In a most desirable setting on the edge of the North Laines and within close proximity to Brighton’s cosmopolitan centre, this charming four-storey townhouse enjoys a peaceful location within an attractive terrace on a sought-after one-way street. The property dates back to the early part of the 20th century and features a wealth of period charms whilst being extensively modernised to create a stylish family home. Character features include an exposed brick chimney breast, wood floors and coving.
The property is entered via an inviting entrance hall leading to the dual aspect sitting room, which stretches the length of the house and enjoys a bay window to the front and a view over the courtyard garden to the rear. Steps lead down to the lower ground floor, which is again the length of the house and encompasses a light-filled kitchen/dining room. The open plan design creates a sociable space both suited to family life and entertaining, with the preparation and dining areas separated by a breakfast bar. The kitchen is fitted with a selection of timeless fitted units in a monochrome colour scheme and offers space for freestanding appliances in addition to a Bosch double oven and electric hob.
The three bedrooms are arranged across the first and second floors, with the master bedroom occupying much of the first floor and offering a generous space for relaxing, including a luxurious en suite bathroom with walk-in glass shower. Also on the first floor is a modern family bathroom, equally well presented and with a bath and shower over. On the second floor, the two double bedrooms area also of a good size.
North Gardens enjoys a sought-after address at the very heart of the city centre, on the edge of Brighton’s famous Laines.

Also within easy reach is the seafront with its plentiful leisure amenities and coastal walks. Equally, the South Downs, Brighton Marina and the city’s many parks are easily accessible.
