The Property

Designed by the famous Regency architect AH Wilds and built in1845, this semi-detached Grade II listed house makes the perfect family home. Located next to its twin in one of the most prestigious areas in Brighton & Hove, close to all the shops, pubs and restaurants the city has to offer, it is quietly tucked away in the heart of town.

As soon as you walk up to the front door and pull the bell handle doorbell, you are met with the elegance of this home. The impressive hallway, with its 3.5m (approx) tall ceiling, welcomes you into the house and its many rooms. To the right, the drawing room invites you in with its large bay window, iconic wrought iron balcony and statement chandelier light. Although currently being used as an art and music room, it could be turned into a spacious bedroom, adding to the four others to make this a five bedroom house. To the left is the living room with its magnificent black stone fireplace, with working gas fire, and ample space for all to enjoy. Through the living room, and with separate access off the hall, is the study. Overlooking the garden at the back of the house, it is a wonderfully peaceful space to focus or relax in.

Downstairs on the lower ground floor, the kitchen offers a fantastic space for entertaining family and friends. An island with bar stools takes centre stage and offers a sociable space to keep the cook company. The original flagstones underfoot contrast beautifully with the modern kitchen appliances - which can all be negotiated with the purchase of the house. Through the kitchen is an open plan dining area which could be the site of many a family feast. Double doors lead out to a generous west facing walled garden, a bonus in central Brighton. Beyond the patio is a grassed area which offers plenty of space for children to play in. A separate utility room adds additional functionality to this downstairs space.

A bedroom and en-suite, with Pegasus whirlpool bath, is also tucked away on the lower ground floor. Perfect for use as a guest suite or for inter-generational living, it has large built-in cupboards and an additional walk-in wardrobe. The original ornate fireplace stands proudly in the room and adds to its charm.

Up the winding staircase to the first floor you will find two bedrooms and two jack and jill style en-suite bathrooms. The principal bedroom overlooks the tree-lined road and is bathed in morning sun through the bay windows. Built-in walnut wardrobes offer ample storage and the en-suite bathroom, which is lined in Travertine marble, provides a hint of luxury. Here you can relax in the freestanding talon foot tub, or enjoy the walk-in power shower.

At the very top of this grand house is the final bedroom and modern en-suite bathroom with shower. Tucked away on its own at the top of a set of stairs and overlooking the garden, this bedroom offers tranquillity away from the rest of the house.

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