GUIDE PRICE: £525,000. INTERNAL VIEWING AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.

A treat for the senses, the garden has not been forgotten in the design process but has been professionally landscaped to create a tranquil haven to be enjoyed all year round. Being within walking distance of two commuter stations; excellent primary and secondary schools; two popular parks and with a share of the freehold- this outstanding property should grab the attentions of many.

Why you'll like it...

Style: lower ground floor garden flat Bedrooms: 2 double plus dressing room/occasional bedroom Bathrooms: 1 Living Rooms: 1 spacious and open plan Area: 973 sq.ft. Outside: east facing garden with southerly aspect Location: Preston Park Conservation Area Parking: Residents permit zone J Why you’ll like it: Lining the upper border of Brighton’s most beautiful park; Preston Park Avenue is tree-lined and characterised by substantial Victorian villas set back from the road on generous plots. All have been converted into luxury apartment buildings in more recent years, but they continue to command the same air of grandeur. With its own street entrance, this exceptional apartment is accessed down a few stone steps on the left. It is only partially lower ground but does not feel as such once inside as an incredible amount of natural light is able to stream in from east to west throughout the day. It also has sole use of the stunning rear garden which is a delightful extension of the home during the summer. From the moment you enter, it is clear this is a beautifully maintained home with many stylish bespoke features throughout. Gleaming engineered wood flooring flows for the spacious entrance hall into every room and is paired with crisp white walls to complement. There are plenty of storage units built in to the wide hallway, and the ceilings are high; adding to the sense of space. To the right, the hallway opens up to a spacious dressing room area where double doors link through to the master bedroom. It feels like a room in its own right with a sofa bed and a work space, and the utilities and boiler have been cleverly hidden within streamlined, full height cupboards. If a third bedroom is required, there is plenty of space to add a partition wall without compromising on space. The master bedroom is perfectly peaceful looking out to the front garden planting while remaining private from the street, and even with a king size bed and several pieces of bedroom furniture, there is ample floor space. Conveniently close, the bathroom is just across the hall with a chic finish and a wet-room rainfall shower, and a Deca hand basin has been fitted into a vanity unit for toiletries. Next door, bedroom two has the most exquisite garden views which can be enjoyed from your bed in the morning and is another generous double bedroom with space for a range of furnishings. Sharing the same sunny aspect and garden views, the living room and dining room offers a serene and stylish space for relaxation and formal dining. The garden facing wall is almost entirely glazed, with new timber-framed French doors linking it with the outside and the views are a pleasure at any time of year. Clean lines and clever lighting are echoed in the modern kitchen which is sociably open to the room, although recessed. In here, ruby gloss units offer a vast amount of storage and work space at base level, while industrial shelving and mirrored walls create a sense of openness. The current owners have a full height fridge and freezer while the dishwasher, fan oven and induction hob have been integrated, and the aforementioned utilities have their own cupboard in the hall. With high quality plants from Architectural Plants, the garden was first excavated to create a slate patio area close to the flat, so you can spill outside for alfresco dining. Stepping up, the landscaping continues where a wild pond has been created, although it has the facility for a filter should someone wish to add fish in the future. It is home to water lilies and newts at present and is a peaceful feature of the garden with a seating area to catch the early afternoon sunshine. White rendered walls create border flower beds which have been designed to bloom from early spring through to autumn, and even in winter, there is a variety of shape and texture from evergreens. It is barely overlooked so it is a magical space to sit and relax; undisturbed but for the sound of birdsong. Agent’s thoughts: Superbly styled and full of natural light, this is a really impressive property. The garden is a real haven, and it is wonderfully sheltered from the elements. The attention to detail and quality finish is evident throughout, so this property will not stay on the market for long. Owner’s secret: ‘We have lived here for fifteen-years and have enjoyed every minute. The garden was a labour of love but we couldn’t be happier with the results – indeed we often sit outside late into the evening with friends during the summer months. The location is hugely convenient with Brighton Station just 10-minutes away and the shops, cinema and café culture of Preston Circus on your doorstep. We are moving out of the city, but we will miss it here.” Where it is: Shops: Local 1 min walk, North Laines 15 min walk Station: Brighton 10-15 min walk, Preston Park Station 15 min walk Seafront or Park: Preston Park opposite, seafront 30 min walk Closest Schools: Primary: Downs Infant and Junior Schools, Balfour Primary Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College

Agent's thoughts...

This is a beautiful 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/A27 and commuter stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to the universities, Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
