Bright and quiet, this four bedroom Victorian haven has elegantly proportioned rooms and a sunny west garden, raised to catch the sun. The address in the exclusive West Hill conservation area is exclusive and it’s ideal for commuters as Brighton Station is a 4 minute stroll. Sensitively modernised to create a sociable home, there are stunning views from the top and it’s perfectly positioned on a one way street between the fashionable North Laine and relaxed café culture of the 7 Dials- and you can walk to the beach, parks and popular schools.
** Guide Price £900,000 - £950,000 **
In a surprisingly quiet location known as the golden triangle as you can walk to the sea, the bohemian North Laine and Brighton Station, this smart Victorian terrace is set back from a one way street with permit parking. Looking traditional from the outside with bay windows and tiled path, you step up past a front garden scented by rosemary and lavender to a tranquil home with an inviting hallway and ground floor ideal for a contemporary, coastal city lifestyle.
The reception, kitchen/diner and garden
Sun filled, the elegant living room has burnished boards underfoot, a high ceiling and a handsome, original fireplace. Original cupboards evoke the age of the house and keep the space uncluttered, and once two rooms, there’s plenty of space in which to relax or to enjoy with friends. Behind you, glazed double doors keep your options open and reveal a fabulous kitchen diner where light streams through three skylights in the vaulted roof – so guests can dine beneath the stars, too. A classic pairing of cream units with solid, family friendly wood working surfaces won’t date and the fabulous multi fuel Rangemaster could stay, subject to circumstance and negotiation, as could the tall fridge freezer. Plumbing’s already in place for a washing machine and there’s a freshly plastered store room with lighting and potential at the back of the room.
A door to the garden stairs makes al fresco entertaining easy and the garden, west facing, is open to the south. Charming flint walls ensure privacy and with gardens at the back and to each side, it’s a quiet oasis in the heart of the city with a paved seating area and decked area for dining.
Two double bedrooms and bathroom
On the first floor landing the spacious bathroom is light and airy and has both a shower attachment and a power shower above the bath, so water pressure shouldn’t be an issue. There’s also a separate cloakroom with natural light next door, which is useful in a busy household. The first of the double bedrooms looks over gardens and has a period fireplace and fitted wardrobes, whilst the second spacious bedroom has plenty of character of its own with a marble fireplace and generous bay facing east for the morning sunshine.
The master and double bedroom/dressing room top floor
Quiet and with leafy views, the top double bedroom is ready for your move with a fitted wardrobe and period fireplace. At the front of the house, the magnificent master bedroom spans the full width of the building and the glorious east window brings in breathtaking views over this intercontinental city to the sparkling sea.
Quiet, large houses with four storeys and west facing garden are hard to find in this central, historic location.
