why you'll like it
This thrilling property, influenced by the Spanish tradition , is a stunning home, completely comfortable in a large terraced double plot which warmly embraces this home, where every room has access to a sun terrace and to the garden.
Approached through impressive electronic iron gates, there is ample parking to the front of the house, where the front door is found at the top of wide curved steps to the left of the garage. Looking like a continental bungalow, the first surprise of this house is that it is made up of two storeys, and you can see the layers of the terraces as you approach the wide, arched door.
On the left, the steps leading from the hall continue across the room, mounting to the dining area, which has more sliding doors to the terrace and through which are wonderful views across the fountains and the pond to the Downs beyond.
Perfect for entertaining, the kitchen is ahead, with only a stone topped central island/ breakfast bar in view from the dining room. Turning the corner, the bespoke rustic cream units look gorgeous against the glistening black granite of the work surfaces. To your left is the doorway to the entrance hall and then the American style fridge is nicely placed near to the steel gas range cooker which has a stylish steel extractor hood above it. The room is lovely and light thanks to the two remotely controlled skylights and large picture window, with more glorious views by the breakfast bar, and there are four arched windows in the other two walls, the windows on the right having the Franke Sink and tap beneath them. There is also a door here leading to the dining area on the terrace.
the living / dining room
Inside, you step into an exquisite space with a sky light above your head and warm wooden flooring beneath your feet. The whole house has been finished to a high standard, shown in the easy flow of the rooms, quality of finish and luxurious details. To the right, wide steps descend into an enormous living room where the burnished floor continues and reflects all the light from the three sets of sliding leaded windows which lead out to the terrace wrapped around this building. Arched windows echo the graceful front entrance, and to your right is a gilded fireplace within an Adams inspired surround, which has a gas connection.
the guest suite
Returning to the entrance hall, next to the front door is a discreet turn which leads past the internal access to the garage to a sumptuous guest suite, which has two remotely controlled sky lights and an en suite luxury shower room, also accessible through the hallway.
the entertaining area
Stairs lead down to another surprise - a fantastic entertaining area currently used as a private cinema and bar, with access to the lower terrace, and there is a glamorous bathroom along the left leg of the hallway, with a sauna tucked away behind it.
the master suite & private terrace
The master bedroom is also on this floor, with an impressive wall of wardrobes and a room too large to be described as an en suite with a power shower. Vernon Tetbury basins rest in hand made units and there is a magnificent Jacuzzi bath. You can hear the fountains in this room, and the floor to ceiling glass doors do not disappoint, opening onto the private terrace by the garden with views over the large fish pond, swimming pool and the Downs.
Three further spacious bedrooms are on this level, one of which is currently used as a study, and all lead out to the romantic terraces looking over the rolling Downs. There is scope here to arrange these rooms into a self contained unit.
Outside, sweeping verandas and terraces join to lead you past the playful fountains and large dining area (with a scented herb garden near to it), down to a spacious garden with steps to the heated pool and covered dining area with a changing room in the pool house.
Quietly situated between the picturesque village of Rottingdean and the vibrant City of Brighton and Hove, this substantial home is also only a mile and a half from the golf course, and the local secondary school is within an easy walk. Brighton station, with its excellent fast links to Gatwick and London is a short drive away, and there is a regular and reliable bus service along the Coast Road.
bear in mind
The house and gardens both flow really well and none of the rooms are over looked, the swimming pool area occupies the second plot.
"We are only 10 minutes from the city but feel completely secluded and private here."
