Hillview Road BN2

This three bedroom end of terrace house adjacent to Brighton Race Course offers a unique view over the city of Brighton. High on the hill, it offers uninterrupted views of the coast both to the East, South & West as far as Worthing and beyond and with the hills of the South Downs clearly visible inland. It has been a much-loved family home for over 40 years, and while the interior is in need of some modernisation, there is plenty of scope to extend further up, or out, and put your own stamp on the place. With clever planning, and a bit of vision, this property could be transformed into a stunning and contemporary family home; adding value in an area where building consents are easier to come by. Transport links are excellent with the A23 and A27 just minutes away by car, and there are regular busses which run throughout the city and beyond. The area is popular with families and professionals alike, but it would make a great investment property for developers too.

Why you'll like it...

The early to mid-years of the 20th Century saw a huge surge in house building on Brighton and Hove’s outskirts, and this end-terrace house is a prime example of 1930s architecture with wide bow windows to fill its generous rooms with light. It is however in need of some modernisation, but for developers and families looking to add value; this house is a real gem. Set back from the road behind a pretty front garden, the house is unassuming, yet you turn around to face south and are greeted by sea views and big open skies. A sizable entrance porch provides space to hang coats and place boots and shoes, while a second front door allows access. Fantastically retro at every turn, it is clear this house has not seen much renovation since the 1970s, but it has been well-maintained in this time. It is the potential to extend and add value which will interest most people, as there is plenty of space to do this. There is a generous living room and dining area which has a wide bay window facing south, while at the rear, the original Crittall doors and windows have been retained. These would have accessed the garden when the house was built, but a later lean-to extension with brick walls was added to the back of the property which now houses part of the kitchen. This almost doubles the reception space, so with some reconfiguration, and restoration of the original features, a fantastic open-plan kitchen and family room could be created. Outside, the garden stretches back approximately 50-feet and has well-established borders around and area of lawn. These are awash with spring and summer blooms and scented herbs, and a sweet collection of fruit trees sit at the far end. There is a shed and a greenhouse full of grapevines, and while it is technically north facing, it is gloriously sunny all day as it does not sit in the shade of the house. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, a roomy single and the family bathroom. There are some original built-in wardrobes, plus space for freestanding furniture, and the views only improve the further up the house you go. To the front your line of sight now takes you across the city in the west where the coast curves round to meet Worthing, and at the rear, the rolling hills of the South Downs come into views over the neighbouring rooftops. There is of course potential to extend into the loft space – as many neighbours have shown, and with the addition of a dormer, it has the potential to create two further bedrooms which would add value and space to this family home. Agent’s thoughts: With so much potential and some really lovely features – not to mention the views, this house will attract the attentions of many, so it will not stay on the market for long. Owner’s secret “This was our family home for over 40-years, so it has many wonderful memories and has always been a warm and welcoming space for us to come back to when visiting our parents over the years, enjoying the unique panoramic views. There is a lovely sense of community here, with kind friendly neighbours, and an open green directly in front for kids to play. While it feels like you live in the countryside the city with all its attractions is still easily accessible – including the university campuses, the stadium at Falmer and Brighton Marina- with a bus route straight to town and easy access via car avoiding the Woodingdean traffic. We will miss coming here but it will be lovely to know a new family has breathed new life into the house and enjoy it for many more years to come.” Shops: city centre 30 min bus ride Train Station: Brighton Station 30 min bus ride or drive Seafront or Park: South Downs Way 1 min walk, Seafront 45 min walk Closest Primary: Woodingdean Primary, Elm Grove Primary Secondary: BACA, Longhill, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College

Agent's thoughts...

This family home is beautifully situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and green spaces nearby. The city centre shopping districts and parks are also within easy reach, and this house also offers easy access to the A27/A23 which has direct and fast links to the universities, airports and London.
