As you enter, the welcoming hall has stripped wood floorboards and a high ceiling, painted wood banister offering valuable storage room under the stairs. To your left, is an elegant reception room with the box bay window framed by shutters, full of afternoon sunshine and character, it is a lovely room to entertain in. Built-in shelving in the alcoves either side of the beautiful period fireplace and when it is chilly, you can snuggle up in front of the flame-effect gas fire. Along the hall, the stylish dining room has plenty of space to play with and opening up onto a sun terrace with steps to the garden - Ideal for friends to spill out to when entertaining.

At the end of the hall is the bright and cheerful kitchen with leafy views, a traditional quarry tile floor and classic white units topped by sturdy wood work surfaces. Delft tiles tie-in with the blue and white colour scheme. There is plumbing for a washing machine and space for the freestanding gas oven that could stay. For families wanting a large open plan dining space then most would move the kitchen into the lower ground level.
Tucked discretely away, at the back, is a shower room with a Mira Vie shower so now the children are grown up, this room is used as a guest room/Airbnb. The garden is a quiet haven with a brick patio by the house, ideal for Al fresco dining, scented by a cherry tree near the arch that leads through to a child/pet friendly lawn. At the end of the garden is a small pond and there is also a secure gate to a passageway, useful for bringing bikes through.

Up on the first floor, at the top of the stairs, is an airy shower room offering a large contemporary walk-in shower with gleaming mosaic walls, a dual head system at one end and a heated rail for towels at the other. The first of the spacious double bedrooms overlooks the gardens so it is more private than usual and there is a fitted wardrobe to the side of the mantelpiece. The second double room is at the front of the house with calm décor, twin wardrobes and a period fireplace - It is ready to move into.

Next door is the home office or nursery, at the top of the house, the fourth/fifth double room is light and inviting with views that sweep from the surrounding Downland over the rooftops to beautiful glimpses of the sea.

Quiet, bright and full of character, this big four/five bedroom house offers a huge family room at its heart that opens into the sunny garden. It is close to the beach and in a convenient location with a nice community feel and a park as well as shops and cafés around the corner. You can walk to Brighton Marina’s restaurants, health club and cinemas. The Downs are only minutes away and the theatres of the Lanes are just a 5 minute cab ride. Families like the walk to the local primary and secondary schools and there’s a choice between The Steiner School, Roedean and Brighton College too. Parking is zone H and there is currently no waiting list.
