Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
This characterful property has a most desirable setting on Ditchling Road with an open aspect to the front over the very lovely Hollingbury Park and woods, with distant views towards the sea. The property is believed to be 1930 and features a wealth of original design elements, including wall panelling, wooden doors and character fireplaces. These have been incorporated into a more modern interiors scheme, which is mostly neutral and offers excellent potential for further improvement and personalisation. The accommodation is extremely spacious, extending to over 4700 sq ft including extensions and the garaging, which has conversion potential. The house is well planned, with generous room size and an excellent flow making it feel airy and bright. The choice of reception rooms, for both formal and family use, make it a fantastic family home that's well equipped for entertaining.

On the ground floor, a partially glazed porch opens to an impressive entrance hallway which is panelled to picture rail height and features complementary doors and a staircase. The hallway leads to a 20ft sitting room, a separate dining room/snug and an open plan kitchen/breakfast room appointed with fabulous contemporary wall and base units and a range cooker. From here there are doors to a utility room and a stunning conservatory which overlooks the beautiful rear gardens. Also on the ground floor is an annexe bedroom, which has a shower, cloakroom and sauna, and could also be used as a gym or studio.

Upstairs the principal bedroom has ample fitted storage and an en suite bath/shower room. The four additional bedrooms are all well sized and share a family bathroom, shower room and separate w.c. There is also access to a first-floor balcony with sea views.

Virtual Tour available on request.


The property is set within a generous corner plot and is approached over a paved in-and-out driveway. There is ample parking to the front and access to two separate garages: one to the front, and the second accessed to the side from Hollingbury Copse. There are attractively landscaped gardens to the front and rear, the latter also having a paved patio for garden furniture, a swimming pool, a good size lawn and a variety of well-stocked flowerbeds and borders.


The property is situated on this popular residential tree lined road which has excellent access to walking at Hollingbury Park, the woodland, sports pitches and allotments. It is close to the favourable 'Golden Triangle' area with easy access to Fiveways where there is good shopping and restaurants. There are a number of local schools including Varndean College, Dorothy Stringer, Balfour Primary and St Joseph's. Nearby London Road is one of Brighton and Hove's main thoroughfares and offers excellent access to the A27 or A23 for commuting to London and Gatwick Airport, plus an array of local shops and services. Preston Park station is 1.4 miles and has services to London Bridge/Victoria. The centres of Brighton and Hove are both accessible on foot or by car and have plentiful shopping and leisure facilities. The seafront, with its attractive promenade and popular beaches can be found to the south, with the countryside of the South Downs to the north.
