This immaculately presented home has contemporary interiors, beautifully balanced alongside period charm. The property is ideal for both family life and entertaining, with clean, bright, spacious rooms throughout. The cleverly conceived, impressive, front to back ground floor living space has been created from what was once three rooms and features stunning engineered wood flooring. There are new carpets and flooring throughout the entire property.
The property underwent extensive refurbishment in 2015 to turn it back into a family home from two flats. The whole house was stripped out, refitted and redecorated, to include plumbing, heating, and electricals. Chimney breasts were removed to make the floor space bigger than average houses in the area and the ceilings were heightened. A loft conversion created the fourth bedroom with en-suite shower room.
The entrance hallway is inviting thanks to the genius of an architectural glass wall which extends alongside the staircase. The reception space opens off the hall and extends to 25ft, with bespoke shutters on the front bay window, which are echoed on all the windows. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with gloss units, quartz work surfaces, a breakfast bar and an array of premium integrated appliances, and opens onto the pretty rear garden.
The bedrooms are arranged across the first and second floors, including a lovely double bedroom with en-suite shower on the first floor and a superb master suite on the second floor, also with en-suite shower and space for a large wardrobe. Both other bedrooms are good size doubles and there is a further family bathroom.
Alpine Road is in the popular Poet’s Corner area, close to central Hove and its many amenities, and Portland Road which has undergone huge regeneration and is full of great bars, pubs and cafes and shops. The area has a great community for families, with regular events at Stoneham Park, and the seafront less than a mile away. Alpine Road is also just 0.7 miles from Aldrington train station, which offers direct services to London and Gatwick Airport. Brighton city centre is just 2.5 miles to the east. The A27, A23 and M23, as well as Gatwick Airport, are easily accessible. Local schools include Hove Junior, the Outstanding (Oftsted rated) West Hove Infant, Aldrington Primary, Hove Park School, the Bilingual Primary School and Blatchington Mill Schools.
To the front there is a small paved garden separating the property from the road, where there is street parking (permit required). The rear garden is designed in a low-maintenance courtyard style, with a timber decked terrace providing an ample space for outdoor entertaining. A border at the rear has a number of mature shrubs and trees.
