This detached and generously proportioned seven double bedroom home is situated in a quiet village street, within easy reach of the seafront, Southwick railway station and a wealth of local amenities.

This glorious Victorian villa has already been extensively updated and improved by the current owners, creating a stylishly presented home with excellent entertaining space, as well as a functional layout for day to day family life. Internally and externally the house benefits from gorgeous period features, including decorative ironwork, original fireplaces and stained-glass windows, complemented by a high-spec contemporary, yet sympathetic, design scheme.

Extending to over 3921 sq ft over four floors (including office and cellar), there is ample space for all the family. On the ground floor, a side entrance opens to a hallway leading to a snug, sitting room and open plan kitchen/dining room with utility area and w.c. Both the sitting and dining areas have access to the garden via French windows.

On the first floor there is a main bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite, further bedroom, study, family bathroom and laundry room. There are three-four bedrooms to top floor (one en suite).
