A pretty detached family home with four bedrooms, period features, large secluded garden, parking and garage and with plenty of scope to redesign and add to, according to requirement. Quiet Lloyd Road is in the more southern part of sought-after Hove Park, with several popular schools nearby and both Hove and Preston Park train stations easily accessible.
The property is situated on the south-eastern side of the road so has a wonderfully sunny and mature garden. The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout and is eminently livable. However, it also offers excellent scope for modernisation and extension, as many other houses in the street have already done. Believed to date back to the 1920s the property retains many attractive character features, including the original servants’ bells, lead light windows and exposed beams. With its mix of tile-hung, brick and render façade the property has excellent kerb appeal.
The traditional yet versatile layout begins at the covered porch which leads into an internal entrance hallway, off which lead a guest cloakroom, the dining room with door to the garden, a separate front sitting room and the kitchen. The kitchen has space for a breakfast table as well as two large spaces off it which act as utility room and large pantry respectively.
Upstairs, the four double bedrooms are arranged together around off a good size landing and down the hall, with three benefiting from fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has plumbing for a sink which could form an en suite bathroom if desired (stnc) and there is a shower room and separate wc.
Lloyd Road is situated among similar detached family residences in a peaceful and sought-after residential road in Hove’s prestigious Hove Park District. The road is close to central Hove and its many amenities, including the shops of Goldstone Retail Park and a nearby Waitrose supermarket. Within easy distance are both the seafront and Hove train station (0.6 miles) and Preston Park train station (0.7 miles), which offer direct services to Gatwick Airport and London. Nearby is Hove Park, Hove Recreation Ground and a range of local services with Brighton city centre in close proximity. The A27, A23 and Gatwick can be easily accessed by local road communications. Local schools include Windlesham, Hove Junior, West Hove Infant, Brunswick Primary, Aldrington Primary, Hove Park School, the Bilingual Primary School and Blatchington Mill Schools.
The property is set behind a pretty and low-maintenance front garden, with a garage to one side and a hardstanding driveway with space for a number of cars. The rear garden is of an excellent size, with steps leading from the dining room down to a paved patio area adjoining the house and a large pond. There is also a sizeable lawn enclosed by mature shrubs and borders and a wooden summerhouse.
