Why you’ll like it:

Set within the leafy environs of Surrenden; just a few minutes from both Preston Park and its commuter station, this smart and spacious, one-bedroom garden flat is a real gem. This area is characterised by its Victorian architecture, surrounded by mature trees, but it also has fantastic connections both in and out of the city.

It has more recently been used as a popular holiday let, so it is set up with two sleeping areas, but the room to the front would traditionally be used as a living and dining room. The décor is fresh in pale dove-grey with the woodwork picked out in white which complements the wood laminate floors perfectly. Filling the room with natural light; the wide box bay also provides the perfect spot for a dining table and chairs, leaving ample space elsewhere for comfortable sofas, so you can cosy up by the contemporary fire during winter.

Next door, the bedroom almost mirrors the living room in size and shape, but has a sunny southerly aspect with views over the patio to the garden. This room has been carpeted for added warmth and comfort, and with double glazed windows, you can always ensure a restful night’s sleep.

A few steps lead down into the kitchen from the hallway, passing a vast under stairs storage cupboard for all your household items, so the flat can remain clutter free. This is a modern room with cashmere Shaker style units topped with solid oak surfaces, and into these, the gas hob and sink have been seamlessly cut-in. The fridge freezer has also been integrated, leaving space for a washing machine, and a door leads out to the garden.

South facing, this is a real suntrap during the warmer seasons, yet there is a large area of patio in the side return should you need some shade come the evening time. There is a sweet area of lawn with a raised sleeper bed for planting flowers, and even though you are in a terrace, it doesn’t feel too overlooked at the back due to the neighbouring street’s long gardens and trees to screen them.

Finally, the bathroom is at the far end of the flat, accessible via the kitchen, and has also been modernised with a glossy, quality finish. The tall shower cubicle has a reviving rainfall showerhead, and there is plenty of storage for your toiletries, plus a tall heated rail is in place for your towels.

Bear in Mind:

There are several popular pubs (The Park View, Preston Park Tavern, The Cleaveland, The Crown and Anchor) within easy walking distance, or the number 5 bus stops at the bottom of the road to take you into the city for a night’s entertainment.

Owner’s secret:

‘This is such a great location and there is a real sense of community here. For commuters, you can walk to the mainline station in just 5 minutes, and for entertainment there are so many friendly pubs nearby, we rarely venture further into the city!’

Where it is:

Shops: Local 2 min walk, North Laines 20 min walk

Station: Preston Park 5 min walk

Seafront or Park: Preston Park 3 min walk, seafront 10 min bus ride

Closest Schools:

Primary: Balfour Primary School

Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College

This is a lovely apartment in a popular location which is well served for shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23 and stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
