Why you'll like it...

Style: Victorian semi-detached townhouse with a self-contained studio attached Bedrooms: 5 double; 2 en suite Living Rooms: 2 very spacious Area: 2826 sq.ft. 262.5 sq.m. Outside: West facing rear garden with decked terrace Location: Sackville Gardens CA Parking: Brick driveway and residents permit zone R Why you’ll like it The stunning houses in Westbourne Villas and the surrounding streets have been highly sought after for many years now, so it is hard to believe that just over 100 years ago this land was used for allotments! As Hove became ever more fashionable, it needed to expand, so these prominent houses were built, with beautiful architectural detailing and grandeur. You approach up the original tiled path, past a manicured front garden complete with an olive tree, to the glossy black, panelled front door. Once inside you are welcomed by high ceilings with the original cornicing, finials and internal doors intact, but which have been modernised with Porsche door handles. The windows are timber framed double glazing throughout, and the palette is soothing in natural shades. New wool carpets in grey cover the floor in the reception rooms as well as on the stairs and landing hallways, and the walls are a lighter shade in dove grey with the woodwork picked out in white. The generous living room and dining room are first on the right, and have breathtakingly high ceilings. These are opulent yet homely rooms which can also be divided in two by wide timber doors for more intimate times. Each room has a grand marble fireplace; one with a coal effect gas fire, and they are subtly lit by LED spots. From the formal dining area, a set of frosted double doors open out to the kitchen extension which can also be reached from the hall. This is the heart of the home; a place for family as well as entertaining. It is a Leicht kitchen, with a huge central island with units below as well as a breakfast bar so you can be really social in here and chat to your guests or watch over the children as you cook. The units are plenty in white with cylindrical glass handles and are topped with dark granite. The Miele appliances are integrated and there is space for a free standing American fridge freezer. The room was extended into the side return where there is a seating area or tv snug with underfloor heating and remote control blinds on the angled glazed roof, and there is further space to the rear of the room for a kitchen table. This whole area can be opened out to the garden through tri-folding doors which is such a delight in the summer, and is a very secure garden too if you have small children or pets. Climbing the stairs to the first floor you come firstly to the utility room and family bathroom. These have been uniquely divided by a curved wall adorned with Murano mosaic tiles, and in the utility side there is space for a washer and dryer, plus a small handbasin and space to hang delicates. The bathroom is a showstopper with a shaped wet room, and in here the tiling is in subtle shades of iridescent white and grey on both the floor and the walls. The fixtures are all Hansgrohe – and this goes for all the bathrooms in the house, and there is a corner bath for luxurious bathing. There are two more bedrooms on this floor, both beautifully spacious with the larger front bedroom benefitting from a designer en-suite; masculine in decor with dramatic dark porcelain tiles from floor to ceiling, and another wet room. A further flight of stairs takes you to the second floor which mirrors the floor below, yet the room at the rear is a sweet guest double, and the en-suite bathroom up here is in glamourous limestone with a jacuzzi bath. Bear in Mind: The annex studio has a slick finish like the main house, and has it’s own entrance, but if you were after even more space, the loft is still undeveloped and could easily house two more bedrooms and a bathroom, subject to planning consents of course.

Owner's secret...

‘This has been a fabulous family home, and we have had some really memorable parties here. Having the beach on your doorstep is a real treat too.’

Agent's thoughts...

This is a stunning family home with a self-contained studio attached in a popular location which is well served for shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23 and stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
