Dyke Road Avenue BN3 6QA

With a Mid-Century Modernist revival firmly underway, this exceptional detached house is going to excite those au fait with current architectural and interior design trends. Built during the 1970s, it has clean lines and open living spaces reminiscent of a Miami home, yet the floor to ceiling windows frame very British leafy views. Inside, every generous room has been renovated within the last three years to create a beautifully bright and contemporary family home.

Why you'll like it...

It is detached and resides in one of the city’s most prestigious locations; within minutes of Preston Park Station, and within catchment for some of the city’s best schools. It is immaculate, both inside and out, with gracious room proportions and high ceilings; ideal for both sophisticated entertaining and family time, and the new rear extension opens seamlessly to the landscaped garden. Each of the five bedrooms are sizable doubles, with three en suite and a further family bathroom, plus there is a cinema/games room on the lower ground floor. Expertly designed, the ground floor offers open and versatile living spaces, and there is a separate studio annex with its own street entrance – perfect for guests, a live-in nanny or family members. With a southerly aspect, the house is filled with natural light, and there is space for up to 6 cars on the drive making this ideal for any growing family looking to live in luxury between the coast and the countryside. In brief: Style: Modernist detached family home Bedrooms: 5 double; 3 en suite Bathrooms: 4 Living rooms: 3 very spacious and interlinked Area: 3515 sq. ft. Outside: Landscaped rear garden and south facing roof terrace Location: Dyke Road Avenue Parking: Large hard standing for 6 cars plus motorbike garage Self contained studio apartment Why you’ll like it: Dyke Road Avenue sits on the old border between Brighton and Hove and has long been heralded as one of the most prestigious addresses in the city. Tree lined and flanked by substantial family homes with wide sweeping drives, it certainly holds an air of grandeur, and while many homes were built during the early 20th Century, their large plots and luxurious surroundings has led to an increase in contemporary builds. Originally built during the 1970s, this house is quintessentially Modernist in appearance with simple cubic form and lines to create its striking exterior. Using a variety of external materials creates interesting textures and lines which are then echoed inside, to include split face slate, pale gault brick and slate hung tiles. A border wall and gate provide both privacy and security, and within these there is parking for up to six cars, and a secure garage for motorbikes or storage if need be. With the studio entrance on the left, you enter the main house centrally through double doors in slate grey. These open to a vestibule for storing coats and shoes, and then two oversize Crittall doors lead on to an immediately impressive entrance hall where the scale and beauty of the house becomes apparent. Frome here you also have a line of sight running the depth of the house to the garden, creating a wonderfully welcoming space to come home to each day. Reception rooms: Echoing the clean lines of the exterior, the ground floor is made up of three large reception areas which, while separate, are not encumbered by doors, and are linked instead by wide hallways and partition walls. Solid oak flooring unifies these rooms and to the front of the house, with a sunny southerly orientation, the sitting room is bright and airy with an almost full height window framing the willow tree outside. During the winter, however, a contemporary, two-sided gas fire can be lit to warm the space along with the snug room to the rear. This central room is ideal for cosying up with a movie as it feels tucked away yet remains sociably open to the vast kitchen dining room spanning the rear of the house. There is also a sizable home office on this floor with bespoke beech work desks built in below useful shelving, and a separate WC – a necessity in any shared space. Kitchen, dining and family room: Simply stunning, and perfect for entertaining, this outstanding room spans the width of the house at the rear, and has a wall of tri-folding doors, which open completely to the garden effectively doubling the space during summer. Porcelain tiles gleam below your feet and continue outside for a seamless finish when the doors are open so you can choose to dine inside where you can happily seat ten, or outside for an alfresco lunch or supper. A service area sits close to the table topped with grey quartz and with an integrated wine fridge below it, and this high-quality material has been used again to create worktops and a breakfast bar in the kitchen. Grey gloss units house the dishwasher while the dual ovens, steamer and microwave have been placed in a tower for easy access. Franke sinks and the gas hob have been seamlessly cut-in to the work surfaces, and space has been left for an American fridge freezer (negotiable). A separate utility room is easily accessible, and this has a second exit to the hallway where there is yet more sleek storage for household items ensuring the house remains clutter free. Not only does the light beam in from the garden, but also via five large skylights, and one can only imagine how fantastic this space is when entertaining guests. First floor bedrooms, bathroom and office space: One of the key features you notice upon entry to the house, is the bespoke staircase which winds its way up to the first floor. The steps are made from solid oak, and the balustrades are strengthened glass, so light streams down the double height stairwell. The galleried landing looks out to a wall of pale split-face slate, and on either side, there are two beautiful double bedrooms; both with full-height windows to mirror the reception rooms below. The smaller double is used as a dressing room/guest room with two walls of built-in wardrobes which do not compromise the space in any way, while the larger room has a stylish en suite shower room, plus a further wall of wardrobes to include a deep hidden, eaves storage space. Between the two, there is access to the south facing roof terrace, and along the rear wall are three further double bedrooms looking out over the peaceful garden. Bedroom three has another stylish en suite with a heated rail and sleek storage and the master bedroom has a glamorous walk-in-wardrobe with a variety of storage solutions, plus a recently fitted en suite shower room, lined in marble, with dual sinks and a double width rainfall shower -all of which wouldn't look out of place in a boutique hotel. This luxury finish continues in the family bathroom which has an identical look but has the addition of a spacious bathtub and shower over it. With atmospheric lighting and a stylish, contemporary suite, this room is a real haven. As an added bonus both the en suite and family bathroom have electric under floor heating. Cinema/games room: Forming the entire lower ground floor, this open plan space is ideal for families with older children who like to entertain independently but is versatile enough for a plethora of uses. It is unusually light for a lower ground room as it has a tall window on its southern side, so it could work well as an art or music studio, or alternatively as a gym or further work space. Also on this floor is a walk-in cupboard with fitted shelving, so storage really isn’t an issue in this well-designed house. The garden: Whether you are entertaining friends or enjoying a ‘kick-around’ with the children; this garden is the perfect size. Set mainly to lawn, it is easy to maintain, and even with children’s play equipment space is not compromised. There are two areas for dining: a raised decked area and a paved terrace running alongside the house, and with side access, you can bring muddy boots, paws and bikes into the garden without traipsing them through the immaculate house. Expertly landscaped, the white rendered walls and neat topiary are in keeping with the style of the property and create a delightful outlook from inside. Studio annex: While the studio is linked to the house, the door can be locked to create an independent living space with its own entrance to the front and side of the house. Ideal as a holiday let; as a stylish space for family members, or as a private living space for a live-in nanny, there are clearly defined areas for sleeping, relaxing, dining and cooking, with a sweet kitchenette running along the wall. This does not impose on the space and has a two ring halogen hob, an integrated microwave and a fridge. Nicely separate, the bathroom has a polished finish – as expected in this house and has a shower over the bath. Bear in mind: The hot water for the house is heated entirely by solar power, although there are two further gas boilers to heat the house, including the underfloor heating which runs throughout the rear kitchen extension. Owner’s secret “We have loved living here; raising the children and creating this fantastic space. It is incredible for entertaining – particularly in the summer where we can spill outside to the garden, and the open layout creates a wonderful sense of flow. The location is ideal for families as the local schools are excellent, and they have two parks within walking distance. As commuters you can be at Preston Park Station in a few minutes or be out on the A23 in minutes by car, and with the South Downs and the city centre equidistant from the house, you really do get the best of both worlds."

Agent's thoughts...

This stunning home is beautifully situated in a prestigious area with lots of local green spaces, and the South Downs nearby. The city centre shopping districts and beach are also within easy reach, and this home also offers easy access to Preston Park Station and the A23/A27 which have direct and fast access to the universities, airports and London.
