Why you'll like it
The location's a well-kept secret, 5 minutes from the city but on the edge of the South Downs National Park - a coastal pathway is literally at the end of the cul de sac.
Inside provides sophisticated open plan living with a stylish ground floor for relaxing and entertaining, with oak flooring and under floor heating throughout. Dramatic sea views stream through the glass south wall of this generous space which connects to a glamorous sun terrace, perfect for parties. A streamlined classic, the kitchen's safely set back from the easy flow into the garden at the front of the house. Ready for use, all of the appliances are high spec and integrated for you and include a five ring gas hob, electric oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Two levels of lighting controlled by dimmer switches allow the space to be discreet or sociable, and it remains clutter free as there's a large cloakroom hidden away which also has space - and plumbing - for utility machines.
Outside, the lit terrace steps down into a sunny south facing garden, ideal for al fresco dining with a lawn scented by mature climbers. Child and pet friendly it's secure and private - there's no building directly behind, and it's bordered by a paved pathway to the shed and gate for bikes/ BBQ’s.
Returning inside, the guest suite impresses with a private terrace where you can enjoy glorious views over the yachts of the Marina to open water, the glass balustrade ensuring that the scenic vista can be enjoyed even from bed. The decoration is calm, the wardrobes are fitted, and the en suite shower room is chic. At the front of the house, the second double bedroom is both spacious and serene and next door, the peaceful single bedroom is currently used as a comfortable study. Central to this floor, the family bathroom has all you need including a contemporary dual shower head system above the bath, a lit cabinet and a heated rail for towels.
Quiet and with restful open views of Brighton Marina's safe harbour, the master suite opens to a south facing roof terrace with panoramic coastal views. Wardrobes provide ample storage and the large en suite boasts both a bath and separate, walk in shower.
The location’s quiet but convenient for professionals who work in Brighton or who need to commute.
"The house is ideal for entertaining, as well as being a comfortable family home. The sea views are amazing all year round - in storms and sunny weather alike. It is very special to be so close to the sea, the South Downs and the City Centre."
