WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE HISTORIC LANES AND WITH EASY ACCESS TO BRIGHTON MAINLINE STATION.
Set in a quiet one way street, this impressive, family-sized period home of over 3,000 sq., feet, has been totally refurbished and sympathetically decorated throughout, giving the home a new fresh spirit. The current owner has confidently fused period features with smart updates, its high ceilings and pretty bay windows melding easily with stylish bathrooms and a striking, expansive kitchen/diner. Inspired colour schemes, plantation shutters, round and canted sash bay windows with classic cast iron rails, all add to this beautiful example of contemporary living in a period property.
In More Detail
Externally this impressive five-storey property exudes period splendour and elegance with its bay window sills and ornate Victorian cast iron rails. Well appointed at the south end of the road in close proximity to the seafront, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a home that strikes the perfect balance between a high-quality stylish house and a perfectly located family home. Throughout this attractive bay-fronted property, period features and a workable layout combine with a sense of space, natural light and sea views, there is hardly anything to do here but move in. The rooms are harmonious in a colourful way giving a real consistency to the property while at the same time providing each room with its own personality.
STEP INSIDE: Entered at raised ground floor level, a generously proportioned hallway leads the way through an easy flowing layout.
GROUND FLOOR: This floor is given over mainly to an expansive through kitchen/diner, orientated east/west with some beautiful period features including cornicing, sash windows and a stunning marble surround fireplace around which the bespoke matt white and grey stone kitchen is built. The space is lit from the front by stunning bay windows adding extra illumination and architectural interest, then from the back by sizeable double glazed period style panes. Dark wood flooring throughout enriches and adds warmth while the cool white kitchen units combine with stone work tops to provide a juxtaposed coolness.
The well-appointed kitchen with its clean lines and minimal aesthetic keeps this space very light, clean and airy. A central island with integrated hob anchors the space, while separate double ovens and essential integrated appliances provide everything the keen chef would need to cook up a storm. To brighten mornings at the breakfast table there is a perfect spot in front of the bay window where enjoying a morning cup of coffee while watching the world go by is prescriptive. This beautiful, stylishly crafted kitchen really is the well-loved hub of this home and is perfectly balanced, offering enough space to cook, entertain and relax.
A square archway through to the dining area delineates the space and creates an extension of the family hub, the perfect place to chill and enjoy a leisurely evening meal. A second period feature fireplace gives this end of the room a warm welcoming feel.
At the rear of this floor is a practical guest WC that leads into the utility room, with plumbing and space for a washing machine and dryer and the hot water tank.
FIRST FLOOR: The first floor is home to the luxuriously relaxing drawing room with its exceptionally high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. French doors open on to the west-facing balcony which offers perfect sea views and a striking grey marble feature fireplace commands a real focal point in the room. This room is a joy to relax in with its sumptuous furnishings and luxe carpeting.
Behind this main reception room is a cosy family TV room also boasting period detailing in its high ceilings and beautiful cornicing. Each of these upper living rooms is an independent entity in terms of colour, the front room being accented with a calming blue to reflect the ocean hues visible from its bay and evoke a restfulness and harmony, the second reception room with a more neutral fuss free dove.
At the rear of this level the current owners have given the space over to a fabulous home gym however this could easily be repurposed as a home office for those wanting to cut down a commute or to accommodate the current climate where working from home is often a necessity.
SECOND FLOOR: The second floor hosts the principal bedroom suite complete with luxury en-suite and a wall of built-in wardrobes. This room sits at the front of the building enjoying the stunning sea views from its bay. This spot also offers the perfect nook to unwind and read a book in a statement seat. Neutral in its décor and expansive in size it’s the perfect haven for relaxation.
The second bedroom is adjacent, overlooking the gardens, so particularly peaceful. This room also boasts a crisp white en-suite shower room with a ramped up luxe factor. A walk in shower enclosure provides a dedicated shower space and contemporary metro tiling is elevated by chrome fittings.
An impressive freestanding bathtub, perfectly positioned in front of the window, dominates the family bathroom at the rear of this level. A large walk in shower enclosure adds dual practicality and striking grey tiling combines with the polished chrome fittings to make a super smart statement whilst emphasising the luxury styling. This gorgeous bathroom is a study in contemporary glamour.
THIRD FLOOR: A further two large double bedrooms sit at the top storey of the home, the rear benefiting from an en-suite shower room, the front enjoying a pretty bay window with sea views.
LOWER GROUND FLOOR: Accessed via stairs down to its own front door, the lower ground floor comprises a self contained, spacious and well presented, one bedroom apartment, with a pretty courtyard. This is ideal for a teenager who wants their own space, parents who need to be nearby or a rental opportunity for investment.
With its finely tuned and much considered update, this is a contemporary home that exudes character and style. When buying a family home it’s the added extras that make it really special and this property boasts plenty in its family rooms, home gym and perfect location.
