Why you'll like it...

Style: detached house (2014) Bedrooms: 4 double; 1 en suite Bathrooms: 2 Living rooms: 1 vast and open plan Area: 1763 sq.ft. Outside: south/west facing garden and terrace Location: Surrenden/Fiveways Parking: detached garage and drive for 2 cars Why you’ll like it: The streets surrounding Fiveways have been popular with families and professionals alike for many years now – and it is clear to see why. There is a lovely array of architecture from period properties through to contemporary homes such as this, but for families, however, it is the school catchment and the easy London commute which are the biggest pull, and the reason so many Londoners have made this their first choice when making the move. This striking detached home was built in 2014 and it certainly stands out from its neighbours. The strong horizontal lines of the walls and fencing stepping up the hill are continued throughout the home and garden giving a stylish finish, and clever use of window frame colour adds interest. The approach to the house is impressive, passing well-tended lawns contained in white bordered terraces down to the front door with a chic glass porch. Inside, you step into a bright and airy hallway with gleaming oak flooring and where the ceiling rises to the full height of the roof above your head. To your left is a spacious room, which is the first of the double bedrooms, ideally placed for guests or teenagers, but could equally be a quiet, private office if you prefer. Around the corner, past huge under stair storage, are two matching doors, which display the linear theme running through this well-designed house, and lead into the south facing kitchen and living room, which flow into one another. The practical oak floor continues into this large light space, with ample room for sofas and a dining table and where there are windows along all three walls. Ahead, the south west wall is almost entirely glass with floor to ceiling doors folding right out making the large paved sun terrace part of this entertaining space. To the left of the French doors in the south wall, the kitchen area is defined by a dove grey breakfast bar. The fitted units are a glossy grey and stylishly topped with smooth grey quartz stone. On your left is a smart black induction hob with a sleek steel and glass extractor above it and the ovens are thoughtfully placed in a tower, with the sink and dishwasher nicely placed opposite and beneath windows looking across the slope of the lawn. Outside, the garden is large and zoned, with the paved sun terrace leading around to the lawns which wrap around this home, stepping up the hill with geometric precision and all with wonderful far reaching views across Brighton to the sea – reminding you just how close to the coast you are here. Carpeted stairs with glass balustrades wend their way up to the first floor which feels wonderfully spacious and light – again due to substantial glazing on all sides. There are two glamorous bedrooms; one with plush grey carpet underfoot and both with stylish feature walls and light fittings. A chic family bathroom with large grey tiles sits between the two with a dual end bath cleverly positioned in the eaves and a roomy shower for when time is of the essence. At the end of the hallway is the spacious master bedroom, with stunning views through the Velux windows and there is a walk-in wardrobe with an automatic light. The en suite is on the right, simply but stylishly decorated and which has a contemporary white suite and shower mixer taps on the bath. Agent’s thoughts: This is a really impressive house – ideal for both family time and entertaining, and the views are lovely. Being a recent new build, it has 5 years remaining on is building warranty. Owner’s secret: “This has been a wonderful home for us – particularly when entertaining in the summer when the garden becomes a fantastic extension of the home. As commuters, the location of the station has been brilliant, and we have loved being equidistant between the city and the countryside as you get the best of both worlds.” Where it is: Shops: Local 5 min walk, city centre 10 min bus ride Train Station: Preston Park Station 10 min walk Seafront or Park: Hollingbury Park 1 min walk, Seafront 10 min drive Closest Schools: Primary: Balfour Primary School Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Sixth Form: Varndean College, BHASVIC, Newman College Private: Brighton College

Agent's thoughts...

This stunning home is beautifully situated in a prestigious area with lots of local green spaces, and the South Downs on your doorstep. 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 for those who require direct and fast access to the airports and London.
