Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A prime example of Hove's beautiful stucco architecture, this five-bedroom detached family home sits on the west side of a popular street, just off Hove seafront. A double-fronted Victorian villa, it retains much of its period elegance and has been extended to a generous footprint of over 3000 sq ft.

There is abundant natural daylight, thanks to tall bay sash windows fitted with shutters throughout. Neutral decor enhances this further and provides the ideal backdrop to furnish to taste. There are four ground floor reception rooms, all accessed from the hallway. The orangery links to the front drawing room via a central sitting room, to form an enormous interconnected space which can be divided with solid shutters for a cosier feel. The large, well-laid out kitchen easily accommodates a breakfast table and has a back door out. Off the kitchen is the family room, which houses a large laundry cupboard and separate WC, but offers flexibility as it has an additional doorway into the hall. There is also a large cellar with full height ceiling which could serve as a laundry room or den.

On the first floor all five bedrooms are accessed via a split-level landing and comprise four generous doubles and a fifth large single with its own access and a connecting door to one of the front bedrooms, making it the ideal nursery, dressing room or en-suite. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, while the additional bedrooms share a large, light family bathroom with bath, shower and WC, with additional adjacent WC.

Planning permission to convert the loft was obtained, offering enormous future potential, although the house has enjoyed recent upgrades including renovated and draught-proofed sash windows, new boiler, new Victorian schoolhouse style radiators and stripped wood floors. Solar panels on the roof boost the heating, whilst the garage, currently used a gym, could be connected via an internal door to the family room.

Situation

Westbourne Villas runs south from Church Road to Hove Lawns and the beach, with Brighton city centre just 2.4 miles away. There is a large Tesco just 0.6 miles away on Church Road with its myriad restaurants, cafes and shops. Hove Lawns and Hove Park provide green spaces, with the South Downs a short drive away. Local schools include St. Andrew’s Primary, West Hove Nursery and Infants, and Hove Junior School. Independent St. Christopher’s is at the top of the road whilst the secondary schools, Roedean and Brighton College, are well served by school and city buses.

Outside

There are two off-street parking spaces in front of the garage and a lawned area enclosed by flowerbeds, with a tiled path leading to the front door. The rear westerly walled garden has a good size lawn, large paved patio and summer house.
