In More Detail

Arranged over two floors and presented to an impressively high standard, a soft heritage colour scheme features throughout each room highlighting the lovely sense of height and space.

Ground Floor

The easy flowing layout of the ground floor features two separate reception rooms instantly creating a highly versatile family home. Beautifully lit by a square sash bay window, a distinguished period fireplace creates an instant focal point in the first, while elegant period cornicing borders the tall ceiling. The soft grey colour scheme is echoed in the second reception room where a further fireplace adds to the charm and character of this 1920s home and tasteful cabinets and shelving nestle within a deep chimney breast alcove.

The adjacent open plan space is the real heart of this home with its dual aspect sunroom and curved archways. Well-appointed with a variety of integrated appliances, elegant cabinets provide plenty of storage, while solid wood countertops offer a classic finishing touch. The wealth of floor space easily accommodates a family sized dining area where a tall column radiator lends a contemporary yet sympathetic twist to this period home. The traditional terracotta tiled floor flows through the curved archways onto a dual aspect sunroom, perfectly extending this sociable and versatile space still further.

Conveniently placed, a downstairs shower room is perfect for cooling down in after spending time relaxing in the landscaped garden.

First Floor

The sense of space continues on the first floor where three bedrooms offer ideal family accommodation. Echoing the proportions of the living room, a sash bay window allows natural light to tumble into the master bedroom highlighting the period fireplace and recessed fitted wardrobes. Soft grey carpets add a calm and peaceful feel, while French lilac walls add a subtle splash of colour. Adding a touch of luxury, the en suite shower room offers a sleek walk-in shower arranged in a stylish modern tile setting.

Creating plenty of dual space potential, the lovely flow of natural light continues in two further double bedrooms, and whilst one features a picture perfect fireplace, both benefit from fitted wardrobes.

Creating an impressive consistent design scheme and lovely attention to detail, the well-proportioned family bathroom matches the clean line design of the en suite with its highly contemporary white suite.


Accessed from the ground floor hallway, a large cellar with limited head height offers an impressive amount of discreet storage space. Stretching across almost the entire footprint of this family home this expansive additional space is already wired with power and lighting and has plumbing for a washing machine. Offering plenty of potential for development, this commodious cellar features four large undercrofts.


This family sized home is set back from the quiet tree-lined road behind a well-kept landscaped garden bordered with eye-catching red roses and tall firs. A garage and wide private driveway combine to offer plenty of private off-road parking for several vehicles.

To the rear of this Brighton home, the stunning array of mature flowers and plants encompassing an expansive and well-kept lawn creates an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. Stepping out from the sunroom, the tiers of a wide paved terrace stretch across the full width of this family home providing ample room for relaxing in the sun or entertaining family and friends.

Offering a slice of country living and a classic English garden feel, this magnificent outdoor space is bordered with the rich greenery of Aucuba, Mahonia and bamboo to name but a few, while the large lawn provides plenty of safe space for children to play.

The idyllic tranquil space comes complete with a secluded patio allowing you to chase the sun to your heart's content.
