This three storey house with a basement level on a quiet street is painted a soft lemon in keeping with the area’s tradition of cheerfully painted terraces.
On the ground floor you have to your right a spacious living and dining room, which would have been two rooms originally, they are knocked through to create a welcoming space where light streams in through the generous windows at the front and back. There is plenty of scope for entertaining and relaxing, and there are two period fireplaces adding character to this Victorian house.
Central to the home, the contemporary bathroom is a step down at the end of the hall with ingenious use of space, metro inspired tiles and a shower above the bath. The stairs then lead down into the hospitable kitchen with light wood kitchen cabinets and contrasting work tops, the space is large enough for a dining table making a great entertaining area, and then a door leads out to the west facing 'L' shaped garden. The door in the far wall opens into what is currently used as a private guest bedroom, and there is an open wardrobe area, but this front room could also be a play room or convenient home office.
Upstairs on the first floor is a landing with access to the attic, subject to necessary consents the loft could be converted to offer a master bedroom and en-suite. The second of the double bedrooms looks over the garden out to mesmerising views of the city and great sunsets and the large master bedroom at the front has a wonderfully proportioned sash window bringing in lots of natural light. There is an attractive fireplace with shelving on each side, one set with a door, and there is still room for further wardrobes as the room spans the whole of the width of the house.
Hanover is a well-regarded local community of colourful painted houses, with plenty of events and a real “love thy neighbour” feel. A good local pub is never far away and the city centre is within easy reach via the frequent bus services, and Brighton station is just over half a mile walk so takes around 15 minutes.Reference: 230704
