Property description

Style: semi detached house Bedrooms: 4/5 Living rooms: 3/4 Area: 2259 sq.ft Outside: front & rear Parking: off street Location: Withdean why you’ll like it: Sweep into a glamorous coastal lifestyle in this spacious semi-detached house. Looking traditional outside, inside has been transformed into an impressive family home ideal for entertaining, and age old values have been honoured with any period features carefully retained, new timbers being locally sourced, and the use of brick, flint and craftsmen during construction of the extensions – which are dated in carved stone. The unusually creative history of this house extends even into the scented front garden where a rare Japanese Pocket Handkerchief tree, planted by an artist owner, invites you past the hard standing to the choice of doors – one formal, the other for family. the period home The welcoming entrance hall gleams in colours from the front door glass and conceals a smart guest cloakroom at the foot of the downward staircase. To the right, sunshine and garden views stream through the large bay of a formal reception with refined proportions, a working fireplace for winter and plenty of space in which to relax or to enjoy with friends. Opposite, double doors lead to a serene dining room where the iron fireplace has traditional cabinets to one side, picked out in the subtle tones of Farrow & Ball. Up stairs with unique patterning to the bannisters, the first of the double bedrooms is calm and quiet with far reaching views over a sea of gardens. It has pretty period features and it’s ideal for a child as there’s a discreet connection to what is currently the master bedroom. Next door, a bright and cheerful bathroom has a roll top bath and prestigious Burlington fittings in keeping with the age of the house. The second double bedroom is also a good size with a vaulted ceiling and leafy views making it instantly restful. Also at the front, so you can cat nap in the sun, the third double bedroom was once the master as it is made private by mature shrubs and trees and the chic en suite shower room shimmers in gold. Just a few steps up is a secluded mezzanine beneath a skylight- an ideal study area. the master bedroom suite – first floor The heart of this home, the master bedroom unites the generations. Connected to the first bedroom in the period part of the home, it is also reached from the new, contemporary family base. Stretching up to the very apex of the roof with four skylights to bring in the night sky, this airy and very private space opens to a Juliette balcony with a sweeping vista over Withdean’s leafy hills to the encircling Downs. There are all the wardrobes you could dream of and the meticulous attention to detail continues in the beautiful en suite bathroom which combines vintage chic and designer fixtures. the kitchen/diner, playroom and garden Step straight into the 21st century, LA style- so fabulous it’s appeared in a glossy magazine! Perfect for parties, classic parquet flooring gleams throughout an astonishing living space where walls of glass fold open to lush planting and dynamic landscaping. There’s skill behind this design as the back of the house flows together, guests can dine beneath the stars thanks to a huge skylight whilst the working kitchen is safely tucked away from the main flow to the garden behind a sociable central island which has an integrated 5 ring gas hob and a wine cooler. A light touch has kept the runs practical but stylish with entertaining in mind: The twin ovens have a warming tray, the mixed units conceal sophisticated storage solutions, the dishwasher is already integrated for you and the high spec surfaces are lit by ambient lighting. A room for all seasons and for the family to enjoy together, there’s a wood burning stove adding warmth and character, and there’s a door to the parking by the stairs to the utility room, so kits can go straight into the machine. Down a private staircase, there’s the family friendly utility area within a kitchenette which has an integrated hob and oven, and a useful cloakroom is carefully tucked away. Running along the back of the building with tall, folding doors leading to a lit terrace paved with Indian Sandstone, a spacious room has been used as a playroom, guest bedroom and comfortable working space. It is also worth noting that this floor is connected by a private staircase to the vaulted bedroom at the top of the side extension, so this part of the house could easily form a peaceful annexe if you required one. Outside, generous gardens gently step down from a broad, lit dining terrace to a central lawn large enough for play. There are nooks and crannies to explore and fascinating plants to identify – thanks to the travelling artist occupier- and tucked away at the far end of the extensive grounds, you’ll get an instant holiday feel as a cedar chalet with power, insulation and built in bar also has a mezzanine sleeping platform and there’s a decked area outside for breakfast in the sun. Brighton and Preston Park Stations, serving Gatwick and London, are easy to reach by car, bus or cab and if you commute by car the A23/M23 are quick to get to as is the A27 to the Amex Stadium near Lewes.
