Why you’ll love it:

For several years now, Hollingdean’s popularity has grown exponentially as more families move here from the city centre looking for homes with more space, surrounded by greenery, and with that illusive free parking! Unlike the city’s other residential areas, it does not feel on the outskirts, as it is still a fantastic location for schools, stations, and transport links. There’s a vibrant art scene with several houses mapped on The Open House trail during the Brighton Festival, and there are often community events held in the park during the summer. This house sits on the western side of the valley close to Fiveways, so the school run and shops are easy to come by, and being built into the hillside, it has a raised front elevation which adds to its sense of privacy. The façade has the archetypal features of the period with hung tiles and wide bay windows, and a turning stairway leads to your door below an arched porch.

This house has been well-designed with plenty of storage throughout, so upon entry, there is a cupboard for your coats and shoes, and one under the stairs for household items. To the right is the through living and dining room which stretches the depth of the house, and with a sunny east to west aspect, natural light flows right through the house during the day. French doors lead outside to the tiered garden from here, and with this being elevated further, you can sit outside during the summer months to gaze out over the city

to the rolling hills of the South Downs in the distance. The upper section of garden has been decked to provide a comfortable space for dining alfresco, and mature planting provides complete privacy from the neighbours at the rear. There are two sheds on the lower level to house your garden furniture as well as a tumble dryer, and the flower beds are established to come into bloom during spring.

Inside, the living room is homely with an open fire to warm you during the winter (although this will require professional investigation prior to first use), and there are clearly defined areas for formal dining and a corner suite.

The kitchen is easily accessible from here, and while it is a bijou space, it has been designed well to cater for all your culinary needs. There are open shelves for utensils, crockery and cookbooks, plus the gas hob and fan oven have been integrated, leaving space for a tall fridge freezer and a washing machine. It would be easy to modernise in here with contemporary style units, and there would be space for a slim-line dishwasher if the space was reconfigured.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and one spacious single; two enjoying the far-reaching and ever-changing vista – a joy to wake up to, and to the rear, bedroom three looks out over the peaceful garden. They have all been carpeted and have double glazed windows, so you can always ensure a restful night’s sleep. These rooms share use of the family bathroom which has a classic white suite paired with coral walls, and clever storage solutions have been built-in above the window. As with the lower floor, these rooms have vintage style radiators which warm each space perfectly as the weather cools, and are on-trend: painted in white.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite has been built into the loft space, and again enjoys a huge amount of storage within the eaves and the stairwell. The double bed has been placed below the Velux window so you can stargaze as you drift off to sleep, and the en suite shower room is a good size with a power shower and a heated rail for your towels.

Bear in Mind:

While this house is fine to move straight into, there is plenty of scope for modernisation and even extension to the ground floor kitchen area which could be opened to the dining room creating a bright, open plan family space.

Owner’s secret:

“We have lived in Hollingdean for many years, and we have always loved the wonderful sense community you find here with many families living in theses streets due to the favoured school catchment. We will certainly miss the views as they change so

beautifully with the seasons, and the location is great with Fiveways no close-by, so we won’t be moving far.”

Where it is:

Shops: Local 3 min walk, North Laines 20 min walk

Station: London Road 10 min walk, Brighton 10 min bus ride

Seafront or Park: Blakers Park 6 min walk, seafront 10 min bus ride

Closest Schools:

Primary: Downs Infants and Junior Schools, Hertford Infants School

Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC

Private: Brighton College

This is a characterful and versatile family home in a popular location which is well served for shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23 and stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
