Overlooking leafy Hove Park, this stunning detached residence is located on one of Hove’s most sought-after residential roads, with lovely views to the front and fantastic gardens to the rear including a delightful covered sitting area and a swimming pool with adjustable cover. Close to commuter links, the seafront and Brighton city centre, the house would make an excellent family home, with well-presented accommodation spanning two floors with spacious, light-filled rooms that will suit the needs of a growing family and period features complementing the modern décor. With its welcoming aspect from the road, the house is accessed by an in-and-out driveway, with a garage providing ample storage space. Inside the hallway leads through an arch into a stylish kitchen/breakfast room which acts as a real ‘hub’ of the family home, with its sociable breakfast bar and space for comfortable chairs. A good mix of wall and floor cabinets provides lots of room for keeping things tucked away, with additional useful storage in the adjoining utility room. The mainly neutral colour scheme of white painted cabinets and grey laminate worktops will suit most colour schemes, and there are a number of integrated appliances including a double oven, gas hob and extractor fan, with space for an American-style fridge/freezer. Double doors from the hallway open onto a generously-proportioned 28ft sitting room, currently used as a living/dining space with a cosy seating area at the front overlooking the park, and a dining area to the rear where French windows lead onto the patio.
Upstairs a spacious landing opens onto a lovely balcony with views over the trees of Hove Park and four well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which offer built-in wardrobe storage. The master bedroom overlooks the front of the house and the park, as does the third bedroom which with its bay window would make a light-filled home office or children’s bedroom. The second bedroom has a wall of useful built-in storage space, including hanging wardrobes, high cupboards and a dressing table, with great scope as a guest bedroom. Families will appreciate the two bathrooms on busy mornings, one with a cubicle shower, the other with an integrated corner bath with shower over.
The house is situated on a prestigious road facing onto Hove Park, close to a range of local amenities with Brighton city centre just 2.5 miles along the coast and the beach less than two miles walk away. The convenient thoroughfare of Dyke Road is reached via nearby Woodruff Avenue and allows access to the A27, A23 and Gatwick. Green areas are also readily accessible with the park opposite, Hove Lawns on the seafront and the South Downs a short drive away via Dyke Road. Walkable from the property is a Waitrose supermarket, Hove Recreation Ground and a number of shops and cafes found nearby. Local schools include Windlesham House, Aldrington Primary, Hove Park, the Bilingual Primary School and Blatchington Mill Schools. TRAIN SERVICES: Hove Station is walkable (0.8 miles) with services to London and Gatwick Airport.
The house has a fantastic rear garden with plenty of space for alfresco entertainment, including an open summerhouse that would make an excellent spot for evening drinks with friends. The low-maintenance paved patio area has room for garden furniture, pots and a barbecue, with steps leading up to a second level where there is a fabulous covered heated swimming pool set in a lawn surrounded by mature flowerbeds. On sunny days the roof can be pulled back to let the sun in. The front of the house is accessed by a good-sized in-and-out driveway with room for several cars in front of single garage which has an electric up-and-over door. Side access leads to the garden.
