Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Double fronted, this five bedroom Victorian villa is the jewel in the crown that is Clifton Terrace. Grade II listed, with a south facing garden as well as use of exclusive gated grounds, there's a fabulous first floor reception, spacious bedrooms and a luxurious master suite at the top with panoramic sea views. As the premier end of terrace, it's larger than most and unique to the row there are three garages - a very rare find in this particularly prestigious central location close to the sea, chic shopping and the station.

Why you'll like it

This magnificent listed villa is opposite the manicured gardens for exclusive use of Clifton Terrace residents and rises over four storeys with symmetrical south facing bay windows on the first floor shaded by iconic glass "curtains". Sensitively brought into the 21st century with only the highest quality of materials, a Davenport kitchen, luxury bathrooms, underfloor heating and discreet Sonos system have been installed, so head and heart will fall for this architectural gem which has been so carefully refurbished to an unusually high specification.

The family room, kitchen diner, media room & utility

The formal entrance opens to an impressive hall with a fine example of a period staircase sweeping up to the formal reception whilst open, relaxed steps curve down to a welcoming family room, shimmering in designer paper. Light and airy, it opens to the south facing garden which becomes another 'room' of the house during summer. During winter, this space transforms into a cosy haven as the soft, stylish Amtico flooring conceals underfloor heating and the wood burning stove adds warmth as well as character.

Created specifically for the house by Davenport, although high spec, the kitchen's in keeping with the age of the house with shaker style ivory units topped by gleaming granite surfaces. The integrated appliances are all high end including a Falcon wine fridge and Siemens American style fridge freezer ideal for those who like to entertain, and the touch induction Britannia electric range could stay, subject to circumstance. A sociable breakfast bar's inviting and as in the family room, there's underfloor heating and discreet speakers in the ceiling here as well. A broad bay at the front means you can keep a subtle eye on guests in the garden and behind you, broad stairs lead to a private media/play room with a skylight above your head and heating underfoot.

As the family come in through the garden gate, this floor's practical as well as glamorous: there's a big cupboard tucked away for boots and bags and a spacious utility's out of sight, so sports kits can go straight into the wash and wet suits hung up. The double garage with remote controlled doors is also accessed on this level- so no more getting wet- and the media room could be reinstated as a third garage as the door to the street remains.

The drawing room - first floor

Sunshine streams through this elegant room with refined proportions and decoration. Spanning the full width of this substantial house, two deep bay windows fill the room with glorious views over the manicured gardens and the room naturally zones into dining and drawing room areas - with bi folding, central doors keeping your options open. Original hand crafted roses are high above your head, a dark floor gleams in the sunlight and open, working fireplaces at each end of the room add to the restful symmetry.

The study / guest room & shower room

Across the hall is the spacious study or comfortable double guest room. The high ceiling has period detail, the carpet is lusciously deep and there's a Victorian fireplace with iron inset. The luxury shower room's central to the landing. It's lined in polished marble and there are glamorous Burlington fittings complete with drench shower head.

Three second floor bedrooms & bathroom

The meticulous attention to detail continues in these three delightful double bedrooms, all big, bright and ready to move into with stylish décor and fitted wardrobes. At the front, both rooms have views across the garden enclosures. The room to the right has glimpses of the sea, whilst the third bedroom's irresistible as it also has an open, leafy outlook too. Light and airy, the sumptuous bathroom has options as the bath has a shower above it, and the classic black and white palette's given a subtle contemporary twist by cool, textured tiles.

The master bedroom suite

Peaceful and private at the top, you'll bathe in glory in a fabulous, elliptical slipper bath, and the amazing walk in shower's worth mentioning as it has an amazing rainfall head. Intended to refresh and relax, there's both underfloor heating and a heated rail for towels.

At the front of the house, the south the south wall of the master bedroom's lined with windows which frame unique, panoramic views of the coast during the day with the sea a glittering horizon. At night, surrounded by trees, it becomes an atmospheric, calm retreat. With plenty of room to play with, built in wardrobes at each end of the room provide all the clothes space you could wish for, and the room's beautifully private as it isn't overlooked.

The gardens

Sunny and spacious, the south facing garden by the house has two levels, so the dining area's nice and private. Paved for ease of maintenance, there's attractive statement planting, and ambient lighting is in place. A nominal sum is payable for the upkeep of the extensive and beautiful communal gardens.

Agent's thoughts

Clifton Terrace is one of the most prestigious areas in Brighton. To be so close to the city centre and the train station with views of the sea makes these rare houses highly sought-after.

Owner's secret

"This has been a lovely home to bring up a family. We've enjoyed our private garden as well as meeting neighbours in the enclosures and it's worked well for us a couple, as restaurants and theatres are within minutes, so we can get home quickly if grandma needs help with the children!"
