Introducing an exceptional opportunity to purchase an imposing five-bedroom detached residence presented to the market for the first time in over seventy years. Originally built in 1922, this exclusive property boasts a sizeable plot that presents a significant canvas for those seeking to modernise and expand to their own specifications. Seamlessly blending grandeur and charm, this family home is situated on one of the finest roads in Hove and offered to market with no ongoing chain.

Upon entry, you are greeted by a grand hallway, leading to all rooms on the ground floor, with ample space for shoes and coats as well as access to the W/C. To the right, you enter the second reception room providing a versatile space currently set up as a formal study whilst featuring elegant wooden panelling, a fireplace and bay window overlooking the front aspect.

Towards the rear, the spacious living room awaits centred around the feature brick built fireplace whilst enjoying panoramic views of the landscaped rear garden through the bay window with doors leading directly out – making this an incredibly warm and inviting space to relax with the family year round.

Adjacent, the dining room is aptly positioned for entertaining guests running twenty feet in length and providing a picturesque view of the rear aspect. The kitchen seamlessly follows, well-equipped, with an abundance of wall and base units, countertop surface, space for white goods, pantry storage, space for a breakfast table and chairs as well as a convenient utility room.

The first floor accommodates five bedrooms, comprised of two sizeable bedrooms and three further comfortable double bedrooms, with the principle room benefitting from a large window overlooking the front aspect providing a glimpse of the sea. It is worth noting, the two larger rooms feature a sink unit, a nod to the period this property was built and an excellent opportunity to add an en-suite to each room.

The bedrooms are serviced by a modern family bathroom featuring a bath and separate shower, heated towel rail, sink unit and vanity mirror whilst a separate W/C can be found adjacent. The first floor is completed by a handy boiler room / airing cupboard.

Externally, the garden is a particularly noteworthy feature of this home having been landscaped to provide not only a scenic retreat but also an incredibly useable space for all to enjoy. As you step out, you are greeted by an array of mature trees, shrubs and flowers deceiving you into believing you might be in the middle of the countryside with the lined perimeter ensuring complete privacy. To the left, you find a shaded patio providing space for a table and chairs whilst the majority is laid to lawn with the largest area, previously a tennis court, being completely level making this an excellent space for outdoor gatherings or for children and pets to play.

To the rear of the garden, you find a secluded area historically used as a flower bed / vegetable patch. To the side of the property, a feature pond remains alongside a greenhouse and access to the rear of the garage whilst the opposite side provides access from the front and a secure, brick built, storage shed.

To the front, this home features an 'in and out' driveway that leads to a double garage, providing ample parking and convenience for residents and guests alike. A comparable level of care and attention has been paid to the front garden further enhancing the curb appeal of an already characterful and enticing family home.

A truly once in a lifetime opportunity and one not to be missed.
