Tenure: Freehold

Deco glamour, exotic gardens and stunning views over Saltdean’s Oval to the sea ensures this luxury four bedroom house with off-street parking and a garage stands out from the crowd. Expertly refurbished and extended with a polished level of finish, this is effectively a new detached home and it’s just five minutes from the beach, and ten from Brighton.


Beautifully extended, this art deco house has been transformed into a fabulous family home with stylish gardens and energy efficient windows following every curve.

Inside pays homage to the 1930’s with evocative touches like the chrome door handles and copper bannisters, whilst the new layout is ideal for a contemporary lifestyle and maximises enjoyment of the breath taking views – and it’s worth heading straight to a first floor full of sunshine and stunning views which sweep over rolling Downland to the glittering sea. Ideal for entertaining, the L shape of the room allows for natural zoning with an easy, social flow. The dark Karndean flooring and blue and white palette continues into the kitchen. Curved Corian surfaces top reflective units which conceal ample storage and also boasts high spec integrated appliances including a 5 ring AEG gas hob beneath a steel and glass hood, twin combi ovens, a wine cooler, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There’s also a discreet cupboard with plumbing for a machine in a broad area where the owners had planned to put a door and build a deco inspired balcony.

Outside, there’s a secluded terrace for dining which steps up to a big lawn made private by mature shrubs and trees with a south side beach hut, and there’s a third tier at the back.

On the ground floor, the first of the quiet double bedrooms looks over Saltdean to the sea, with a gentle curve to the wall. The second double room has spectacular views both inside and out, and next door the family bathroom has a classic deco pairing of eau de nil and black tiles with a chic suite in keeping with the age of the building. Central to this floor, the glamorous master bedroom opens to a Juliette balcony and you can enjoy the vista across the park to the cliffs and English Channel even from bed. A fabulous dressing area has fitted wardrobes to each side and leads to a modern en suite shower room, wet room in style.

Private and peaceful on the first floor, the fourth guest bedroom looks over gardens and at street level, there’s a games room with access to the garage.

the lifestyle

The friendly community of Saltdean is by the sea and on the edge of the National South Downs Park. Popular with families and professionals, it has plenty of local shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a central park which has miniature golf, tennis courts, a playground and café- and the primary school is Ofsted rating good at the time of writing. The coastal village of Rottingdean is just around the corner, Downland villages are on your doorstep and you are also only 10 minutes from the cosmopolitan Marina with its harbourside restaurants, health club and cinemas. About a 20- minute drive from Brighton’s City centre and close to bus routes, with bus lanes, access along the coast and to universities at Falmer is fast and frequent. Don’t forget that both the county town of Lewes and Gatwick are commutable at about 30 and 45 minutes.

agent's thoughts

Immaculate inside and out, this home provides the best of both worlds, close to the city but peaceful at night.

what the owner says

Living here offers unique opportunities to enjoy the different times of day and night, whilst looking at an ever changing panorama. We think it is coastal living at its best. Watching the sun rise over the sea whilst drinking the first coffee, contemplating what the day holds is a great way to start the morning.

Every day is different, the light, reflections, patterns in the sky and sea are mesmerising. The house is always full of light and warmth.

Walks down to the beach to bathe in the sea, swim in the Lido or walk along the dramatic under cliff path are some of the ways we spend a lazy Sunday. All of this on our doorstep.
