The property was constructed in the 1940’s and has been extensively remodelled by the current owners to a very high specification with great emphasis on spacious and bright living areas. The house was carefully designed by local award winning architects to meet the needs of a modern family. The house is very energy efficient and incorporates renewable energy sources including Air Source Heat pump, Photovoltaic (PV) panels, Solar thermal panels and sun tube. These combined with wood burning stoves, underfloor heating, double glazing and high levels of insulation keep the running costs to a minimum. The house has also formed part of Brighton Councils ‘Open Eco Houses’ in recent years.

Hollingbury Copse is a small select residential close off Ditchling Road. It is ideally situated for easy access to schools for children of all ages and with excellent local shopping available nearby at Fiveways. Further shopping available nearby on Carden Avenue including Marks & Spencer Food Hall, Next and the Asda supermarket. Excellent public transport to all parts of Brighton is accessible on Ditchling Road and Preston Park mainline railway is approx.20 minutes’ walk.

Owners Notes:

The house was designed as the prefect family home for us when the children were 9 and 12.

It has now proved to be the perfect lock down home. During this difficult time, we have had 4 adults living and working full time from home.

 We have had comfort, space, privacy and access to amenities throughout and realise how lucky we have been. In many ways we have seen the house at its best.

 Each of us has had office space and we still have the large sitting room, kitchen and spare bedroom to use as a family.

 We have internal and external space to exercise.

 Other than the master bedroom everyone else has had their own bathroom.

 We have two beautiful gardens and the workshop garage which has meant we can be together or private.

 The lay out of the house has meant people can work in areas isolated from places where other are relaxing.

 The arrangements have been:-

 Small sitting room: office space for one adult

 Bedroom 5 is now used as a home office for one adult and we have set up a home gym space.

 Bedroom 4: office space that does not impact on the use of the room as a bed room and  sitting room for our adult daughter

 Bedroom 3. Office space that does not impact on the use of the room as a bed room and sitting room for our adult son.

  The house is in easy walking distance to the following amenities that have been so valuable during this time:-

  Hollingbury park and the golf course that now seems to be extended parkland

  Local shops where we can buy vegetables, meat, general groceries

  Fantastic local off license
