Property description

*** open house 21st January ***

Purplebricks are proud to present this wonderful double fronted detached Edwardian house which boasts accommodation of approximately 255 sqm / 2746 sqft, an enviably sized plot on one of Brighton's most prestigious tree lined avenues and is offered with no onward chain.

Just moments from the beautiful Preston Park, local shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants and conveniently set for the nearby station, this fabulous family home is also within easy walking distance to a selection of Brighton's most sought after schools to include; Balfour primary, Dorothy Stringer, Varndean and Cardinal Newman secondary schools alongside Brighton College and Montessori private schools.

Brighton's vibrant city centre and historical seafront are a steady stroll away and the A27 and A23 are easily accessible from Preston Road which connects to London.

Presently, this substantial property spans three floors with well proportioned versatile accommodation retaining a wealth of period features arranged as four double bedrooms, three receptions, home office and gym. There is, of course, flexibility to adapt current configuration to suit the new owner and also great potential for further development. Should the current owners have remained, it was their intention to convert the loft to two further bedrooms and to arrange the basement as an expansive kitchen dining family space. However new opportunities have prompted a reluctant move to relocate. Recent improvements include a stunning refitted bathroom with contemporary fittings and walk in shower, alongside installation of a new heating system which ready to be connected to solar panels.

The stunning west facing garden flows from the house and is complete with treehouse and mature planting - leading to the garage at the rear. A sun terrace stretches the width of the house taking in spectacular and widespread views.
