This beautiful family home benefits from original period features and tastefully designed modern interventions. Existing cornicing, balustrading and the central fireplace sits comfortably alongside a well-considered modern kitchen/family room extension, utilising appropriate and high-quality materials. You can literally move straight in without the need for time-consuming, costly and disrupting renovations as this work has already been carried out to a very high standard.
This is the perfect family home to sit back and enjoy for many years to come. With multiple schools within a short distance, and great cafes, high quality butchers and bakers and other shops right on your doorstep, this really is an ideal family location.
The front façade of the house sits elegantly onto the street with contrasting red and buff bricks and an arch and ornate-work above the front door, framed by a wonderful evergreen tree. The front garden has been carefully planted to ensure privacy and separation from the street, whilst still allowing ample light into the front of the house. A low-level, secure bike shed, with room for four adult-sized bikes, has been carefully sited to one side of the garden.
The front door is the original, with stained glass, and has been moved forward to create a porch inside for coats and shoes. The porch floor has been tastefully retiled and benefits from underfloor heating. Once inside the house, a solid hardwood parquet floor leads through the wide entrance hallway and into the reception rooms, making for an elegant entrance into the house.
This delightful family home has four spacious bedrooms arranged over the first and second floor. However the hub of the home is, without a doubt, the family area, incorporating the kitchen and dining area, along with living room. It is a perfect area for you, your family and friends to gather, relax in and make full use of the space. The kitchen area has been tastefully and uniquely designed, using restored worktops sourced in London and a re-purposed church altar as a kitchen island, and with a stunning exposed brick wall. The kitchen has been designed to allow space for a large fridge/freezer and the current owners have added a drinks fridge in the storage under the island. The kitchen units incorporate an integrated dishwasher and space for a microwave oven. Under-floor heating provides for a cosy space during the colder months, to take the chill off.
Tri-fold doors lead out onto the raised barbeque deck and into the peaceful west-facing garden, which allows the sun to flood into the kitchen throughout the morning. A sun deck is located at the rear of the garden which catches sun throughout the afternoon and into the early evening. In the wonderfully private rear garden, you have peaceful views of St. Matthias Church which is four doors away and has a popular church hall which hosts fetes, Yoga/Pilates classes and can also be used for childrens parties and other gatherings.
If you are looking for a place to escape to in the evenings and to relax and unwind from a busy day, the current owners have kept the front reception room separate from the rest of the ground floor. This space also makes the perfect area for a home office / separate TV room.
The first floor offers three good size bedrooms with the main bedroom to the front of the house. Also, on this level you will see a good size family bathroom with bath and overhead shower. To create more storage in the kitchen the washing machine and dryer has been placed into the same cupboard as the boiler, so it is all hidden and nicely tucked away. There is also another double bedroom on the second floor in the converted attic space, with plenty of storage in the eaves and velux windows.
Fiveways is a fabulous place to live, with amazing local amenities and easy connections into the city centre only a short ride away. London Road railway station is a 10-minute walk away, and from there it is a short journey to Brighton Station. Preston Park station, on the main line to London, is a little further. Hollingbury golf course is up the road, allowing walking /cycling access through it and directly into the South Downs National Park. Artists open houses run through the spring months along with summer fairs and street parties in Blakers Park and the surrounding streets, cultivating a fantastic local community atmosphere.
