Believed to have been built circa 1895, this beautiful, three storey, period house is considered to be in very good decorative order, having been well maintained and upgraded. It is light and spacious throughout, with an abundance of character features, including stained glass windows, high ceilings and cornice details.
On the ground floor the kitchen-family room runs front to back, with a door through to a recently added half-glazed utility room with a door to the rear garden. The kitchen is contemporary in style with a large central island and dark stained wooden floorboards underfoot. The impressive entrance hallway sets off the same dark stained floors and also houses a guest cloakroom and storage cupboard. The rear living room provides the second reception space and is dual-aspect with tri-fold doors leading out to the garden.
The first floor comprises three bedrooms, the largest spanning the whole width of the house, and a contemporary bathroom with P-shaped bath and large rainfall style shower. On the second floor the master bedroom has a huge floor-to-ceiling window offering views across Hove's rooftops. The en-suite bathroom is contemporary with both bath and shower.
The house is well positioned on one of Hove’s premier tree lined avenues, between the seafront at one end and New Church Road at the other. Richardson Road is nearby where there are are a couple of good cafés, a newsagents and a pharmacy. The seafront caters for all manner of activities, from strolling along the prom, to seafront runs and Watersports at Hove Lagoon. There are also several well-regarded state and private schools in the surrounding area, catering for all age groups.
A paved patio at the back of the house provides for outdoor dining, whilst wooden railway sleeper edged borders lead to the back of the garden, along a central lawn. The rear of the garden is decked, with two large painted sheds, reminiscent of Hove beach huts, providing plenty of storage. The front garden has been newly designed and features a central Agave plant surrounded by wooden railway sleepers and slate.
Aldrington train station is 0.9 miles away on foot, whilst Hove mainline station is 1.2 miles away. The bus services along New Church Road and the seafront are frequent, connecting to the city centre and beyond.
