Arundel Drive East BN2

Opposite a park with the beach just moments away, this sunny six bedroom house on a large double plot has a feel good atmosphere and unusually bright and generous rooms. The ground floor has entertaining at its heart with a kitchen opening to the encircling grounds and a large private dining room which steps down to a big, bright living room with a wood burning stove. Impressive as it is with quiet family rooms and a huge master suite where glorious views sweep over parkland to the sea, three guest bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor are ideal if you are thinking of working from home or looking for an annexe. With a garage for a car or for kayaks, this family home embraces its prime position less than 500 yards from the sea, and planning permission is in place to extend the kitchen and create a dream home with two more bedrooms and a bathroom at the top. Overlooking Saltdean’s Oval Park, it is so quiet it is easy to forget just how convenient this location is with good local schools and Brighton, Lewes and Gatwick all an easy commute.

Why you'll like it...

Tucked privately away behind a front garden, this spacious 1930’s home was extended in the 1970’s into the neighbouring plot to create an unusually large house and garden in this popular coastal location which attracts families wanting a healthy lifestyle and good schools for their children, within easy reach of the city. Appealing from the outside, an original oak door opens to a porch with leaded doors leading to a bright and inviting hallway which sets off in two directions, which gives an immediate sense of space and also divides the house into two separate zones in which to spread your wings – one for entertaining and family rooms, the other for a quiet study and comfortable guest rooms -which would be easy to transform into a self- contained annexe., subject to consents. The kitchen and garden: It is rare to find a combination of the garden and kitchen as the heart of a home so close to the city, but this stylish property has that welcoming balance. Family friendly with a door to the garden and hatch to the dining room, painted units provide ample storage and practical working surfaces which two deep larders ensure remain clutter free. Country in style in keeping with its leafy surrounds, quarry tiles allow children and guests free reign to spill out into the grounds to collect eggs from the owner’s hens for breakfast. Designed for entertaining, the handsome Belling multi fuel range could stay subject to circumstance, plumbing is in place for both a dishwasher and a washing machine, although there is a separate utility hidden away at the end of the hall. Outside, the garden is a private paradise, child and pet secure surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. A play area is cleverly hidden behind a flower bed away from a paved, lit terrace with a relaxed, intercontinental feel, space for sharing and a firepit for later suppers. The large lawn is level with the house and terrace for games so you can enjoy the children at play – surprisingly hard to find on the south coast built on the edge of the South Downs National Park. The chicken run will move with the vendors although the traditional potting shed will stay, and a path leads to the detached garage which is used as a workshop with power and water, and to the side gate, so this generous home just keeps on giving with even more space to think about! The reception and dining room: With a sunny east west orientation and big, diamond drop windows at both the front and back, the elegant dining room peeps into the kitchen so the cook can be sociable, and it also facilitates smooth serving whilst said chef can be as untidy as they like! Looking over its own gardens, friends can relax in private and an arch leads through to a fabulous living room where a large bay frames a verdant vista over the hedges to the park and a window to the south brings in the sun all day. Light and airy during summer, this room is thoughtfully planned with a Firebelly wood burner which transforms it into a warm and welcoming refuge during winter. Two family bedrooms and the principle suite: A second archway from the dining room leads to an inner lobby and the first of the double bedrooms, which has garden views through a leaded window which almost fills the eastern wall and its own access to the sun terrace. With plenty of floor space to play with, even with a double bed in it there is still space for a study area and a deep under stair cupboard helps to keep the room fuss free. Up broad stairs, the second double room is also a good size and full of birdsong – and with so many rooms available, this could be a glamorous dressing room when it is not needed as a nursery. Across the landing, sun and sea stream through one of the largest master suites we have seen. The broad west bay brings in a vista sweeping from the sea, over the chic Lido and park to surrounding Downland, and there is more than enough space to accommodate seating from which to enjoy them. A wall of wardrobes provide all the storage you could dream of – although there is still space for more – and the en suite bathroom is a vintage treasure, embracing its 1970’s origin whilst delivering luxury twin hand basins, separate bath and shower, and ample storage. The west wing: With sea views and dual aspect windows a bright and cheerful bedroom at the front is currently used as a study and has an original Art Deco fireplace. Across the hall a glamorous shower room has an Australasian influence and two further quiet double bedrooms have plenty of character, space and light of their own and could provide an income without disturbing the main house as the utility room at the end of the passage could perhaps become a door to the side gate. Agent says: “Opposite a park, less than 500 yards from the sea and close to the Downs this location is exceptional. Big and stylish as it is, there is permission and plans to view which would increase the footage even further.” Owner’s secret “We have enjoyed bringing up our family in this happy home which is perfect for celebrations, and the garden is our own private piece of countryside! When we bought the house, our focus was on quiet nights, easy parking and good schools for the children, but we also achieved the dream of a friendly area where we can walk to local amenities and carry the kayaks to the beach in just minutes.” What’s around you Shops: Local 2 minutes Station: Brighton 20 minutes by bus Seafront or Park: Sea 4 minutes on foot, park opposite Closest schools: Primary: Saltdean 4 min drive Secondary: Longhill Private: Brighton College, Roedean, Newlands

Agent's thoughts...

The friendly community of Saltdean is by the sea and on the edge of the National South Downs Park. Popular with families and professionals it has plenty of local shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a central park which has tennis courts, a playground and café- and the primary school is Ofsted rating good at the time of writing. The coastal village of Rottingdean is just around the corner and you are also only 10 minutes from the cosmopolitan Marina with its harbourside restaurants, health club and cinemas. About a 20- minute drive from Brighton’s city centre and close to bus routes, do not forget that both the county town of Lewes and Gatwick are also commutable at about 30 and 45 minutes.
