This beautiful example of an early Edwardian detached family home offers extensive accommodation with a vast array of stunning original features that you will struggle to find anywhere else. The house is shielded from view behind a high wall and private electric gates but once in the grounds your breath will be taken away by the amazing frontage that the house displays and beautiful architecture. This house was clearly a labour of love for the original architect as some of the original detail will give away once inside, from the more obvious wood panelled walls to the more detailed individually designed door furniture, from the beautiful corniced ceilings to the individually panelled stained glass windows, you will find these amazing original features throughout the property.
The house can be found in this high profile, yet exclusive location on the Brighton & Hove border, providing easy access in to the City Centre as well as great access to both the A27 and A23. There are great local schools, both private and state schools as well as good local shopping facilities and within close proximity to Preston Park station with it’s mainline to London Victoria.
Providing superbly proportioned rooms and almost 7000 Square Feet of accommodation there is plenty of room for a large family but alternative uses for the rooms if you are just looking for a large home of this stature. The spacious entrance hall gives you a flavour of what to expect and there are four reception rooms with a lovely family room providing a comfortable and welcoming feel whilst overlooking the garden and a more formal dining room with wood panelled walls. There is also a games/snooker room and a second reception/sitting room as well as a bright & spacious conservatory and an extensively fitted, modern kitchen and breakfast room.
The beautiful galleried landing is a feature in its own right and the majority of the bedroom accommodation can be found up on the first floor. The impressive main bedroom is at the front of the house providing a westerly aspect and has a spacious en-suite bathroom. Bedroom two is at the southerly tip of the house overlooking the rear garden and also with an en-suite bathroom. There are an additional four more bedrooms on this floor as well as a family bathroom, en-suite shower room and separate toilet. The second floor houses a further very spacious room which could be a bedroom or an office and also has an en-suite shower room. There is also extensive eaves storage accessible on the top floor.
The grounds are beautifully maintained and the rear garden has been superbly landscaped with a circular shaped lawn, rear terrace and ornamental pond. The front garden is laid mainly to lawn and there is extensive parking for several cars as well as a double garage and outbuilding providing further accommodation if required.
The eventual buyer of this beautiful home will be someone looking for a combination of appreciating the history and unique features of this house, someone looking for the sheer scale of accommodation on offer and someone who will enjoy spending time moulding the house as they would ideally want it to be.
