A stunning and wonderfully appointed, double fronted, detached Victorian villa of considerable character located on a treelined avenue in this highly sought area of Hove. Seconds from the seafront, this rarely available five-bedroom home boasts in excess of 3,300 square feet and is a must-see! The approach to this home on Westbourne Villas is simply breathtaking. Exuding elegance and style, the original terracotta tiled path leads to the impressive front door.
The entrance to this home is both warm and inviting. The double reception room is light, bright and airy. Stylish plantation shutters, stripped wood flooring and lovely feature fireplaces create a perfect space to relax and unwind. The room also benefits from bi-folding doors that allow the room to be separated. This room, in turn, leads to a bright atrium-style space which is ideal for dining with French doors that lead onto the garden. The kitchen, accessed via the atrium, is well equipped with plenty of workspace and room for dining. From here there is an additional reception room currently used as a snug and playroom. To enhance the house’s period charm the current owners have recently added Victorian schoolroom style radiators and plantation shutters throughout. On the ground floor there is also a WC and utility cupboard.
The first floor has four well proportioned double bedrooms and a large single room which interconnects into the adjacent bedroom, ideal to create an ensuite or dressing room. There is also a family bathroom and an ensuite to the master. Worthy of mention is the scope to convert the loft area (STNC) into a further two double bedrooms and bathroom. Plans available on request. Outside is a sunny and low maintenance west facing garden. A perfect oasis of calm and tranquillity. Further benefits include a large full height cellar, off-road parking for two cars and an integrated garage.
Westbourne Villas is ideally located for the local amenities of Hove's various neighbourhoods.
We have loved living so close to the sea and to town, Brighton, but also to Hove’s neighbourhoods and independent shops. When we go out in the evening we walk along Church Road or along the seafront into Brighton. As our children have got older they have appreciated the independence of being so close to the city bus routes to town, school and the station. As a family we have spent many happy hours wandering down to Hove Lagoon for the playground and watersports. The ability to park so easily this close to a city centre has been a huge advantage of this location that we may not be able to replicate! And we’ll miss the light as this is one of the widest streets in the city.
