Refurbished to an exacting standard with sun terraces on each floor, there is a plunge pool and the English Channel at the back, whilst at the front is a garden and a garage. Quietly tucked away on a private road favoured by celebrities due to its seclusion, this location just 10 minutes from the city centre is well served for good schools, including the award winning Brighton College, and parks.

On your own waterfront and just a stroll from the local high street and Portslade station which serves Gatwick and London, it is also close to several bus routes serving the city centre and coast, and for those who need to commute by car, the A23 and A27 are both readily accessible.

why you’ll like it

Step into a celebrity lifestyle in this exceptional home designed to connect with its unique environment – right on the beach with the rolling waves of the English Channel as far as the eye can see. The discreet front door, secured by a video answer phone system, opens into hallway where the ceiling soars over 3 metres above your head, giving the first indication of the generous scale of the rooms to come, and to your left, a magnificent contemporary staircase sweeps up out of sight.

the living and dining room

Sunshine and sea views stream through the tall, south facing glass wall which runs along the full height and width of this substantial house, and which slides open to the glamorous sun terrace and the beach. Clean lines and a restrained palette keep the focus firmly on the sea, the reflection of which ripples across the ceiling, and in early morning and late evening, this space if full of the fiery colours of the sun. Designed as a family home, with a gleaming but practical oak floor, the space is also subtly zoned, so you can enjoy the winter storms together or with guests as you warm yourselves in front of the open fire, or, if you just want to relax in peace with a good book whilst listening to music through the ceiling speakers, you can close curtains by remote control, retreat to the more private snug area, which has a gas fire of its own, and the neutron light system, offering 2 levels of ambient of lighting, allows you to choose your mood.

With an easy flow, both inside and out, this space is ideal for entertaining and the kitchen is beautifully designed so that although sociably open to the living space, it can only be reached from the hallway, keeping boiling hot pans safely tucked away from the movement in and out of the house.

the kitchen

The designer Windmill kitchen is styled behind a gently curved breakfast bar of white silestone, where guests or family can join you to enjoy the views as you cook. As in the other main rooms in the house, there is an I pad control base here and the sound system above your head is wired so that if the front door bell is rung, the person comes automatically on screen, and any music playing is suspended.

Glossy white units, white silestone work surfaces and glass splash backs keep this space light and feeling uncluttered. Central to the space a 5 ring gas hob, Miele bbq and a grill are all integrated beneath a discreet extractor, flush to the ceiling. Twin Siemens ovens with a warming drawer are thoughtfully placed at eyelevle by a microwave/combi oven and there are two fridges and a freezer already in place for you.  The Blanco sink has a waste disposal facility as well as a hot tap and there is an integrated dishwasher, so all you need to do is to select your level of lighting, and start the party.

the utility room

As you would expect of a home of this quality, there is a separate utility room downstairs by the pool room and a secure door leading out to the garage, perfect for wheeling in buggies.

the ground floor sun terrace and beach

Central, sliding doors control the access to the spacious sun terrace which has a heated plunge pool, a shower, lighting for supper parties and built in speakers. You can just step down to your own, personal beach where the waves lap against the pebbles and all that you can see is open water. Heaven.

the media room and guest cloakroom

Opening into the front garden, ideal for friends to spill out into after the movie, the media room has a 6 channel stereo system for surround sound. In a house of this size, the use of space can be flexible and in the past this has been a playroom and a bedroom for an au pair. Across the hallway, the guest cloakroom impresses as it’s lined in slate, and a glamorous William Holland copper hand basin rests on green marble.

the master suite

All about relaxing in a magnificent setting, the immaculate master bedroom has restful sea views and a quiet sun terrace from which to enjoy them. The luxury en suite wet room is large enough for both a fabulous baignoir and a spacious walk in shower with a rainfall head, and twin sinks sunk into marble look out to sea. The w.c is separate, and behind you the large walk in closet is gently lit by funnel sky lights to keep your fabric colours fresh.

the guest room

With special views over the sea, the guest room is currently used as an office. You can watch the sun set from the sun terrace and the open vista can be enjoyed even from bed.

Two more double bedrooms and the family bathroom

With generous proportions – the ceilings on the first floor are a high 2.4 metres – both of these peaceful and private double bedrooms are ready to move into.

The family bathroom is stylish, lined in natural slate and stone and there is a shower above the bath, a heated rail for towels and as throughout the house, there is heating underfoot.

bear in mind
