This substantial detached Edwardian residence has considerable character and substantial proportions with a lovely, mature, southerly facing garden and off-road parking for approximately three cars to the front. It is located in the centre of Hove in a quiet, tree lined and very sought after cul de sac in the Vallance conservation area and is within a short distance of Hove lawns, the seafront, swimming pool and Church Road with its shopping thoroughfare and restaurants. Hove mainline railway station is also close by with direct links to London.
This handsome and imposing property was built circa 1908 on the former Hove Manor Estate and has been owner-occupied by very few families since 1927. Externally the house features Arts and Crafts style, decorative tile-hung, hipped and timber framed gabled bays, walls of Southwater engineering bricks, corbelled chimneys, fleur de lys finials and a tiled and timber railed porch. The gravelled drive is surrounded on three sides by a walled and pillared formal garden and iron railings with tipped finials.
Internally the home enjoys a wealth of original Art Nouveau features complemented by sympathetic restoration. These include fine, good sized reception rooms with high decorated ceilings including a 34 foot approx lounge and separate drawing room, a breakfast room overlooking the garden, eight stunning fireplaces, stained glass windows, panelled doors and finger plates and black/white tiling and dado rails in vestibule, cloakroom and bathroom. All of which create a real sense of grandeur.
The garden is a southerly facing oasis of calm in the centre of Hove which attracts birdlife, and has an easily maintained lawn surrounded by mature ornamental and exotic trees including Fig and Magnolia.
This is a well preserved, six bedroom Edwardian masterpiece of domestic architecture. Few homes have the convenience, period features, and elegance that this property offers and the lifestyle options that are available in this unique south coast environment in the heart of Hove.
