The approach to this property via a chequered pathway is one of style and character. As you enter, a hallway allows access to all ground floor rooms. The double reception room and dining room are open plan with superb proportions and feature a plethora of the most fantastic period detailing including original wood floors, tall skirtings, cornices, ceiling roses and sash windows. There are also two lovely feature fireplaces in these rooms. A quite special original floor to ceiling window with low rise doors allows access onto the garden from here.
The extended and contemporary kitchen is light, bright and airy and affords plenty of space to cook, dine and entertain and is a great family space. From here, doors lead out onto delightful, low maintenance and secluded sunny West facing garden.
There are three nicely sized bedrooms on the first floor with the master having an ensuite. The wide landing ascends to the second floor where a further three bedrooms can be found complete with an additional family bathroom.
Worthy of mention is the ability, ( stnc) to create off-road parking and to extend further.
The property itself, with grand proportions, offers a wonderful feeling of space and light. Seconds from the seafront, this rarely available six-bedroom home boasts in excess of 2,600 square feet and is a must-see!
Westbourne Villas is a popular area due to its proximity to the seafront and Esplanade. Located between New Church Road and Kingsway, a short distance to the amenities on Church Road. Brighton College, Roedean and Lancing Prep are just some of the excellent schools nearby.
What the owner says...
This is a beautiful, airy, period house with features we have lovingly restored to enjoy the wealth of character.
It has been a great property for our family, giving our children bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor has allowed us plenty of freedom as they became teenagers and young adults. We found access to really good Schools was brilliant, never mind the Universities of Sussex and Brighton.
Only a minutes’ walk to the beach and family made Italian ice-cream was a must when the children were growing.
The house has easily accommodated visits by our friends and family, both locally and internationally without them needing to find a hotel.
Parties inside have been great. The garden and patio area can make summer days an occasion.
Regular walks into Brighton have been a rewarding routine. Cycling to Worthing and Rottingdean for a coffee is made easy by national cycle paths.
As our children are moving on it is now time for a move. We will take so many happy memories of Westbourne with us.
