Extensively modernised and expanded to suit the needs of a growing family, this attractive four-bedroom home is a great blank canvas with a range of modern and period features. In excellent condition throughout, the flexible accommodation includes a large family space featuring a kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances and a mix of roomy granite-topped cabinets. The family room opens onto a patio area and a wing of ancillary accommodation, including a shower room, large office and single garage. Downstairs also includes formal living spaces: a large living room with bay window and wood burning stove and a separate dining room. The double-height hallway has two large storage cupboards and a feature staircase leading up to a galleried landing. On the second floor there are four good-sized bedrooms – one en suite, three with built in wardrobes – and a family bathroom with a glass-walled shower.
The house occupies a corner plot between Woodruff Avenue and Tongdean Avenue in one of Hove’s most prestigious residential areas. The convenient thoroughfare of Dyke Road is at the end of the street and allows access to the A27, A23 and Brighton. Green areas are also easily accessible, with Hove Park (0.5 miles) within walking distance and the South Downs National Park a short drive away via the A23. Also walkable from the property is a Waitrose supermarket with more shops and cafes found nearby. Local schools include Windlesham House, Aldrington Primary, Hove Park and Blatchington Mill Schools. TRAIN SERVICES: Hove Station is walkable (0.9 miles) with services to London and Gatwick Airport.
Accessed by imposing gates from Woodruff Avenue, the house has a commanding presence. The front of the house is encircled by high brick walls, with a sweep of paved driveway and an area of lawn. Great care has been taken to establish greenery in raised beds and along the side of the house, such as trimmed boxus and climbing plants. A set of steps leads up to a gate which has access to Tongdean Avenue. There is a double garage extension with a side door into the property; another new addition to the house is a porch constructed from timber. The rear garden is split into two areas and is ideal for families, with a paved section to the side – an ideal space for entertaining – and a lawn area surrounded by flowerbeds, trees and hedging.
To the rear of the ground floor is a series of rooms which would be ideal to use as an annex or office space if required. With separate toilet, kitchen and own front door, minimal amounts of reconfiguration would be needed so that it could be used for a relative or similar.
