With an attractive leafy setting convenient for local transport links, this detached four-bedroom home enjoys a spacious plot suitable for the growing family. Originally built in 1924, the property has been extensively modernised and extended throughout to include a rear extension that enhances the feeling of light and space. Interiors have been designed in a neutral style and include wooden floors, modern timber beams and stripped doors. The ground floor is mostly open plan and therefore suited for both family life and entertaining, and features a vast 27ft reception/dining room, kitchen and family room arranged around a central hallway. Both the living and family room feature bay windows and offer flexible options for relaxing and formal entertaining areas. The contemporary kitchen has been fitted with a good mix of wall and base units in a fashionable cream gloss complemented by granite worktops.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and one single bedroom arranged together, including an 18ft master bedroom with modern en suite shower room. The three additional bedrooms (two with built-in storage) have use of a family bathroom with P-shaped bath.
Conveniently located in a peaceful setting tucked off one of Brighton and Hove’s best-connected roads, Barrowfield Drive is desirable for the commuter with excellent transport links close by. Dyke Road Avenue allows fast access to the A27 and A23 which are just minutes away as is the South Downs National Park. The property is within short distance (0.4 miles) of Preston Park Station with direct services to London and Gatwick Airport. Close by are a number of green spaces including Hove Park, Preston Park with its velodrome and Hollingbury Park Golf Course. Local schools are plentiful such as Windlesham, Aldrington Primary, Hove Park School and Blatchington Mill schools. Nearby amenities include a Waitrose supermarket and Goldstone Retail Park, with many other cafes and restaurants located nearby. For leisure amenities, Brighton centre is located just along the coast, with the beach easily accessible.
The property is set back from the road with a brick-paved driveway to the front providing off-street parking for several cars, with a low hedge and palm tree adding interest. Further parking is available in a double-length integral garage with up-and-over door. To the right a wrought-iron side gate leads to the rear garden which is of an excellent size, featuring a central lawn, timber decking terrace and surrounding brick and wooden panel walls affording a good degree of privacy.
