Property description

** guide price £900,000 - £950,000 **

This generously proportioned home currently has three bedrooms in the main house and a large guest room on the lower ground floor which could easily be converted into a self- contained apartment. In a popular conservation area within minutes of Brighton College, the Hospitals, the Village and the sea this flexible home has been sensitively updated whilst retaining precious period detail, and has both a courtyard and a charming west facing garden.

On a popular tree lined street close to the fashionable Kemp Town Village, Brighton College and the Hospital, this substantial house with flexible options stands in a terrace of imposing Victorian homes and blends with its prosperous neighbours with its buttermilk exterior. The smart front door opens into a practical vestibule with ornate cornicing high above your head leading into a deep, welcoming hallway. To your left is a grand double reception room, with floral garlands still wending their way around the ceilings. Originally two rooms there is a generous bay window at the front of the room which also has an elegant period fireplace now housing a gas fire. The dining end of the room also has a handsome fireplace and tall French doors open to include a west facing balcony into this wonderful entertaining space. The central wall has double doors, so that together with the dimmer switches, you can alter the mood of the room from social and sunny in the summer, to warm and intimate in winter.

Along the hallway is a cheerful kitchen, where there are plenty of buttercup coloured units with family friendly work surfaces. A cooks kitchen designed for entertaining, there is a breakfast bar for guests to chat or children to do homework as you cook. The Bosch gas hob and twin electric ovens, one of which is a combi, are integrated as is the fridge, freezer, dishwasher and pull out larder, so this really is a kitchen ready for the housewarming. In the far wall the door leads out to the sturdy and well lit stairs to the paved garden, large enough for sophisticated al fresco dining, with raised beds already in place and which faces west for the afternoon and evening sunshine.

Upstairs is the first of the double bedrooms, quietly looking over the garden which has a super star w.c. next door – useful at night and for guests. The magnificent master bedroom spans the whole of the first floor with the gracious proportions so typical of the Age of Empire. Both a dignified bay window, which reaches almost from the floor to the ceiling and a further tall sash window bathe the room in light and there is a wall of sophisticated storage. Behind you, a door leads into a majestic bathroom with a sunken bath large enough for two as well as a separate shower and sculptural hand basin.

Up beneath a characterful round window, the second floor landing has the spacious family bathroom which is also large enough for a statuesque bath and separate shower, and right at the top of a quirky staircase is a private, third bedroom with under eaves storage and open views over rooftops through the large velux in the western roof.

The lower ground floor has retained its own entrance to the street and is used as a large family and guest room with a double bed which is concealed in the chimney breast – which gives you an idea of the scale of this opened out space! French doors open into a courtyard with steps to the main garden and at the back of this floor is a big utility room with a door out to the patio, beyond which is a fabulous shower room with a sauna, so this could continue very happily as it is or could easily be transformed into a one bedroom apartment.
