Perfectly positioned within the Golden Triangle of Preston Park, this four-bedroom Victorian home is a must-see. Within walking distance of coffee shops and the popular community of Fiveways, this house also benefits from being in the catchment area of Brighton’s top schools. Retaining a wealth of its period charm teamed with modern fixtures, fittings, and features, we think buyers will truly love this modern family home.
As you enter through a stylish yellow front door you’re immersed in an entrance hall, ideal for storing coats, shoes, and the occasional paddleboard. What strikes you about this home on entry is the abundance of natural light that cascades through the house. The open-plan living/dining room is a great space to relax and entertain guests. Wonderful high ceilings, an original fireplace, and the large bay window to the front bring period charm into an otherwise modern space.
Progressing down the hallway, you’ll find clever understairs storage and a WC. The bright kitchen diner at the back of the house is the heart of the home and our sellers have done a fantastic job in designing this room to an incredibly high standard. The kitchen offers a wealth of cupboard and worktop space, with room for another dining or living area. The floor has recently been replaced with a modern concrete style tile that pairs perfectly with the anthracite bi-folding doors opening onto a large terrace and West-facing garden. The terrace provides the perfect space for alfresco dining, and the low-maintenance artificial lawn is perfect for children and pets alike. Despite being in the heart of Preston Park you’ll be astonished at the peace and quiet that this garden offers.
The period staircase with a modern yellow carpet runner leads to three good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The family bathroom has been recently renovated to a high standard and features a shower and bathtub set to stylish herringbone tiles. Bedroom four at the rear overlooks the garden. A good-sized double, this is perfect for a children’s bedroom or as our sellers are currently using it as a multi-purpose home office/gym. Bedroom three, directly off of the landing is another good-sized double. The front-facing bedroom is a truly stunning light-filled room that features a large bay window and an original fireplace.
At the top of the second flight of stairs, you’ll find a converted attic room complete with an en-suite. This room benefits from large Velux windows and offers beautiful views across Brighton. The large bedroom complete with clever eaves storage makes it a perfect self-contained guest floor or it could equally be used as the ‘principle’ bedroom.
The original wooden flooring throughout this room really denotes the period Victorian elegance, combined with the contemporary finish our clients have applied.
Overall we think Lowther Road is an absolute gem in this area, perfect for a buyer who wants a ‘turn key’ property and wants to be within walking distance of a mainline train station, outstanding primary and secondary schools, independent coffee shops, and large, open parks.

Finding a mortgage
Buying a house is a massive investment and getting it just slightly wrong can be costly. Unless you have big savings, chances are you’re going to have to get a mortgage. It’s a loan secured against the property which means if you can’t meet the repayments the lender may repossess your home and sell it to get their money back.
The better you understand mortgages and everything to do with them, the better armed you will be to get the very best deal. With MMR in place, you’ll need to review your finances themselves before approaching possible lenders to see whether you can afford the monthly payments now and if interest rates go up, which they will…
What is MMR?
When it comes to finding a mortgage you have several options: mortgage brokers, individual banks or searching online. Again, it’s important to do your research. Searching online first, gives you a good idea of what’s available, but an independent mortgage broker can provide a more in-depth search and help you through the process. Being independent holds great value as they are not bias to any particular lenders or deals, they will give you their honest opinion and take away the stress of working your way through the mortgage market, they work for you to find you the best package to suit your requirements.
