Set back from the road behind a classic monochrome tiled path, the richly toned wood floor of the wide hallway flows into a generously sized living room that offers a wonderful amount of space to relax and entertain. Beneath the elegant period cornicing of a high ceiling, wide bay windows with their crisp white shutters allow a lovely amount of natural light to tumble in, while a wood burning stove adds the perfect focal point. Equally well-presented, a separate dining room generates an excellent amount of versatile space.
Stretching out across the full width of the extensive ground floor, a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room and adjoining sun room is undoubtedly the heart and hub of this Hove home. An open plan layout creates a hugely sociable feel that's perfect for spending time together as a family. Fully fitted with tasteful Shaker-style cabinets, the large kitchen offers a wealth of storage and workspace and is well-appointed with an array of appliances that includes a first class range cooker. A stained glass door reminds you of the heritage of the house, and deep countertops wrap-around to form a convenient breakfast bar that delineates the space. The considerable proportions easy accommodate a large dining table and lead into the fabulous contemporary sun room with its exposed brickwork, contemporary column radiator and wall of anthracite framed bi-fold doors that make it easy to step out into the walled garden. A stylish WC completes the ground floor.
The refined sense of style and space continues on the upper two floors where five bedrooms are ideal for a growing family. Producing a peaceful retreat at the end of the day, a principal bedroom occupies the entire top floor and is beautifully lit by a great amount of triple aspect Velux windows. We love the amount of storage that the deep eaves and recessed cupboards supply without encroaching on the enviable amount of floor space, while its en suite shower room adds a touch of luxury with a waterfall shower, sleek wall-hung basin and Serpentes stainless steel designer towel radiator. On the first floor, three double bedrooms and a large single bedroom combine to offer flexible family accommodation and includes a spacious main bedroom with charming bay windows and an original period fireplace. A modern bathroom and separate shower room offer every convenience for today's busy family households.
Step out from the bi-fold doors of the contemporary sun room into a walled garden that has something for everyone. A broad paved terrace is perfect for enjoying outdoor meals or simply sitting back and relaxing with a morning coffee, while an established lawn gives space for children to play. Easy to maintain mature shrubs lend colour and interest throughout the seasons and a pretty timber summerhouse is a peaceful hideaway.
Hove mainline station is less than a mile from your door, and Church Road takes you into the hubbub of central Hove and onto Brighton city centre.
