why you’ll like it
This tranquil cul de sac is one of Kemp Town’s best kept secrets and this striking home’s the centrepiece of a small development of sustainable homes. Set back from the quiet road by a broad courtyard with statement planting, this brick house has clean lines, the aluminium energy efficient windows indicating that although bright in summer, in winter energy costs are kept down.
The smart front door opens into a hallway with inviting glimpses through the house to the garden, and a discreet guest cloakroom tucked away. Stylish grey porcelain underfoot continues ahead, into a sun filled living room which would not look out of place in a glossy magazine. The far wall is mainly glass, the tall, floor to ceiling doors folding open to bring the garden in. Expertly thought through, this fabulous open space runs along the whole of the back of the house, with a horseshoe shape allowing subtle zoning, so although sociable with ample room for sophisticated entertaining, you won’t be on top of each other all the time. In summer the room will be full of the scents of the landscaped garden, whilst during winter, the windows and walls will close, the lights will dim and a cosy haven is instantly created! Sociable but not dominant, the kitchen is tucked around the corner by the dining area, so you can chat with your family and friends as you cook. A stylish mix of grey and white units are topped by smooth 'Duropal' (very hard wearing and heat resistant)
work surfaces and have reflective, green glass splash backs. Two levels of lighting keep this a bright and cheerful space in which to work at any time, although with two levels of lighting, you can choose your mood as well. All the integrated appliances are high spec and include a gas hob, extractor, combi and fan ovens, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, so this is a kitchen that’s ready for a housewarming. Outside, the garden’s ideal for al fresco dining with paving and raised beds which are imaginatively planted, and lighting’s in place for supper parties, too.
At the top of the glamorous oak and glass staircase, which has inset led lights, the luxury bathroom’s decorated in fashionable shades of grey. There’s a dual head shower above the contemporary bath, storage beneath the hand basin and a heated rail for towels.
Next door, the guest bedroom looks over the garden, and mature trees make it unusually private for this convenient location. Comfortable and well decorated, there’s also a double wardrobe all ready. Central to the floor, the second of the double bedrooms is light and airy and used as a quiet study and private and peaceful at the end of the hall, the master bedroom’s ready to move into with calm décor, a deep closet and a chic en suite shower room with natural light and all the trimmings.
bear in mind
Quiet and convenient, this location has a community feel and great transport links into the city. This stylish house was built in 2015 to an exacting standard achieving a good SH code. The energy efficient features include high specification acoustic and heat insulation, under floor heating in the kitchen and LED lighting, all helping to ensure that energy bills are kept down.
what the owner says
“The neighbours are friendly and as there’s no passing traffic it’s quiet, too. You can be in the sea or on the Downs in minutes and as they’re all easy to reach, you can choose to enjoy the modern delights of the Marina, the relaxed café culture of the Village or the characterful, cultural heart of the city.”
