Brownleaf Road

£400,000 - £425,000 | Chain Free | Surrounded by lush greenery on the border of the South Downs National Park, this semi-detached house enjoys exceptional views over the local landscape to the sea. It sits in the ever-popular area of Woodingdean which sweeps down to the historic village of Rottingdean, and while it is incredibly peaceful here, it remains well-connected to the city. A much-loved family home since 1962, the property has been well maintained, including recent work to the exterior, and its rooms are perfectly spacious. These include four double bedrooms and two generous receptions; one of which leads out to the glorious garden. Facing south-east, this receives a huge amount of sunshine at all times of day, and it is filled with an abundance of well-established shrubs and florals. There remains plenty of scope, however, to add considerable value to the property through modernisation and extension which will appeal to developers and families alike. A single, detached garage with a new roof offers ample space for storage or a full-size cars, with space for two more on the drive, and for those who commute, you can access the A27/A23 in minutes.

Why you'll like it...

Style: semi-detached Mid-Century house Bedrooms: 4 double Bathrooms: 2 Living rooms: 2-3 spacious including eat-in kitchen Area: 1286 sq.ft Outside: large south-east facing garden with green house Parking: detached garage and private driveway Why you’ll like it: Perfectly positioned between the city, the countryside and the coast, it is no wonder the suburb of Woodingdean has retained its popularity over the years. This house sits to the south and is set well back from the road by a pretty front garden and a neat brick driveway leading to the garage. Attractive on the approach, the house has been well-maintained, and the south elevation has recently been repointed so it is immaculate. Accessed from the side of the property, the main door opens to a generous entrance hall where an open staircase rises to the first floor. First to the right is the fourth bedroom which had previously been used as a study due to its tranquil views but has room for a small double bed and freestanding pieces of bedroom furniture. There is also easy access to the ground floor shower room which has a roomy cubicle and a classic décor – and while it is in fine fettle, it would be a great space for modernising. Across the hall there are two bright and airy reception rooms. These rooms could be opened to create one very spacious and sociable room, or the dining room could be opened to the kitchen which would be perfect for social occasions and for family time. They are all generous rooms in their own right, however, and having separate reception rooms is often preferable for families who like to have their own space on occasion. Within the living room, the south-easterly wall is almost entirely glazed with sliding doors leading out to the sun terrace. During summer this becomes an extension of the home, while during the cooler seasons, the garden forms a delightful backdrop to the room. There is also a gas fire with a brick surround to warm the space during this time. As the neighbours have shown, it would also be possible to extend the house further into the garden – possibly moving the kitchen diner to this side while creating a fifth bedroom in its place? Certainly food for thought. Within the current kitchen, there is ample space for a kitchen table for less formal occasions, and all appliances are freestanding. These include a cooker, tall fridge freezer, a washing machine and a dishwasher – all of which are fairly new and can stay. Outside, the garden is magical and once you have stepped into it, you don’t feel overlooked in the slightest. A treat for the senses; the sky is filled with birdsong and the mature borders are scented. During spring and summer, the flowers come into bloom adding colour throughout the space, and the lawn stretches far back allowing plenty of space for children to play. A large green house is also in place for those with green fingers, and should you wish to add an outdoor office or summer house, the space would not be compromised. Upstairs, there are three very large double bedrooms and the second bathroom. While this is dated with an avocado suite, it is clearly a great size for families, and again, it would add value to the property with some modernisation. There are two bedrooms which look out over the treetops nearby to the sea which is a wonderful view to wake to, yet all three are peaceful spaces with double glazed windows and carpets. Their size allows for king size beds in each, alongside several pieces of bedroom furniture, although there is some built-in storage which maximises the floor space further still. Agent’s thoughts: This house is brimming with potential, and it has many winning qualities already. The rooms are fantastic sizes; the garden is magical; and the views to the rear are some of the best in the area. This is sure to be a popular choice for many. Owner’s secret: “This was our family home since 1962, so it holds many happy memories for us and will be a wrench to part with. There is a real sense of community within these streets and both the city and the beach easy to access. It will be heart-warming to know that a new family will come in here, breathe new life into the space, and hopefully enjoy it for many more years to come.” Where it is: Shops: Local 5 min walk, city centre a 10 min drive Train Station: Brighton 20 min bus ride Seafront or Park: Happy Valley 1 min walk, Seafront is a 10-15 min walk Closest Schools: Primary: Woodingdean Primary, Rudyard Kipling Primary Secondary: Longhill High School, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College, Roedean Quietly situated, this spacious home is brilliantly located in the popular Woodingdean area, with its great schools, parks, and shops, so should appeal to all generations! The vibrant City of Brighton and Hove and seafront are within easy reach, plus the A23/A27 are easily accessible for those needing fast links to the universities, airports or London.
