Tastefully renovated and immaculate throughout, this four double-bedroom family home sits in a quiet residential street on the Brighton and Hove border, just minutes from Hove Park and Seven Dials. It has been completely refurbished in recent years to include a new loft extension and an open plan living space which provide versatile accommodation for families of all sizes. Originally built in 1929, its period features have been blended with a contemporary colour palette and modern design, and even below the stylish aesthetic, the workings of the house have been renewed. With generous room proportions and a sunny, southerly aspect to the rear, the house is filled with natural light and the garden is a lovely extension of the home. The local primary schools are Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ and are just a few minutes away on foot, as are some of the best secondary schools and sixth form colleges in the city. Both Brighton Station and Preston Park Station are within easy walking distance as are many local amenities, so this house is sure to attract many.

Why you’ll like it
With Seven Dials on your doorstep, three commuter stations within walking distance and excellent schools within catchment; it is no wonder the roads along the Brighton and Hove border have retained their popularity over the years.
This house is particularly attractive and is ready to move into, having been renovated to a very high standard within the last six-years. During this time, it has had a full rewire plus new heating and plumbing, and a master bedroom suite has been added within the loft. It is clear the current owners have a refined eye for interiors and have maintained the house beautifully in this time. Fresh white tones have been used through the ground floor which only serves to brighten the space further, and the open layout allows natural light to stream right through the property.
Attractive on the approach, you pass a floral front garden to the porch which is a useful space for buggies and shoes to keep them out of the entrance hall. This is wide and welcoming with a line of sight right through the house to the garden beyond. Solid wood floorboards in white flow along the hallway, past deep under stairs storage and into the kitchen, dining room and living room beyond. The wall between the hallway, kitchen and the dining area was removed to create an open plan feel so the entire ground floor flows perfectly for families or when entertaining. There is ample space for formal dining and relaxed seating where an open fire warms the space beautifully during winter, then in summer, patio doors open to link the room with the garden.
The kitchen has been well designed with plenty of solid oak workspace and white Shaker units at both wall and base levels. Alongside the gas range cooker, the washing machine, dishwasher, under counter freezer and two under counter fridges have been integrated, and an arm of the kitchen forms a breakfast bar to seat two for less formal occasions. Almost new, the combination boiler was fitted only last year, and has a Nest thermostat so you can control the heating remotely from your phone!
Outside, the garden has been landscaped and is nicely secure so children can play in safety on the lawn. A treat for the senses, there are climbing flowers and herbs to add colour and scent, while a neighbouring tree provides some welcome dappled shade during high season, and with a patio and plenty of space, it is ideal for barbecues and dining alfresco.
Upstairs there are three large double bedrooms on the first floor; all immaculately presented with soft carpet underfoot and one with built-in wardrobes. They all have space for double beds and several pieces of bedroom furniture, and the bathroom is easy to access across the hall. This is on trend with metro brick tiles and a contemporary white bath suite, and there is a shower over the bath with wall mounted taps and a hand-held attachment – perfect for bathing little ones.
A further flight of stairs takes you to the master bedroom suite which was added just two-year’s ago. From here the views really come into their own as being elevated on a hill, you gain far reaching views along the coast to Worthing Pier in the west, while from the large Velux windows to the front, you can see the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, reminding you just how perfectly positioned Brighton is between the countryside and the coast.
The high-quality finish continues up here, and the en suite shower room has both a bathtub and a rainfall shower with a fixed glass door. There is a walk-in wardrobe and behind a second set of wardrobe doors, a secret office space is revealed. French doors open to a Juliet balcony so you can allow the cool breeze in during summer, then you can tuck yourself away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life to truly relax.
Beautifully presented from top to bottom, and perfectly positioned for families – this is a really lovely home which is ready to move straight into.
‘This has been a fantastic house for both family time and entertaining, and the garden is a real treat in the summer. The location is incredibly convenient with Seven Dials down the road and Preston Park Station just 10 minutes away for the commute - you barely need a car. We often walk to the beach and you have Hove Park, Dyke Road Park and Preston Park nearby which has been a real blessing with young children. The neighbours are fantastic, and there’s a real community feel so won’t be moving far.”
