Conjuring a sense of elegance from a bygone age, Kemps is thought to be the oldest habitable dwelling in Portslade’s Old Village.

Built in 1540 and exuding an unmistakable amount of charm with its original inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and flint faced walls, this superb semi-detached home combines an abundance of original period features with tasteful contemporary finishing touches to create a fantastic family home. With a lovely sense of height and space, an easy flowing layout includes two reception rooms, a stylish modern kitchen/dining room, an additional bar room and four double bedrooms.


GROUND FLOOR - Beautifully lit by a duo of tall sash windows and French doors opening onto the garden, the exposed beams and magnificent inglenook fireplace of the main reception create a breath-taking backdrop that’s hard to ignore.

Offering an impressive amount of room to relax and entertain, the warm tones of its engineered floor add to the feeling of space, while the working fireplace provides a picture perfect finishing touch.

Discreetly tucked away behind the chimney breast, a separate study/office room with a feature bungaroosh wall is ideal for those who work from home.

Across the hallway, an equally elegant and generously proportioned sitting room, with its own working inglenook fireplace and dual aspect sash windows, supplies a peaceful retreat at the end of the day.

LOWER GROUND FLOOR – Adding a contemporary twist to this 16th century home, a sympathetically styled kitchen/dining room is fully fitted with a wealth of modern Shaker-style cabinets. Well-appointed with a Stoves range cooker, large white ceramic sink and underfloor heating; its gloss tiled floor and metro tiled splashbacks ensure the lovely flow of natural light continues. Great for entertaining, this sociable space easily accommodates a formal dining table, while the delicate patterns of a feature wall lend a subtle splash of colour.

Echoing the sociable feel, the underfloor heating and gloss tiled floor continues in the adjacent bar room where natural light tumbles down from an eye-catching atrium, and an elegant wood panelled bar is perfectly sized for you to serve aperitifs to your guests.

A convenient WC completes this stylish floor.

UPSTAIRS - The charming staircase leads you upstairs where four double bedrooms provide ideal family accommodation over the upper two storeys of this historic family home.

Looking out over the village from its dual aspect windows, the supremely graceful master bedroom on the first floor creates an enviably calm and peaceful feel with its exposed beams and white walls. The solid wood window frames highlight once again this home’s original character, while deep window sill seats supply an idyllic spot to watch the world go by.

Across the hallway, a second large double bedroom is equally well-proportioned, while up on the top floor an exposed brick fireplace adds a cosy finishing touch the third bedroom that also benefits from its own walk-in shower.

Thought to have once been a secret Quakers meeting place, the fourth double bedroom is the icing on the cake with its oriel window, wooden wardrobe and eaves cupboards.

Two family bathrooms provide plenty of convenience for today’s busy lifestyles, and while a stylish modern bathroom on the first floor effortlessly combines heritage charm with a refined ripple stone mosaic setting; behind a sleek glass partition it’s the wet-room shower and large bath that add a touch of luxury.

OUTSIDE - Engendering an easy flowing extension of the main reception room, wide French doors open onto a tastefully landscaped and highly private garden whose slate tiled tiers offer an idyllic and stylish space to relax in the sun with the weekend papers or entertain friends and family.

The different tiers allow you to chase the sun throughout the day, while the mood lighting of the bar room filters up through the roof of its atrium sharing its rich hues.

IN THE LOCAL AREA - Centred round a classic village green in a conservation area, Portslade Village retains much of its original 16th century charm and character. Peppered with historic buildings such as Portslade Old Manor and St Nicholas’ Church which dates back to c1150, as part of the Portslade Old Village Conservation Area, the High Street itself has a wealth of history and is popular with artists and historians.

Today, as one of the 21 wards in the city of Brighton and Hove, Portslade Village combines a traditional village feel with all the conveniences of modern life. The twittens and original period cottages with their flint faced facades of this Sussex village are only moments away from the bustling shops and amenities of South Portslade, and the centre of Hove.

Approximately a mile away, Portslade mainline station offers convenient routes for commuters to London and Gatwick airport, and there is easy access to regular bus services into the centre of Portslade and down to the seafront.

Local schools include King’s School Hove, Peter Gladwin Primary School, Hillside School and Brackenbury Primary School.

At the moment the High Street is not in a controlled Residents Parking permit zone, and this historic home is in Council Tax band E which is charged at £2,296.59 for 2019/20.
