If ever there was a new home to fall in love with at first sight, this has to be it. A beautifully refurbished ground-floor flat with two double-bedrooms, a fabulous sitting room, well-fitted kitchen, stylish bathroom, private west-facing garden, easy parking and newly installed gas central heating – what’s not to like!
Step inside the flat’s private front door and you will be greeted by original parquet flooring that has been expertly restored to its former glory.
To your left is the smaller of the two bedrooms, complete with a new luxury carpet that matches its equally pristine counterpart in the larger bedroom, which overlooks the garden. Either room would be ideal for anyone working from home.
Follow the parquet flooring into the spacious living room and you will find the perfect space to relax. Light and airy, it overlooks Rectory Close’s communal lawn, which separates the flats from the quiet residential road that is Glebe Villas.
Across the hallway, a separate modern kitchen with a wealth of sleek white cabinets and wood countertops offers heaps of storage and workspace. With an integrated oven and hob, its highly functional layout has space for a freestanding washing machine and offers easy access to the garden. A deep recessed cupboard houses a brand new boiler, while a fashionable matt black sink adds a stylish contrast to the white metro tiled splashbacks.
The modern family bathroom includes a full size bath with overhead electric shower, new toilet and a sizeable towel radiator. Deep hallway cupboards complete the internal layout.
Outside, mature shrubs and firs border a private garden with decking at either end of the lawn. A lockable outhouse provides ample storage.
A residents’ permit scheme ensures on-street parking directly outside Rectory Close. Not that a car is essential – the Boundary Road shops are a five-minute stroll away and a nearby bus stop offers easy access to the centre of Brighton & Hove. The sea and Hove Lagoon are also close by.
What the owner says.....
The flat has been in our family for 20 years – my mother lived there originally and she loved it. Funnily enough, the one thing she wouldn’t have liked much is the parquet floor, which we only discovered when we decided to replace the carpets after she opted to move into a care home. Mum liked hoovering too much to have been entirely happy with easy-to-care-for wood flooring!
