Why you'll like it...

5 DOUBLE BEDROOMS 2 BATHROOMS (1 ensuite) and downstairs CLOAKROOM 5 LIVING AREAS (one on 1st floor) KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM UTILITY ROOM HOME OFFICE/GARAGE (side annex with own entrance) OFF STREET PARKING (for upto 3 cars) IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE (no chain) LARGE SOUTH FACING REAR GARDEN A rare opportunity for families looking for their ‘forever-home’ in a prestigious and hugely attractive area of the city. It is ideally located within catchment for some of the highest achieving schools, and transport links by bus, train and car are excellent. This house is hugely versatile. It provides a dedicated space to optionally run a business from home with its own entrance, and it’s brimming with much value-add potential to extend into the loft or perhaps transform the entire side extension into a separate one- or two – bedroom dwelling for a live-in family member. WHY YOU’LL LIKE IT This 1930's house has been seamlessly extended and modernised in the 40 years the current owners have lived here, yet it retains the quintessential architectural features of the period with the wide bay windows and hung tiles on its red brick facade. Fronted by a neat garden and a drive which can be easily widened to provide off street parking for up to 3 cars, this extraordinary family home is set within the prestigious enclave of Surrenden. Varndean Gardens is an attractive wide tree-lined road mainly used by residents and visitors only, making it an incredibly peaceful neighbourhood. Once inside, the scale of the house becomes apparent as you are greeted into a generous entrance hall, complete with original oak panelling, a turning staircase leading onto the first floor, beamed ceilings, and stained glass windows. You will immediately notice how warm, welcoming and full of light this house is, and you will be amazed by the size and versatility of the living spaces it provides. You’ll also love the secluded South-facing rear garden with its summer house, large patio for alfresco dining and the panoramic views across the Preston valley. EXTENSIVE LIVING SPACES This amazing house must be seen to truly appreciate the size, quality, breadth and versatility of the living spaces it provides. Leading off the entrance hall is a cloakroom, a sizeable modern kitchen, and main reception areas which are currently arranged as an open-plan living room, music room, and dining room, yet they remain as clearly defined spaces for formal dining, quiet relaxation and entertaining. If open-plan is not for you, they can be easily reverted back into two or three separate rooms. These reception rooms stretch the depth of the house with generous amounts of glazing on both sides so the natural light flows right through. During the warmer seasons, you can open the French doors to link with the patio and the garden, and for the winter months there are two open fires (one gas, one wood) to create atmosphere and warmth as the weather cools. There’s another separate living area on the ground floor accessed from the living room, which is currently used as a study with its own seating area and views out to the rear garden. Even more living space is provided by a family/TV room with a split-level study area on the 1st floor. LUXURY BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS The accommodation on the first floor is equally impressive with five double bedrooms which run along either side of the corridor stretching the full width of the house. At one end of the corridor, the original stained glass windows filter a colourful light onto the galleried landing while at the other end, a large skylight sheds light down the corridor throughout the day. The master bedroom has a beautiful bay window to mirror that in he dining room below, which frames delightful views to the north across the valley. Most of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and from the three South facing bedrooms the outlook is green and tranquil. The master bedroom has a large en suite with a huge corner shower a vanity unit, toilet and bidet, two heated towel rails and plenty of storage with room to spare to optionally add a bath. The family bathroom is accessible from the corridor and incorporates a bath with a shower above, two heated towel rails, a toilet and large vanity unit with plenty of storage for toiletries. VERSATILE SIDE EXTENSION Having been built on a slight hill, the extension has a unique split-level layout with a seating area at ground level with garden access, then steps leading up to a mezzanine office, and steps leading down to a utility room and a professional office space with its own street entrance. This is the perfect space for people looking to run a business from home, or utilise it as a games room, home cinema room, art studio or gym. This space was designed such that, without modifications, it can also be used as a damp-proof heated garage! The front entrance is a fully weathered, insulated and part-glazed wooden door made from rot resistant timber. It comprises two side-hinged door panels split 1/3, 2/3 to provide a normal sized traffic door when not used as a garage. Overall, this side extension compromises three levels including the accommodation on the first floor. It could be completely remodelled and transformed (subject to planning) into a separate one-or two- bedroom dwelling for a live in family member. The possibilities are endless, and will certainly give the news owners food for thought. LOCATION This unique home sits in a popular location which is well served for parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk or drive from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A27/A23 are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.

Owner's secret...

‘’This has been a wonderful home for us over the last 40-years. We have raised our three daughters here and have many happy memories. We hope the next inhabitants love it as much as we have - it will be a wrench to leave but we are downsizing and moving to the countryside, ready for the next chapter!”
