Why you'll like it...

** Guide Price £475,000 – £500,000 **

There is a peaceful lattice of Victorian streets which sit tucked away between the County Hospital and the sea and this beautiful house sits in its midst. With decorative old school radiators, gleaming wood and marble floors it has been sensitively modernised to a high standard using fittings to complement the original period character of the house whilst creating light and airy rooms ideal for a more modern, social lifestyle.

Inside, the hallway has retained its arched finials and the high ceiling continues into a spacious living/dining room with a broad bay window at one end and French doors linked to the patio- ideal during summer. In winter, inside is warm and cosy with not one but two working fireplaces, designer wallpaper adds sophistication to the space whilst dimmer switches allow you a choice of mood. There’s discreet practicality in the hatch through to the kitchen, and under stair cupboards help to keep the house clutter free.

With its own access to the patio, making al fresco dining easy, the kitchen is large enough for a family table for breakfasts and homework and both stylish and sensible, has a traditional dresser built in, in keeping with the age of the house. The multi fuel cooker could stay, subject to circumstance, there’s a spot where you can tuck away a tall fridge freezer and plumbing’s already in place for a dishwasher – there’s plumbing for a washing machine secreted away elsewhere.

On the first floor landing, the bathroom’s surprisingly large and is well planned with a classic, claw foot bath which has a Parisienne style shower above it. Twin skylights and large window bring in plenty of natural light whilst a heated rail for towels is a subtle contemporary touch.
The first of the double bedrooms is quiet and private with attractive features and spanning the full width of the house, the master bedroom’s a serene haven with a pretty shell fireplace and an entire wall of wardrobes! Peaceful on the top floor, the attic is lined with Velux framing sea views, and boarded with power there’s also under eave storage space should you need it.

“This has been a spacious, sociable home and it has also supplied a useful income when we’ve been away.”

Agent's thoughts...

In chic East Cliff CA, this charming home is close to the beach and bohemian cafés, bars and shops of Kemptown Village, which include a butchers, deli, bakers, bookstore and wine shop as well as a pharmacy and Co-Op. Kemptown hosts the hospitals, Amex and law courts as well as good schools like St Luke’s and Brighton College. Queen’s Park with a playground, pond and cafés is not far and the cultural heart of the city with its theatres, bars and historic Lanes are within walking distance (or 5 minutes by cab). The buzz of the central shopping district and waterfront amenities of the Marina are also easy to reach. For those who need to commute, the mainline station with its fast links to Gatwick and London is about 15 minutes by bus. If you use a car, this spacious house is in permit zone H which at the time of writing has no waiting list and the A23/A27 are convenient.
