From the chequered tiled floor of its wide central hallway to the cast iron radiators and heritage hues of a Farrow & Ball and Little Greene palette, the cohesive design themes of this exquisitely renovated home impeccably enhance its original features.
Step inside and you’ll find a breath-taking reception room lit by wide bow windows with a wood burning stove that creates a lovely warming atmosphere for evening entertaining. Equally discerning, a double aspect office with panelled walls and a distinguished fireplace proffers a huge degree of versatility. The expansive Shaker kitchen/dining room blends Mandarin Stone tiles and extra deep quartz countertops with bespoke oak finishes, while sets of French doors connect with the terracing. Arranged around a commodious central island with bar stool seating, the kitchen area is appointed with Neff appliances, and a matching utility room is fully fitted. A tranquil studio and a stylish wetroom complete the ground floor.
Upstairs on the first floor a magnificent principal bedroom with further bow windows has a luxuriously large en suite with a sumptuous resin stone bathtub, walk-in shower and artisan tiles from the Baked Tile Company. Three additional bedrooms share a glorious wetroom with a waterfall shower and contemporary inset bath. Adding to the immense sense of space, a fifth bedroom with access to an eaves/workshop sits on the top floor offering far-reaching vistas from its expanse of glazing. The studio and first floor bathrooms all benefit from underfloor heating.
Complementing the sense of style that flows through the house, a west-facing garden is an idyllic escape from the world outside. Engendering an easy flowing extension of the kitchen/dining room it creates a coveted amount of space in which to relax. Tiered terracing steps down to an established lawn, enticing you to unwind on a landscaped seating area amidst coastal palms. A detached garage and brick paved driveway supply prized off-road parking.
“We instantly fell in love with the location. Having the seafront just minutes away made all the difference. Carlisle Road was named as the ‘Best Road in Hove’ last year and it’s only just across the way from all the independent stores, butcher, deli, and coffee shops of Richardson Road.
During the renovations we changed the layout of the back of the house to give it a light and spacious feel and it opens onto one of the widest gardens on Carlisle Road. It’s incredibly sunny out there and because of its size gets the sun almost all day long. Being able to sit out there and hear the sea roar is amazing.”
