Set back off the street with a front garden and shrubs, the pathway leads to an original style front door with pretty stained glass window. A welcoming hallway greets you with wood flooring, stripped wood banister and stairs rising to the first floor. Stripped wood doors add charm and character to the house as do the picture rails and cornicing.
The lounge, which is opened up to the dining room to create a lovely large entertaining space has high ceilings and a feature fireplace with gas flame effect coal fire and wood surround. The box bay window lets lots of light into the room, the sash windows have been draft proofed and with the colonial style shutters create a cosy room. In the dining area the chimney breast has been removed and wood bookcases fitted to provide plenty of storage.
Towards the rear of the hallway is the large eat in kitchen/breakfast room. A chef's delight with plenty of granite work surfaces above wood cabinets. The duel fuel Rangemaster cooker, american fridge freezer and Bosch dishwasher can stay, subject to negotiation. Doors lead out to a delightful west facing courtyard garden with mature shrub borders providing colour.
Returning to the house on the first floor are two large bedrooms, especially the front bedroom spanning the entire width of the house, with box bay sash windows, feature fireplace adding to the charm as well as picture rails and cornicing. The bedroom next door is a good double with views over the garden and distant sea views. Towards the rear the original bathroom and back bedroom have been swapped, creating a study and a luxuriously large bathroom benefiting from utility cupboards so appliances can be neatly tucked away.
On the second floor is the large loft conversion and en-suite shower room. The bedroom with dual aspect windows bathes the room in light and offers incredible far reaching views across Brighton roof tops and towards the sea, a wonderful place to enjoy spectacular sunsets.
Upper Abbey Road is in an ideal location just a few blocks from the seafront and Kemp Town Village, which is well considered for its mix of boutique shops and cafes, as well as being within an approximate ten minute walk from Brighton College, the leading independent school, or several good primary schools also within easy distance.
