Full description

ELEGANT 5 BEDROOM DETACHED HOUSE WITH IDYLLIC GARDENS, SEA VIEWS AND OFF-STREET PARKING.

Dating back to the early 20th century, the prestigious Tongdean area was originally developed as a partly rural ‘hamlet’ for well-heeled Edwardians and the simple layout remains unchanged to this day.

Set back from a quiet tree-lined road, this extensive house offers the tranquillity of a classic English country garden and a beautiful sense of peacefulness and privacy. Highly versatile, its expansive layout combines a hugely sociable open plan kitchen/living/dining/TV room with a separate games room, study and five generously sized double bedrooms to create a wonderful example of a family home.


IN MORE DETAIL - Arranged over four storeys, crisp white walls, soft pale carpets and richly toned walnut floors instantly create a warm and welcoming first impression, enhancing the ample amount of natural light which flows throughout the house.

GROUND FLOOR - Looking out onto the colour and greenery of the idyllic rear garden, an extensive open plan ground floor offers an incredibly versatile and sociable space. Beautifully lit the spacious living room area creates a fantastic space to relax and entertain. Effortlessly extending this impressive room still further, wide sliding doors open onto a superb south-west facing terrace, making it easy to step outside and enjoy family meals in the summer sun.

Step down into the sunken TV/sitting room where beneath a set of tall rooflight windows a contemporary fireplace adds a homely touch, and a magnificently sized window offers more views of the idyllic gardens.

Continuing the sociable feel, the easy flowing layout includes a large dining room area that offers ideal family and formal entertaining space.

Fully fitted with a wealth of sleek handle-less cabinets and sparkling grey Caesarstone countertops, the brilliantly designed contemporary kitchen offers every convenience with its well-appointed range of mostly Miele appliances, pull-out pantry cupboards and ample storage. A double Franke sink is perfectly placed for you to admire the vibrant lavender plants of the landscaped front gardens, while a large kitchen island provides a convenient space to enjoy a morning coffee with the weekend papers.

Separate study and utility rooms add to the sense of space, while a stylish WC with an eye-catching basin completes the ground floor.

GARDEN LEVEL - Opening onto the garden, a dual aspect games room provides plenty of possibilities depending on your needs. Generously proportioned, it easily accommodates a snooker table, but could also be a library, home office or teenagers’ den.

FIRST FLOOR - Continuing the simple graceful design theme of the ground floor, a spacious master bedroom creates an instant wow factor that’s hard to ignore with the lovely sea views from its bay windows. A wall of tasteful fitted wardrobes supplies an enviable amount of storage, while a mirrored wall slides open to discreetly reveal a well-sized en suite bathroom where a Jacuzzi bath lends a touch of luxury.

The adjacent double bedroom enjoys sea views of its own, and two further double bedrooms on this floor provide plenty of additional family accommodation.

Arranged in a rich mosaic tile setting, the classic suite of the family bathroom features a full size bath with overhead shower.

SECOND FLOOR - Perfect for guests or teenagers, the fifth double bedroom offers a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. Step out onto its balcony and soak up more of those sea views or relax while you watch the sun set over the horizon. Deep eaves cupboards provide ample storage without encroaching on the aesthetics of the room, and an en suite shower room adds a convenient finishing touch.

OUTSIDE - Bordered by its refined grey iron railings, a deep paved terrace offers a wonderful amount of space to entertain friends and family while you admire the idyllic garden.

Picture perfect, south-west facing, secluded and peaceful, this classic English garden offers something for everyone. Statuesque trees add greenery and privacy all year round, and dappled shade to the large well-maintained lawn, while lovingly tended lilacs, hydrangeas, clematis, and roses, to name but a few, add graceful splashes of colour.

Adding a contemporary twist, the landscaped front garden evokes an attractive first impression with its beds of lavender and wide slate tiled steps. Two generously sized driveways supply convenient off-street parking.

IN THE LOCAL AREA - Sitting near to Hove Park there is an abundance of outdoor facilities close at hand ranging from tennis courts, children’s playground and bowling green to a café, picnic area and working miniature railway.

A Waitrose superstore is within walking distance and the shops and amenities of Seven Dials, Church Road and Goldstone Villas are all easily accessible, while the independent shops of Woodland Avenue are just around the corner.

Nearby Hove and Preston Park stations offers mainline links for commuters and local schools include Lancing College Prep, Windlesham School, BHASVIC and Hove Park School and Sixth Form Centre, along with the popular Bilingual Primary School. The ever popular Brighton and Hove High School is also easily accessible.

This detached home is in Council Tax band G which was charged at £3,131.72 for 2019/20.
