IN MORE DETAIL -
Looking out onto the flint faced tower of the historic 14th century St Nicholas' Church and on towards the sea, this versatile home is arranged over four storeys that include a large dual aspect informal loft room and an abundance of storage space.
GROUND FLOOR -
Beautifully lit by a wide sash window that offers views across the green church grounds, the welcoming living room instantly generates a superb sense of the original character of this Georgian home. The heritage colour scheme adds to the peaceful feel, while the warm tones of the wood floor create the perfect backdrop to the open fireplace with its rustic log burner.
Along the hallway a newly fitted bathroom continues the elegant sense of style with its grey wood panelling, P-shaped bath and period-style suite. An exposed brick wall and featured patterned sash window add eye-catching features, while crisp white metro tiles create a contemporary yet sympathetic twist.
Natural light tumbles into a generously proportioned dual aspect kitchen/dining/sitting room that offers a highly versatile and sociable feel. Slate tiles with their underfloor heating stretch out across the room adding to the sense of space, while a log burner nestles within the sitting room chimney breast creating a traditional focal point and heating the whole house.
With ample room to relax and entertain, this stylish open plan space is effortlessly delineated by a wealth of Shaker-style cabinets and solid wood countertops that wraparound the kitchen area housing an array of integrated appliances and a large butler sink. Blue tiled splashbacks add a classic dash of colour, while French doors offer access to the idyllic walled garden.
The original wood floors continue in two double bedrooms where period-style fireplaces add to the charm and character that flows throughout this central Brighton home. Equally well-presented and each benefiting from ample storage, the master bedroom offers views across the rooftops and onto the sea whilst the other looks out onto the pretty gardens below.
Discreetly accessed from the second bedroom, a large informal loft room creates versatility as a teenage den and plenty of dual space potential for those who work from home. Dual aspect Velux windows offer further panoramic views and allow the lovely flow of natural light to continue, while eaves cupboards provide additional storage without encroaching on the ample floor space.
Accessed from the kitchen and the ground floor hallway, an idyllic walled garden creates a peaceful and private retreat to sit and relax in the sun with the weekend papers or enjoy outdoor meals with family and friends. Easy to maintain, there's ample space for potted plants, while a tall established tree offers dappled shade.
SELLER INSIGHT -
When I first saw this house in 2007 it was the beautiful outlook of the church and its grounds along with the fact that it was so quiet and peaceful that instantly made me feel that this was going to be my home.
The location is perfect, I'm close to the sea and the station. You feel as if you're in the countryside yet at the same time you can walk to Marks & Spencer.
It's such a pretty and quirky house that's full of character, and because I'm a sociable cook I love the open plan kitchen/sitting room. It's really good to have friends here and be able to talk to them while you're cooking rather than being shut away in a separate kitchen.
I'll really miss how versatile the whole layout is and being so close to the town centre. It's been lovely to be able to just pop down to the shops and walk to the station.

Surrounded by green open spaces, Church Street is only moments away from all that Brighton and Hove has to offer whilst still enjoying a village-like feel.

For those needing to commute, Brighton train station with its convenient mainline links to London and Gatwick is approximately under a quarter of a mile away and there are regular bus services nearby running across the city and out up to Devil's Dyke.
