Full description

A quiet haven with the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park at the end of its big sunny garden, this spacious four bedroom Arts and Crafts house with integral garage and off street parking has a very exclusive location. Built in 1930 in ‘Tudorbethan’ style, leaded windows, oak beams and open fireplaces bring warm character to an impressive home with an ingenious social flow to the ground floor where rooms still remain discrete to allow for day to day privacy– and this large detached property is in the prestigious village of Rottingdean, bordered by beaches.

This architectural jewel sits comfortably within it’s own grounds and you’ll appreciate Rottingdean’s famous black windmill every time you leave the house. A glass fronted porch has a seat where you can take off your walking boots and inside, discreet practical touches continue in a hall which impresses with its oak beams and staircase, but there’s also a modern cloakroom tucked away.

The living room, kitchen/diner and study

Sunshine streams through a vaulted extension which runs along the whole of the back of the house, framing the leafy garden and countryside views and ingeniously linking the kitchen, living room and study whilst keeping the areas distinct. Ideal for parties as well as family gatherings, the south east wall is lined with windows and opens to the garden. At the heart of this home, the central living room has plenty of space to play with and it’s a cosy haven to return to in winter as the stylish extension is actually double glazed and the arched, brick fireplace is open.

Also leading out to the garden, with doors to the side passage and to the sun terrace by the dining area, the country kitchen brims with rustic charm – in keeping with the views of protected Downland – and clever design has a tall fridge freezer and plumbing for three machines tucked out of sight. There’s ample storage and work surfaces, a deep larder to keep things clutter free and the fabulous multi fuel Rangemaster could stay, subject to circumstance and negotiation.

Currently used as a games room, the generous study has verdant views and is large enough to share. The sturdy door in the far wall opens to the garage, so no more getting wet, and it would also be a useful entrance for clients if you work from home as they wouldn’t disturb the main house.

The formal dining room

Big and bright at the front of the house with windows in two walls, one of which looks across to Rottingdean Mill, the elegant dining room has a hatch to the kitchen – although with so much space at the back of the house you could use this grandly proportioned room as a reception if you wanted a child/pet free space. A high ceiling is adorned with beams, there’s a decorative plate rail and the attractive brick fireplace is in working order.

The master bedroom suite

Quiet and calm, the master bedroom gazes over your garden to the beautiful South Downs– so it’s nice and private. With restful dimensions you should sleep well, and it’s ready to move into with tasteful décor and a fitted wardrobe. En suite, the chic shower room’s a timeless classic with all you need to feel a little bit special.

Three first floor bedrooms and family bathroom

Light and airy, all three double bedrooms are peaceful and each have plenty of character of their own and uniquely, all have open views across to countryside.

At the end of a bright landing, the stylish Art Deco bathroom is a joy, but it also embraces the future with the addition of a shower attachment and there’s a separate w.c. next door, useful in a busy home.

The gardens

Latched gates sweep open to the garage and pedestrian path which steps along a front garden made private from the no through street by a mature hedge, and the gates to each side of the house are useful for bikes, boards and supermarket deliveries.

With horses frolicking in the field behind, it’s easy to forget that you’re just minutes from the thriving city of Brighton & Hove in a lovely back garden full of birdsong. Spacious and secure, the lawn provides a large open space for play, there’s a paved, lit terrace by the house making al fresco dining easy and you can have supper together when the children or guests are in bed at the far end of the garden, either in the sun on the raised decked area or in the summer house if it’s cooler.

Agent's thoughts

In an exclusive location, there’s plenty of space to play with inside and out if you want to put your own stamp on it.
