Why you’ll like it:

Raised up and set well back from the street stands these new contemporary homes. They have all the modern design features which epitomise current home building trends with crisp white render, slate roofs and charcoal window and door frames - yet these are blended with the traditional characteristics of neighbouring homes with gables, and Neo-Georgian proportions favoured in 1930s architecture.

You approach the house from Colebrook Road where a neat brick drive sweeps past both houses; with this one being first on the left from the road, and where you can leave the car parked directly outside. The front door is solid oak, and this welcomes you into a wide entrance hall where white walls and wooden floors in ashy tones stretch out before you into the bright and generous open plan living and dining room. This is the width of the house, and has two sets of French doors leading out to the garden, and there’s ample space in here for separate dining and seating areas. The kitchen is sizable, and tucked away to the left, but is still open to the room making it a very sociable space. This is an impressive space which has been designed well using quality materials, fixtures and fittings, and the units are plenty in high gloss olive grey. The lower units are topped with Corian surfaces is a darker yet complementary shade, and the sink is seamlessly cut into this. All appliances are integrated, including a fridge freezer, dishwasher and a 5 ring gas hob. They are all AEG and the double oven has been thoughtfully placed in a tower. The washing machine is located in the utility room which is accessed from the entrance hall, and this has space for a dryer too.

Returning to the hall, past a separate WC (an essential element in any shared space), is the turning staircase to the first floor which has plush grey carpets underfoot, and a stunning glass and oak balustrade. There are two double bedrooms on this floor with new but traditionally styled radiators in white. The bathroom is fully tiled with a monsoon shower over the bath, and it is on trend with Moroccan inspired floor tiles in a monochrome print. There’s also a large vanity unit below the basin to keep the space clutter free, and a tall heated towel rail completes the look.

A further flight of stairs takes you to the second floor which mirrors the one below with two more double bedrooms and a shower room, all in the same stylish palette as the rest of the house. Both bedroom floors also have built in cupboards in the hall to maximise the space in the bedrooms.

Bear in mind:

The south facing garden feels like it is at the front of the house as it faces Tongdean Lane, but being raised up behind smart fencing means it doesn’t feel overlooked.
