why you’ll like it:

Step into a glamorous coastal lifestyle in this private detached home where walls of glass and picture windows frame spectacular views. Inside every room is light and inviting with a high level of finish and designed as a family home, the hallway has practical cherry wood underfoot and a cloakroom is discreetly hidden away.

the ground floor

Quiet and comfortable, a study at the front of the house introduces you to the expert decoration with the subtle tones of Farrow & Ball, used throughout the home. Spanning the full depth of this substantial modern house, sunshine streams through a reception lined with windows where both the far wall of glass and set of French doors bring in a breathtaking vista, and open to a glamorous balcony which wraps around from south to east with plenty of cosmopolitan allure. Inside there’s ample room in which to unwind or entertain and the flame effect fire and energy efficient windows ensure this is a welcoming haven in all seasons.

There’s an easy, social flow into the kitchen diner next door at the heart of which a stylish central island doubles as a breakfast bar for informal suppers or homework as you bake the treat to follow. There’s a choice of lighting level and the high spec Miele appliances include a touch induction hob, combi and fan ovens, microwave, coffee machine, tall fridge, dishwasher and washer drier. There’s a door to the sun terrace making al fresco dining easy, and a door to the garages – so no more getting wet!

the lower floors - with leisure facilities- and garden

Party perfect and family friendly, the lower floor has a playroom with a very high ceiling, access to the garden and a viewing area for watching the games of squash. A cloakroom and garden room are tucked away and downstairs, there’s a sauna, shower and gym as well as the fabulous full size squash court. Outside, by the house a colonnade reminiscent of Venetian squares provides ample space for gatherings regardless of the weather, and it’s open to a level lawn with a discrete paved area for private catch ups when guests or children have retired for the night.

the first floor family bedrooms and family bathroom

The expert attention to detail continues in a luxury shower room lined in marble and traditional in feel, although the walk in shower has a contemporary dual head system, and there’s a heated rail for towels.

With restful garden views, two spacious double bedrooms have tasteful décor and with generous floor space each are ready to move into. At the front, made private by mature trees and shrubs the third double room is used as a peaceful home office.

the guests and master suites – first floor
Bright and cheerful, the guest room is refined of proportion and decoration. Beautiful open views means it isn’t overlooked and the en suite is large enough for a bath where friends can enjoy a few candles and a glass of bubbly.

With fabulous views sweeping over the valley to the Downs which embrace this coastal city, the light and airy master suite is a calm refuge with leafy views at the side and front too, which is unusual even in this affluent part of the city. Instantly restful, there’s all the storage you could dream of and the chic en suite shower room has all you need including natural light.

The Lifestyle:

Withdean is a prestigious area of the city between the sea and the South Downs National Park, and is affectionately known as Brighton’s very own Hollywood Hills. Although the thriving city centre’s just minutes away, this quiet residential road is sought after as an exclusive, leafy secret. Safe and friendly with plenty of amenities nearby, local schools are good and there’s easy access to some of the best private schools in the country as well, including Lancing Prep and Brighton College. Offering a healthy lifestyle inside the house, the nearby Withdean Sports Stadium has a range of leisure facilities including tennis courts, a gym, athletic track, café and restaurant and Withdean Woods Nature Reserve has its own community of joggers and dog walkers. Hove Park is a swift drive and also has a playground and café full of local parents as well as 3 football pitches, 7 tennis courts and a basketball court. Both Brighton and Preston Park Stations, serving Gatwick and London, are easy to reach by car, bus or cab and if you commute by car the A23/M23 are quick to get to as is the A27 to the Amex Stadium near Lewes.

Agent's Thoughts

“Brighton & Hove draws families wanting a healthier lifestyle but with quick access to the city, and this exceptionally luxurious home offers just that.”

Owners Secret:
