Agents use phrases like unique, rarely available and must view all too often, but if ever there was a house that these terms apply to then it is this magnificent Victorian property situated directly on Hove seafront.
There are very few properties on the seafront side of the road providing the simply breath-taking views that this one does. It has a touch of old school Hollywood glamour too, with the historical blue plaque confirming that film and stage star Elizabeth Allan once lived in this beautiful house.
The superbly proportioned accommodation is arranged over five floors and from the minute you walk through the door you will be amazed by the character, original features and sheer size of the rooms. Bow fronted on the south side the amazing drawing room has parquet flooring, high ceilings and doors opening on to the terrace, with wrought iron balustrade that overlooks the large rear garden and gives you your first wonderful view of the sea.
The lower ground floor consists of a large kitchen and impressive dining room which has doors leading to the rear garden, as well as a utility room, cellar and separate WC.
The bedroom accommodation on the top two floors is hugely impressive with the master bedroom on the first floor facing directly south, offering stunning views to the sea and along the Brighton and Hove coastline. There are three further double bedrooms on the first and second floors and on the third floor you will find a family room with en-suite bathroom, sauna and bi-fold doors leading on to the balcony providing a panoramic view of the sea.
Often with houses of this type and located so centrally there is a compromise on garden, or parking, but not with this house. You will find a large south facing garden laid mainly to lawn and enclosed by flint walls on either side, mature flower and shrub borders and direct access at the rear on to the promenade and beach. There is also off road parking to the front of the house for two vehicles.Reference: 228454
