a perfect home for entertaining and for family life, offering up its considerable space to us in so many countless and diverse ways, a house of endless versatility, it has served us all very well. The Sea, Sun and Sky have of course also played a starring role in our lives here, providing a magnificent backdrop to our daily comings and goings. Presenting us throughout the day with a dynamic panoramic view; no two days ever being the same. That is what has been so unique and special about living here, the magnificent uninterrupted sea views, and also the rolling countryside just behind us, indeed it is what made us fall in love with this house; its unrivalled location. Now it is time for someone else to hopefully fall in love with it too, as with all the children grown up and gone, I feel that it's probably time for me to move on and give someone else the opportunity to live in and become enchanted by this really very special place.
