Having travelled the world, "The Queen Mother of Tidy Street" chose this charming, two bedroom Victorian cottage as her home – and on the edge of the legendary North Laine with three storeys providing spacious, sociable rooms and a private oasis at the back, it is easy to see why. Comfortable as it is, inside is ready to become the house of your dreams with an inviting living room which has a sunny east/west orientation and a door to the garden nearby, a kitchen diner opening to a lower patio for al fresco entertaining, a large utility area with a giant cavern to explore and two bright double bedrooms at the top – one en suite. Tucked away from the crowds who flock to our world famous coastal resort and on a one way street it is quieter than its fashionable location close to boutiques, cafes and arts venues might suggest – and it is only a four minute stroll to the station, ten to our city's picturesque cultural heart and fifteen to the sea.

With a prime address this attractive house is full of light and far bigger than it looks from the outside with surprisingly spacious rooms which also have plenty of character. Inside is instantly restful with views along a bright hallway to glimpses of garden, and the rush matting by the front door and warm coloured carpet set the stylish yet practical tone of this comfortable home.

Double doors invite you through to an elegant living room of double depth which embraces the Sussex sunshine with windows at each end and which is a welcoming refuge in all seasons with a Tiger wood burner to snuggle up by.

There's an easy, social flow either down the hall stairs to the kitchen diner inside, or passing along the pretty, paved promenade of the upper walled garden to the secluded, lit patio by the dining area below. With a mood boosting, international flavour, the cheerful kitchen diner has an east wall of glass where central French doors open to the patio so guests can dine in rare seclusion whilst enjoying the garden, a large under stair area provides ample space for an extra fridge, wine cooler or freezer and the working area is skilfully tucked away from the in out movement behind a peninsular island with space to sit. Planned by an expert cook, the layout and working surfaces are user friendly with everything to hand from a central designated area for a gas oven and outside, the walled patio is scented by honeysuckle – and with room for pots and a tap to water them – it has timeless charm.

Returning inside, the spacious utility area has access to a deep under pavement cavern which provides additional storage and food for thought, and the first of the modern bathrooms has all you need including a shower attachment above the bath.

Up on the first floor, the guest bedroom is light and airy with no building directly behind and a fitted wardrobe already in place. Spanning the front of the building, the principal bedroom is a soothing sanctuary with simple but stylish decoration and a fuss free shower room with a contemporary Mira dual head shower.

Agent says:

"In one of the most sought after areas of the city, this loved period home was last on the market almost 30 years ago and has real charm inside and out."

Owner's secret:

"There is a surprising amount of space in which to entertain and we have enjoyed many happy family celebrations here over the years. The street is quiet and friendly even though the location is so convenient, and there is an active local community so you won't feel isolated if you are new to the south coast."
