Perfectly placed for everything that Hove has to offer, the classic period homes of Goldstone Road offer a charming first impression. Stretching out across the top floor, the fluid layout of this stylish flat instantly generates a feeling of space, while its warm neutral tones and finishing touches demonstrate a great attention to detail.
Instantly giving a welcoming feel, the light filled hallway sets the tone for the sense of style that flows throughout and leads the way to a superb open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Beautifully lit by a trio of tall windows, this is a great place to relax and unwind. A distinguished period fireplace adds a fantastic focal point to the living/dining area against the subtle tones of a heritage green chimney breast, while timber shelves nestle within the alcoves supplying ample storage without encroaching on the floor space. This sociable and cleverly designed layout incorporates a fabulous Shaker-style kitchen that's fully fitted with an integrated oven and gas hob, and easily accommodates additional freestanding appliances. Sleek black countertops complement the tiled floor and provide plenty of workspace, and a breakfast bar delineates the room. Metro tiled splashbacks and pretty cupboard door knobs are tasteful additions.
The lovely flow of natural light and well-chosen carpets continue in each of the two double bedrooms. Equally stylish, whilst both benefit from Shaker fitted storage, the large main bedroom looks out over the neighbouring period homes while the second bedroom is hugely adaptable as a home office or guest room. Arranged in a classic white metro tile setting with a matching towel radiator, the contemporary suite of the modern bathroom includes a bathtub with an overhead shower, while rich dark blue feature tones add a sultry contrast.
What the owner says....
I'm going to really miss this flat which has been my perfect first home; it has always felt like a really safe, comfortable place to live. The sun comes pouring in to the bedroom windows for most of the day filling it with light. The living/dining space is perfect for entertaining friends and the open fire makes it so cosy in winter. The back room has been used both as a home office/guest room and as a bedroom for a lodger so is really flexible.
Being on the top floor means it's quiet, although all the neighbours are lovely anyway and those in the downstairs flats I now consider friends. The whole house is kept well maintained by a proactive freeholder which has always been really reassuring.
Goldstone Rd couldn't be better positioned between bus and train lines, the sea and Hove Park and all the shops and cafes you need on George St, I love being able to walk to everything then come home, light the fire and relax.
