Tenure: Freehold

A perfect fusion of Art Deco style and spectacular sea views from an exclusive cliff top in Roedean, this luxury five bedroom home boasts a ground floor that dreams are made of and a fantasy master suite with breath-taking ocean views. Sun soaked terraces face the English Channel on every floor, the beautifully landscaped garden faces south, and you have ample off-street parking with a secure, gated drive to the front and a double garage at the rear. The beach and yacht berths of Brighton Marina are easy to reach as are the walks and bridle paths of the South Downs National Park. You'll have access to some of the best schools in the country, including Roedean and Brighton College, with the cultural heart of the city just a five minute cab ride away. For commuters, the station serving Gatwick and London is easy to get to by car or by bus.

The Art Deco movement symbolised a sophisticated lifestyle using expensive, luxury materials and exquisite craftmanship to create striking homes where deceptively simple elegance masked a commitment to practical function.
With high spec fittings, meticulous interior design and energy efficient aluminium windows which bring light and sea views into the heart of the home, this beautiful house is a stunning contemporary interpretation of the classic 'style moderne'.

The ground floor

Sweeping through the electronic gate to the hard standing and formal garden, grey render, crittal style windows and iconic curves tempt you through to a front door which opens to a ground floor designed to focus on the magnificent views of the sea - which pour in through the glass walls ahead. Cool limed grey flooring, high ceilings and white walls eliminate any distraction from the view and discreetly tucked away to one side, a large boot room has a fitted bench and a cloakroom.

Spanning the full width of this fabulous cliff top mansion, the sculptural living space embraces the sunshine, opening to the sun terrace and garden and flowing around the warmth of a central bio-ethanol fireplace. The fabulous Poggenpohl kitchen is designed for entertaining with sleek doors to the veranda and top of the range Gaggenau fittings. A sociable central island has ambient lighting, integrated touch induction hob, Novy hood, quooker tap, dishwasher and a stainless steel top whilst the streamlined units conceal sophisticated storage solutions and incorporate a wine cooler, tall fridge, ice dispenser, steam oven and dual ovens with a warming tray.

As you'd expect of a house of this quality, there's a utility area tucked away and at the foot of a private staircase to the bedrooms, a secluded study could also be a convenient base for staff.

The garden & garage

Private and sheltered with a fabulous seascape, a sunny decked terrace steps down to an al fresco dining area. Lit stairs lead to a curving lawn surrounded by mature, statement planting and a second dining area is centred within a water feature and sheltered from sea winds by custom made, hand cast metal screens. This restful retreat five minutes from the city centre is a real sun trap and there's a secret gate out to the lane below and the double garage.

Four double bedrooms (3 en suite) & family bathroom - first floor

Upstairs, at the front of the house the peaceful guest bedroom is beautifully decorated and has a luxury en suite shower room with a rainfall head. At the other end of the hallway, the second of the double bedrooms looks over the garden to the sea and has a walk in closet and chic en suite. Across the hall, a luxury bathroom shimmers in designer tiles and opposite a central double with sea views and balcony, ideal as a nursery, opens to a decked veranda where you can greet the day. The pared back elegance continues next door in a spacious suite of rooms - the bedroom and dressing room enjoy the glorious seascape, whilst a skylight provides complete privacy in a bathroom intended to impress.

The master suite - second floor

Deco style at its most glamorous, this master suite spans the entirety of the top floor. Spacious, restful and ready to move into, principled design focuses on the fabulous coastal location. With sleek lines and touches of luxury, your personal space is intentionally reminiscent of the 1st class salons of an ocean liner and even opens to its own private balcony with views over the safe harbour of the Marina to the English Channel. Spa like, an iridescent en suite is large enough for both a bath and separate shower and there are two big walk in closets to enjoy.
