Why you’ll like it:


Built with ‘the family’ in mind, 1930s architects designed homes with plenty of space to entertain and for families to spend quality time together. This house epitomises this with bright and spacious rooms on the ground floor, and depending on the season, families can choose to cosy up in the living room during the cooler seasons, or dine in the sun room during summer. All four bedrooms are double with far reaching views, and for families with older children, there is ample space for them to entertain independently on occasion.


It has the archetypal exterior for the period with wide bow windows and decorative brick work below the first floor white render. It is set well back from the road by a neat front garden and a brick driveway to fit several cars, and once inside, the scale of the house becomes apparent.


The entrance hall is wide and welcoming, with reception rooms to the left and the right. There are many original features, including the internal doors which have been stripped back, and the décor is fresh but neutral.


To the front, the main reception follows the delightful curve of the building, and to the rear, the second reception and sun room are filled with natural light from the south. The rear wall is entirely glazed to maximise this, and even in the winter, this frames delightful garden views. There is an open fire to warm you as the seasons cool, and the kitchen/breakfast room is easily accessible. This has been fitted with ample units and freestanding appliances, and there’s even space for a kitchen table for less formal dining occasions.


Outside, the garden is a dream for active children who can play ball games to their heart’s delight, and even with play equipment, the lawn space is not compromised. The borders are established, and with such an open outlook it is not overlooked at all. To the rear, an outdoor office/workshop has been built which could have a plethora of uses depending on need, and with an electricity supply and double glazing, you can use it throughout the year.


Returning to the house, there are four bright and spacious double bedrooms which follow the footprint of the rooms below, and each has been painted a soothing and neutral palette creating a blank canvas for future inhabitants. The views come into their own from here, and the bathroom sits centrally to all four bedrooms, with a classic white suite and a shower over the bath.


This is a splendid property, in excellent condition, so you could move straight in; and while much of it has been modernised already, there is still some scope to put your own stamp on it, should you chose.


Bear in Mind:


While this is already a substantial family home, the option is there to develop the loft, and also extend into the garden at the rear if need be.


Owner’s secret


“We lived here for many years, raising the family and creating many happy memories. It was so easy to live here when the children were younger, as the nearby schools are excellent, and there is so much to enjoy within a moment’s walk. The café culture and restaurants of Kemp Town are also a joy, but it is the magical views down to the coast we will miss the most.”


Where it is:


Shops: Local 2 min walk, city centre 15 min walk


Train Station: Brighton Station 30-40 min walk, 8 min drive


Seafront or Park: Queens Park 10 min walk, Seafront 4 min walk


Closest Schools:


Primary:  St Marks, St Lukes Primary School


Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC


Private: Brighton College and Prep, Montessori School


This elegant home is in a sought- after area of this cosmopolitan coastal resort just by the beach with the bohemian café culture and independent, specialist shops of Kemp Town Village, (which also has a bank, a post office, dentist and a pharmacy) around the corner. Good schools, the hospital and law courts are nearby, and the cultural heart of Brighton is within walking distance; as is the Marina with its health club, cinemas and water front restaurants. For those who love the outdoors, a yacht club, golf course and the Downs are on your doorstep. Buses into the city, along the coast and to the universities are nearby and the proximity to Brighton Station with its fast link to Gatwick and London makes commuting possible. For those who commute by car, both the A23/27 are easy to reach.
