Exceptional design, fine quality materials and modern technological features have come together to create this immaculate five-bedroom, detached family home. Uniquely spacious and perfectly positioned with easy access to the city, the countryside and the coast, this house will appeal to many. Having undergone complete, back to brick renovations in 2017 to include double height extensions both up and out, this generous home is ready for the modern lifestyle and is set to stand the test of time for many years to come. From the moment you enter, the fine quality finish is evident, and even below the exceptional aesthetic hides CAT6 cabling, Sonos sound systems, Rako intelligent lighting systems, underfloor heating and air conditioning. High ceilings, open plan living spaces and a vast amount of glazing ensure each room is filled with natural light, while new timber-framed double-glazed windows look out to the architecturally designed garden to the rear and across the roofline of the homes opposite to the rolling Downland hills at the front. This house exudes finesse and taste and would be the perfect abode for those who like to entertain, but also require excellent schools and transport links. For dog owners, cyclists and enthusiasts of the ‘great outdoors’, the South Downs National Park is literally on your doorstep, but you can also access the A23/A27 in minutes with links to take you to London or along the coast in both directions. For entertainment, the quintessential ‘Hove’ Lifestyle is just a short taxi ride away, but this is the sort of house you’ll want to spend a great deal of time in.

Why you’ll like it:
Sitting equidistant from both the South Downs and Seven Dials, this beautiful home enjoys the best of both worlds and has plenty of kerb appeal. It feels every inch the country abode with a bespoke solid oak porch canopy with toughened glass sides, Sussex hung tiles and delicate sage-grey window frames to echo the greenery surrounding. It is set back from the road behind border walls with brick lighting and spike lights elsewhere – all of which have dawn dusk settings, controlled remotely using a Rako intelligent lighting system. Beyond these, the shingle drive has ample space for three large cars plus another in the garage which has an oak timber, remote controlled door. The immaculate exterior is a fine indicator for the quality of finish you can expect inside, where generous, light-filled rooms impress at every turn.
Once inside, you are greeted by a generous entrance hall with oak parquet wood flooring, contemporary Rako lighting features and a clear line of sight taking you through the depth of the house to the garden beyond. There is a ground floor WC with Duravit sanitary ware, Hansgrohe pushbutton tap and a Duravit vanity mirror, while below the stairs, bespoke storage drawers have been created for shoes and household items. Standing here, the true scale and design of the house become apparent; inviting you to explore further.
Stepping into the elegant sitting room to the left, one thing is patently clear: no expense has been spared to create a home which is both aesthetically pleasing and fully functional for modern living. With soft wool carpet underfoot and natural light streaming in on three sides, it manages to be both light and airy and homely with ample space for large, sumptuous furnishings for the whole family to cosy up on. During winter, a gas lit stove adds heat and atmosphere to the seating area, while contemporary column radiators in white are in place for additional heat. Sonos ceiling speakers and Rako lighting are in place as standard throughout the property.
Kitchen dining room and snug:
Spanning the back of the house, the kitchen, dining room and snug are part of the rear extension with two sets of bi-folding doors opening to the garden which becomes an extension of the home during the warmer seasons. Inside, underfloor-heating warms the room below stone floor tiles, and while the space is entirely open plan, it has clearly defined areas for relaxation, cooking, dining and entertaining. To one side there is space for a dining table to seat ten, while a large Sile Stone topped central island and solid oak breakfast bar form an informal dining space. The bespoke Tom Howley kitchen cabinetry offers a vast array of storage solutions to include a pantry unit, and the electric cooker top, full-size under counter wine fridge, twin ovens, dishwasher and full-size fridge have been integrated. Natural light streams in from the south but also via an atrium skylight, and pendant lights illuminate the space when the sun goes down. Adjoining this room, the utility has a fully integrated washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer, plus with side access it acts like a boot room so you can bring muddy paws, buggies and wellies in without traipsing them through the immaculate house.
Expertly designed within the last few years, the garden is a treat for the senses with a wide variety of flowering and scented plants offering colour throughout the year from curved flower beds on either side of the perfect lawn. Atmospheric lighting ensures this garden is a joy both day and night – and is, as expected, remote control operated using the Rako intelligent lighting system. A generous patio sits close to the house for relaxing in the sunshine or dining alfresco, and with a southerly aspect, it receives the sun right through the day, making it ideal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mature trees line the borders offering some welcome, dappled shade during the high seasons, while also providing complete privacy from the neighbouring homes.
Principal bedroom suite on first floor:
Returning inside and up to the first floor there are four beautiful double bedrooms; two of which are en suite, plus the family bathroom. Of these, the largest sits above the garage with dual aspect windows to include French door access to the decked, south-facing sun terrace looking out over the beautiful garden. This elegant room has a restful palette and again has soft wool carpet underfoot for added warmth and luxury. Even with a king size bed and several pieces of freestanding bedroom furniture, the floor space is not compromised, and the en suite bathroom is luxuriously spacious. Moroccan style floor tiles by Fired Earth are heated from below and the freestanding bath by Duravit sits below the window so you can star gaze as you relax. Villeroy & Boch brassware add a further touch of luxury and a wet-room style shower with metro brick tiling is in place for when time is of the essence.
First floor bedrooms and family bathroom:
There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor – all of which are sizable doubles, and two enjoy exquisite views to the front, looking out over the local landscape to the undulating green hills of the South Downs National Park, below big, open skies. These views are ever changing with the seasons so are a joy to wake up to at any time of year. Each bedroom has wool carpet and ample space for larger pieces of bedroom furniture, plus bedroom three has a chic, en suite with a rainfall shower, porcelain tiles, a sunken mirror with lighting, Duravit sanitaryware, a Merlin shower screen, brassware by Hansgrohe, and a stylish sink unit by Villeroy & Boch.
Likewise, bedrooms four and five have easy access to the family bathroom which has Marble tiles by Fired Earth and the same exceptional quality sanitaryware, fittings and Farrow & Ball bathroom paint.
Second floor principal bedroom and bathroom:
Spanning the entire top floor, the second principal bedroom suite is incredibly spacious and feels like a real haven; where you can tuck yourself away from the hubbub of daily life to truly relax. From here, the views only improve and are now visible on all sides due to large Velux windows on each of the vaulted walls. This suite could easily house a seating area alongside a super-king size bed and the floor space is maximised by plenty of built-in storage. The bathroom on this floor is another exceptional space with a walk-in shower for two spanning the rear wall with tiled seats and dual shower attachments below one over-sized rainfall showerhead. Porcelain tiles line the floor and walls while the Duravit basin sits below the window with far reaching views to be enjoyed, and the fixtures and fittings are of the same exceptional quality as the bathrooms below.
This house is beautifully situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and green spaces
on your doorstep. Withdean Sports Complex is around the corner, and the city centre
shopping districts and beach are also within easy reach by road. This house also offers easy
access to Preston Park Station, the A27 and A23, all with direct and fast links to the airports
and London should you require them on a daily or weekly basis.
