“We have lived happily here for 25 years and enjoyed every moment. The location is ideal, being able to walk to the beach within ten minutes and able to drive into the countryside within 15.”
Jenny and Andy, current owners of Kenton Road
This immaculately presented family home on Kenton Road sits within the popular New Church Road area of West Hove and Portslade. Within easy reach of green spaces, a bustling high street, local schools, and the seafront, it’s easy to see what makes this home our property of the month.
Enviable period features
A beautiful mix of modern and traditional, the Kenton Road property stands larger than most in the area thanks to its two-storey side extension and presents plenty of versatile spaces over three floors. There is an abundance of desirable features throughout, including parquet flooring in the open kitchen-dining space, high ceilings, stunning original fireplaces, bay windows and wooden beams. Paired with clean and minimal interiors, there’s plenty of scope for you to put your stamp on this charming property.
Flexible spaces for living, working, and socialising
Five bedrooms and separate dining and reception rooms creates additional flexibility as far as how you might use the space, easily accommodating modern needs for working or learning from home, whilst also moments away from Portslade mainline station. Less than a ten-minute stroll will take you to many local businesses, essential shops, services, and cafes.
Damien Dunford, Branch Manager for Portslade, adds “Since the outbreak of Covid-19 a lot of families have re-assessed what’s important to them in regard to living space and we have found that even more people have decided to move out of London, as well as the more central areas of Brighton and Hove, looking for more space, bigger gardens, and off-road parking. Having a mainline station, the beach, and Hove lagoon minutes away is also a big draw.
A substantial garden can be reached via the breakfast and reception rooms, with plenty of space for children and pets to run about and opportunities to make the most of the great outdoors.”
What the current owners say
“The house and area have been perfect for raising a family, being in such a central yet quiet part of Hove. There is a real sense of community in the locality, with many families having lived here for a similar length of time. We will be sad to move on!”
