Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Dating back to the mid-1800s, Montpelier Villas was designed by the renowned A H Wilds. Behind its distinctive whitewashed facade and wrought iron railings this well-presented four storey home offers a hugely flexible layout that retains a wealth of original period character.

On the ground floor an impressive entrance hallway opens, via double doors, into a beautiful, dual aspect sitting room with regency marble fireplace, floor to ceiling bow windows with original shutters onto a wrought iron balcony. Along the hall, the generous dining room, with its own charming bow window, is ideal for entertaining, being adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen itself is fitted with shaker-style units and amply accommodates a breakfast table. Upstairs, the first floor is split level; on the upper level is a bright principal bedroom, again with bow window, whilst across the hallway is a large multi-purpose room with striking wood panelling and brick fireplace, likely a later 20s/30s addition. It would work equally well as a bedroom, office or drawing room.

The lower level houses a contemporary family bathroom with bath and walk-in shower. A staircase also leads up to the second floor and a further double bedroom with large storage area, which has scope to become a walk-in wardrobe and/or en-suite subject to consents.


Steps lead off the path on both sides to two low maintainance garden and patio spaces extending across the front and side of the house. Mature palms, shrubs and trees border the lawn that provides space to sit and relax in the sun. There are two under-pavement storage spaces on the lower ground floor.


Montpelier Villas is an elegant, tree-lined avenue in the beautiful Montpelier and Clifton Conservation Area. Brighton city centre is just a block and a half away, whilst Brighton mainline train station is 0.5 miles distant. Nearby Dyke Road provides access to the A27, A23 and Gatwick. Local schooling options include Brighton Girls GDST, Brunswick Primary School and BHASVIC.

Additional Information

The lower ground floor remains integral to the house, with staircase in situ and a private front door, offering potential for rental income, or simply as a guest annexe. The configuration offers either three bedrooms and a bathroom, or with the addition of a kitchen could be a one-bedroom self-contained flat.
