Property description

GUIDE PRICE: £450,000---£475,000.
For developers or anyone with skills in construction, this house is a renovation dream. It sits in the heart of Port Hall, close to Seven Dials and Brighton Station, so it is a hugely desirable location where the potential to add value is high. It is currently a three-bedroom, Victorian terraced house which had been a much-loved family home for three generations. While the central heating system is just 3 years old, the rest of the house requires complete renovation to bring it shining into the 21st Century. Many original features remain, and the potential is there to extend into the roof space to create a fourth bedroom and to bring the bathroom upstairs while extending the kitchen. With an east to west orientation, it is filled with natural light, and sitting in a highly-favoured school catchment, it will suit families, commuters and investors alike.

Style: terraced Victorian house

Bedrooms: 3 double

Living rooms: 1 through living dining room

Outside: west facing rear garden

Area: 1037 sq.ft.

Location: Port Hall

Parking: Permit Zone

Why you’ll like it:

The terraced houses of Port Hall have been sought after for many a year for their attractive architectural features and their proximity to Brighton Station, Seven Dials and several highly-acclaimed schools. There is a palpable sense of community here with lots of families and professionals, and you are just far enough away from the city centre to feel peaceful, yet close enough to access it on foot.

Tucked away on a quiet street, and requiring complete renovation, this house offers a fantastic opportunity for development in the area. While structurally sound, the internal decoration requires modernisation, but the room proportions, wide bay windows and original features provide the ideal base for what always was, and could still be, a beautiful family home.

Elevated above the street and accessed up a few stone steps, the façade is in good condition with its architectural features intact and a simply paved front garden which would also be ripe for transformation. You enter into a long entrance hall and the layout is as you’d expect from these houses with the reception rooms to the left, and the kitchen at the far end. This house also has the bathroom on this level with a spacious double width shower, but this could easily be converted with the space available upstairs.

The through living and dining room was once two rooms but has now been opened up to take advantage of the east to west orientation. There is ample space for comfortable seating as well as formal dining, and while there is an electric fire in situ, the chimney breasts remain in place, so with some professional investigation, there should be no reason why traditional fireplaces could not be reinstated.

Forming two rooms to the rear of the house, the kitchen and bathroom could be converted into a kitchen dining space if need be. A door from here leads out to the city garden which is raised up to catch the sunshine. It has been overgrown for some time, but the potential is there to landscape, creating a seating area and beds for planting. It does not feel overlooked at all and is wonderfully quiet for somewhere so central.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms alongside a separate WC. It would be an idea to incorporate a bathroom into the back bedroom which would create a single bedroom with two further doubles on this floor. They have original built in wardrobes and the largest room spans the front of the house on the first floor with charming views across the Preston Valley. The loft is yet to be developed which could add a fourth bedroom and another bathroom if need be – all subject to the necessary planning consents of course.

Agent’s thoughts:

This is a very rare opportunity to find a house in this highly sought-after location, holding such potential for modernisation to add value. It will be certain to attract the attentions of many.

Owners’ secret:

“This house has been in our family for 80 years, so it holds many memories for us. The area has always been friendly with a sense of community due to the schools, and it is so convenient as you can walk into the city or to the beach from here. It will be wonderful to see someone breathe new life into the house and start making new memories for many years to come.”
