What the owner says....
We love living so close to everything in and around Hove surrounded by the most wonderful neighbours and a real sense of community. Just a few minutes walk to the park is perfect for our young family in addition to the proximity to such great schools. We enjoy the period features of the house, the light and airy feel and find it a great space for hosting.”
