Unique is a word used too often when selling property but in this case it is relevant and applicable. This superb three bedroom family home has been in the family for many years, and can be found tucked away in the very heart of Hove, close to the extensive range of independent shops, bars and restaurants, also within easy reach of Hove seafront. The property was built in the early 1800’s and is perhaps better known for having been Brighton & Hove’s main Fire Station. It is a striking looking property with a unique design incorporating a central terrace with “wings” joining either end. Whilst it is steeped in history and has many original features the current owners have sympathetically modernised and successfully moulded period features with a contemporary twist. The house is presented superbly throughout and will provide an interesting home for the right buyers looking for a lifestyle choice that gives them a fabulous location within easy reach of everything they should need, generous accommodation and some beautiful features to enjoy.

The entrance hall gives you a flavour of what to expect and the high quality finish throughout is obvious straight away. The generous lounge is beautifully and tastefully decorated with a feature bay window to the front and this then leads on to the modern kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is extensively fitted and includes features such as parquet flooring, semi-circular breakfast bar as well as many integrated appliances and a range cooker. The breakfast area allows for comfortable seating and table for informal dining.

The main dining room, to the left of the entrance hall as you come in, is a striking room decorated boldly and with a feature wall providing display space for a large wine collection. This is a superb room to host your dinner party. The ground floor is also complemented with a generous cloakroom/downstairs WC.

First floor accommodation is approached by a feature staircase complete with glass balustrade and comprises main bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom, boasting a stunning free standing bath, step in shower cubicle, wash hand basin and low level WC.

The outstanding feature of this unique house is the private terrace that adjoins the two wings of the house, glass balustrades to both sides ensures that you get the maximum benefit of the sun all year round and there is ample room for garden furniture to entertain. At the other end of the terrace is a quirky extra bedroom/reception room with bi-fold doors and high ceiling, the room is currently being used as a sunroom, but has been used as an office and gym.

To the front of the house is private allocated parking allowing you to get your car off the road and tucked away out of view. This beautiful property will provide a fabulous home to the right buyer and viewings are highly recommended so that you can appreciate the many benefits of living here.
