Full description



Discreetly set back from the road in a highly sought after area of Hove, this striking modern home creates an instant wow factor that’s hard to ignore.

Benefiting from an enviable amount of privacy, this secluded and extensive ‘upside down’ home balances a consistent interior design scheme with sustainable and environmentally friendly architecture. From the full height tinted windows with their cedar frames to the bespoke staircase, contemporary kitchen and refined en suite bathrooms, there is an undeniable sense of style throughout.

IN MORE DETAIL - The consistent design themes that flow within this superior home demonstrate an impressive attention to every detail, while its contemporary finishing touches such as the underfloor heating, Lutron lighting and integrated entertainment system are just some of the many subtle additions that run throughout this spacious property in a functional yet understated manner.

FIRST FLOOR - The warm tones of the bespoke ash staircase sit beneath a vaulted ceiling and lead you up to the open plan first floor.

Beautifully lit by a wealth of full height windows, stretching across the majority of the house and opening onto the spacious balconies, the impressive proportions create plenty of space to relax and entertain. Tasteful porcelain tiles and crisp white walls enhance the feeling of light and space, and a central statement fireplace adds an instant focal point, while the open plan arrangement ensures a highly versatile feel that can be tailored to your own needs.

Perfect for entertaining, this sociable space includes a stylish kitchen that’s beautifully appointed with an impressive array of integrated appliances that includes an espresso machine, microwave and plate warmer. The sultry curves of sleek gloss black cabinets with their eye-catching ruby red Silestone countertops wrap-around effortlessly delineating this commodious first floor, while wide French doors open onto one of the broad balconies making it easy to step outside and relax with the weekend papers.

Adding to the sense of space, a well-sized office room, utility room and WC complete the first floor.

GROUND FLOOR - The large vaulted entrance hall makes an instantly attractive first impression and leads the way to four generously sized double bedrooms each with their own Lefroy Brooks en suite bathrooms.

Looking out onto the landscaped garden, the elegant master suite offers a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. Natural light tumbles in through its trio of landscape windows adding a calm and peaceful while, while a walk-in dressing room supplies a wealth of storage without encroaching on the aesthetics of the room. A large en suite bathroom provides a touch of luxury with its walk-in shower and decadent Airbath.

Equally stylish, three further double bedroom suites offer plenty of family and guest accommodation, and whilst two have contemporary en suite bathrooms, the third features an opulent en suite shower room arranged in an iridescent tile setting.

OUTSIDE - Perfect for entertaining and perfectly private, the beautifully landscaped garden continues the sociable feel with its Mediterranean style.

A wonderful paved terrace and decked tiers offer a magnificent amount of room to relax in the sun, entertain family and friends or take a dip in the hot tub.

A double garage combines with the large private driveway to provide an enviable amount of secure off-road 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 model 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.

A leisurely stroll along The Drive and Grand Avenue takes you directly to Hove Lawns, promenade and beach.

Nearby Hove station offers mainline links for commuters and Shirley Drive offers easy access to the A27/A23.

Local schools include Lancing Prep and Hove Park School and Sixth Form Centre, along with the recently opened Bilingual Primary School. The ever popular Brighton and Hove High School is also easily accessible.
