About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Prime

Set back from the road behind its gated driveway and walled garden in the highly sought after Tongdean Conservation Area, this immensely elegant Tudorbethan home was built in 1902 for W Chater Lea by E Wallis Long. Today, the breath-taking interior of Cransley Lodge is impeccably presented throughout with a wealth of original period detailing and first class modern finishing touches.

From the distinguished fireplaces to the stunning central hallway and staircase, every aspect of this home is finished to an exceptionally high specification, while its large gardens and terrace provide plenty of idyllic outdoor space.

With an exquisite eye for detail and a hugely refined sense of style, five wonderfully presented reception rooms create an undeniable feeling of grace and grandeur. Beautifully lit by charming bay and leaded windows, rich wood panelling lends a sophisticated backdrop to the games room, formal dining room and sitting room, all of which add a truly remarkable amount of space to relax and entertain. The dining room and spacious triple aspect family room have a calm and peaceful feel with soft subtle colour schemes and focal point fireplaces. The superior morning room offers views of the idyllic grounds and opens onto the terrace, while a sympathetically yet contemporary styled kitchen is well-appointed and arranged with Shaker-style cabinets, a central island and Aga.

The outstanding period features and attention to detail flows throughout each of the seven bedrooms. Offering a master class in design a sumptuous principle bedroom opens onto a luxurious en suite bathroom with its striking central bath and sleek wet room shower. Two further bedrooms benefit from equally stylish en suite bath and shower rooms of their own, while one enjoys views of the garden from its private balcony. There is a room and WC above the garage which may be used as a studio or office.

Virtual tour available on request.

Setting the tone for this distinctive home, a gated driveway leads the way to the elegant facade of this Brighton property bordered by a large and secluded walled garden with its water fountain and large lawns. Step out from the notable conservatory onto a broad terrace that supplies the perfect vantage point to admire the landscaped grounds and an idyllic spot to relax and entertain. Encompassed by well-planted beds of vibrant shrubs and flowers and the greenery of statuesque trees, the walled rear garden is as graceful as Cransley Lodge itself.

Conveniently located in a peaceful setting on one of Brighton and Hove’s best-connected roads, Cransley Lodge 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 (0.8 miles) of Preston Park Station with direct services to London and Gatwick Airport.
