Description

Set in an attractive period building next to the striking All Saints church in central Hove, this second-floor apartment is well-placed for a range of amenities and travel links, with Brighton town centre just 1.2miles away.

Access is via a communal entrance and the property benefits from a secure entryphone system, lift and on-street parking for permit holders. The apartment is well laid out with all rooms opening from a generous central entrance hallway with a convenient storage cupboard. Neutral décor and high ceilings throughout afford a sense of space and light, particularly in the spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining room which features a substantial bay window and charming character fireplace. The kitchen is appointed with a variety of modern storage units, tiled splashback and an integrated oven, hob and extractor fan, plus space for further appliances.

Both bedrooms feature built-in storage and share a family bathroom with an integrated bath and overhead shower. A large sash window allows plenty of light into the master bedroom, whilst ample sliding door wardrobes mean that you only need to put a bed and side tables into it. The smaller second bedroom could equally be used as a study or nursery and has access direct out onto the fire escape, which the current owners use to sit out on and watch the sunset from across the pretty rooftop outlook.

Situation

The Drive is a landmark avenue that runs from Hove Recreation Ground in the north, all the way down to Grand Avenue and the seafront, providing a direct route to Hove Lawns and the beach. Brighton city centre is just over a mile away. Hove Park and Hove Rec are readily accessible, with the South Downs a short drive away. There are several local supermarkets on Church Road, just 0.3miles away as well as independent shops and popular cafes and bars. Hove Station is 0.6 miles away with direct services to London and Gatwick Airport.

Additional Information

The vendor advises charges as follows:

Freeholders permission may be sought to install an independent heating & hot water system, as has been done by other flats in the building, post completion.

Service & Maintenance charge per annum = £2992.38 including communal heating, communal hot water and buildings insurance.
