The creative vision behind this striking, newly built development, was to build homes which would balance home comforts with a luxury lifestyle, while conforming to the highest eco specifications. This brief has certainly been achieved, and this four-bedroom, detached house is immediately impressive, and has a contemporary interior created with fine quality materials and workmanship. It is one of four homes, tucked away down a long shingle drive, peacefully positioned between Lewes Road and the Racecourse, so while the area skirts the rolling hills of the South Downs, you are still well-connected to the city.
Approached down a long shingle drive, these homes already have their own air of exclusivity, and feel peacefully tucked away. They have been cleverly designed so they are not overlooked at all, and this house is one of a pair of detached homes with a sunny east/west orientation.
They are attractive on the approach with a contemporary take on traditional style homes, using red brick, slate roofs and box bay windows, and as you sweep in from the drive, you park up next to raised planters; scented with lavender and pretty florals.
Upon entry, you are welcomed into a wide entrance hall where there is storage for your coats, and a spacious downstairs WC is to the right. Directly ahead, the ground floor is predominantly open plan, and the quality laminate flooring has the look and feel of timber underfoot. This is an incredibly spacious room which is beautifully lit via almost full height windows on all sides, making it the ideal room for both family time and sophisticated entertaining. Designer wallpaper panels give shape, texture and style to the walls, and there are clearly defined areas for comfortable seating, formal dining and cooking. During the warmer months, the sliding doors link the room with outside, greatly increasing your entertaining space, and for small children, the lawn is enclosed, so entirely safe for playtime too.
Tucked into the corner, the kitchen units are sleek in white gloss, and these have been topped with solid oak. The fridge, freezer, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob have been integrated, leaving space and plumbing for a washing machine.
Outside, the garden wraps around the property with areas of lush lawn, plus a paved area for dining alfresco, and flower beds have been built into the oak, sleeper walls. You are completely private here, hidden from all your neighbours, yet the sun can find you at all times of the day.
Upstairs, the ceilings are wonderfully high and vaulted in places, which adds to the bright and airy feeling in the bedrooms. These have plush, mid-grey carpet for added warmth and comfort, and from their elevated position, they have far reaching views across the city, below vast and ever-changing skies. There are three double bedrooms of almost equal size, although the master enjoys an en suite shower room, and the fourth bedroom is a smaller double and would be perfect for either a child or as a tranquil home office perhaps. The three standard rooms share use of a superbly stylish bathroom where Moroccan style tiles add interest to the modern white bath suite, which has a rainfall shower above it to truly revive you in the morning.
This stunning home is beautifully situated in a peaceful, community centred area with lots of local green spaces, and the South Downs nearby. The city centre shopping districts and beach are also within easy reach, and this home also offers easy access to the A23/A27 which have direct and fast access to the airports and London.
