Every now and again a property comes along that we cannot wait to find a buyer for, this is one of those homes. The current owners have been very happy here for some time and it is simply time for them to downsize and move on, however they have done an incredible job with this house and it has been transformed into the extremely contemporary home that you see today. It has clean lines throughout and is a very light and bright house with the owners having made very clever use of glass throughout.
Tongdean Avenue is one of the most prestigious and sought after locations in Hove and this property is on the preferred south west side of the road, this means that the garden has a great aspect and being as high up as it is there are superb views across Hove to the sea. This is a lovely wide, tree lined road and it is home to some of the best houses in Brighton and Hove.
We very much hope that you will like the details and enjoy looking through the photographs but really would recommend that you come and see the house as there is no substitute for seeing this property first hand. As you can see from the pictures it is a fabulous home in a very modern style from its exterior appearance, to the wonderful glass staircase and ultra-modern fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms. Gas fired under floor heating throughout the whole house, with the exception of the swimming pool area, which is heated and dehumidified by a gas fired Heatstar system, the house has also been wired to Cat 5 standard. This house will suit a busy, modern family who don’t have time to re-style or re-furbish a home.
