Blending stained glass windows, wood floors and period fireplaces with modern touches and superior proportions, this detached family home has plenty of period charm, character and elegance.
A large central entrance hallway gives onto two spacious reception rooms, providing distinct spaces for the family to spread out. The main sitting room flows into a dual aspect dining room with under-floor heating, with the patio beyond. Across the hallway is a second reception room.
The large kitchen/breakfast room adds a contemporary twist with under-floor heating, sleek units and integrated appliances. The back door leads off the adjacent utility/boot room and a convenient shower room. A separate cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
The wood floors and period charm continue upstairs where the generous principal bedroom boasts a walk-in wardrobe. A further large double bedroom has ample storage and there are two more lovely bedrooms. Cleverly designed, the family bathroom features a glass walled rainfall shower and bidet, while a freestanding roll-top bath adds a touch of luxury.

WHAT THE OWNER SAYS:
"What attracted me to ‘Kenwyn’ was that is is a stylish, well built house with a secluded garden including a vegetable patch and fruit trees with so much space for a growing family. I soon discovered that its location, just a few minutes from Preston Park Station with direct trains to London Victoria and Gatwick, is also close to the Sussex countryside and yet still easily walkable into Brighton with its shops restaurants and the beach."
