Guide price £950,000 - £1,000,000. This detached family home in Rottingdean features four bedrooms, spacious living areas, and a private garden. Situated a short walk from amenities, it offers historical charm and natural beauty. Ideal for living in a picturesque village setting.

The Property

Once a bungalow, this detached family home has been extended over the years to create a spacious four-bedroom house. Situated on a corner plot, with garden space on three sides of the house and a driveway, it is located on a road adjacent to the prestigious Dean Court Road in the historic village of Rottingdean.

As you enter the property you are met with a spacious hallway with several cupboards - including a place to store coats by the front door. Off the hallway is a bright living room, which leads into a sunroom overlooking the garden. On the ground floor, there are also two bedrooms, with substantial wardrobe storage space, and a family bathroom with underfloor heating. The bedroom at the front of the house has sliding doors that lead out into the garden.

At the side of the house is a spacious dual-aspect kitchen with sliding doors leading out to a patio with space for a table for al-fresco dining. The modern wooden kitchen boasts a centre island with bar stools, a Stoves double oven, and an American-style fridge/freezer. There’s also a large log burner with a space for seating in front.

The first floor offers views over the rooftops of Rottingdean and across to the iconic Rottingdean Windmill, which stands proudly on Beacon Hill Nature Reserve. The upstairs accommodation is shared between two bedrooms, one of which currently contains an office space (which could be made into an additional bedroom). There’s also an en-suite bathroom, and an additional bathroom at the end of the hallway. Unique asymmetrical doors add character to the space, as well as practicality.

Outside, the private garden provides a sanctuary in the warmer months. Newly decked stairs lead down to a patio area perfect for outdoor seating. Beds provide a home for plants and a bar provides a space for entertaining friends and family.

This property is Freehold and the council tax band is F.

The Area

Nestled along the East Sussex coastline, Rottingdean boasts a unique blend of history and natural beauty. The High Street, with its cafes, boutique shops, grocery store, and local butchers, is lined with charming cottages that lead to the village’s centrepiece - a tranquil duck pond. Scattered throughout the village, traditional pubs offer a cosy respite, serving up delicious food and local brews.

Surrounded by scenic trails and the South Downs National Park, Rottingdean is well-situated for nature lovers. Beacon Hill Nature Reserve and Rottingdean Windmill are a short walk away from the property. The nearby seafront and Undercliff Walk offer breathtaking views of the coastline and white cliffs. Its proximity to Brighton, which is just a stone’s throw away, provides easy access to city amenities. Rottingdean's allure lies in its quaint village charm, scenic walks, and proximity to both nature and urban delights.


Apple Tree Nursery is a six-minute walk away and two good primary schools, St Margarets and Our Lady of Lourdes, are both a seven-minute walk away. The nearest secondary school is Longhill High School, which can also be reached on foot. Local independent schools include Brighton College and Roedean.

Transport Links

Situated to the east of Brighton & Hove's city centre, this property is conveniently accessible via a fifteen-minute drive along the scenic A259 coast road. Additionally, it benefits from excellent transport connections, including a reliable bus service that whisks you to the city centre in under thirty minutes. The A27, reachable within a ten-minute drive, offers convenient access to destinations such as Lewes in the east, and further links to the A23, Crawley, and London to the north. Gatwick Airport can be reached in just forty minutes by car, while Heathrow Airport is a slightly longer journey of approximately an hour and a half.
