Why you’ll like it:

With double fronted charm and sunny east west orientation, this private home set 30 steps above a quiet road is almost opposite Preston Park Station and can’t help but impress. Although there is parking by the back entrance too, the front approach is attractive as the garden rises to a paved terrace and a broad sun deck for dining to make the most of the unique views which sweep across Preston Valley. Inside has been thoughtfully brought into the 21st century whilst retaining precious period details which include an original front door, matched in beauty by that of the tiled inner lobby which has hand painted leaded panels of its own, and it opens to a ground floor where practical floorboards relaxes company and leads through into a room of classic beauty.

Full of light, the reception has a broad bay at the front has a window seat from which to admire the wonderful views and an open fireplace is ideal for winter evenings. With a decorative ceiling and frieze it has plenty of character as well as space for family gatherings and split level, a graceful arch invites you through to a private dining area where guests can relax unwatched. Shelves and a cabinet are on each side of an elegant fireplace, and a door connects straight to the kitchen for seamless entertaining.

Lined with windows including a skylight and with a half glazed door to the garden, this bright and cheerful kitchen also opens to the hallway and is expertly planned to be user friendly, flowing around a sociable breakfast bar of different heights. Attractive units are topped by wipeable surfaces which gleam beneath a choice of lighting, the central gas hob and fan oven are beneath a hood, plumbing is in place for a dishwasher and washer/drier and there is room for a big fridge freezer if you like to entertain. Tucked away at the far end is a useful guest cloakroom, stylishly decorated in the colours of the sea.

Outside, steps lead up to the sunny, west facing garden with grass underfoot and a sun trap scented by mature apple, greengage and fig trees. Lit stairs take you to the back gate and residential street behind – where you can also park, so supermarket deliveries can carry shopping down, not up.

Returning to the house, the spacious bedroom/study faces east for the sunshine and fabulous cityscape, and with bookshelves by a fireplace this is currently used as a peaceful refuge from which to work, and it is large enough to share in comfort.

Upstairs, this house spreads its wings with a central landing which glints in colours brought in by the historic leaded window. Quiet at the back of this substantial property, the first of the generous double bedrooms looks over the fruit trees of the back garden and with sumptuous thick carpet, fitted wardrobe and calm décor, it is ready to move into. Across the hallway, you will feel like a VIP in an opulent bathroom shimmering in iridescent borders where you can bathe in glory in a glamorous freestanding bath which has a powerful shower above it, and the ladder style heated rail can also warm your night clothes.

At the front of the building, the second double room makes the most of its elevated position with a box bay and a window seat to admire the restful views over our leafy city, and the fitted wardrobes reach the ceiling – which is high. Majestic of proportion and of understated elegance, the master bedroom is a soothing retreat where you can unwind whilst appreciating the spectacular, uninterrupted vista which sweeps across the glittering city to the sea. With a deep bay of triple windows it is exceptionally appealing and a ceiling rose, swan neck coving and pretty fireplace bring a refined finish this uniquely attractive home.

Agent says:

“Big, beautiful and unusually private, this home in a good school catchment area couldn’t be better if you commute by train, which is probably why these spacious houses with versatile accommodation do not appear on the market very often.”

Owner’s secret:

“We have loved bringing this charming house back to life for our family who enjoyed the space, the views and the location close to parks, schools and the sea. As our children grew, they have enjoyed the freedom that the station brings – they can be in Brighton for the nightlife and home again safely in minutes- and the quick access to the city and easy walk to the station has made our professional commute easy, too. Having been here 18 years we have never tired of the view, especially in the evening as the sun set sheds a golden light across the valley, or a huge moon rises above it.”

Agent's thoughts...

Ideal for commuters as the station serving Gatwick and London is a 1 minute stroll, this is an exclusive location with good local schools, close to Preston Park with sports facilities, playground and open spaces which also host arts events. The sea and countryside walks are just a short drive and there is a choice of friendly local shops and cafés at Matlock Road or Preston Village. The vibrant arts venues, international restaurants and cosmopolitan shopping of the city are all easy to reach and for those who need to commute by car, there’s swift access to the A23/A27 and Zone A has no waiting list at the time of writing.
