Home Road modern end of terraced house (1976)

Guide Price: £585,000-£600,000 Surrounded by greenery and positioned within the peaceful Preston Village Conservation Area, this four-bedroom family home has a favoured corner plot with leafy views from every room. It sits at the top of a quiet road and is one of eight modern houses built in 1976. Recently renovated and reconfigured, its rooms are big and bright with natural light streaming in through wide picture windows, and the rooms are versatile to suit both families and professionals alike. Named Cherry Tree House due to the beautiful blossoming tree in the garden, the house has plenty of kerb appeal, and has parking for one car on the drive. For those who commute, you can walk to Preston Park Station in under five minutes or drive out to the A23 in the same time, and for families, the schools within catchment are excellent. So too are the parks, and while there are plenty of local amenities, you also have easy access to the city centre on foot, by bus or by train. With so many attractive features, this house will appeal to many.

Why you'll like it...

Style: Modern end of terraced house (1976) Bedrooms: 4 double Living rooms: 1-2 spacious inc. eat-in kitchen Area: 1320 sq.ft. Outside: west/south facing patio garden Location: Preston Village Parking: driveway – restrictions on street Why you’ll like it: Preston Village has a wonderful blend of properties ranging from quaint 17th Century cottages, through to these striking 20th century homes, yet they all sit harmoniously behind pretty gardens; in the dappled shade of the leafy embankment. Both architectural styles hold their own charm, but this house has particular interest with asymmetric angles to its roofline and a delicate, dusky-pink façade to perfectly match the cherry tree which blossoms in spring. Passing the driveway, you approach the house through a secure porch; perfect for storing shoes, then into a wide and welcoming hallway where stripped and varnished original floorboards flow into every room. From here there is a roomy ground floor WC which also houses the new gas combination boiler, then a very deep under stair cupboard has ample space for all your household items plus a rail for hanging coats. When the current owners moved here four years ago, they decided to reconfigure the ground floor by converting the garage into a bright kitchen dining room while creating bedroom four in place of the original kitchen. This works really well and provides enough space for a formal dining table to seat six and plenty of modern-country style units in buttermilk cream; topped with solid oak to echo the floor. Space and plumbing have been left for freestanding appliances to include a tall fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and a dishwasher, while the gas hob and oven have been integrated. Across the hall, bedroom four has been used as a guest room, a home office and a second reception, so depending on need it could also be a playroom, home gym or teenage snug. It has a restful décor and green views, and with energy efficient double glazing it is both warm and quiet. Double aspect and wonderfully generous, the living room has full height, box-bay windows and French doors leading out to the garden. This room is great for entertaining or for the whole family to cosy up together, and during summer, the garden becomes an extension of the space. This has been excavated to create a lovely sunny seating area which being open to the south becomes a sun trap in high season, yet it is screened from the street by well established borders. It is a treat for the senses out here with bird song filling the air and pretty blooms to decorate the space during spring and summer, and for somewhere so well connected to the city, it is incredibly tranquil. To the side there is storage for bikes and space for a shed, and with side access you can bring bikes or muddy boots and paws in without traipsing them through the house. Returning inside, the internal walls throughout the house have been completely re-plastered and redecorated so they are immaculate as they rise up through the double height stairwell to the first floor. Up here there are three very generous double bedrooms with plush, new grey carpet underfoot and delightful views from their wide picture windows. Being a Mid-Century build, these rooms have ample built-in storage which maximises the floorspace further, and the windows have deep sills which are ideal for displaying ornaments and plants. The master has a roomy en suite shower room while bedrooms two and three have use of the family bathroom which has a traditional bath suite with a shower above it and is naturally lit via a light well above the bath so you can watch the clouds as you relax after a long day. Agent’s thoughts: This family home feels immediately welcoming and has a stylish yet homely feel to it. It’s also deceptively spacious and being so perfectly located for the station, the schools and the city, it is bound to attract many. Owner’s secret: “It was the space and light which first attracted us to the house, and we are now completely sold on Mid-Century houses as they are designed so well. We have made many improvements since living here to create a homely and comfortable space, and we love coming home to the peace of Preston Village. There is a real sense of community here too which we will miss.” Where it is: Shops: Local 1 min, city centre 20 min walk or 4 mins on the train Station: Preston Park Station 5 min walk, Brighton Mainline 4 mins by train Seafront or Park: Park is 3 mins, Seafront is 10 mins by car Closest Schools: Primary: Balfour Primary, Stanford Infant and Junior Schools Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Sixth Form Colleges: Varndean College, BHASVIC, Newman College Private: Brighton College, Windlesham

Agent's thoughts...

This delightful and spacious house is just by Preston Park and local shops and within walking distance of popular schools. As it is also within a ten-minute drive of the beach and fashionable North Laine shopping district, there is easy access to all that this vibrant coastal city has to offer. Its proximity to the railway station and A23 makes this pretty house and garden an attractive proposition for those who require speedy access to London or the Airports on a regular or weekly basis.
