This simply stunning and generous four-bedroom Victorian house with garden has been beautifully renovated throughout. Situated within the ever-popular Golden Triangle district of Brighton, any future resident would benefit from having the very best the city has on offer on their doorstep.
Arriving through the entrance vestibule, the hallway provides access to all rooms. The two original reception rooms have been cleverly opened to give a large entertaining space, and there is an immediate feeling of calm as you enter. The rear kitchen diner is beautifully finished, benefiting from a thoughtfully designed cooking area and kitchen island to give a natural divide in what is a great size room. Bi-folding doors lead to the landscaped garden, which the owner informs us is a suntrap in the summer months.
To the rear of the garden is the studio which can also be accessed without coming through the house, through a gated twitten. It works well as a private office as well as storage for bikes or paddleboards.
Three bedrooms are to the first floor, the master being to the front of the property with an abundance of space for storage and plenty of sun coming through the shutters. Both of the additional bedrooms on this floor are good sized doubles, with a family bathroom, modern in style, separating them nicely. However, the rear bedroom, currently used as a guest room, has an en-suite walk-in shower as well as a beautiful east-facing balcony on which one can enjoy a morning coffee in the coming Spring and Summer months. The loft conversion is also a good size double room with eaves storage and an en-suite toilet.
The owners have shown wonderful attention to detail when renovating the house and it is a beautifully designed, house which any new family would enjoy. Put simply, one of the best houses to come to the market this year.
Waldegrave Road is within the incredibly popular Golden Triangle, in demand from locals as well as those currently living outside of the area. Blakers Park to the top and Preston Park to the bottom gives plenty of options for entertaining your family, with Fiveways offering local independent shops and access in and out of Brighton easy via London Road/Preston Park stations and the A23/A27.
We have loved this home for the last 24 years and will be sad to leave but are really excited to pass on all we know to the future owners.
Waldegrave Road is one of the friendliest streets in Brighton, whether it's our neighbours looking out for each other (especially in the last year), stopping for a chat or going out to comedy nights with the "Women of Waldegrave" community.
Having spent significant time and energy making the house a wonderful space for us, it's time for us to leave this house to a younger family who can take advantage of the wonderful schools and community here.
The sunsets and views from the top floor are magnificent, with vistas of South Downs from one side and the sea from the other. It’s just a short walk to the station for mainline London trains and very easy to get out of Brighton if travelling by car. This combined with the pull of the sea in Brighton & Hove means we won’t be moving far
