Brighton and Hove is one of the most sought after residential areas in the UK and this substantial property is located in a prestigious and exclusive part of the city. Withdean Road is a beautiful tree lined location which is renowned for its wonderful houses and this is arguably the finest property in the road.
Set in its own grounds the house is approached via a carriage driveway behind electric gates. As you drive up to the main house you pass a self-contained flat above the first double garage, this would be perfect for an au pair or nanny or alternatively an older son or daughter. There is a second self-contained flat which can be found close to the entrance as you come into the grounds of the house. There are extensive grounds with a combination of lawn and established trees and shrubs surrounding all four sides of the property providing a high degree of privacy.
On approaching the house itself the impressive entrance hall is approached via double solid wooden doors. The entrance hall with impressive stone walls, stone staircase and wooden flooring gives you a stately home feel before you move on to the lounge with its extremely impressive beamed ceiling and wood burner.
The property successfully blends a very traditional feel in places with a more contemporary ambience in others. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully proportioned with bi-folding doors leading to the garden at the rear. The kitchen is bathed in light via the two beautiful glazed atriums. The downstairs accommodation is complimented by a dining room, further reception room and private office overlooking the garden.
The indoor swimming pool complex also consists of a sauna, Jacuzzi, shower and changing facilities as well as a poolside bar, tiled flooring and adjoining games room.
The first floor accommodation is no less impressive with a galleried landing complete with solid oak balustrade. There are nine bedrooms in total, all of which are doubles and many with en-suite facilities.
On the top floor you have your own spacious cinema room which has a remote controlled screen and fitted projector as well as two further glazed atriums providing plenty of light. The main house also has a further self-contained one bedroom flat and second double garage.
The grounds surround the house and provide a large area laid to lawn with extensive and mature trees and shrubs and even comes with your very own purpose built tree house!
