Redhill Drive detached house 1955

'GUIDE PRICE': £550,000-£600,000. Peacefully positioned on the western side of Preston Valley, enjoying striking views across the tree and roof tops of the local landscape, stands this deceptively spacious, detached house. It has been a much-loved family home for the past seventeen-years, providing versatile living space with three double bedrooms and two generous reception rooms, yet the potential is there to create further space with extensions both up and out. The rooms are filled with natural light from the south, and while it has clearly been well-maintained over the years, there remains some scope to add value or simply put your own stamp on the place. It is also in the catchment for several sought-after schools; Preston Park Station is within walking distance, and the A23 is easily accessible should you need to commute by car. While this is a quiet residential area, surrounded by greenery and with the countryside close by, you are still well connected to the city and beyond. With so many attractive features, and being in such a favoured and prestigious location, this character home is sure to attract the attentions of many.

Why you'll like it...

Style: detached house 1955 Bedrooms: 3 double Bathrooms: 2 Living rooms: 2 spacious Outside: south facing, tiered rear garden Area: 1501 sq.ft Location: Withdean Parking: driveway, converted garage and free on street Why you’ll like it: Withdean has been highly regarded for many years now, and it is easy to see its appeal. With striking views across the city and a beautiful array of trees and wildlife, the area is certainly attractive, and the homes here sit on generous plots. Redhill Drive is a quiet tree-lined road on the border of the South Downs, yet it is only a short drive from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer, and there is a wonderful sense of community due to the favoured school catchment. Set back from the road behind a neat driveway and lawn, this house appears to be single-storey from the front. A path leads past scented borders and Japanese anemone to the main door, and once inside, true scale of the house becomes apparent. The entrance hall is wide and welcoming with a galleried landing wrapping around a central staircase which turns its way down to the living areas below. This double height space really adds to the light and airy feeling as you enter the property, and natural sunlight streams in from the bedrooms on the southerly side. There are three double bedrooms on this level; one looking out to the peaceful garden at the front, and two with exquisite views across the valley. During the winter when the leaves have fallen from the trees, you can spy the homes of Valley Drive as they rise up the other side, and at night their lights sparkle through the branches. Throughout the rest of the year, however, the trees are awash with colour and wildlife, forming a beautiful backdrop to these rooms. The master bedroom has a wealth of built in storage which would be easy to modernise and adds to the sense of space within. These rooms share use of the family bathroom which has a charming Victoriana decoration with floral prints on the tiles and sanitary wear. It is a fantastic size for a family, with ample space for bathing little ones in the bathtub, and there is a separate shower next door in the hall for when time is of the essence. Between the two is a large airing cupboard, and the internal garage is also accessible from here. Having been partially converted, the garage is a very usable room with windows, plastered walls, lighting and two lovely, side-by-side doors so it can still be used as a garage if need be, or a work space with its own street entrance. It is a versatile space with heating and double glazing, so it would be ideal as bedroom four, or there is a vast loft space which is also ripe for conversion. The neighbours have set a precedence with this, including dormers for extra head room, so the possibilities are endless should you be hankering after more space. Stepping down to the lower level, it is incredible how beautifully bright it is. Windows run along the southerly wall bringing in the same sensational, open views as above, and internal windows from the living room to the hall allow it to stream right through the house. Passing a useful downstairs WC, the kitchen sits at the far end with timeless appeal and a fine quality finish. Light wood Shaker units have been topped with dark granite, and within these, the fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, five-ring gas hob and dual ovens have been integrated. There is also a side door so you can bring muddy shoes or paws in to the stone kitchen floor rather than traipsing them through the house. Karndean flooring flows from the upper landing and down the stairs to the main reception which forms a large L-shape creating defined areas for relaxation and formal dining. A gas fire was fitted within a period style mantel, although this is for decoration only, but has the potential for an open fire with some professional investigation. Adjoining the living room is the conservatory which was built with year-round use in mind. It is of the finest quality with central heating and energy efficient double glazing and forms a lovely space to dine looking out over the vista. Double doors open from here to the garden terrace, almost doubling your entertaining space, so you can spill outside for barbecues as the weather hots up. The garden is very large, and having been built on the hillside, it has five distinct terraces. The first two have been paved making them ideal for dining alfresco where the views really come into their own. The next step down is an area of lawn, ideal for children’s games, then steps wend their way down to the lower gardens which are wild to attract bees and wildlife. For someone with an eye for landscaping, this garden is a real dream, as it has so much potential. There are well-established trees and magical spaces for tree houses or cabins, and while it receives an incredible amount of sunshine, border trees ensure it is not overlooked at all. Agent’s thoughts: This is a home you immediately feel welcome in. it has a great feel to it, and it is brimming with potential to extend and add value. Owner’s secret: “We have enjoyed every moment of living here as it is a happy, sun-filled house within a wonderful local community. You feel like you are in the middle of the countryside here, yet you are so well connected to the city as there is a bus which stops at the bottom of the road – close to the parade of shops, which takes you to Brighton Station in just 15 minutes. We no longer need the space, but we will miss it here.” Where it is: Shops: Local 1 min walk, city centre 15 min bus ride Train Station: Preston Park Station 10 min cycle, Brighton Station 15 min bus ride Seafront or Park: South Downs 5 min walk, seafront 10 min drive Closest Schools: Primary: Westdean Primary School Secondary: Hove Park, Blatchington Mill, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College

Agent's thoughts...

This generous home is situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and green spaces on your doorstep. The city centre shopping districts and beach are also within easy reach, and this house also offers easy access to Brighton Station, the A27 and the A23 which have direct and fast links to the universities, the airports and London.
