Why you’ll like it:
Quiet but convenient with plentiful permit parking and bus routes giving older children independence, Fiveways – and its 5 ways into or out of the city- is one of the most sought after conservation areas with the sea, Hollingbury, Preston and Blakers Parks all easy to reach. Inside has stylish, fuss-free interiors and this design approach begins in the front garden which is set up and back from the street and easy to care for.

Inside, a lobby with a stained glass door has oak underfoot for easy movement through the house and introduces the calm colour choice you’ll see throughout the home. Ideal for entertaining, the gracious proportions of the double depth living dining room deliver an inviting space ideal for quiet contemplation or sharing with friends and family. Sunlight streams through the broad bay, guests can dine in relaxed seclusion whilst enjoying the open view and an open fire in classic style ensures it is a restful retreat for all seasons.

Past under stair storage which has power for a dryer, the sunny kitchen breakfast room is lined with windows and tall glass doors slide across to the garden for an easy, al fresco lifestyle. There is ample space for a family table with a view over the spacious garden and a streamlined classic, the kitchen is well planned with matt storage, practical working surfaces and ambient lighting. Integrated appliances include a touch induction hob beneath a hood and a Hotpoint combi plus a fan oven, plumbing is in place for a dishwasher and a washing machine, and there is designated space for a tall fridge freezer.

Outside, the delightful garden is an oasis of calm facing west and open to the south for both daytime and evening sun. Child and pet secure behind walls, imaginative landscaping has created a charming refuge with a holiday feel in the pebbled side borders with a south facing seating area, and there’s a built in sand pit at the far end. There is a central lawn for play which is level with the borders, a feature hard to find in a city built on the Downs, and surrounded by other gardens, it is both private and quiet.

Upstairs, on the landing the first generous double bedroom looks over the garden. Simple but stylish with space from which to work from home, it is also an inviting guest room with space for a large sofa bed. Next door, the contemporary bathroom has a shower at one end of the bath and a warming rail for towels at the other and touches of luxury include a waterfall tap on the bath and designer tiling.

Along the unusually level landing is access to the large attic, which some neighbours have incorporated into the house stnc (see the homes opposite for example). The second quiet double room at the back has relaxing open views and alcoves for wardrobes. At the front of the house, the principal bedroom is restful, spanning the full width of this substantial property with soothing height, delicate decoration and both a magnificent, box bay window and a sash window to bathe the room with morning light.

Agent Says:
“Ideal for professionals and/or a growing family in a location super-convenient for schools, parks, the city and the station, this stylish house with sunny, child friendly garden is good to go, and will sell fast.”

Owner’s secret:
“We have held many celebrations both inside and out, and family life is made easy with parks, good schools and shops all within easy reach. Inside, we have tried to keep the rooms simple, stylish but also efficient, and we love the way the house opens to the garden in summer with plenty of space for children to play outside, but then becomes warm and cosy in winter. With plenty to do whether you’re a couple or a family, Fiveways is a great place to live with a real community, al fresco cafés and independent shops including a bakers, butchers and small Co-Op, and our neighbours are lovely.”
