Why you’ll like it:
Seven Dials and Porthall have long been heralded the most desirable locations for families to live in the city. The area is hugely attractive architecturally; you are within minutes of the city, the coast and the countryside; and the local schools and parks are exemplary.
This house was built in 2009, yet it sits comfortably within its Edwardian surroundings. Like its neighbours, it is a substantial house with a tall gabled roof and Sussex hung tiles on its red-brick and rendered façade. It is set back from the road behind glossy railings and neat paving for pots and plants, and you are welcomed in to a generous hallway where there is space to hang coats and a useful WC has been tucked in below the stairs.
First to the left, double oak doors open to the beautifully bright and spacious family living room, and where the true scale of the house becomes apparent. Your line of sight takes you through the depth of the house to the conservatory dining room and on to the walled garden at the far end. These rooms are well-proportioned and with ample glazing on both sides the natural light is able to stream right through. Wooden floors and a fresh palette on the walls create a clean and polished finish to suit modern furnishings, and while it is a sizable room, it also feels homely during winter when double doors between the rooms can be closed and the family can cosy up on sumptuous sofas for a movie night. This also creates two generous reception areas which is ideal for families with older children who like to entertain independently on occasion.
Perfect for use all year round, the conservatory room is a solid extension with heating and is fully insulated against the cold. As a dining space you can easily access the kitchen from here, and when entertaining, the whole floor opens up creating a lovely sense of flow. This works particularly well during summer when the entire rear wall opens to the garden via bi-folding doors, and the outside becomes a delightful extension of the home. It feels wonderfully private for a residential area, and there is ample space for dining alfresco and for children to play.
With a glossy, contemporary finish, the kitchen has been well designed with plenty of storage at both wall and base levels. These have been paired with black granite worktops into which the sink and induction hob have been cut-in, and the washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and oven have been integrated.
Upstairs on the first floor, there are two very generous double bedrooms almost mirroring each other in size and shape. The wooden floors continue up here, as does the immaculate and restful décor, and while the master bedroom has a chic en suite shower room, there is a family bathroom conveniently positioned next door to bedroom two. This has natural stone tiling and a double end bath with a shower over it for when time if of the essence.
A further flight takes you to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms; both with stylish en suite shower rooms and gorgeous views from their elevated position within the house.
Bear in mind:
Detached homes of this calibre do not come on the market very often in this area – so close to Seven Dials, Brighton Station and the city centre.
“The location speaks for itself here, but the house is fantastic for entertaining as there is so much space, and the family never feels on top of one another as you can really spread out. While Seven Dials is amazing, you also have Preston Circus down the road where there are some great gastro pubs and the renowned Duke of York Cinema, and you can walk into the city centre in 10-minutes for a big night out – perfect!”
