North Gardens BN1

Chic and sociable, this pretty two bedroom cottage is easy to live in and ideal for weekends as it’s in a fashionable location on the edge of the North Laine. Homes on this quiet street don’t appear on the market often, and this one is far bigger than it looks on the outside, ranging over three levels with bright, spacious rooms on the ground and lower floor for entertaining, and comfortable bedrooms upstairs, all decorated to an exceptionally high standard.

Why you'll like it...

This is a sought-after address at the heart of the city but in a quiet, friendly one- way street. About mid terrace, you’re unusually protected from most of any noise as this house backs on to a pedestrian twittern. Outside, this house looks a neat two storeys, but inside, it ranges over three deep floors, and there’s an attic as well. A practical lobby with hooks for coats opens into an inviting living room, which has been partially opened to the stairs and back window, gaining space as well as light. The ceiling is high, mahogany flooring is underfoot and the large front window brings in the afternoon sunshine. Pretty perfect so far, the icing on the cake is the stylish designer paper on a feature wall! Next door, central to the house, an unusually glamorous bathroom allows you to bathe in glory beneath a trompe l’oeil sky, the slipper bath and traditional shower attachment in keeping with the age of the building. With intercontinental terracotta tiles and natural light, this room is also large enough for a separate, twin headed shower and a long hand basin with deep sills which rests on cabinets, and there are even twin towel rails, heated for comfort. Downstairs, the owners’ light touch continues in the stylish kitchen diner with windows at each end and a door opening to the garden which becomes another ‘room’ of the house during parties. The dining area has plenty of space to play with, and built in seating with wood panelling adds to the seaside theme, introduced by a fabulous wall mural celebrating the nearby Brighton Pier. A large cupboard keeps the space uncluttered and thoughtfully designed, there are extra units including an integrated wine fridge within leaning distance of the table…..The kitchen’s tucked away in its own space, so although sociable, it doesn’t dominate the whole of the entertaining space. Streamlined white units have clever storage solutions and ample wooden work surfaces, and the black floor completes the ageless appeal. The five- ring gas hob, electric oven and extractor are in the middle run and the fridge, washing machine and dishwasher are also all integrated, so this kitchen’s ready to move into. There’s a fabulous hose tap beneath the window to the garden and space under the stairs for a freezer and vacuum etc. Outside, the flint walled garden’s surprisingly spacious for this central location and has a paved area for the bbq and a raised, decked area ideal for al fresco dining. Facing east, it’s open to the south and backs onto gardens of a pedestrian twittern, so it’s remarkably peaceful, too. Upstairs, the landing has a cupboard and access to the attic. To the right, the first of the double bedrooms has garden views and as the cottages behind are lower, it's lighter than some. With calm décor and an oak floor, it’s ready for your move, as is the master bedroom, which spans the whole of the front of the building, has tasteful designer paper and, with a whole wall of wardrobes, has all the storage you could wish for. Agent's thoughts You can walk to the station, shops, clubs, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, and the beach from this popular street, where the houses do not come onto the market very often.

Owner's secret...

“The location’s perfect as you can reach everywhere on foot, although there are loads of bus routes from the station, and for the central position, it’s surprisingly quiet and neighbours are friendly.”

Agent's thoughts...

Ideal for commuters and busy city lovers, this unique characterful cottage is in the popular, historical West Hill conservation area and is sheltered from the noise of nearby fashionable shops, restaurants, clubs, cinemas and theatres. Bright and spacious, it’s also conveniently located for city parks that provide cool green spaces and host numerous arts events all year round. For those who love the outdoors, Brighton beach, the Downs and the cosmopolitan Marina are easy to reach, and for commuters, the station serving Gatwick and London is around the corner and there’s quick access to the A23/A27.
