Description

Occupying a wonderfully leafy and prestigious setting on this sought-after road, this substantial detached period property offers deceptively generous accommodation arranged over three floors. The home is believed to date back to the 1930s and was later extended in the 1990s.

The property has a fabulous setting within half a mile of a mainline station and offers very well-presented interiors with a choice of four reception spaces, making it the ideal family home and well suited to the commuter. The property extends to about 3557 sq ft, with high ceilings and excellent proportions throughout.

On the ground floor, the property is entered via an entrance hall, leading to a vast sitting/dining room with triple aspect and doors leading out to a terrace overlooking the garden. Separately there is a family room, tv room and Clive Christian kitchen/breakfast room. The latter is dominated by a large central island and offers a wealth of storage and integrated appliances. On the lower ground floor there is a separate utility room with space for laundry machines, and a fabulous gym opening to the garden.

The five bedrooms are all of a good size and are arranged together on the first floor, which has a split-level design. The principal bedroom is a particular highlight, extending to 22ft with built in wardrobes, an en suite shower room and balcony to the rear overlooking the garden and the distant hills beyond. There is a further en suite guest suite and a family bathroom.

Situation

The property has a convenient location near a mainline station on this sought-after residential road of similar period properties. Nearby Dyke Road allows an easy route in and out of the city with fast access to the A27 and A23 which are just minutes away, as is the South Downs National Park. Good local state and independent schools can be found in this district, along with other amenities such as Pavilion and Avenue Tennis Club, Withdean Sports Stadium, Dyke Road Park, Preston Park and Hove Park. Locally there is a Tesco Express with several pubs and cafes in close proximity and leisure facilities including Hove Recreation Ground and Preston Park Velodrome. Brighton city centre provides excellent shopping facilities with the seafront and Hove Lawns also easily accessible. Preston Park Station (0.4 miles) is on the Brighton Line and offers fast and direct services to London and Gatwick Airport.

Outside

To the front of the property there is a tarmac driveway with space for several cars, a parcel of lawn and a number of well-established trees providing excellent seclusion in the summer months. The landscaped rear garden is arranged over a number of levels, with an expansive terrace adjoining the house and providing a delightful space from which to enjoy the view. A stone staircase leads down to a large lawn and children’s treehouse/slide, bordered by mature trees and hedging giving a high degree of privacy.
