Why you'll like it:
Delivering the best of all worlds between the South Downs National Park and the sea, Preston Village is a sought after area of our fabulous coastal metropolis with an easy going, unpretentious vibe and all the local amenities you need. Popular with professionals and families as it is far more convenient than its leafy setting suggests, the city centre is easy to reach within a few minutes – and you can get out of the city very easily, too- making Gatwick about a 30-40 minute drive.
Set amongst well-tended trees and gardens, this exclusive development is designed for privacy from the other homes within it and lining a secret cul de sac in a tucked away no through road, it is also remarkably secure. This apartment is in a quiet block towards the back with only two apartments on each floor, and the smart front entrance has an answer phone system and lit glazed door leading to a clean and cared for hallway.
Up at the top of a staircase on the second floor, this apartment spans the full depth of the building from east to west. Inside, the long hallway is inviting with light coming in from both sides, and storage has been carefully considered with deep double cupboards tucked away.
With a fabulous 20'3'' x 18'2'' (6.17m x 5.54m) to play with, the big bright living room has both a broad window and tall glass panel almost filling the west wall, as well as a window in a second wall looking over a sea of gardens. L shaped, it may well unleash your inner developer as subject to consents – and the apartment is share of freehold- it would be easy to divide this space into two rooms which would still be bright, roomy and cheerful. Tastefully decorated and elegant as it is, it is a welcoming haven to return to and the double glazing ensures it is welcoming at any time of year. Next door, a well-organised kitchen has a timeless pairing of blonde units and dark, practical work surfaces with a sociable bar for breakfast for two. Well planned, you could ramp up the glamour if you wanted over time as everything flows from a central 5 ring gas hob and discreet hood and good to go, an electric oven and grill are at eye level, whilst a fridge, freezer and dishwasher are also integrated for you.
Central to the apartment, a chic, contemporary bathroom has a shower above a shaped bath, and other touches of luxury include an opaque glass cabinet and heated rail for towels. Opposite each other rather than side by side – which is good if you are going to share or work from home- both stylish bedrooms are generous doubles each ready to move into with lit, fitted wardrobes and soothing, open views which change with the seasons.
"This exclusive location is leafy and quiet with a nice community feel close to, but out of hearing of London Road which takes you into or out of the city in minutes. With scope to create a third bedroom, subject to consents, it is a wise, share of freehold, chain free buy by the station which will appeal to professionals, small families and investors."
"It does feel like a tranquil oasis when you turn into the grounds, and if you spend time away we have found it easy to rent as it is a short walk to the station, shops and sports facilities at Preston Park, and there is rare onsite parking for a small extra charge."
