Property description

Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease

This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise’s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property’s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £550,000, please contact Cubitt & West.

What the Owner says:
After buying the property to refurbish and move into ourselves we renovated with a higher specification in mind. We absolutely love entertaining so installed the best of the best in the hub of the home. Neff kitchen appliances, Franke sink and taps and of course a wine fridge! We invested extra money into underfloor heating in the utility, kitchen and dining area to keep our feet warm on those cold winter nights.

Our favourite part of the house is the view from the master bedroom upstairs. It has the best views we have seen in the whole of Brighton. You get views across chimney pots, out to sea and views over the city. The sun setting looks just incredible.
