The agent is big on detail, but light on heritage. So unless you know better, this is a 1960s five-bedroom modernist property in Brighton, East Sussex, presumably an individual architect design.
It’s an interesting design too, but one that straddles somewhere between the past and the present, The exterior is period and there are a few details from the original era too (like that fireplace for example). But the overall feel is modern family home with character.
Space is certainly a plus here, with the house coming with a self-contained studio annex, which can be accessed by a separate entrance. It’s also said to be in ‘one of the most sought after locations in the city’, should you be precious about your postcode.
Enter the house via the entrance vestibule with cloakroom, which also has exposed brick walls. That takes you to the dual-aspect living room with that feature elevated see-through fireplace, which also leads to the kitchen/breakfast room with all the modern fittings you would expect. On top of that, there’s a study (aka fitted office suite), a utility room and a dining/family room.
Head upstairs and you’ll find the master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en-suite, a second bedroom with en-suite shower room, three more bedrooms (one with a further shower room) and a family bathroom.
On the lower ground floor, you’ll find space currently used as a home cinema and further guest bedroom, plus plenty of storage space. There’e also a studio room/flat with modern fitted kitchen and bathroom.
Head outside and you’ll discover a rear lawned garden plus patio areas, a front garden, double electric wood panelled front gates and a good size sweeping driveway.
As you might have guessed, this place doesn’t come cheap. £1,395,000 is the asking price.
