With glorious views sweeping across the South Downs National Park to the sea, this tranquil three bedroom semi-detached chalet with off street parking has an unusually large, level lawn and a stylish dining terrace with lighting in the west facing garden. Inside is ideal for entertaining too as there's an elegant living room, generous conservatory and sociable kitchen all beautifully decorated and ready for your move. The location's hard to beat in Woodingdean, popular with professionals and families as local schools are good, and although it's quiet at night, Brighton and Lewes are just a 10 minute drive with Gatwick an easy commute.
Step into a sophisticated coastal lifestyle in this bright, well planned chalet which has energy efficient glazing already in place, so it's a home for all seasons. There's a porch to shelter visitors and inside, a coat cupboard is carefully tucked away.
To make the most of the garden, the spacious living room is at the back where the west wall of glass folds open to a luxurious conservatory and views of the garden. Full of sunshine it's an elegant space in which to relax or enjoy with friends and during winter this inviting room transforms into a cosy haven when you ignite the coal effect gas fire. Bringing the outside into the heart of this home, the conservatory opens to the large garden so there's an easy, social flow.
Next door, the kitchen also makes the most of the garden with a breakfast bar beneath a picture window framing the leafy view and a door leads to the lit dining terrace, making al fresco dining easy. Streamlined and stylish with three levels of lighting to choose from, this is a kitchen ready for use as all of the high spec appliances are integrated for you and include a Zanussi gas hob, electric oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer drier and with units wrapping around three walls it's also clutter free.
Outside is party perfect with a glamorous dining terrace which wraps around to the side of the house where a decked area has a Mediterranean feel and stunning views through a thoughtfully placed aperture in the front wall which is high enough to ensure the garden remains secure for children and pets. The lawn is large, and surprisingly hard to find in a city built on hills, it is also level and big enough for ball games. Bordered by mature shrubs planted for all year interest it's a serene idyll where it's easy to forget that the buzz of Brighton is only a brief drive.
Returning inside, the first of the double bedrooms has restful views over rolling Downland to the sea, it is very private as there's no house directly opposite and with all the wardrobes you could wish for it is waiting for your move. Across the hallway guests can enjoy the beautiful Sussex countryside in a refined formal dining room which could also be a comfortable study.
Upstairs, two double bedrooms each have plenty of character of their own, tasteful decoration and under eave storage. The first faces east for the morning light and has soothing views over the South Downs National Park whilst the other enjoys a glittering seascape beyond rolling hills and famous landmark of Rottingdean Mill.
Big, bright and beautifully presented you have the best of all worlds with The South Downs National Park and the sea on your doorstep, quiet nights but easy access to the city."
