In More Detail
The crisp white walls, original wood floors and generous proportions which flow throughout this deceptively spacious mid-1800s home enhance its cottage character and create an instantly calm and welcoming feel.
A highly versatile garden level is the real heart of this peaceful home. Adding a contemporary twist to its Victorian heritage, a poured concrete floor emphasises the amount of space on offer, while a tiled fireplace and elegant recessed cabinets create traditional focal points. Generously proportioned for entertaining and dining, French doors open onto the decked courtyard garden, perfectly extending this sociable space still further and letting you listen to the sound of the waves on the shore from the comfort of your own home.
This beautifully calm and relaxing space opens onto a stylish dual aspect kitchen where modern Shaker-style cabinets provide plenty of storage and sleek countertops sit beneath refined grey splashbacks. Well-appointed with an integrated oven and Bosch hob, there's ample room for additional freestanding appliances.
The original wood floor of the hallway flows into a well-sized second reception room where natural light bounces off the crisp white walls. Perfectly proportioned, wide chimney breast alcoves add to the sense of space and an open fireplace allows you to curl up in front of a real fire.
Adding plenty of versatility, there is plenty of dual space potential for the adjacent bedroom to become to an additional dining room or work from home space.
Continuing the fantastic feeling of space, further dual aspect windows allow ample natural light to tumble into a large family bathroom where a wood panelled bath sits above a dot patterned rubber floor. A wall-hung basin adds a modern finishing touch, while a deep full-height cupboard provides a wealth of storage without encroaching on the ample floor space.
Beautifully lit the master bedroom offers oblique sea views from its classic bay window. The white floorboards add to the sense of space providing plenty of room for freestanding furniture while an elegant wardrobe nestles within a deep chimney breast alcove.
Equally well-presented, a second double bedroom looks out over the pretty rear garden, while the generous loft space above offers sea views from its Velux windows and plenty of potential to extend this spacious home even further (subject to the correct consents).
A walled east-facing courtyard garden benefits from ample room for outdoor seating and entertaining. Easy to maintain, this decked outdoor space allows you to listen to the sounds of the sea while you relax in the sun, while a side gate allows convenient access down to the seafront for barbeques on the beach and Italian ice creams at the nearby Marrocco's.
When I first saw this house over seven years ago I loved the fact that it was so deceptively spacious, old and unique.
It's been such a great home and I've loved living here. The street and the surrounding area has a nice sense of community and I'm happy that I'm not moving too far away from it. Even though I'm next to the seafront the road is so quiet and I mainly always find somewhere to park right outside.
My favourite place to spend time when I'm at home is on the lower ground floor. For me it's the main living area, it's such a quiet and peaceful space. In the summer it's lovely to sit on the patio in the evenings and listen to the sea.
Living in Sussex Road means that you don't need to cross a main road to get to the sea, which is very rare and I love the fact that you can walk right along the seafront to go into the centre of Brighton.
The house was built in 1840 and I love the feeling of living in a house that old. It's quite special and you can't replicate that.
I'll miss the lovely parade of shops around the corner - from the health food shop to the jewel in the crown Sugardough. I'll also miss being able to walk to The Neptune pub without having to put a coat on!
