Property description

***GUIDE PRICE £700,000 - £750,000***


Nestled at the foot of the South Downs on a private lane, this peaceful semi-rural idyll is surrounded by nature yet offers easy access to the centre of Brighton and convenient commuter routes.

Set back from the road with a highly private feel, a modern home has been designed with a great attention to detail with a consistent design scheme. The perfect retreat from the hubbub of the city; oak floors, a lovely flow of natural light and generous proportions combine with a large living room, highly sociable open plan kitchen/dining room, four large double bedrooms, and stylish modern bathrooms to create a great example of a versatile family home.


INSIDE - Instantly generating a superb sense of space, the wide entrance hall with its warmly toned oak floor creates a warm and welcoming first impression, instantly hinting at the impressive sense of space that this home has to offer. Stylish Mexicana doors open onto the easy flowing layout, and underfloor heating keeps things cosy beneath your feet.

Looking out onto the west-facing garden from its full height windows and French doors, the large living room provides ample space to spend time together as a family and a peaceful spot to relax in the afternoon sun. A recessed modern fireplace creates a traditional focal point, while the French doors make it easy to step outside.

Creating a highly sociable feel, the open plan kitchen/dining room is the real heart of this home. The perfect entertaining space; a large dining area is beautifully lit by further full height windows, while its French doors bring the outside in, opening onto the landscaped garden and engendering an easy flowing extension of this versatile room.

Fully fitted with a wealth of sleek cream cabinets, the well-appointed kitchen offers plenty of storage. The etched grooves of its rich blue Silestone countertops flow into an under-mounted sink, while their sparkling finish reminds you of how wonderfully you can see the stars from this semi-rural location.

Equally well-presented, four large double bedrooms offer plenty of family accommodation. Upstairs, a duo of Velux windows in the spacious master suite offers you the chance to admire those clear night skies from the comfort of your own bed. Tasteful recessed wardrobes provide an enviable amount of storage without encroaching on the aesthetics of the room, while the morning sun tumbles in through a large window looking out onto the greenery of the South Downs. Soft lilac hues that add a subtle splash of colour, and its modern en suite shower room adds a touch of luxury.

Across the hallway, two further large double bedrooms both feature more of those leafy vistas with views that reach across the treetops and out to the Downs.

Perfect perhaps for older members of the family, downstairs on the ground floor a fourth double bedroom is hugely versatile and provides ample potential to become a guest suite with doors opening onto the garden. Pastel blue shades add a calm and peaceful feel, while the large adjacent WC and utility area could easily be transformed into an en suite shower room and breakfast area.

Arranged in a refined tile setting the modern suite of the dual aspect family bathroom features a full size bath and additional walk-in shower, its presentation adding to the tranquil feel and consistent design schemes that flow throughout this home.

OUTSIDE - Whether it’s the South Downs or its own beautifully planted landscaped gardens, this Brighton home is surrounded by nature and green open spaces. Step out from the open plan kitchen/dining room and enjoy meals in the summer sun on a large brick paved ‘courtyard-style’ garden that’s bordered by magnificent palms and bamboo.

Hidden from view, a raised patio provides the perfect retreat to relax with the weekend papers.
The French doors of the living room open onto an enclosed lawn that offers a safe space for children to play.

To the front of the property double gates sweep open onto the driveway that leads straight to timber garage and a garden office room that’s ideal for those who work from home or as a teenagers’ den. Raised borders of established Camellias, Photinia, Hebe and Lilacs, to name but a few, lead the way to this beautifully presented home.

IN THE LOCAL AREA - Conveniently situated at the foot of the South Downs, Braypool Lane offers a highly private and peaceful environment with an abundance of green open spaces to explore. Perfect for stretching your legs or taking the dog for a walk, the surrounding countryside provides plenty of opportunities to blow away the cobwebs, and for those who like to practise their swing there are a number of golf clubs close at hand.

Sitting within easy reach of the A27/A23, there’s easy access to convenient commuter routes to London and Gatwick, while London Road takes you down into the hubbub of the city centre and on to the beach.

Wickwoods Country Hotel and Spa is just on the other side of Devils Dyke, and this detached house benefits from easy routes to Glyndebourne Opera House, Virgin Active sports facilities and Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex stadium.

Local schools include Patcham Infants, Junior and High schools, and the A27 provides easy access to Brighton and Sussex university campuses.

Currently this house is in Council Tax band F which was charged at £2,714.15 for 2019/20.
