Hollingbury Park Avenue bn1

Sitting within a vibrant, family friendly community; just one minute from the fashionable Fiveways shopping district, is this generous, three double bedroom family home. It is semi-detached and has the elegant room proportions of the Edwardian period with high ceilings and a wealth of original detail which has been carefully retained. These period features have been blended with a modern, Farrow and Ball palette and stylish fixtures and fittings to create a warm and comfortable home. Renovated to the highest standards only two years ago, the finish is exemplary and in keeping with the natural character of the property, and it is filled with natural light throughout the day due to a sunny east to west orientation. It also boasts a raised west facing garden, a highly favoured school catchment from nursery through to 6th Form College, and excellent transport links both in and out of the city by train, bus and car, so it is sure to be coveted by many.

Why you'll like it...

In brief: Style: Semi-detached Edwardian house Bedrooms: 3 generous doubles Living Rooms: 2 spacious inc. kitchen breakfast room Area: 1206 sq.ft 112.1 sq.m Outside: West facing rear garden and planting to the front Location: Fiveways Parking: Residents permit zone F Why you’ll like it: Peacefully positioned away from the hubbub of Fiveways yet remaining conveniently close; Hollingbury Park Avenue gets the best of both worlds. It comes to no surprise that this area has been retained its popular status over the years as it has so many favourable qualities. The pretty latticed streets of Victorian terraces; the excellent schools; commuter links and lush green parks are certainly attractive and have come together to create the ideal community setting. This substantial three-bedroom, family home is semi-detached with a creamy gault and red brick façade which was redecorated (front and back) only last year. It is raised slightly from the street which adds to its privacy, so you approach up a few stone steps, passing a scented front garden to your door. Once inside you are greeted with gloriously high ceilings adorned with period detail and travertine floor tiles beneath your feet making it immediately apparent that the current owners have a refined eye for colour, style and period interiors. It is warm and welcoming from the moment you step through the door, and this continues into the exceptional reception room, first on the right. Ideal for entertaining and family time; this room was once two but has been opened to create one bright and sociable space. The wide bay window almost covers the easterly wall to bright in a beautiful morning light but has also been adorned with white plantation shutters for both privacy and style. These can also be found on the first-floor rooms which gives a uniform appearance from outside, and all windows were recently replaced with energy efficient double-glazed sashes. Immaculate engineered oak flooring echoes the tone of the internal doors which have been stripped and varnished back to their original form, and a grand period fireplace takes centre stage. This is open to warm the room during the cooler seasons and has unique decorative tiles flanking the cast iron insert. The rear of the room has a tall window looking out towards the garden bringing in a warming afternoon light from the west, and there is ample space for formal dining here, although you can eat within the kitchen too. Passing deep under stairs storage and a separate WC/cloakroom you come to the bright kitchen breakfast room which is another sociable space with a generous breakfast bar and plenty of modern units in white gloss. These have been paired with glistening quartz work surfaces, and into these the five-ring induction Neff hob and Franke sink have been seamlessly cut-in. Dual Neff ovens with microwave settings have been fitted at waist height to allow easy access, the Bosch dishwasher, AEG washer dryer and refuse have also been integrated, leaving space for an American fridge freezer which may be negotiable. There is an area for dining by the bi-fold doors which open completely to link the room with the garden, which becomes a delightful extension of the room during summer. It is raised up but feels perfectly private and has terraced flower beds; ideal for creating a kitchen garden. Side access allows you to bring gardening equipment, bikes and muddy paws though to the back, instead of traipsing them through the immaculate house, and this opens to the side return which is ideal for storage. Returning to the house, carpeted stairs lead you to the first half landing where bedroom three is ahead. A very comfortable double with a new plush carpet underfoot, it has ample space for a king size bed and a study area, as a wall of built in wardrobes (also housing a new Vaillant boiler) are in place to maximise the floor space further. The newly fitted and beautifully designed, Burlington bathroom is also on this level, and takes a modern view on the Victorian/Edwardian style. Metro brick wall tiles surround the claw foot bath which has been fitted with a rainfall shower above it, and the Moroccan style floor tiles are heated from below for added luxury. A few steps take you to two further, fine size double bedrooms; one with stripped and varnished floor boards and a restful garden view and fitted wardrbobe, and the larger of the two, spanning the front of the house looks out over the attractive homes opposite. This has a wide bay window and a period fireplace to mirror those below it and has plush new carpet underfoot for added warmth and comfort. From here you have access to the cast iron balcony on the front of the house, which is fine to sit out on, but is more commonly used for decorative plants, a large storage cupboard on the landing can also be found. Bear in Mind: The current owners have not extended into the loft space as they feel it does not have enough height, but it is a vast space which has been boarded, so it is ideal for extra storage. Owner’s secret: “We have spent the last two years redecorating and renovating this house, and we are so pleased with the results. It is a wonderful space for entertaining and it has a lovely feel to it every time you come home. You cannot beat the area for its sense of community and the convenience of Fiveways is amazing. Ravens Bakery and Barfield’s Butchers are legendary, and there are several fantastic cafes to choose from. We have made many friends in the street and if it had a fourth bedroom we would happily stay!” Where it is: Shops: Local 2 min walk, North Laines 10 min bus ride Station: Preston Park Station 15 min walk, London Road 10 min walk Seafront or Park: Blakers Park 5 min walk, seafront 10 min bus ride Closest Schools: Primary: Downs Infant and Junior Schools, Balfour Primary School Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College

Agent's thoughts...

This is a stunning family home in a popular location which is well served for shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23 and stations are also within easy reach for those requiring fast links to the universities, Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
