This magnificent Victorian home is one of Kemp Towns hidden secrets. Situated in the heart of Kemp Town, this incredibly spacious home is ready for a sympathetic renovation to maximise its potential and to restore its character.
Sudeley House is full of history and has been a happy family home for the present owners for over fifty-six years. It is an incredibly rare opportunity to buy a period home of this size in this location, set mere moments away from the eclectic and fashionable Kemp Town village, with its expanse of independent shops, trendy cafes, restaurants, and welcoming pubs. The beautiful Brighton beach is an approximate five-minute walk away, offering glorious views and walks along the promenade. The city centre is within easy reach either on foot (approximately 20 minute walk) or via the frequent bus services at the top of Sudeley Place and on Marine Parade. Brighton College, one of the leading co-educational independent schools in the country is an approximate five-minute walk away. Residents parking permits are available in this part of Brighton without a waiting list.
As you step inside Sudeley House you are welcomed by an impressive and spacious entrance hall. To your right is the first reception room that offers a wealth of living space and period features. There is a period fireplace with marble surround, accompanied by the original wood flooring, cornicing and a high ceiling. This room also benefits from being double aspect with a particularly special bay window filling the room with natural light.
On the other side of the hallway, you will find the dining space, kitchen, and utility room. The dining room offers plenty of space with more period features including the original floorboards, a high ceiling, plus another beautiful fireplace. There is also a large window that fills the room with natural light.
The kitchen is towards the rear of the home, offering plenty of storage and worktop space. If you refer to the proposed plans, you will see the dining room, kitchen and utility room has the potential to be turned into an exceptional open plan kitchen/living space with bi-folding doors onto the west facing courtyard garden. There is side access to Sudeley Street through the gate and via the main garage door. The proposed plans would remove the garage to create a much larger west facing courtyard garden.
As you make your way back into the entrance hall, you will find access to the cellar underneath the staircase. If you refer to the plans, you will see that it could be extended into a large utility space with a useful cloakroom.
As you make your way up to the first floor, you will find a pretty window on the landing filling the staircase with natural light. On your left you will find the main living room. This room offers plenty of living space with double height ceiling and more period features including the beautiful original fireplace. This living room also benefits from being double aspect with another large bay window on the east wall and if you refer to the south elevation drawings, you will see that the plan would be to reinstate the oriel bay window on the south wall.
Just across the landing you will find the current primary bedroom, dressing room and en suite shower room. This is a fantastic space which if you refer to the plans, you will see the layout can be changed to create the perfect bedroom suite with a separate sitting/dressing area and an en suite bathroom.
As you make your way up to the second floor you will find another pretty window on the landing as well as a cloakroom. On your left you will find a large second double bedroom with a high ceiling and beautiful bay window. This room also benefits from the double aspect and a fitted internal wardrobe.
On the other side of the landing, you will find two more bedrooms and a bathroom. Currently there is an internal wall that separates the hall from the third bedroom. If you refer to the picture of the proposed plans, you will see there is potential to knock down this wall, which would help create a large double bedroom with a spacious en suite bathroom. This would also leave space for a separate home office, perfect for modern living.
The third floor of this home is the original attic room. This room has fantastic views towards the sea and east Brighton and benefits from a balcony. The proposed plans show the potential to extend the loft space creating two fantastic double bedrooms and a shower room. Alternatively, you could make the perfect home office or studio benefiting from the fantastic views and the natural light.
