Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
An impressive entrance hallway, beyond the useful lobby, gives a great first impression. Off to either side are a separate family room, currently used as a games room, and the erstwhile garage and large adjoining workshop. At the rear of the house, is an effortlessly cool, double height kitchen and dining area, with an expanse of double-glazed, Scandinavian, sliding glazed doors, opening out onto a deep, full-width, covered terrace with built-in chimenea. The kitchen and diner combine, via a short staircase and open gallery, with the sitting room on one side and a study or reading library area on the other, making for a fantastic split-level space, with each zone retaining its own sense of separation. In the centre of the house are a separate utility room and guest WC.

Upstairs does not disappoint; the vaulted principal suite with its own walk-through dressing room, deluxe en-suite bathroom and panoramic views from a private Juliet balcony is a particular highlight. The second bedroom has an en-suite of its own, while the other has a fabulous mezzanine bedroom level. A further smaller bedroom and exemplary family bathroom complete the accommodation.


Set back from the road behind the beach-themed garden and driveway with ample off-street parking, the striking brick and render facade with its anthracite framed windows and front door give fantastic kerb appeal, and a promise of the superb design elements within. A single garage and large adjacent workshop provide excellent scope for storage and/or enclosed parking.

At the rear of the house, the exceptional, canopied terrace off the kitchen extends the family living space into the garden and makes al fresco dining and entertaining simple, whatever the British weather may throw at you. Beyond the terrace, the large well-established, roughly south-westerly, lawn is beautifully bordered by an array of mature shrubs, trees and statuesque conifers, which give an verdant backdrop, as well as great privacy and seclusion. Both the large store/workshop and garage are accessible from both the driveway and the garden.


The house is situated on a leafy residential road close to Hove Park, within a short distance from a range of local amenities and a Waitrose supermarket. The centre of Hove and the beach are less than a mile and half away. Nearby Dyke Road gives access to the A27 and A23 and the South Downs are a short drive. Local schooling options include BHASVIC, Hove Junior School, Hove Park Secondary School and Windlesham Nursery. Hove Station is 0.5 miles with services to London and Gatwick Airport.
