Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
This attractive, detached home with parking and large, double garage is a real gem. Tucked away on a popular, tree-lined avenue, between Dyke Road and Hove Park, the proportions are generous, with two lovely reception rooms and large eat-in kitchen. Perfectly positioned for Mowden School and the "Pav & Ave" tennis club, this elegant family home has a wonderful sense of space and could be extended still further into a large loft.

Behind its charming 1930s period façade, the welcoming central entrance hall gives a great first impression, with original staircase sweeping up to a large landing above, and a guest cloakroom and cupboard off it. To the right is the door into the garage with space to park a car (or two!), or ideal as a workshop or gym. Off to the left at the front is a large study, with an exceptionally large sitting room and separate dining room at the rear. Both reception rooms feature large bay windows with glorious views over a beautifully maintained south-easterly garden, French doors from the sitting room onto the paved terrace. At the far end is a generous kitchen with separate utility room and breakfast room, which in turn opens out onto the garden via another set of French doors.

The period charm continues upstairs where five impressive double bedrooms provide ample space for the whole family and with views across the garden to the sea in the distance from those at the rear. The generous, dual-aspect principal bedroom with its modern en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes is a delight, whilst bedrooms two and three each have their own built-in storage. The remaining two double bedrooms have ample space for free-standing storage. The library, historically perhaps the sewing room, provides the option of conversion to a shower room. Well designed and impeccably maintained, the large family bathroom features a glazed shower cubicle, separate bath and vanity unit.


The house sits well back from the road with its attractive covered doorway, behind thoughtfully landscaped mature flowering shrubs and bushes, providing privacy and a verdant outlook. Wonderfully established and cleverly trained Wisteria vines stretch along the roof-line of the garage and down the side of the house. To one side a drive provides off-road parking for several vehicles.

The tranquil, south-easterly facing garden is the perfect space to relax and entertain, with high hedges and trees providing privacy and seclusion. The expansive lawn is framed by colourful flowerbeds with an Indian Bean tree providing a shady haven to one side. At the far end are a pretty pond and well-stocked vegetable garden with greenhouse and useful shed.


Conveniently positioned, Onslow Road offers excellent access to the city centre, the South Downs, and the A23 and A27. The property is just 0.5 miles from Preston Park train station, with regular direct services to London and Gatwick Airport. Waitrose supermarket and Hove Park, with its range of sporting and leisure amenities, are close by and local schools include Mowden School (Lancing Preparatory), Windlesham School and Nursery, Hove Junior School, Cottesmore St Mary's School Primary School, Cardinal Newman Catholic School, Hove Park School and Sixth Form, and BHASVIC.
