A very pretty Edwardian house, built in 1904 on a tree-lined road facing the picturesque Queens Park. The Edwardian style is popular for its timeless appearance and their obsession with privacy meant houses were set back from the road which has made an attractive drive for two cars and a garden provides interest.

The decorative covered entrance is welcoming with a handsome front door with leaded stained glass leading to a large porch which in turn leads on to a stunning hallway with stained glass windows, feature fireplace and the mahogany banister with painted wood paneling leading to the first floor.

Under the stairs is a door to a cellar currently being used as a workshop with a small window to the garden. The family room with its box bay sash window overlooks the front garden and on to Queens Park. The elegant original fireplace is the central point of this room, set back under an arched ceiling with stained glass windows to either side.

There is also a sitting room with a large window to the front and French doors leading out to the rear garden, a wonderful room with an open fireplace and further period features. Along the hall is the dining/reception room with stripped wood flooring, a double sash window which overlooks the patio and in the corner of the room is a built-in pantry, perfectly located next to the kitchen.

At the back of the house, opening on to the garden is the kitchen/breakfast room, a light and bright space with dual aspect sash windows and doors that look out to the garden. The kitchen cabinets are wooden with space for a table making it a sociable room.

Up on the landing, past the door leading to the west facing balcony is the main bedroom with direct views of the park and the clock tower. The secondary glazed box bay sash windows offer distant sea views.

Period detailing creates a charming room benefiting from a luxury en-suite with a stunning stained glass window, feature fireplace and large bath for lazy soaks.

Across the hall is the elegant bedroom two with its sash window enjoying parkland views. Next door is the family bathroom with traditional style fittings and a stained-glass window. Then across the hall, bedroom three is a peaceful room overlooking the patio below and to the rear is bedroom four, a dual aspect room with both windows enjoying views of your mature well-planted garden.

The garden is well established and well maintained. A feature pond with its tiled edge is great for wildlife. Up on the higher area there is a lovely southerly aspect which enjoys all day sunshine and is a fantastic area for Alfresco entertaining. The patio immediately outside the kitchen doors is also a pleasant dining area with clematis and honeysuckle adding aroma and colour. To the side of the kitchen is a passage way to the front garden with a side gate for security. 

This characterful and pretty family home is ideally located close by to two fantastic primary schools, both with outstanding Ofsted reports. The award winning Brighton College is also nearby. Queens Park itself is just opposite, approximately fifteen acres of public park with well-planted trees and shrubs, a large duck pond, a sizeable and well-equipped children's play area, a café, an extensive dog-free area, a scented garden for people with disabilities, a bowling green, tennis courts and an area that is left untended in order to encourage wildlife.
