This three storey house with a basement level on the 'right' side of the street with a west facing garden and wonderful views provides a brilliant home in a popular area of Brighton. On a quiet street towards the bottom of the hill painted soft lemon in keeping with the areas tradition of cheerfully painted terraces.
The entrance from the raised steps, leads to a welcoming hallway, which opens out to a spacious living and dining room, which would have been two rooms originally. Here they are knocked through to create a large entertaining space with two period fireplaces adding character to this Victorian house, where light streams in through the generous replaced double glazed Sash windows at the front and back. Central to the home, the contemporary bathroom is a step down at the end of the ground floor hall with ingenious use of space, metro inspired tiles and a shower above the bath.
Stairs then lead down into the hospitable kitchen with white painted kitchen cabinets and contrasting work tops, the space is large enough for a dining table providing more entertaining space, with a door leading out to the west facing 'L' shaped garden which not only has space enough for a barbecue and seating but also benefits from sunlight for most of the day.
The door in the far wall opens into what is currently used as a third guest bedroom, and there is an open wardrobe area, but this front room could also be a play room or convenient home office.
Upstairs on the first floor is a landing with access to the large attic, subject to necessary consents the loft could be easily converted to offer a main bedroom and en-suite due the unusually high pitch of the roof. The second of the double bedrooms looks over the garden out to mesmerising views of the city and great sunsets and the large main bedroom at the front has a wonderfully proportioned double glazed sash window bringing in lots of natural light. There is an attractive fireplace with shelving on one side neatly closed in with a door, and there is plenty of space for further wardrobes as the room spans the whole of the width of the house.
Permit parking has been successfully introduced in this area which allows residents to park easily near their homes. This house benefits from no onward chain.
Hanover is a well-regarded local community of colourful painted houses, with plenty of events and a real love thy neighbour feel. A good local pub is never far away and the city centre is within easy reach via the frequent bus services, and Brighton station is just over half a mile walk so takes around 15 minutes.
